Rewinding 2019 | The Proudly Loud

The best and the rest of the year's high-volume offerings.

506

You know what they say: If it’s too loud, you’re too old. But you know what they should say? If it’s too loud, you should probably turn it down a bit. Otherwise you’re liable to end up as deaf as I’m getting — this site isn’t called Tinnitist for nothing, folks. But even I can’t resist the urge to crank up the albums below. Now, will someone please answer that damn phone?


TINNITIST’S PICK

The Wildhearts
Renaissance Men

If you’ve never heard of The Wildhearts, I pity you as I would the village idiot. And I am willing to bet you’re from North America. For some reason that I’ve never been able to fathom, these fearsomely fantastic British hard-rawk rebels have never been able to get any traction on this side of the Atlantic, despite being deservedly beloved in their homeland. Well, here’s your chance to do your small part in making up for that. The long-overdue Renaissance Men is the on-again, off-again band’s ninth album and first new LP in a decade. It’s also a balls-out blast of wall-to-wall punk and metal that’s as good as anything they’ve ever released.
