My Top Favorite Albums of the Decade – 7!

Canopy Glow by Anathallo

Because of Christmas I’m taking a day off from writing. Canopy Glow was my pick for the number 1 album of 2008. Here is what I wrote about it last year:

Anathallo went with a more traditional album with this release and it totally worked. Canopy Glow in my mind is nearly perfect with it’s clean production, bold sound, and excellent song writing. Somehow these six guys and one girl are able to compose some of the most genius songs I’ve heard. Each one is unique from beginning to end. There are moments that are fun, exhilarating, haunting, sad, joyful, and even bizarre. Anathallo are known for using a wide range of instruments and again they don’t disappoint. Their use of percussion is particularly delightful. Vocally singers Matt Joynt and Erica Froman have never sounded better. The harmonies are especially to die for, not to mention the backing vocals of the other band members. The lyrics are abstract and yet intriguing, it’s easy to get lost in them. Mostly though, words do little to describe this album.
