147. Enkä mä rakasta ketään - Pohjolan Ilmari
Tuomari Nurmio style folk rock with twisted, humouristic lyrics. Love those bombastic drums on some tracks.

At least the first disc was pretty good.

142. Marrow of the Spirit - Agalloch
"Black Lake Nidstång" is pretty awesome, I can already tell you this.

141. Bringing It All Back Home - Bob Dylan
Highlights on the first listening: "Subterranean Homesick Alien", "Gates of Eden" and "Bob Dylan's 115th Dream". The latest especially, I love Dylan's funny tracks.

140. The Man-Machine - Kraftwerk
Got the 2009 re-master (English).

Doesn't quite reach the synthetic beauty and groove of "Trans-Europe Express" but it's still a brilliant robot synth pop record with classics like "The Robots", "The Model" and "Neon Lights" on it.

139. Another Side of Bob Dylan - Bob Dylan
At first I thought this was boring but it either improved towards the end or I started warming up for it. Especially the last two songs, "Ballad in Plain D" and "It Ain't Me Babe", are some excellently written love songs.

138. Times They Are A-Changin - Bob Dylan
Nothing really stuck into my mind on the first listen. Except for the title track which I'd already discovered to be fantastic.

137. The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan - Bob Dylan
He could spare the harmonica a little but yeah. "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" is fantastic.

People who added this item 64  Average listal rating (32 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating
136. Bob Dylan - Bob Dylan
Got the "original mono recordings" box set which I'm going to listen to in chronological order.

This wasn't as bad or mediocre as I expected: simple acoustic folky and bluesy tunes greatly mixed.

People who added this item 5  Average listal rating (5 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
135. Spiral Scratch - Buzzcocks,Howard Devoto
A fast and energetic EP of 10 minutes, not as pop as their later stuff.

People who added this item 39  Average listal rating (26 ratings) 8.4  IMDB Rating
134. Untrue - Burial
Some thick atmosphere!

"Ghost Hardware" and "Archangel" are gorgeous.

133. Graduation - Kanye West
"Flashing Lights" is fantastic but mostly this is a bore. He really DID improve on this style on his latest album.

132. The Glow, Pt. II - The Microphones
Otherworldly, original, dreamy, fantastic, mindfuck.

131. Hölmö rakkaus ylpeä sydän - Scandinavian Music Group
Once again, the first couple of songs are great but then it gets boring.

130. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy - Kanye West
Some pretty damn fine songs here, seems great. Gotta give it more spins.

129. Poupée de cire, poupée de son - France Gall
Sweet songs, gotta get to digesting this.

People who added this item 88  Average listal rating (51 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating
128. Agaetis Byrjun - Sigur Ros
Somehow hadn't heard this until now. I've always felt that Sigur Rós is too "polished" for my taste and thus a bit boring and that impression stays still. Although I gotta say that "Staralfur" and "Olsen Olsen" are fantastic examples of modern songwriting.

I'm sure it'll grow on me.

127. Alligator - The National
My second The National acquisition. Not sure yet how much I like it; it sounds pleasant and all but not as good as High Violet, yet. "Secret Meeting" and "Karen" are cool songs.

Noise pop / shoegaze stuff from the early '90s.

123. Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... - Raekwon
Finally got a hold of this. Can't say anything about it yet except that Heaven and Hell fucking rules.

122. Deathconsciousness - Have A Nice Life
Something really impressive about a debut album such as this but I'm not totally feeling it. Yet.

121. The Age of Adz - Sufjan Stevens
wtf again

Weird album, most of it sounded like random bleeping and blooping but I feel there's something wonderful hidden in this monster. The last track is quite a ride.

119. Palatkaa Pariisiin! - Scandinavian Music Group
meh

EDIT: OK, certainly better on second listening. The A-side is fine but the B-side is kinda boring.

118. Doupeimmat Jumala seivaa - Ruudolf
Pretty good for a Finnish hip hop album. The title track is great.

117. Le Noise - Neil Young
Wow, this is pretty damn good from the 65-year-Young (heh). The overuse of delayed vocals irritates me a little but the distorted guitars sound crunchy in a great way.

116. Sweet Tea - Buddy Guy
"Done Got Old" is one hell of a first track. I expected the whole album to be of its awesomely minimalistic, melancholy style so I was a little disappointed. Pretty good stuff though.

People who added this item 3  Average listal rating (2 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating
115. Funky Kingston - Toots & the Maytals
Well, couldn't think of a more descriptive title for this. FUNKY FUNKY FUNKEEH

ONE MOH!

People who added this item 14  Average listal rating (8 ratings) 9.3  IMDB Rating
113. Clube da Esquina - Milton Nascimento,Lô Borges
Some of the most life-affirming pop music I've heard. "San Vicente" is becoming one of my favorite songs of all time.

A 1968 record of Cream-esque psychedelic rock from San Francisco.

107. Black Earth - Bohren & Der Club Of Gore
Another record I used as a soundtrack for Hitman: Blood Money.

Perfect atmosphere for the game, don't know how much I can enjoy it on its own.

106. Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous - Big L
Big L was mad with the rhymes and rhythmically great too.

I flows, so one of my shows, wouldn't be clever to miss
I'm leavin competitors pissed
To tell you the truth, it gets no better than this


Sheeeeeeeiiit...

105. Shallow Grave - Tallest Man on Earth
Fantastic folk album by a promising Swedish singer/songwriter, Kristian Matsson.

"I Won't Be Found" is one of the best examples of great folk songwriting.

104. Small Change - Tom Waits
Not a big fan of his '70s stuff but this seems a cool album. It has better (and funner) songs than Closing Time and some entertaining tales to the lyrics.

Maybe I should drink more in order to appreciate this bar blues period more.

103. Anna Puu - Anna Puu
Her first album. Has some pretty good songs like the opening three: the pretty "Linnuton puu", the radio hit "C'est la vie" and Duffy-esque "Melankolian riemut".

People who added this item 46  Average listal rating (25 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating
102. Singles Going Steady - Buzzcocks
"Ever Fallen in Love" is one of those songs that one can't help stupidly dancing to. That and "Orgasm Addict" made me buy this record.

Something charming about this lo-finess.
