2013 Music Masterpieces Month

As ever, December for me is Music Masterpieces Month. For a full explanation of what that is click here but in summary throughout December every year I listen to an entire album per day.

The rules for selection are simple, 31 great records which I think are brilliant and worth a listen start to finish. No artist can have more than 1 entry and there can be no compilations of course as these are not always intended for a complete listen. 

The 2009 list was: Slipknot – Slipknot, Foo Fighters – The colour and the shape, The Bronx – The Bronx, At the drive-in – Relationship of Command, The Darkness – Permission to land, Jamie T – Sticks and stones, Hell is for heroes – Transmit disrupt, Levellers – Levelling the land, Frank Turner – Love ire and song, A – vs Monkey kong, Pearl Jam – Ten, Nirvana – Nevermind, Funeral for a friend – Casually dressed and deep in conversation, ….And you will know us by the trail of dead – Source tags and codes, Sparta – 3’s, Strung out – Twisted by design, Oasis – Whats the story morning glory, The Offspring – Americana, The Music – Strength in numbers, Gaslight anthem – 59 sound, Bloc Party – Intimacy, The cooper temple clause – See this through and leave, Kasabian – Kasabian, Longcut – A call and a response, Million dead – Harmony no harmony, Seafood – When do we start fighting, Arctic Monkeys – Whatever you say I am that is what I am not, Biffy Clyro – Puzzle, Roddy Woomble – My secret is my silence, Mars Volta – De-loused in the comatorium, Interpol – Turn on the bright lights.

In 2010 the list was: At the drive in – Relationship of Command, Bloc Party – Intimacy, Enter Shikari – Common Dreads, Foo Fighters – The colour and the shape, Jamie T – Kings and queens, Levellers – Levelling the land, Mars Volta – Deloused in the comatorium, System of a down – Toxicity, The streets – Original Pirate Material, Nirvana – Nevermind, Million dead – Harmony no harmony, Hell is for heroes – Neon handshake, Funeral for a friend – Casually dressed and deep in conversation, Frank turner – Sleep is for the weak, Cooper temple clause – See this through and leave, Biffy clyro – Infinity land, Bronx – Bronx, Jose Gonzales – Veneer, Kasabian – Kasabian, Slipknot – Slipknot, A – Hifi serious, Arctic Monkeys – Whatever….., The offspring – Ixnay on the Hombre, Gaslight anthem – 59 sound, Yourcodenameis:milo – Ignoto, Longcut – A call and a response, Interpol – Turn on the bright lights, Gallows – Orchestra of Wolves, The music – the music, The Darkness – Permission to land, Rival schools – United by fate

Sadly the 2011 list is in my old teachers planner in a cupboard in England and I skipped 2012 for reasons unknown

But for 2013: Foo Fighters – The colour and the shape, At the drive in – Relationship of Command, Frank turner – Sleep is for the weak, Frightened Rabbit – Pedestrian Verse, Levellers – Levelling the Land, Million dead – Harmony no harmony, Nirvana – Nevermind, Arctic Monkeys – Whatever….., Cooper temple clause – See this through and leave, Hell is for heroes – Neon handshake, Jose Gonzales – Veneer,  Longcut – A call and a response, Slipknot – Slipknot, A – Hifi serious, Bloc Party – Silent Alarm,  Courteneers – Falcon, The Darkness – Permission to land, The Wombats – This Modern Glitch, Yourcodenameis:milo – Ignoto, The streets – Original Pirate Material, The Music – The Music, My Vitriol – Finelines, The Bronx – The Bronx 1, Jake Bugg – Jake Bugg, Jamie T – Kings and Queens, Hope of the States – The Lost Riots, Gaslight Anthem – 59 Sound, Funeral for a Friend – Casually dressed and deep in Conversation, Enter Shikari – Common Dreads, Maccabees – Colour it in, Oasis – Whats the story morning glory
