Back in 2009, Billy Talent had a lot to prove with their aptly titled third album ‘III’, considering it followed the undeniably brilliant ‘I’ and ‘II’, and, while it wasn’t a particularly bad album, it just wasn’t up to the astronomically high standards the Canadians had set for themselves. Then came 2012’s ‘Dead Silence’. Packed full of killer tracks each with a distinct progression in their sound, it was definitive proof that Billy Talent were back on track.

At the moment, it’s looking like 2016 is going to be a great year in terms of new albums, with a handful of huge bangers already out there and many more undoubted hits confirmed to be hitting out ears in the next few months.

Of course there are hundreds, but we filtered together 50 great albums that turn 10-years-old this year to remember those modern classics, accompanied with streams to bring ourselves a massive hit of euphoric nostalgia.

Rating:

Billy Talent have now come to the time in their career to release the inevitable greatest hits compilation, and attempt to claw in some new punk rock fans who have somehow missed them over the last decade. Although a clearly outdated/expensive way of acquiring a singles playlist for anybody with even half of the music available, a compilation record can appeal to a younger generation of fans who may have heard ‘Red Flag’ one day and wanted an overview of the Canadian band’s career. Add to that two brand new unreleased tracks, and you suddenly get a great excuse to spin a bunch of Billy Talent tracks on ‘Hits’ to see if you still remember all of the words.
