A few album ratings – Part 2

Since the Rate Your Music feed doesn’t work, here is my second installment of a few albums I’ve enjoyed lately. If it’s rated a 7, that’s mainly because there are four or five tracks on the album that aren’t as good as the rest of the album – but I listen to the good tracks frequently.

******* Robyn – Robyn

********* Derik LaRon – Crash Radio 1

********* Loscil – Endless Falls

******** Pretty Lights – Filling Up The City Skies

******** Britney Spears – Femme Fatale

******* Manchester Orchestra – Simple Math

******* Maroon 5 – Hands All Over

********* Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi – Rome

********* Dada – Live: Official Bootleg, Vol. 1

******** Two Door Cinema Club – Tourist History

********* Tyler James – It Took The Fire (w/ review)

******** Alexandre Desplat – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

******** Various Artists – Ghostly Swim

********* Daft Punk – Tron: Legacy

1 Derik is not on Rate Your Music (yet), but you can follow him and his music on Twitter.

    Discovered Loscil earlier in the year, during winter when such music is perfect for extended listening. I’m one album short of having the full body of work, and can highly recommend “Submers” and “Coast/Range/Arc”

    Also have the Pretty Lights release after seeing them at Bonnaroo in 2009. And the superb Daft Punk “Tron:Legacy” soundtrack is a wonderful blend of ambient and near-orchestral music that I’ve not heard anyone else do quite as well.

    I think Lynn has the Maroon 5 release, but I don’t think I’ve given it a close listen yet.

    Nice list, thanks!

    • I should have added Liquid Mind to the list. I listen to the ambient stuff on the bus when I want to take a nap. I’ve been wanting to get more Loscil, but his albums are expensive!
