I thought it'd be fun to list out just 10 of my favourite albums, this isn't a difinitive list, nor is it even my top 10. However, these were the top 10 that came to mind when I thought about my favourite albums. If you enjoy this list let me know and I'll do another favourite album list!

Oasis - Definitely Maybe

Let's Talk, Let's Talk About, Music, Oasis, Kanye West, Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys, Drake, Jay Z, David Bowie, Stone Roses, U2, Catfish and The Bottlemen, the balcony, joshua tree, the stone roses, hunky dory, black album,take care, wahtever people say i am, currents, definitely maybe, my beautiful dark twisted fantasy, favourite album, best album, kmmreviews, album, music

This album defined britpop and Oasis' whole career, they never topped this album. Many might argue that Morning Glory is better, but they need not look any further than its predecessor which contained songs like Live Forever, Married With Children, Supersonic. Absolute, undeniable classic.

Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

Let's Talk, Let's Talk About, Music, Oasis, Kanye West, Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys, Drake, Jay Z, David Bowie, Stone Roses, U2, Catfish and The Bottlemen, the balcony, joshua tree, the stone roses, hunky dory, black album,take care, wahtever people say i am, currents, definitely maybe, my beautiful dark twisted fantasy, favourite album, best album, kmmreviews, album, music

This is one of the most incredible works by any artist ever. The production value of this album is immense, and it flows perfectly. Despite being only 7 years old it has shaped rap music and is widely regarded as one of the greatest albums of all time already. The implementation of guest features was also iridescently fantastic, Dark Fantasy, Gorgeous, Blame Game. There isn't a single bad song on this album.

Tame Impala - Currents

Let's Talk, Let's Talk About, Music, Oasis, Kanye West, Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys, Drake, Jay Z, David Bowie, Stone Roses, U2, Catfish and The Bottlemen, the balcony, joshua tree, the stone roses, hunky dory, black album,take care, wahtever people say i am, currents, definitely maybe, my beautiful dark twisted fantasy, favourite album, best album, kmmreviews, album, music

This album isn't very old at all, yet it holds such a tight grasp on me. And I only heard it for the first time just over a year ago. Kevin Parker's production and twisted, psychadelic vocals leave a prominent tone. Not to mention, the album flows so fluidly that it helps to make it an easy listening. I'd definitely recommend picking this up on vinyl.

Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not

Let's Talk, Let's Talk About, Music, Oasis, Kanye West, Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys, Drake, Jay Z, David Bowie, Stone Roses, U2, Catfish and The Bottlemen, the balcony, joshua tree, the stone roses, hunky dory, black album,take care, wahtever people say i am, currents, definitely maybe, my beautiful dark twisted fantasy, favourite album, best album, kmmreviews, album, music

Arctic Monkeys' debut album defined a whole generation. British millennials will find something on this album to relate to and rightly so. The album is just about getting drunk and having a terrible time in Sheffield, yet Alex Turner's lyrical capabilities present it in such an outright and provocative manner that it really elevates this album to classic status. 

Drake - Take Care

Let's Talk, Let's Talk About, Music, Oasis, Kanye West, Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys, Drake, Jay Z, David Bowie, Stone Roses, U2, Catfish and The Bottlemen, the balcony, joshua tree, the stone roses, hunky dory, black album,take care, wahtever people say i am, currents, definitely maybe, my beautiful dark twisted fantasy, favourite album, best album, kmmreviews, album, music

Drake's Take Care redefined the way people approached rap music. It made the average rapper more emotionally powered and freed. Drake showed that yeah he's a rapper but he also has all of these emotions that he displays on the R&B charged songs like Take Care and Marvins Room. The album is slightly long and has a few fillers but nonetheless it's still one of the best rap albums of the past 10 years.

Jay Z - The Black Album

Let's Talk, Let's Talk About, Music, Oasis, Kanye West, Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys, Drake, Jay Z, David Bowie, Stone Roses, U2, Catfish and The Bottlemen, the balcony, joshua tree, the stone roses, hunky dory, black album,take care, wahtever people say i am, currents, definitely maybe, my beautiful dark twisted fantasy, favourite album, best album, kmmreviews, album, music

Jay Z's "Final album" came out in 2003, and since then he's released 5 albums and an EP. But Jay Z should have finished after this album for good because it would have been the most incredible high to finish on. Songs like 99 Problems, Dirt off Your Shoulder, What More Can I Say are undeniable classics that will stand the test of time for many years to come.

David Bowie - Hunky Dory

Let's Talk, Let's Talk About, Music, Oasis, Kanye West, Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys, Drake, Jay Z, David Bowie, Stone Roses, U2, Catfish and The Bottlemen, the balcony, joshua tree, the stone roses, hunky dory, black album,take care, wahtever people say i am, currents, definitely maybe, my beautiful dark twisted fantasy, favourite album, best album, kmmreviews, album, music

For me, this is the album that defines Bowie, but not only that, his whole generation of music. Just take a look at the tracklisting on this album and there is some classics that have stood the test of time completely. If someone is looking to get in to Bowie's music then look no further than this album.

