Album Must-Haves for Every Music Fan [PHOTOS]
If you are a true music lover, you know the feeling that there are just some records that you keep going back to again and again, perhaps because of the amazing lyrics or a simply melancholic chord.
Here are some of that kind of music that you may want to have in your own music shelf at home:
Ryan Adams on "Ashes and Fire." Yes, he is a singer that is truly enigmatic and with his last Brisbane concert, many did not really get him. But out of all the huge crowds of audiences out there, there are still just a few that specially loves his music.
REM and "Collapse Into Now" Album. One of the greatest American bands of all time have said goodbye in so much style that you should not miss having them in your collection.
KD Lang and the Siss Boom Bang with their album "Sing It Loud." With Lang's return as one of the best female songwriters, she gets back to her roots of country rock music and comes up with the best album she has ever made in the last ten years. Once you listen to her, you know her sound would be the same as listening to Elvis Presley born again as a female artist.
Steve Grady. He is deemed to be one of the best young singer-songwriters of this time especially in the Australian album scene.
Marianne Faithfull. She is one of the most memorable artists from the 60's but she is very successful in maintaining her sound to be truly fresh and contemporary, especially with her 'Horses and High Heels' album.
