Top 5 Albums of the Year : Crippled Black Phoenix

Crippled Black Phoenix's debut album, "A Love Of Shared Disasters", is surely only weeks away from release. Had it been released in 2006 it would have been in many end of year lists, but good things come to those who wait. Instead, CBP ringleader Justin Greaves talks about the albums that inspired him this year

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5. Tenhi - "Maaaet" (Prophecy)

This i found in my dads record shop, one that i picked up on the strength of the cover, i gave it a play and the first track "Sparrow Day" is so bloody haunting, kind of like if Sigur Ros had come from the forrest and kept their integrity. From finland, they sing in their native language and take you on a journey whether you want to or not....spooky!





4. Band of Horses - "Everything all the Time" (Sub Pop)

"I got turned onto this from hearing the song "The Funeral", it pretty much blew me away when i first heared it, that doesn't happen to me very often, so i went and picked up the album. Didn't really know of this band before and don't know that much about them, but i reccommend giving this a turn".




3. The Black Heart Procession - "The Spell" (Touch and Go)

"One of my all time favorite bands, fell in love with them from day one, i was listening to 3-Mile Pilot for a while and the parts of that band that i really liked was taken further and made better when BHP came out with their first album, from then i was hooked. The Spell is yet another example of why i like them so much, it is criminal just how good the song "The Letter" is, it shouldn't be possible to make a song that perfect".



2. Bonnie "Prince" Billy - "The Letting Go" (Domino)

"Another guy who gets better with every release, this to me is the most accomplished work to date, i was looking forward to this album and i was not disappointed, the string work is amazing and it lifts up the already sublime song writing. "






1. Willard Grant Conspiracy - "Let it Roll" (Loose)

"I've been a long time fan of Robert Fisher and WGC and i love it when an artist i like keeps getting better, this album i think is his best so far, great dark Americana, it's miserable but strangely uplifting, amazing vocals, the gravel-tone to it is haunting as hell, and there's not one bad track on it."
