Albums of the decade #7 – Easyworld – This Is Where I Stand (2002)

Just like Stellastarr*, Easyworld have a vocalist that sets them apart – David Ford’s voice is really quite remarkable.  Apparently he once sang so high and loud on stage that the blood vessels in his nose exploded.  Another brilliant sequence from tracks 1 to 7, before the last four admittedly tail off a tad.  The melodies on this album are just amazing, and behind them are layers of guitars and drums as well as some really cool electronics and brass.  Easyworld also really know how to enter a chorus with a bang.  Although there are no contenders for greatest song of all time from this album, the overall standard is very, very high.

Like my number seven, the biggest shock so far. I know you do really like this album, and if I thought about it I would have placed it perhaps #9 or #10. But 7?! And above 'Sea Power? Disgusting. And I don't care how unique David Ford's voice is- it's annoying!
