This made me grin.
Love to all. I am not criticizing anyone, just needed to state my position.
Edit: Added imeem playlist so you don't have to click around to hear these.Music has greatly enriched my year! Last.fm links for the first two - had to find alternate sources for the rest.
1. NIN - Echoplex
NIN is obviously my obsession. This track is from The Slip, if you've been sleeping.
2. TV on the Radio - Lover's Day
Have performed live with Peter Murphy and Trent Reznor (for example, the TVotR song Dreams). Dear Science is the first album of theirs that I picked up - love it.
3. Tricky - Past Mistake (hear the album)
Loved for years, critic's darling. The new album, Knowle West Boy, is more accessible than his earlier work.
4. ohGr - Smogharp (YouTube rip)
My favorite track off Devils in My Details.
5. Gina Young - The Boy on the Bus (scroll down to this song on the left and click play)
Political song from the wonderful Gina Young, on 3am Voice. Her first two albums are also excellent.
