1. PORCUPINE TREE – BLACKEST EYES
Porcupine Tree never stops to amaze me. Steven Wilson always slogs about each of his song being different and special in its own way.Well this song certainly is!!!
Starting with a slow build up and some whacky patch and suddenly the drums,guitar and bass burst in to the scene altogether with a Larger than life Riff.And when you expect the song to be more heavier the Verse moves on in to a acoustic delay pattern suddenly with beautiful vocals by Steve. I like the verse more then the Riff to be honest.But the whole song structure is really worth sweeping you off your feet when you least expect it.
2. Say GoodBye – Junkyard Groove
This song is stuck in my head for more than a week or so.This ballad of sorts comes from an Indian Band “Junkyard Grooooove” ( With a Madrasi accent :P).. I becam a fan of this song as soon as i heard it. Reminds me of all the wonderfull people in my life.And when a song does that you know you are totally in love with that song..[:)]. Ameeth provides touching vocals and Siddhu is one of my favourite Guitarists now ( with his Slash Look alike Outfit )
” Say Goodbye, Say goodbye aahaaye. Never wanna live to see that day, when i have to say Goodbye “
3. Best i Ever Had – Vertical Horizon
I have to admit i didn’t like this band as much earlier. Just thought they were a one song wonder when i had heard their song ” You’re a GOD” from the movie “Bruce Almighty“. Downloaded the album instantly and listened to it. Initially didn’t find it that good. Suddenly i’m humming all their tunes..[:P]. Best I ever had is a simple 4 Chord piece with simple yet catchy melody. The Vocalust surely tries to keep it simple and as a band,they are what u can say A ‘Mainstream’ band with repeating the same formulae in their last album too which was one of the best albums last year.
4. Spitleaf – ZERO
Another Indian Band on the List, the disbanded ‘Zero’ ( i really wish they come back together ) produced a musical masterpiece from their album ‘Hook’. Spitleaf starts with a bluesy kinda feeling which isn’t a surprise considering Warren’s influences and then builds up rhythm and drums. If the crowds go mad hearing ‘ Standing by Standing by Standing by Standing by ‘ they simply stand in awe listening to Spitleaf. This is ‘The‘ Warren Mendosa special. [:)]. The Patterns are repeated with some Legato playing and pull off’s in the scale of A major. Been trying this song for a week or so. I just hope i pull it off.
5. Open Your eyes – Alter Bridge
Nobody does it better then ‘The King of wah wah’. Open your eyes has one of the best solos i have ever heard. And you will always find this song in Top 5 songs of the week ( only if i could :P)
A band having two ‘Legendary’ Guitarist’ ( Myles Kennedy is one of the best Jazz Guitarists in the world ) that’s what you would expect from them. A Kick ass band, a ‘faadu’ song and Mark Tremonti is GOD..:P
That ends my top 5 songs of the list. Its none of my bussiness if you don’t like it. I Love it and that’s all i care.
Listen to it when your teacher kicks you out of the class ( yeah, my college does that often, neways i’m better off out then listening to those jerks ) or when you travelling or when you’re having sex [:P] or doing whatever you are doing (that’s none of my bussiness).
