I’m not so long on (the) board and I’m reading and learning a lot.
I would like to have the opinion of freakscene members about this question. What is the best (2001)album you’ve bought this year?
I’m going (for sentimental reasons) for:
The Strokes..Is this it [img]images/smiles/icon_razz.gif[/img]November 6, 2001 at 5:47 pm #67120
Gore Slut – Girl + TurtlesNovember 6, 2001 at 6:18 pm #67121
Red House Painters-Old RamonNovember 6, 2001 at 9:39 pm #67122
Tomahawk – Tomahawk….T’was released on Halloween ’01November 7, 2001 at 12:43 pm #67123

Some others from me:
Low-Things We Lost In The Fire
Kristin Hersh-Sunny Border Blue
Tindersticks-Can Our Love
Birddog-A Sweet And Bitter Fancy
Sparklehorse-It`s A Wonderful Life
Gillian Welch-Time(The Revelator)
Mercury Rev-All Is Dream
Hope Sandoval And The Warm Inventions-Bavarian Fruit Bread
This might change a little by the end of the year.November 8, 2001 at 2:40 am #67125
Haven’t made up my mind yet, but some strong contenders are:
Ryan Adams – Gold
Mercury Rev – All is dream
Steve Wynn – Here come the miracles
The White Stripes – White bloodcells
Built to Spill – Ancient melodies of the Future
and some strong outsiders:
Sanford Arms – Too loud for the snowman
Pinback – Blue Screen Life
Preston School of Industry – All this sounds gas
Somewhere in December you will read my top 10 of 2001 somewhere on this board!
ps. compilation of the year: EBC!!!November 8, 2001 at 2:57 am #67126
Grammy Contenders (so far):
Radiohead – Amnesiac
Tool – Lateralus
REM – Reveal
I think REM’ll win because Dylan did 3 years ago and lord knows they’ll never give it to Radiohead.November 8, 2001 at 10:45 am #67127
Spiritulized’s new one has been the best I’ve heard so far.November 8, 2001 at 4:19 pm #67128
I’m going to have to go with Fugazi "The Argument" for my favorite album of the year. Its only been out for a few weeks, but it’s incredible. Amnesiac is pretty up there too.November 8, 2001 at 4:36 pm #67129
Aphex Twin – Drukqs ; go on, you know u wanna buy it. goddammit, why can no-one else see the genius of it all…
im goin to see him tomorrow, how lucky am i? along with Plaid, Mira Calix, Leila, Anti-Pop Consortium amongs a few others.
you’re all so jealous.
i can tell.November 8, 2001 at 5:27 pm #67130
Sappy-the Anti Pop Consortium is fun,heard them on the radio before.
Overexposed-have`nt heard the new Fugazi yet but heard that it`s really good;I thought End Hits was good even though some critics did`nt like it.November 8, 2001 at 6:53 pm #67131
Then again, Nebula’s new album is very GREAT…
Does anyone else own it here?November 9, 2001 at 3:24 am #67132
i don’t have the album, but I saw them live last year, they opened for Motorhead, and they rocked my sweet ass almost as hard as Lemmey did.November 9, 2001 at 3:26 am #67133

Yeah, I saw them when they opened for Mudhoney on August 30th, they rocked VERY hard…
Check out their new album ‘Charged’…I ordered it straight from subpop on vinyl for like $7.00 shipped.
