The Bluetones – Science & Nature (album)
The first Bluetones album I bought and I just loved it! I think it’s their most varied and eclectic album, which is probably why I like it so much.
‘Zorrro’ – One of the best opening tracks to an album ever!!! So so brilliant.
‘Keep The Home Fires Burning’ – The song that got me into The Bluetones. I heard it on the radio and was blown away – it’s still one of my favourites. I love the way in which the intro sounds like it should be in a hovis ad!! I might be alone in that. Anyway, before I started playing the album I watched the video for it, as the CD-Rom part started auto-running. I hadn’t seen the video in years! I’d completely forgotten that Mark’s randomly dressed as a valkyrie or something towards the end of the video. Not only is he a very attractive man, but he makes a remarkably attractive woman!! I wonder if it’s on YouTube…stupid question, of course it is! 🙂
‘Emily’s Pine’ – The last track already?! Ever single track on this album’s brilliant – and I don’t say that lightly! I love the dark undercurrent this song has.
The Bluetones – The Singles (album)
Aha, the Greatest Hits type affair. I’m never sure whether to class these things as albums or something separate, but currently have them classed as albums on my shelves. Of course my version of this is the limited edition double CD with the bonus disc – bought on the day of release if I remember correctly.
The Bluetones – Luxembourg (album)
This is a pretty short album at only 34 mins, but it’s brilliant! It definitely challenges Science & Nature as my fave Bluetones album. I can’t believe it was released 3 years ago already!
‘Never Going Nowhere’ – “Some words can cut you like the sharpest blade – I don’t love you any more. I don’t love you any more”. Suuuuuch a good song!!!
‘Little Bear’ – This is my least favourite song on the album and the only one I’d be tempted to skip. Not that it’s not good, I just don’t reckon it’s as fab as all the other songs.
‘Turn It Up’ – One of the best last tracks on an album ever!! It definitely works in making you want to play the album again! “Here we are at the end already – flip it over again”. You’ve also gotta love the lyric “First in on every sigh, lions and tigers and bears, oh my!” ;-D
