The Year Ahead

Every year, I try to a review of the best albums of the previous year, and I also like to take note of what we can look forward to in the next year. This is the latter.

There is a lot of buzz about some major releases to come in the year – much is confirmed, some is rumored based on the artist completing or having completed studio work and moving into the final stages (including naming the album), and some is purely speculation based on tidbits here and there.

The below is a list of albums I am looking forward to.

Confirmed and Eagerly Anticipated

  • Massive Attack

  • Explosions In The Sky – I actually have a copy of this album already, and it is gorgeous!

  • Arcade Fire

  • Interpol

  • The Cure

  • Martina Topley-Bird

  • The Stooges

  • Perry Ferrell

  • Do Make Say Think

Confirmed But Not Eagerly Anticipated

  • The Shins

  • Wilco

  • Modest Mouse – the inclusion of Johnny Marr intrigues me

Rumored (or at least hopeful)

  • Radiohead

  • Bjork

  • Sigur Ros DVD – collection of live videos from their 2006 Iceland tour

  • Nine Inch Nails

  • Portishead – the same rumor every year

  • Common

  • Postal Service

  • Peter Gabriel

  • The Doves

  • U2

  • Tori Amos

  • Spoon

  • Feist

  • Blur

  • Built To Spill

Here’s to a great year!
