George's Musical Alphabet (minus x)

Mr. George Purves "Agent Cooper"
 
Funeral
Funeral
"A lot of people don't rate AF, but I think Funeral is the most exciting, warm, beautiful album of recent years. Check out the members' other bands as well: Bell Orchestre and Final Fantasy."
The Silent Circus
The Silent Circus
"Infinitely interesting metal epic - long, complicated, brutal songs interspersed where needed with delicious and suprisingly dainty melodies."
As The Roots Undo
As The Roots Undo
"Could this be the best heavy rock album ever? Subtly conceptual, breathtakingly intense, this is a sprawling journey into the unknown that takes you deeper each time you listen. Great artwork as well."
Read Music/Speak Spanish
Read Music/Speak Spanish
"Connor Oberst and Denver Dalley's one-off (so far) punk rock collaboration is an album everyone should own regardless of their views of Bright Eyes and Statistics (although they're great too!)"
Earth 2
Earth 2
"One low note for 70 minutes - and it's fantastic! Another album you get sucked deeper into each time you put it on. Definitely for headphones, this one."
Suspended Animation
Suspended Animation
"Mike Patton is a genius, and this breathtaking collection of madcap, Stockhausen-inspired ditties pays tribute to the fact. Mr Nara's wonderful artwork is just the icing on the cake."
Yanqui U.X.O.
Yanqui U.X.O.
"Some post-rock tends to drag on a bit. Not Godspeed. I've tried and I've tried, but this is one instrumental record I can't listen to while reading. Flawless from start to finish."
Ideas Above Our Station
Ideas Above Our Station
"What happened to Hundred Reasons, eh? Why don't they still sound as good as this? It's a damn shame, because every song on here, without exception, is expertly written and performed."
Lions Write History
Lions Write History
"For some reason Amazon don't sell Learning to Accept Silence, which is this record's slightly superior predecessor, but still this is strong stuff. Age of Oceans gets me every time."
The Repercussions Of A Badly Planned Suicide
The Repercussions Of A Badly Planned Suicide
"Whatever you do, don't get their new album, get this instead. Just listen to the end of Seven Days... where Stuart from Jacob's Stories comes in and if that doesn't convince you, then nothing will."
Hey Zeus
Hey Zeus
"Excellent debut - Fugazi done the English way. Again every song's a winner here."
Plague Soundscapes
Plague Soundscapes
"This is a good introduction to the weird world of The Locust. As my friend would say, 'By the time you finish reading the track name the song will be over'. A mini masterpiece."
The Glow Vol.2
The Glow Vol.2
"I can't really put into words how good this record is. All I can do is encourage you to buy it and find out for yourself. You won't regret it."
In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
"I'm not going to beat around the bush, this is the best album ever made."
Dusk at Cubist Castle
Dusk at Cubist Castle
"Amazon are lying - this actually has 27 tracks, it's a huge album. Good friends of NMH, this is 60s psychadelia like you've never heard it before. Can there be such a thing as pop-prog? Apparently so!"
Dissertation Honey
Dissertation Honey
"The Plot bring together a chaotic blend of jazz and punk that's both refreshing and really fun. Not easy to find, this one, but well worth it when you do."
Songs For The Deaf
Songs For The Deaf
"Probably the best QOTSA album, although all of them are brilliant. I only just got around to finally getting myself a copy, and it annoys me to think of all the years I wasted not listening to it."
The Shape Of Punk To Come
The Shape Of Punk To Come
"I thought of putting OK Computer here, or maybe United By Fate, but really nothing beats the mighty Refused. Their DVD just came out and it's a great companion to this classic cd. Why not get both?"
A Retrospective
A Retrospective
"I used to be obssessed with this record. It's so raw and full of energy, and it has this special sound to it that I haven't heard before or since. Truly beautiful music."
Short Strut to the Brassy Front
Short Strut to the Brassy Front
"Another album with a really unique sound - it's part rock, part jazz and part something else that only thisGIRL can do. Buying it guarantees that your day will become exactly 7 times brighter."
Marionette And The Music Box
Marionette And The Music Box
"Gorgeous acoustic-based instrumental music that tells the story of a puppet who gets lost in a dark forest while on the search for a mysterious music box. Magical and haunting."
Sisters of the Red Death
Sisters of the Red Death
"VR's final album is astonishing: Well-produced pop-rock anthems, but with deeply disturbing lyrics that are delivered so passionately that you're left not quite knowing what hit you. Breathtaking."
Pinkerton
Pinkerton
"An album that'll stay with you through thick and thin. Whenever you start to lose faith in modern music, just go back to Pinkerton and suddenly you'll remember what it's all about."
Ignoto
Ignoto
"What a debut. Intense, complex yet wonderfully accessible. While you sit back and watch them take over the world make sure you don't forgot where you were when you first heard Ignoto."
Odessey & Oracle
Odessey & Oracle
"...and a real classic to end on. Nothing beats getting up early on a fresh spring morning and stepping out into the sunshine with this in your cd player. Try it some time. Goodbye!"
