Best Music Albums - Year By
1. Placebo: Without You I'm
Suede started the uni-sex rock, Placebo takes it even furhter. An album with Europe
written all over it and sex in its many forms.
2. David Gray: White Ladder
would take a couple of years to become the most successful combination of
singer-songwriter and pop in years. It has an impressive freshness and simplicity - and of
course fucking brilliant songs!
3. Pet Shop Boys: Nightlife
||A very strong
millenium album from the best pop duo around. Pet Shop Boys have re-invented themselves
and sound as fresh as ever.
About Pet Shop Boys
4. Suede: Head Music
fine album from Suede. However, it's still a step back compared to what they've done
5. Everything But The Girl:
started with the remix of "Missing" continues with a great dance album from one
of the masters in the field. Dance and great atmosphere in a delicious cocktail.
6. Fiona Apple: When The Pawn
||Second album from Fiona
Apple is just as strong as the debut. For those who want pop music with personality and a
twist of darkness...
About Fiona Apple
7. Robbie Williams: I've
Been Expecting You
||One of the
best entertainers around these days. Here's one who hasn't forgotten what pop music is all
about. Pure fun while distancing everybody else at the same time...
8. Kent: Hagnesta Hill
||Swedish band Kent are
mastering the British rock even better than many of the British bands. And they possess an
extra quality lacking with many of the Brits: good songs!
9. Live: The Distance To Here
||Even though the album is
not as strong as the two previous Live releases, it's still yet another proof of Live's
remarkable rock skills.
10. Madder Rose: Hello June Fool
||Best album so far from
New York based Madder Rose. A more mature sound that really suits the band - sort of
10,000 Maniacs with an edge.
