Year 2011 Round-up Part 6: Dolorean, The Deep Dark Woods, Dawes, Glossary, Ryan Adams

More huge favourites from the year 2011. One of these will also be my album of the year. And at least three of them are in the top 10.

Dolorean – Country Clutter from the album The Unfazed

The Deep Dark Woods – West Side Street (from the album The Place I Left Behind, not the best track on the album, but amazing nevertheless)

Dawes – If I Wanted Someone from the album Nothing Is Wrong

Glossary – A Shoulder To Cry On from the album Long Live All Of Us

Ryan Adams – Lucky Now (from the album Ashes & Fire)

Album of the Month: Glossary – Long Live All Of Us

I don’t really have the time to write proper reviews at the moment, but here’s a couple of quick words about new brilliant Glossary album.

It’s dark when you leave for work and it’s again dark when you get back home from work. That’s the lovely Finnish November. You can barely see the light of the day and therefore it’s rather nice to listen to something that makes you feel the summer in your heart. Glossary’s new album Long Live All Of Us is the kind of a record that makes everything all alright and it just feels damn good to listen to it.

Long Live All Of Us is definitely a major contender when One Chord to Another (well me) starts selecting those very best albums of the year. I love everything about it. Just perfect soulful rock in my books. The band might be best known in the alt-country/americana/country rock circles, but you don’t really need to have a single country bone in your body to be able to fall in love with Glossary. Sure that background shines through, but things like E Street Band comes to mind as well. Actually if you love the great Finnish rock’n’roll group Damn Seagulls, you should definitely check out Glossary. My favourites might change on an hourly basis. Currently they might be When We Were Wicked and The Flood. These are not on soundcloud, but these two below are equally amazing. Long Live All Of Us is a marvellous record and easily worth all five hearts.

This is the opening track Trouble Won’t Last Always:

And this is a song called A Shoulder To Cry On:
