Best Albums I've Heard (and can't put down!) This Year

A Listmania! list by Simon The Pie-Man
 
The Alternative To Love
1.  The Alternative To Love by Brendan Benson
The list author says:
  "Not Jack White's 2nd in command, but a versatile and talented solo artist in his own right. 3rd outing for BB; and it's his best - full of glorious pop and rock with arrangements to die for."
£4.22   Used & New from: £0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

All Maps Welcome
2.  All Maps Welcome by Tom McRae
The list author says:
  "Tom's haunting style has never been more outstanding. Mesmerising stuff; why people buy Damien Rice records when this is far more rewarding is beyond me."
£8.99   Used & New from: £0.16
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

The Dark Third
3.  The Dark Third by Pure Reason Revolution
The list author says:
  "The best thing to happen the British prog rock in years. PRR may write long songs with daft lyrics, but they do it with a contempary twist that brings this band bang up to date."
Used & New from: £2.99
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

Decreasing Circles
4.  Decreasing Circles by Geist
The list author says:
  "A remarkable album fusing a myriad of styles with keenly observed lyrics, making this an astounding collection of songs you'll come back to again and again. Largely undiscovered; change this now!"
Used & New from: £0.50
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Broken Boy Soldiers
5.  Broken Boy Soldiers by The Raconteurs
The list author says:
  "Heavily scented in patchouli oil with a red scarf draped over the lamp, this album rocks 70's stylee. Pop/rock anthems, and pysched-out, acid-fried experiments; this is a 34-minute gem."
£4.39   Used & New from: £0.75
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (50 customer reviews)

American V: A Hundred Highways
6.  American V: A Hundred Highways by Johnny Cash
The list author says:
  "He's done it again. JC's final word to us, this is a belter of an album. It's hard to listen to this album and not be moved. His voice veers from a powerful boom to a fragile lament. Essential."
£10.63   Used & New from: £0.54
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (70 customer reviews)
