I'd be surprised if AF ever do anything better than Funeral. It's a stunning album. They've been getting progressively less good since then, though still head and shoulders above most other bands around.

Funeral is their best, although I have Suburbs before Neon Bible. What do you dislike about the Suburbs?

I could be mistaken, but didn't StarWisher say they were absolutely fantastic when she saw them?

I think she did. It's gonna be so gooooood! a-hard-days-night-john-6

 

I think I prefer The Suburbs, but I have a feeling that Funeral will grow on me and become my favourite. They're both amazing albums, though.

Where's Neon Bible in that? I haven't heard it yet, but I'm playing it now.Funeral is a grower, most certainly. When I first played it, my first thought was they got better with age. Now it's "impossible to beat that".

Neon Bible has some fantastic songs on it (I'm not sure if there's a thudding heartbeat sound effect at the end of (Antichrist Television Blues) or not), but it isn't nearly as strong as Funeral. Funeral is the only album I've heard which I've really liked every song on, but Neon Bible has some relatively weak songs (the middle), and is too bombastic at times. There isn't enough of Regine.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

Hmmm, let's see…

 

1.- The Beach Boys. I often hear The SMiLE album of Purple Chick, probably their best album, albeit unreleased, and they got very close of beating The Beatles with this one.

 

2.- Queen. I have heard the last album with Freddie in Earth (Innuendo) and among other songs. They were really a powerful band, but slightly far from The Beatles.

 

3.- ABBA. Almost all their singles. They were an amazing band, their songs were great (at least the singles).

 

There might be more bands, but those are the top three.

Foster the People. I've been listening to Pumped up Kicks all night, just because it's that crazy good. Hoping to get my hands on the album Torches soon.

 

Edit: Also forgot about Mumford and Sons. Love Awake My Soul the most.

Once again, another of my my brother's tastes rolling into my taste. Pumped Up Kicks is so bloody good. Oh, and kinda off-topic; Anybody who actually knows, is the fact that The Strokes are putting a song in the FIFA 2012 game embarrassing of smart?

I love the song Pumped Up Kicks. Their other song Helena Beat is really good too. I should listen to their whole album.

I've been getting into the Arctic Monkeys. This band kicks ass I swear.

Smart. FIFA games always have amazing soundtracks.

They're amazing. Try and get your hands on Favourite Worst Nightmares, it's their best album IMO.

I always wonder. Sometimes (over here that is) it's viewed as cheap and useless, or viewed as smart promotion. Thanks.
Oh, and MND, I'll echo Mumford. The last 3 songs are equal to the best ending trio ever, anybody. Even Pepper.

  1. Not a fan of Bowie or that album.
  2. I'm not a huge fan of Carry That Weight, and there's the small matter of Her Majesty.

I'm with Walrus on that one. The ending Ziggy Stardust is full of magic and wonder. Bowie never fails!

Foster The People is good too.

How can you say that? Her Majesty is charming. Strange way to end it but charming.

Well, if he is saying Abbey Road has a better final 3 tracks, the final 3 of AR is Carry That Weight (Meh), The End (Love it) and Her Majesty (again, meh). So I still believe Sigh No More has a better final 3.

Oh okay, I agree with you. I thought you were saying you didn't like Her Majesty somehow.
