#1) Queens of the Stone Age Songs For The DeafPrior to the album’s release I remember listening to a raw demo of “Song For The Dead,” which was essentially Dave Grohl’s drum-intro looped on repeat for six minutes.

Mayhem & Station […]

#1) Ghostface Killah Ghostdini the Wizard of Poetry in Emerald CityA crossover from hip hop to R&B that should have never taken place. By comparison, More Fish, an album of leftovers from the brilliant Fishscale, sounds like a classic. #2) UGK UGK 4 LifeSo much for going out on top. #3) Dead Man’s Bones Dead […]

#1) P.O.S Never BetterInnovative, challenging, and oh-so-fresh. Not only a prime candidate for TC album of the year, but a definite contender for hip hop album of the year.

#1) Bat For Lashes “Daniel”The most beautiful song on an album that made Bat For Lashes a household name this year. Well, in some households. #2) The Prodigy “Invaders Must Die”With all three original members of the group together again for the first time in over a decade, the Prodigy never sounded so fierce; even […]
