Amazon.co.uk Review
Who'd have thought that out of the messy sludge that nu-metal trawled out of the swamp with it, a glistening gem such as Hundred Reason's hotly-tipped debut Ideas Above Our Station could appear from Surrey and blow everything else out of the murky waters? Ideas Above Our Station is a genuinely solid rock album of immediate quality. Heavy metal? This is precious metal--a true diamond in the dirt: rock without pretension, but fuelled by canisters of sheer emotion and raw energy. It's exciting, it's immediate and it will start a fire in your belly. There are shades of early Pearl Jam here, particularly in the first single "If I Could", but such comparisons on their own are unfair--witness the gloriously deranged guitar of "Shine" or the restrained brutality of live favourite "Silver".

:cool:

Last one I got was good, had a HR track a Hell is for heroes track and an Errortype 1.1 track. And it came with a big photo.

You're making a lot of input in this thread Mike ;)

I'll check them out...

My 'hmmmm' is just at someone declaring an album of the year without having heard it :p

Oh yeah, I was totally aware of that when I posted it. :D

I have no idea what good albums are coming out this year. I'm looking forward to the Primal Scream one, but other than that... Best so far: Either "Weapons and Ammunition" by Kent or "MTV Unplugged No. 2.0" by Lauryn Hill. Neither which would have made the top ten last year.

The next album of the year after this one will be the new Queens of the Stone Age album with Dave Grohl drumming and contributions from Mark Lanegan.

Are the Prodigy getting round to their new album this year? I would love a return to either the mental rave of Experience or the Narcotic Suite from Music For The Jilted Generation.

I imagine they'll change styles again. It's supposed to be out this year, they've been playing tracks from it on their Australian and US festival dates.

As I've only bought one album released this year, I can't really make a fair assessment of what the best album this year is :D

No cult in history, however, can claim to be quite as peculiar as emo. Born in the US in the late 1980s, emo sounds less like a youth movement than something from an episode of Brass Eye.

What the hell has Emo got to do with it? I like the way that idiot of a reviewer describes what emo is, says that Hundred Reasons are nothing like that then says that they are an emo band. Twat head.

I don't think I've ever actually heard a band that was really 'emo'.
