Re: The Top Albums of the 00s (Half Way)
So you named some of my favs anyway: 2) Bowie - Heathen 3) Nick Cave - Abbatoir Blues/Orpheus 4) Cale - Hobo Sapiens 5) Bowie - Reality 6) NIN - With Teeth 10) Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand
but if EPs count as well then you have to add 1) Cale - 5 Tracks 5 absolutely brilliant songs - no weak moment. I could not name a single song from the above albums which comes close to any of the tracks on this EP. The only song which can be counted in the same class is The Disco King, but still with quite a gap in between. My favorite track is "E is missing". Thanks John for reminding the world that Ezra Pound is - apart from some rather doubtful deeds - a poetic genius. And I woudn't be surprised if Cale's next one "blackAcetate" (to be released in Oct) has good chance is getting into the list as well.
Personally, I also rate - 7) Maximo Park: A Certain Trigger - 8) Van der Graaf Generator: Present - 9) Moby: Hotel quite high. But I think they're only for people who like 70s and early 80s stuff. Maximo Park is the better Franz Ferdinand.