Stone Roses - Stone Roses

Let's Talk, Let's Talk About, Music, Oasis, Kanye West, Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys, Drake, Jay Z, David Bowie, Stone Roses, U2, Catfish and The Bottlemen, the balcony, joshua tree, the stone roses, hunky dory, black album,take care, wahtever people say i am, currents, definitely maybe, my beautiful dark twisted fantasy, favourite album, best album, kmmreviews, album, music

The album that inspired a generation. If it weren't for this album then we wouldn't have bands such as Oasis, Blur, Pulp. But what Ian Brown and Co did with this album was take a genre and twist it to their talents and that has very rarely ever been done in music, but these boys did just that in 1989. 

U2 - The Joshua Tree

Let's Talk, Let's Talk About, Music, Oasis, Kanye West, Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys, Drake, Jay Z, David Bowie, Stone Roses, U2, Catfish and The Bottlemen, the balcony, joshua tree, the stone roses, hunky dory, black album,take care, wahtever people say i am, currents, definitely maybe, my beautiful dark twisted fantasy, favourite album, best album, kmmreviews, album, music

U2 really pushed the boat on this album, leaving them with an undeniable rock masterpiece that left them with nothing else to achieve in the genre. Tracks such as With or Without You and Red Hill Mining Town sound just as good today as they did in 1987. Read my Classic Review to see my full thoughts.

Catfish & The Bottlemen -The Balcony

Let's Talk, Let's Talk About, Music, Oasis, Kanye West, Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys, Drake, Jay Z, David Bowie, Stone Roses, U2, Catfish and The Bottlemen, the balcony, joshua tree, the stone roses, hunky dory, black album,take care, wahtever people say i am, currents, definitely maybe, my beautiful dark twisted fantasy, favourite album, best album, kmmreviews, album, music

And finally, lets throw in a really recent album that I absolutely adore. Catfish have captured ever since their early songs. This album really captivated me, with it's sultry acoustic performances but its massive stadium fillers aswell. Not to mention, none of the songs on the album are fillers with songs like Tyrants even being written by Van from as young as 17, it's incredible the talents of this band.

KMMR's TOP 50 ALBUMS OF 2018 // 40-31

And then we move into the 30s, the self-titled pop extravaganza that this is. If you haven't read the previous installments then check them out below:
Honourable Mentions Albums 50-41
40. Bad Sounds - Get Better

I was hoping for a little more from this album but there's no longevity to it whatsoever. Whilst there are some incredibly funky and fantastically produced songs, it doesn't quite pull the album through. Nonetheless, tunes such as "Milk It" and "Wages" are some proper stompers that would make a songs of the year list if I made one.
39. Tom Grennan - Lighting Matches

I find the same issues with this album as I did Bad Sounds, albeit Tom Grennan has a fantastic voice which really makes his music that little bit more unique for me. I do find there's little to no variation between the songs but I can't help but just really enjoy this album.
38. Confidence Man - Confident Music for Confident People

One of the dance records of the year. Whilst it …

Live Review: Bernhoft & The Fashion Bruises at O2 Academy, Birmingham

Bernhoft is a grammy nominated R&B artist, someone who came to my attention this year and blew me away with his album Humanoid, an album that almost edged on the side of pop, taking a large step forward and slightly away from a very traditional R&B setting. So when he stopped by Birmingham on his short rendezvous through Blighty.

First up were Lawrence, a 7 (I think) piece jazz-pop band that I only caught towards the en of their set but what I saw made me wish I'd seen it all, a fantastic rendition of Sean Paul lit the room up incredibly, immediately having me hooked in their set. The songs that followed were each as joyful as the next and contained some of the best contemporary jazz infused music I've heard in ages!

Bernhoft swaggered onto the stage with the Fashion Bruises in tow and blew the roof off the O2 Academy as he ran through a set that began with the title track of his latest record, dancing and performing to songs he loved just as much as the crowd screami…

Introducing... The Shakers

The Shakers make the perfect indie pop, their tunes emit a feeling of joy that is barely matched in the music world. Their tunes can be related to those of bands such as The Orielles or with the production of Jungle. The London-based 5-piece have been growing and growing at such a pace that it wouldn't be ridiculous to see them doing arena tours within the next few years! I had the chance to catch up with the band to chat about their incessantly catchy new single "Get Me Down" which will definitely get your toe tapping faster with every listen. Read the full interview below:

Question. Hey guys, How has it been releasing your new single, "Get Me Down", into the world?
The Shakers: It has been amazing. This one has been a pretty long time in the making so not only is it really exciting to see people’s reactions to the song it has been a huge build up for us personally so it is awesome to see it out there and start getting some nice reactions.

Q. Post-release is the…
