1. Dig Out Your Soul – Dig Out Your Soul is the seventh and final studio album by the English rock band Oasis, released on 6 October 2008 by Big Brother Records. It was recorded between August and December 2007 at Abbey Road Studios, and January and March 2008 at The Village Recorder, the first single, The Shock of the Lightning, was released shortly before the release of the album, on 29 September 2008. In promotion of the album, the band embarked on a tour, debuting in Seattle at the WaMu Theater. They also performed three shows at Manchesters Heaton Park. A January 2007 interview for NME, Noel Gallagher gave new details on his vision for the album, All the tunes Ive written recently have been on the kind of acoustic side, you know. But for the next record I really fancy doing a record where we just completely throw the kitchen sink at it and we havent done that since Be Here Now. Id like to get, like, a 100-piece orchestra and choirs, I think since Standing on the Shoulder of Giants weve been trying to prove a point of just bass, drums, guitar and vocals and nothing fancy. But I kind of like fancy, id like to make an absolutely fucking colossal album. Like literally two orchestras, stuff like that, in October 2007, Noel revealed more about the record to BBC6 Music, Funnily enough, we all write separately, but for some reason all the songs sound like theyve got a common thread. Weve been focusing round the more this time, the last album was quite songy, if that makes any sense. But it was quite songy, The Importance of Being Idle, Let There Be Love – it was quite a British, retro and this is kinda focusing round the grooves more. Saying that, weve only done two tracks but all the demos that weve done are great, Ive been re-visiting some of my more psychedelic trips of a younger man, because I remember them all you see. putting them to music. In a November 2007 interview with Reuters, singer Liam Gallagher revealed more details on how the record is going, All the songs are wrote, Theres no acoustic on it, man. We rehearsed about 10 tunes before coming in, some are Noels, some are Gems, some are Andys. Were there for a time, so we just keep pickin em off the tree. Some are sounding really fucking heavy, and then were picking some out, so we just keep moving about. Gallagher also revealed that the record, Will have everything thrown at it, lets just hope that Noels learnt his lesson in the studio this time. In a 15 June 2008 interview with talkSPORT, Noel said the album was colossal, rockin and added its gonna sound great live, between various songs on the album are several interludes
2. Aftertaste (album) – Aftertaste is the fourth album by Helmet, released in 1997 on Interscope. This proved to be Helmets final album with original members John Stanier, guitarist Rob Echeverria, who appeared on Helmets previous outing, Betty, left the group to join Biohazard. Subsequently, the album was recorded as a three-piece, with Page Hamilton covering all the guitar parts, guitarist Chris Traynor came on board for the supporting tour. Aftertaste harkens back to Helmets earlier sound, omitting some of the tendencies of Betty. The album met with a critical reaction and poor commercial response. This album along with Meantime and Betty is considered a text in post-metal. Hamilton said his goal in writing the album was to create a mix between smarts and crunch. I dont want to say that Im sick of the visceral animal response that we get - Im not, I need more than seeing a bunch of kids jumping around and breaking each others noses. I feel like I really need to communicate with an audience who will listen, whatever I write in a rock n roll context will elicit a conditioned response, unless I quit rock and make a country record or something. The album was close to being released in the fall of 1996, with promotional interviews being held, the album release was withdrawn and the mix duties were handed from Producer Dave Sardy to Terry Date. The version of Pure that appeared on the Exactly What You Wanted CD single in 1997 appears to be taken from this version of the album. The track list of the early version wouldve held Insatiable as the opening track, renovation at the time was not included in the album as it was to be contributed exclusively to a Soundtrack compilation album. The album was met with mixed to positive reviews music critics. Its a shocking and disheartening turn of events for one of the more intriguing metal bands of the 90s, muse bassist Chris Wolstenholme has mentioned Aftertaste as his favourite album. All tracks written by Page Hamilton, except where noted
3. Golden State (album) – Golden State is the fourth studio album by the British band Bush, released in 2001. However, it ended up being their worst-selling album to date and this would also prove to be the last album to feature Nigel Pulsford and Dave Parsons. Bush would not release another album until ten years later with The Sea of Memories. The liner notes of Golden State cite the album in memory of Ian Lowery, in the documentary Making Of Golden State, the title is revealed as being inspired by the Golden State Freeway, which Gavin Rossdale used to use to get home. In discussing the direction, frontman Gavin Rossdale commented, is quite rough. Its kind of coming back full circle, after almost a decade of being a band, I think we passed the stage of having to prove anything. He also described it as very naked and definitely a rock record. Rossdale added The album is very empowering and uplifting, though Im not really sure what its contemporaries are, thats the weird thing about it. Its like the record exists in its own space, to counteract this, he used the name Golden State because it sounded warm and positive. Regarding the songs theme, Rossdale noted Im far more relaxed. The stripped down style was a result of the band practicing all the songs five weeks before recording. This voided the use of elements as heard on The Science of Things. And as a final test, Rossdale played the songs through a shitty car stereo to make sure they recorded well, Nigel Pulsford later expressed disappointment at the final mix of the album, The albums original cover featured an outline of a passenger airliner. Following the September 11,2001 attacks, the changed the artwork to something more minimal. Upon release, The People That We Love saw significant radio play as well as rotation of its music video on MTV2. However, compared to earlier Bush hits, it has since been forgotten on radio. A follow up single was not released in the US, making this Bushs final American single for 9 years until reunited in 2010 with the single Afterlife, in the UK, Inflatable was released as a single with an accompanying video. Golden State was released by Atlantic Records, which originally distributed Sixteen Stone, Bush co-hosted the 22 October 2001 edition of Channel One News to promote the album and give away an autographed copy, an act which critics of the educational program derided
4. Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death) – Holy Wood is the fourth studio album by American rock band Marilyn Manson, released in November 2000 by Nothing and Interscope Records. The album marked a return to the industrial and alternative styles of the bands earlier efforts. As their first release following the Columbine High School massacre of April 20,1999, the bands frontman, Marilyn Manson, described the record as a declaration of war. A rock opera concept album, it is the installment in a trilogy which includes Antichrist Superstar. After its release, Manson said that the story within the trilogy is presented in reverse chronological order, Holy Wood, therefore. It was written in the former home in the Hollywood Hills and recorded in several undisclosed locations, including Death Valley. At its release, Holy Wood received mixed-to-positive reviews, many noted that while ambitious. The album was not at first as commercially successful as the two previous releases, and took three years to receive a gold certification from the RIAA. Nevertheless, with sales of over nine million copies as of 2011. It spawned three singles and a film project which was modified into the as-yet-unreleased Holy Wood novel. Marilyn Manson supported the album with the controversial Guns, God, on November 10,2010, British rock magazine Kerrang. Published a 10th-anniversary commemorative piece in which called the album Mansons finest hour. A decade on, there has not been as eloquent and savage a musical attack on the media. Still scathingly relevant a credit to a man who refused to sit and take it, by the time of their Rock Is Dead Tour in 1999, the bands outspoken frontman had become a culture war iconoclast and a rallying icon for alienated youth. As their popularity increased the transgressive, confrontational nature of the groups music, politicians across the political spectrum lobbied to have their performances banned, citing rumors that the shows contained animal sacrifices, bestiality and rape. On April 20,1999, Columbine High School students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold shot 12 students, in the aftermath of the fourth-deadliest school shooting in United States history, the band became a scapegoat. Early media reports alleged that the shooters were fans of the band, speculation in national media and among the public blamed Mansons music and imagery for inciting Harris and Klebold. Later reports revealed that the two considered the band a joke, despite this, the group were widely criticized by religious, political and entertainment-industry figures
