2008 In Music Album 8

8. British Sea Power - Do You Like Rock Music?
Critics seemed to jump all over this album saying that British Sea Power was trying too hard to be U2. Well maybe that is why I enjoy the album so much. While it may not be their best album, it definitely caught my attention and I have since bought their first two albums. It is full of arena rock anthems that make you want to stand up and wave a flag. The lyrics are great on this album, whether talking about bringing people together under the same flag by drinking together or the historical references to events such as the North Sea flood of 1953. Eleventh months later, I still enjoy this album.

Favourites: Waving Flags, No Lucifer, Canvey Island
