Album artwork of 'Demon Days' by Gorillaz

Demon Days Gorillaz

A cartoonish odyssey bristling with creative energy. The whimsy of the band's debut album is replaced by a biting sombreness very much of the 21st century.

Album artwork of 'Origin of Symmetry' by Muse

Origin of Symmetry Muse

There are few better highs than Muse in top gear. It’s breathless, explosive music; the kind that compels listeners to pick up an instrument or start a band.

Album artwork of 'First Impressions of Earth' by The Strokes

First Impressions of Earth The Strokes

A model misunderstood album; flawed, overdrawn, deserving of a good deal of its harsh reviews, and yet still host to a unique and worthwhile character.

Album artwork of '18' by Moby

18 Moby

Strung together with downtempo drum beats, silky basslines, warming pads, and soulful vocals, it’s a very consumable album with little to jolt listeners' senses.

Album artwork of 'Funeral' by Arcade Fire

Funeral Arcade Fire

Funeral is the beating heart of adolescence, a journey that voices the struggle of coming to terms with growing up. Beautifully intense and emotionally draining.

Album artwork of 'Jarvis' by Jarvis Cocker

Jarvis Jarvis Cocker

This is pop music for the mature listener; easy to consume, enjoyable enough, but flimsy and a little watered down compared to Cocker's work with Pulp.

Album artwork of 'The Eraser' by Thom Yorke

The Eraser Thom Yorke

The Eraser is a wonderful listen that comes with some baggage. If you’re able to handle its intensity, it’s actually a very beautiful record.

Album artwork of 'Discovery' by Daft Punk

Discovery Daft Punk

Discovery is a classic dance albums despite its age and the progression we’ve seen in the genre since. Listening remains a pleasure, flaws and all.

Album artwork of 'Daisies of the Galaxy' by Eels

Daisies of the Galaxy Eels

Daisies of the Galaxy comes to terms with the torment that constructed the deeply bleak and reflective Electro-Shock Blues, and injects a taste of happiness.

Album artwork of 'Based on a True Story' by Fat Freddy's Drop

Based on a True Story Fat Freddy's Drop

True to its reggae roots, Based on a True Story's mood is consistently mellow, providing an ideal vibe for those warm summer evenings.
