FunFunFun's Favourite Albums of 2006 (5-1)

Here's the final part of my end of year, top albums list. Have you guessed what's numebr 1 yet? No its not Robbie's Rudebox or Take That's Greatest Hits, oops sorry if thats spoilt it for anyone, ok i won't say anymore, just read on.

5. The Knife - Silent Shout
Only got this album quite recently and couldn't get into it for a while, then We Share Your Mother's Health came on my mp3 player one day and it just blew me away. After that the beauty of the whole album came really easily, all its complex beats and quirky vocals, it just gets inside your head and creates a dark dark vision. I really want to see this band live

The Knife - We Share Your Mother's Health

4. Tilly & The Wall - Bottom Of Barrels
These guys have really been my band of the year, They just bring so much enjoyment to their music - have you seen the Sing Songs Along video?!! So much fun!!!! - this album encapsulates that energy and attitude so well, with the joyous tracks and the downbeat ones working off each other with wonderful varities. It may help that they put on such an awesome live show and that Bad Education is my fav song of 2006 too. I love them like i love candyfloss

Tilly & The Wall - Bad Education

3. Gallows - Orchestra Of Wolves
No other album this year has hit me with such a ferocity that i was certain that my nose was bleeding after my first listen. This hardcore punk band from Watford have released a beast of a debut that is damn right brutal in all the right place as well as being technical, clever and witty as well. Its really refreshing to hear a British band with such attitude and talent, hopefully you Yanks will cotton on. Kerrang! said 'Best British punk band since The Clash' and, i hate to say this, but i may have to agree with them.

Gallows - In The Belly Of A Shark

2. Final Fantasy - He Poos Clouds
This album being at no. 2 is quite a surprise to me, let alone anyone else. Only got it last month but it immediately struck as something new, odd and brilliant. The arrangements and instrumentation is incredible, i really can't believe that its just a looped violin sometimes, but the tracks with the orchestra are equally amazing. The lyrics are wierd and witty and compliment the music so well. To be honest, it probably would have got into this list on just its name alone but its because of the wonderful tracks that this album is so high

Final Fantasy - Many Lives 49 MP

1. Hot Chip - The Warning
This may not have been a surprise to anyone that reads my blog regularly. I was wetting my pants about this release almost exactly a year ago, after seeing them funk out the trendies at Trash and it pretty much lived up to all the hype and expectations. Full of dancehall bangers and subtle slow ones, its such a great listen and any album that contains Over And Over should appear high in anyones list. Its a track that gets better with every listen and makes you resonate once you start moving to its hypnotic beats. Its pure brilliance and i'm sure it will be reappearing in my cd player for years to come

Hot Chip - The Warning

So there you go! Did you guess it? I really hope 2007 is as good for music as 2006 was, and if it is, i really can't wait for it!

i have a problem with my internal HDD. When this all happened, i was playing a game online. I got a Virus Worm and i shut down my computer and reformatted my HDD and put windows back on. I had a secondary HDD in for back-up purposes. so got windows in and put everything back, but i then noticed that my computers performance went down drastically with my main HDD, I could not copy anything i had onto the back-up drive and once i did it was so slow to copy the file. Once i had all the files on the back-up drive, i decided to start from the back-up drive with windows. Same applied. It was really slow with the reading-and-writing. i decided to take the secondary back-up drive out and boot from the main HDD. Everything seemed to be running smoothly i checked the main HDD Temperature with HD tune. The drives temp was 37 degrees Celsius, and the drive went to normal temperature of 43-44 degrees Celsius. I then decided to plug in the secondary HDD and leave it on for a day. the temperature went from 43-44 degrees to 47-48 degrees Celsius. So my guess is that the HDD drives are getting way to hot, and i am getting what seems like bad sectors in the drive, but it has never done this before. I have always had my back-up drive in ever since i got my main HDD. I can't place my finger on what is wrong with my drives. Once the main HDD is lower temperatures the drive seems to be performing better. but its normal temperature is 43-44 degrees Celsius and i still have some problems with reading and writing then. Can someone tell me what has happened please. I dont know if it was from the worm virus or if the temperatures are getting too hot (but has never done this before) can someone tell me what to do. I have changed the line leading into the motherboard as well, and that seems to have no effect. i even swapped the board lines between the CD drives and the HDD drives, no effect on that either. can someone tell me what is going on, i have ran out of options.
