MUSIC | Five favourite albums

One of my favourite perks of having a car is being able to listen to whatever I want on my little car journeys. 

This means Spotify is a must have, as is a million playlists. I've got a playlist I listen to which has a bit of everything for when I'm not quite sure what mood I'm in, and this has well over 100 songs.

But I do find myself migrating back to some albums time and time again.

Here are the albums I've been really digging lately though and have been listening to on repeat.

Who the eff is Halsey and why hadn't I heard of her sooner? Basically someone shared some super cute lyrics (belonging to Ghost) on Tumblr so I tracked down the song, fell in love with it, then subsequently fell in love with the album. A few months later I realized she's also super popular and, well, everyone is in love with the album - not just me. I have no idea why I hadn't heard of her before now/then but I can be quite slow when it comes to new music, hence why I spend too much time loving old albums instead of checking out new ones. Anyway. If you haven't yet, have a listen.
Ahhhh 21 Pilots. This band man. Everyone loves them. And if you don't, it's probably just because you haven't heard their stuff yet. This two-piece band cant really be described genre wise as I guess it's a mixture of rap, rock, pop and punk, but they're impossible not to love. I'll be seeing them at Reading Festival later this year and I'm so effing excited. If you're only going to listen to one song off this album, make it Holding On To You or Guns For Hands. You can thank me later.
I know. I know, ok? But I will not be judged! Busted are awesome and everyone loves them now and I'm so glad they're back. I really love popping on this album and singing along to it at the top of my voice on a hot day. I still remember every word and it brings back so many feels. Right now, my absolute favourite off the album is Everything I knew. But who am I kidding?! All the songs are my favourite...
This one is another oldie, sort of, and I remember listening to it most when I had this god awful boring job when I first graduated from university. I mean it wasn't that boring, but it was pretty much document processing so consisted of mundane jobs like removing staples from pages, typing up info etc. I needed something upbeat to listen to at the time and, songs like Fool Like Me, F*cked In Love and Disaster Boy were kind of my anthems at the time as I was also going through a break up, too.
I love All Time Low but I have to admit, this album is just purely for singing along to. I love it. On a hot day with the windows down in my car. When I'm cooking. When I'm sitting in the garden reading. I can't say I have any memories about this album as I never really got into All Time Low until recent years, but this album is filled with your standard pop-punk catchy anthems - which isn't a bad thing.

So there you have it. Five albums worth listening to right now. You'll love them. You're welcome.

Do let me know your thoughts and if there's any other albums missing from this list!

  1. Totally going to have to check all these out - I seem to be out of the new band / song loop these days I don't really listen to different stations and channels. x

  2. Some great albums there, the self titled Busted albums is one of my favourites and there is no need to be ashamed of it. I saw them last week and they were amazing x

  4. I actually really like busted and I am not ashamed to say it haha.

  5. I need to go and check out these albums right now - I am in need of new music x

  6. I rarely ever listen to albums. Never did, because before the days of Spotify, I'd listen to the radio. I'd never heard of most of these bands, so will be checking them out.

  7. The only album I have heard of here is Busted and I loved them!!
