1026 Fleet Foxes – Fleet Foxes

Fleet Foxes self-titled debut album was released to critical acclaim in 2008. They went on a hiatus in 2013 to 2016 while vocalist Robin Pecknold pursued an undergraduate degree. The band released their fourth album to Shore in September 2020. My favourite songs are “White Winter Hymnal”, “Ragged Wood”, “Quiet Houses”, “He Doesn’t Know Why”, […]

#950 The Coral – The Coral

British band The Coral released their eponymous debut album in 2002. It was listed in 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die, but it was removed in a later edition. I wonder why it was removed. Maybe it did not age well. The first song gave me a clue why it was removed. I am […]

#932 Gorillaz – Gorillaz

Gorillaz self-titled debut album was released in 2001. They were an instant hit. Guinness World Records list them as the world’s “Most Successful Virtual Band”. In reality, they have only one constant musician member; Damon Albarn of Blur. I think I did not hear much of this album in Europe when it was released. I discovered […]

#894 Le Tigre – Le Tigre

Le Tigre is the band and the name of their debut studio album. I am not excited about listening to another band of feminist playing pop music to political lyrics. I grew up with the Go-Gos, the Supremes, Blondie, Pat Benatar, and a host of other strong females and female led bands. The influence of every girl […]

#887 Slipknot – Slipknot

I can already tell you that I hate Slipknot and their eponymous debut album. I started listening to it before I could gather any information to write about them. Their genre is nu metal. This will be the shortest review yet. I hate the screaming. It sounds like he has something big in his throat […]

#799 Femi Kuti – Femi Kuti

I swear I have heard Femi Kuti before this album. Maybe there is someone else on the list with a similar name. I already know I will not like this eponymous debut album from the Nigerian musician. After listening, I have not changed my mind. I do not like African music. I cannot put my […]

#795 Elastica – Elastica

I am almost sure that I had a copy of Elastica‘s eponymous debut album. I do not remember any of the songs just by looking at the track listing. Trivia: Lead singer Justine Frischmann dated Damon Albarn during the recording of this album. He is listed as Dan Abnormal. Also, she is the daughter of […]
