Hello, and welcome to another post. I’ve been listening to a lot of different albums, and I thought it might be a good idea to recommend some of the albums I think are especially good. So without further ado, let’s get into the post:
- Ladies and gentlemen we are floating in space – Spiritualized
Best track: Ladies and gentlemen we are floating in space (title track)
Why: The album is simply beautiful
- Let them eat chaos – Kate Tempest
Best tracks: Europe is lost / Tunnel Vision
Why: A haunting view of society delivered in spoken word rap
- Pure comedy – Father John Misty
Best tracks: When the god of love returns there’ll be hell to pay / Things it would be helpful to know before the revolution / Two wildly different perspectives / Pure Comedy (title track)
Why: An amazing album protesting against the state of society that sounds like an Alan Watts speech combined with Nick Drake and Elton John.
- xInfinty – Watsky
Best tracks: Lovely thing suite: Conversations / talking to myself / Stick to your guns
Why: A deeply reflective album by rapper Watsky that thinks about the meaning of life, what is death and also criticises society with songs like stick to your guns

Best tracks: You know I’m no good / Tears dry on their own / Just Friends
Why: An amazing album with a great feel by soul / jazz singer Amy Winehouse.
- 2112 – Rush

Best tracks: Airbag / No suprises
Why: Just go listen to it and you’ll know why.

Best tracks: Jesus Alone / Rings of Saturn
Why: Some people say it’s uninteresting, but it’probably the most soulful album of the decade.
- The queen is dead – The smiths
Best tracks: The queen is dead (title track) / There is a light that never goes out.
Why: Probably the only pop album I could truly call a masterpiece.
- Soul Mining – The the

Well, that’s it for now, so
