Following on from a short discussion prior to Foals’ gig at the Manchester Arena I thought I would try to engage my small panel of readers.
We discussed that music had, pretty much, been dire since the turn of the century and the query was raised “If you could save one album only released this century from your burning house(sorry about that) what would it be?’ Feel free to explain your selection if you so desire. If you do not have a selection then opinions on why that is are also, very much, welcome.
Rules: Just one really. Initial releases only, no reissues or collectors editions etc.
My selection would be: The National – Trouble Will Find Me from 2013. Simply because it’s a beautiful record from start to finish, not particularly upbeat but if you’re a fan of the genre then it’s a must have album. If you’re not familiar with it check it out on Spotify below.
Genre: Indie rock, Post-punk revival
Release date: May 17, 2013
