TOP 10 ALBUMS OF THE YEAR - NUMBER 4
Transit
Young New England
This album got a huge amount of stick when it was released and I still don’t really understand why. Sure, it’s not Transit of a few years ago but bands evolve. It’s not exactly been a great year for Boston either and in many ways these songs are made more poignant by their timing and context. ("Boston never drinks alone") It’s one of the only albums I actually forked out to get on vinyl and that should tell you enough. I love it a great deal.

Potential best tour of the year. Yep.

Life seems hopeless and we are all alone.

TOP 10 ALBUMS OF THE YEAR - NUMBER 8

Transit Listen & Forgive

I’m finding it impossible to order my top 8. Transit have made what could easily be my album of the year any other year, but the songwriting in what’s to come just edges it out. I think it’s a summer album that was released slightly too late, silly really.

Listen To (YouTube links): Long Lost Friends, Listen & Forgive, Skipping Stone
FFO: Man Overboard, The Story So Far, Such Gold

I learnt to say these words long before I knew just what they meant

Transit are way too good.

I wish that I could say that I’m wishing you the best, but I’m not.

In my dreams you run back to me

And isn’t it amazing in this world
Anyone can love anyone at all 

Oh my God.

Why is the world so sad?

In my defence the sky isn’t getting any clearer
And day by day I’m finding places in myself that were
Best left under lock and key
