Top 10: Dec 3-10, 2006

Because I'm bored and I don't want to study, I thought I'd do a little analysis of my top 10 and maybe start doing it every week. Who knows. Anyway...

1. The Moody Blues

This is the first time the Moodies have ever been my top artist! In my opinion, one of the most underrated bands of all time. I went through a phase where I listened to basically nothing but them in my Sophomore year of high school, and then took a really long break. Well, I've recently been listening to them a ton and they're really awesome. I still think that their best album is To Our Children's Children's Children. I love the three song stretch of Gypsy, Eternity Road and The Candle of Life.
Track of the Week: Dawn: Dawn Is A Feeling

2. Pink Floyd

Pretty self-explanatory. They're catching up to The Beatles! Anyway, I listened to Is There Anybody Out There? (The Wall Live) and most of a bootleg I downloaded with the early versions of Dogs and Sheep on it. That bootleg has an amazing setlist: Raving and Drooling, You Gotta Be Crazy, Shine on You Crazy Diamond, all of Dark Side of the Moon, and Echoes. I wish I could have gone to that concert.
Track of the Week: Summer '68

3. Porcupine Tree

I've loved In Absentia and Deadwing ever since I first heard them, but after listening to it twice this week, I think I might have to put Lightbulb Sun on the same level as those two. There are a lot of really spectacular songs on that album: shesmovedon, Lightbulb Sun, Last Chance to Evacuate Planet Earth Before It is Recycled, The Rest Will Flow, Four Chords That Made a Million... great album
Track of the Week: Lightbulb Sun

4. Genesis

Quickly becoming one of my favorite prog bands. I am completely in love with the album Selling England by the Pound. Every song on it is spectacular. I also gave Foxtrot a listen this week; great album, though I don't put it on the same level as SEbtP. Another band that I wish I could have seen live when they were in their prime.
Track of the Week: Dancing With the Moonlit Knight

5. The Mars Volta

Another great artist... I did a few all-nighters this week, and during one, I listened to their entire Discography. I still prefer De-Loused in the Comatorium and Amputechture to Frances the Mute, but my opinion of the latter continues to improve. The only problem is that it feels like I often just tune it out, whereas I've never really done that with De-Loused or Amputechture. Still, they are all great albums.
Track of the Week: Eria Tarka

6. Oasis

Just getting into these guys... for some reason I was completely unaware of all 90s music up until last year. I don't know why. Anyway, this was another artist I listened to during fevered all-nighters. I listened to (What's the Story) Morning Glory, Be Here Now and Definitely Maybe early in the morning as I was putting the finishing touches on an English paper. They're all good albums, though I prefer (WtS)MG to the other two.
Track of the Week: Don't Look Back in Anger

7. Bob Dylan

Mostly just listened to a bunch of randomly selected songs, the only full album being Modern Times, which I really love more and more every time I listen to it. I think it's probably my second favorite album of the year, behind Black Holes and Revelations. When the Deal Goes Down, Workingman's Blues #2, Nettie Moore and Ain't Talkin' are all spectacular songs.
Track of the Week: Nettie Moore

8. Modest Mouse

Not totally in love with these guys yet, but I do really like their quirky sound. This was yet another late-night listen, as I played The Lonesome Crowded West and Good News for People who Love Bad News while writing a paper about the Enlightenment. Good News is the album I'm most familiar with so far, but I think I'm going to have to give the former a few more listens!
Track of the Week: Ocean Breathes Salty

9. Opeth

Yep, I listened to them in the early morning while finishing a paper! I believe I listened to Damnation and Ghost Reveries, probably their two most reviled albums, but I love both of them. The softness of Damnation was actually pretty nice when I was fuckin' exhausted after being up all night.
Track of the Week: To Rid the Disease

10. Queen

I've never been a huge fan of Queen. I like them, but I've never understood the worship. Well, I decided to give them more of a chance and got Sheer Heart Attack and Queen II and gave them both a listen. They were actually quite good. A lot of the non-Greatest Hits Queen songs are really awesome.
Track of the Week: The March of the Black Queen
