Tickets There: Top 50 Albums (2000 – 2009)

So, it’s decade ending time. All the music publications, webzines, blogs, fans everyone with a computer and the ability to type has a list of their top 5, 10, 20, 50, 1,000, 1,000,000 albums of the last ten years and the great, thoughtful, original minds that drive, create, nurture and bring you Tickets There have finally decided we’ll do one to. Sher if everyone else is, why wouldn’t we? Tickets There never claimed (in the last 30 minutes) to be original or independent so we’ll follow the herd with the list thing. Not really sure what’s the point since we probably only bought 20 albums in the last ten years that were actually released in that time.

Instead of doing the 1 – 50 order, we’re putting them in chronologically.  This is a basic, hastily put together history of what shaped the amazing, the incredible, the mind-bendingly stunning tastes held by all at Tickets There HQ.

(Please don’t give me hell for Testament, but that album deserves to be on this list, even though it wasn’t released in the time frame. Damn calendar counter counters!!)

MySpace Review – NoLady

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, MySpace Review with tags , , , , , , on October 29, 2009 by Tickets There


Rain, wind, miserable attitudes, negativity, Karma and broken machines. Not such a good week! Tickets There has been pretty quiet on the article front, sorry about that folks. Sweet fuck all happening in the world of music from what I what I see. I suppose the Elton John fanatics don’t spend much time here so won’t be covering that story. Anyways, amidst all this crap, Tickets There has decided it’s time for another MySpace Review.

Now, on the surface, us reviewing a band that describes themselves as 80’s Influenced Dance Rock could be a bad thing but I happen to like The first track, Little Diva. So, in the interest of being eclectic (Tickets There has no such interest – Ed.) we’re going through with it. The band is from Donegal (Up the North West!) and have a few well known music heads on the line-up, including Aine O’ Doherty (Onya) and Billy Fitzgerald (Dead Flags) on guitar. Now, there’s intense, detailed, factual and serious hard core research for ye 😉

As usual I’ve never seen them live or heard their EP/Album.

I like Little Diva. It’s well produced, it’s full of life and the band sound great and most importantly, it’s a perfectly written little slice of pop rock. The actual song wouldn’t be on Pink Floyd levels of originality and we’ve all heard several other songs that sound very similar to this one but it’s a good effort. Anyone out there looking for some good time, dance floor styled beats this weekend (or a similar act top Lady Ga Ga), Little Diva is for you!

Spotlight is even better. Starts off a little slowly and the style doesn’t change a whole pile until about a minute in and the guitars pick themselves up a notch. Hard, heavy, solid pounding beats that really do hit the spot. Electronic pop a go go!. Much more interesting than Little Diva and get’s better each time you listen.

Typical, you find a shite band and you can’t say enough,. It’s like God comes down and works with you to think up the most hideous, degrading and gruesome insults man has ever conceived….then the fucking Ed bitch deletes them and bob’s your uncle, 8,000 words on Irelands leading crap bags. But you find a decent act and all you can write is good beats. Ah well.

Green Eye’s is just a tad stale and is too similar to most pop songs in the world. It’s nice in the fact that Aine has a really good voice, especially for this kind of track. It’s grand for what it is but not as full on as the other two. It’s short though so that stands in its favor. If you had to sit through it for eight minutes you might go a little spare.

Over all, Tickets There would recommend. It’s good clean fun pop rock and sometimes you just need that.
