World's End Girlfriend - Hurtbreak Wonderland
I had first heard World's End Girlfriend (a.k.a the king of badass album covers) in 2005 with his release The Lie Lay Land, which at the time completely blew my mind. It wasn't something I would ordinarily listen to on a regular basis but his blend of electronica and classical music was virtually flawless. His release for 2007 totally surpasses any expectation I ever had, and completely blows away the previous release. Anyone who knows me personally knows I rarely use the word "brilliant" when describing anything, but I honestly can't think of a word more fitting for this album. This shit is brilliant. Anyone who enjoyed Venetian Snares' Rossz Csillag Allat Szuletett, may very well enjoy this too, although the tempo is much much slower and his sound is not riddled with the influence of drugs (at least I don't think so). This is one of the most articulate albums you may ever hear.
