The Best Albums Of The Decade: #20 - Ancient Melodies Of The Future
MP3: Built To Spill - Alarmed
#20 - Built To Spill - Ancient Melodies Of The Future
Warner Brothers Records 2001
Joey On Ancient Melodies Of The Future:
There are better Built To Spill albums (this year's There's No Enemy could take this spot over with another year of listens), but this is the best one of the decade, plus as any fan knows there is no such thing as a bad Built To Spill album. Fair enough.
A guitar centric band includes some trippy keys to compliment emotion which takes you anywhere from "Strange" to "The Weather". It becomes quite a ride the entire listen through, always enjoyable and always important. That's why I love Built To Spill.
