Top 3 Tracks:
3. 50 Cent - Hate It Or Love It (Remix) (feat G-Unit)
Tucked away at the back of the bloated Massacre album, was this bonus track which turned out to be the rap highlight of the year. Even if you can't stand Fiddy and his brainless thugs, you'll still like this one. Except for Dylan, he gave it a 3.
2. LCD Soundsystem/Franz & Shape - Daft Punk Is Playing At My House/Countach (Remix)
Mash-ups are so 2003, but this was the indie-punk/dancefloor stormer I'd been praying and waiting for.
1. Hard-Fi - Tied Up Too Tight
Forget Bloc Party, Editors, Franz and all the other assorted 1981 tribute bands. Hard-Fi were the british sensation of 2005. This is the strongest track from the album, and my track of the year.Honourable Mentions:
Top 3 Albums:
- Girls Aloud - Biology
- The Bravery - Honest Mistake
- Daft Punk - Robot Rock (look, i got the joke, ok)
1. Sigur Ros - Takk
2. Girls Aloud - Chemistry
Late bolter of the year. Innovative pop-music, surprisingly sophisticated. I even like the bonus Christmas CD. I'd hit Cheryl.
3. Hard-Fi - Stars of CCTV
Flounders a bit in the middle, but the opening 5 and closing 3 tracks are fantastic.Gheyest song which I secretly liked:
The Track Most Likely To Turn Me Into A Psychopathic Murderer Next Time I Hear It:
- Madonna - Hung Up (yea, i'm aware it samples abba)
- James Cunt - You're Beautiful
