My Top 10: Lostprophets

So todays feature is the first of its kind. My top 10 will be another weekly feature where I will introduce a band and then launch into my ten favourite songs of theirs. Simple concept really.

Lostprophets were the first band I fell in love with as a teenager, I remember buying their first album ‘thefakesoundofprogress’ on holiday in Guernsey and I couldn’t stop listening to it. It remains one of my favourite albums to date. From then on their albums have changed in style from an alternative nu-metal sound to what can only be described as alternative rock. No matter what people say I still love the music they make, even if the direction they have taken may have disillusioned many of their fans. I will forever be a fan. So without further ado, here is my top 10 songs:

1. Shinobi Vs Dragon Ninja

2. The Fake Sound Of Progress

3. Kobrakai

4. Last Train Home

5. Burn Burn

6. We Are Godzilla, You Are Japan

7. A Town Called Hypocrisy

8. 4:AM Forever

9. Ac Ricochet

10. Where We Belong

Monday 19th: The Moody Blues – Seventh Sojourn

Released in 1972, to me, this album sums up everything that was great about ‘The Moody Blues’, they penned some fantastic music and I cannot say there is a track on this album I dislike. Every track is individual and well crafted, (not like some modern bands albums) and leaves the listener with a sense of fulfilment at having taken the time to listen to this masterpiece.

It seems to me that time has forgotten ‘The Moody Blues’ and especially this album. All to frequently when I people talk to me about older rock and blues bands in great detail, I mention the name to them and get a resounding ‘who?’. This is also evident on English radio stations who only seem to have heard of the song ‘Nights in White Satin’ which to be honest, is a good song, just far to over played and over hyped when compared to over songs.

Take your time to listen ‘Seventh Sojourn’ and I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Welcome

Hi there! My name is Jack and I’m an avid music fan. Anything from 70s progressive rock to modern day dubstep and death metal.

Recently I started a feature on Facebook to introduce my friends to my¬†eclectic music taste, and so far it’s been doing ok. But now I want to delve deeper into what I’ve been saying and explore albums and artists much more.

So that’s why I’m here! Keep a watch out for my first post coming soon.

Jack
