I haven't heard it yet, but I will be surprised if it isn't How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb by U2.

The Killers "Hot Fuss"
Keane


Rarely do I keep albums in my player for a long period of time but these two are my absolute favorites.

The Killers sound like the grown children of an 80s Brit-rock band, and Keane is like Coldplay on a permanent ecstacy pill melody.

Even Green Day's is fairly new, I truly believe they ripped us all a new earhole. Great album.

Ghostface Killah proves once again -- that besides RZA -- he is the only "true" artist of the Wu-Tang Clan. "The Pretty Toney album" is a definite keeper.

Disappointments include:
A Perfect Circle (too boring and awful song selection)
Mos Def (should keep Black Jack Johsnon separate from Mos Def)
Velvet Revolver (very very average; although live they're great)

I don't get into much of the new music (and to me, "new" is anything 90's and beyond), but Silvertide's debut CD kicked my ass. You'd almost swear that it was the Black Crows recording under a new name.

I'd say the sound is alot closer to the first 4 than the last 3 were but it's still has some distortion. It's a great album though, some really good songs on it. My favs being Netherbound, Black Angel White Angel and 1000 Devils Reign. Funny thing is my favorite of his albums is Blackacidevil.

In order to keep with my theory I stated in another thread within this forum, I'll say that every band listed here so far is without a doubt the worst band I've ever heard.

Seriously though, I came in to say that for me, I'd say it's been Killswitch Engage's "End of Heartache" which someone has already suggested. I'm also going to check out a few of the other albums listed so far...a lot of which I've never heard of. I've read some good "professional" reviews, and see more positive reviews here...so I'll check 'em out.

The only other band that's been absolutely glued in my brain has been Skindred (although I think their debut and only album came out a year or two ago). I've enjoyed the album "Babylon" so much that I purchased it again when it got reissued. A few tracks from the first release were removed, some funky little interlude type stuff was put in and 3 new songs were recorded for it (4 if you count the hidden acoustic performance of Pressure). I've also caught them live twice so far this year and am hoping to see them a 3rd time in December if I can assure I get the day off.

and
The Killers - Hot Fuss

The Isis is great, but not quite as good as Oceanic.

Wow, you could've read my mind. I'd also include the Arcade Fire's "Funeral" and Tom Waits' "Real Gone" on that list.

Disappointing for me: the latest Elvis Costello, "The Delivery Man," which I admire but can't really get into.
