Just sharing a few great albums

Disclaimer: I'm no music expert

Daft Punk - Discovery
Very catchy tunes in this album, such as "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger". But they've somehow tweaked their electronic tunes to sound soulful as well. Robots singing about love, that's one of my favourite genres.

Aimee Mann - Bachelor No. 2
Her lyrics are great, but I needed a few listens to catch everything. A lot of strange instruments were used on this cd, giving it a varied and interesting feel. I can't really decide if the songs are optimistic or depressing... still great pop music nonetheless.

Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
Probably one of my favourite albums. Heart-rending and catchy and just damn near flawless. Surreal and whimsical yet deeply personal. I didn't take to it at first, after a few listens I was hooked. I bought the band's previous albums and was not disappointed either. But only this one features ROBOTS SINGING ABOUT LOVE.
