Kin’s Top 10 Albums

1. Brand X – Unorthodox Behaviour

Phil Collins on drums, Percy Jones on bass, perfection.

2. Ernest Ranglin – Below The Bassline

I love Dr. Ranglin. Enough said.

3. Meshuggah – Nothing

Killer album.

4. Charlie Hunter Trio – Bing, Bing, Bing

I heard Charlie’s rendition of Nirvana’s ‘Come As You Are’ on the radio, and was instantly hooked.

5. Frank Sinatra & Count Basie – It Might As Well Be Swing

I found this album while hunting through my grandparents record collection. Frank is a master. And Basie’s arrangements are sublime.

6. Mats/Morgan – Live

Morgan Agren was the drummer on Fredrik Thordendal’s Special Defects. I can’t remember how I stumbled onto Mats/Morgan, but I am ever grateful that I did. They are incredible musicians.

7. Cult Of Luna – Salvation

This is the perfect winter album for me. Lush, heavy, and warm!

8. Peter Gabriel – Shaking The Tree

I grew up with Peter Gabriel’s music. I am a huge fan!

9. Secret Chiefs 3 – Book M

I could pretty much list every album that Secret Chiefs have delivered. But Book M would be at the top of that pile.

10. Tom Waits – Beautiful Maladies: The Island Years

Tom Waits. Genius. Need I say more?  |  |
