C.H.E. sa...

Først og fremst: Fin liste! :) Er enig i det meste, selv om så å si alle albumene er av den svært hypede sorten.

Men: Heartbeats - The Knife er da vitterlig fra 2004(!), så det blir kanskje litt gammelt? Fantastisk sang, men skulle du hatt noe mer oppdatert kunne kanskje låta "We share our mothers' health" fra Silent Shout (2006) vært bedre?

Og en ting til: Hvor er Susanne Sundførs selvtitulerte plate? Ikke hørt, eller bare glemt?

Og hvor er den nye, vakre plata til Ulver?

Fortsett med å høre på lekker musikk, og så håper jeg vi sees ute i jula! :)

Christer.

Aleksander sa...

Hyped er bra, men på langt nær alt på lista er hyped, and If so, fortjener de å bli hyped mer:p

hehe, ja heartbeats er gammel, men den dukket opp og fikk sneket seg inn:p men jeg får gjør en liten modifikasjon og gi plass til Yadnus av !!! i stedet da:p

Det er vel strengt tatt ikke noe Norsk i det hele tatt på den lista, og Susanne Sundfør har jeg rett og slett ikke fått tid til, kanskje jeg bør sjekke henne ut? Ulver visste jeg ikke engang hadde ny plate:p

Vi får ta en pils i Jula, det hadde vært veldig bra:) Kos og klem.

C.H.E. sa...

Joda, Ulver-plata er fin den; mørk og stemningsfull, perfekt til disse overbelyste førjulstider. :)

Forresten: Har du hørt Ryan Adams sin coverversjon av Wonderwall? Fantastisk fin! Du finner den sikkert ved et søk på Hype Machine e.l. - den bør høres!

Sees i Tønsberg! Koz og klemz.

Birger sa...

Wow, skal si du har gått grundig til verks med oppsummeringen for 2007! Definitivt de udødelige klassikerene "Umbrella" og "Relax" jeg husker best her dog. ;)

Jørgen sa...

ella ella å å e å! Knall:) Du har lagt alt for mye arbeid i this shit. Men det får gå. Jeg orket ikke lese, satser på at den er godkjent, jeg er uansett ikke ajour på fasiten.
