Brit Awards – the Albums

Well as was last night, now seems a good oppotunity to look at some of those new albums I got for Christmas and my Birthday.

British Album

  • Coldplay X & Y
  • Gorillaz Demon Days
  • James Blunt Back To Bedlam
  • Kaiser Chiefs Employment
  • Kate Bush Aerial

, , and were on my list of new albums.

I would have chosen between Kate Bush and Coldplay, so the fact that Coldplay won is not a problem.

Coldplay - X & YColdplay – X&Y, I didn’t think I was going to like X&Y, because I didn’t like the Single ‘Fix you’. Victoria was going to buy the album for me, so I thought; what the heck, and bought it. I really really like it! It’s worthy of all the praise handed to it.

Kate Bush - AerialKate Bush –  Aerial, is also fantastic. Typical oddness beautifully done. I read the lyrics before listening, and thought it was going to be crap. How can you have a song about ‘PI’ where the number is recited throughout it? Or singing about washing machines ‘Mrs Bartolozzi’? But the album is Kate Bush at her best, just wonderfully done. There are two discs for the album. The first seems a more random arrangement of songs, whereas the second seems to be put together with some relationship. That said ‘A Coral Room’ on CD1 is just gorgeous.

Kaiser Chiefs - EmploymentKaiser Chiefs – Employment, on the other hand is pants. It does have some great songs on it, ie: all the ones that have been released as singles so far. ‘Everyday I Love You Less and Less’, ‘I Predict  A Riot’, ‘Oh My God’, and ‘Na Na Na Na Naa’… but that’s it, all the rest are dull dull dull…

BRITISH FEMALE SOLO

  • Charlotte Church
  • Kate Bush
  • Katie Melua
  • KT Tunstall
  • Natasha Bedingfield
  • KT Tunstall - Eye to the Telescope took this one, which from the nominees I won’t argue with.

    KT Tunstall – Eye to the Telescope. Love this. Fantastic album. Not a bad track on it. She at times reminds me of other artists, but hell there is no crime in that. Well put together album.

    Jack Johnson - In Between Dreams took International break Through Artist.

    Jack Johnson –  In Between Dreams, loved this as well. Again, not a bad track on it. Reminds me a little of , but that is no bad thing.

    Madonna - Confessions on a dance floor picked up International Femal Solo Artist.

    Madonna – Confessions on a Dance Floor, I thought I was going to hate this one. When it was first released I listened to some of the tracks on MSN Music and didn’t take to it at all. So I was going to give it a miss, but Victoria gave it to me. I love it! There is only one dodgy track on it; ‘Push’, which I think is terrible and therefore so out of place.
