    Review: This album was the breakthrough for 28 Days...after commercial success with their EP's...their debut album took off in the Australian charts...A great blend of rap/scratching/rock and a little bit of hip/hop this album had it all...With 3 big singles and a full album worth of quality songs...This was one of the suprises of 2000...and definately still a fav of mine 3 years later...*new album coming hopefully mid next year*...they have also released a follow up album *Stealing Chairs in mid/late 2002*...(if you like upstyledown...i will rip stealing chairs for you guys)...Sadly in 2001 they lost their drummer in a freak accident and has sadly been missed by all...he was so young and such a great guy...Thoughts are always with him and his family...

    Review: Well what hasn't this man done...released one day later than 28 Days - Upstyledown...even though this album had less success, it put a ordinary guy with a talent into Australia's music spotlight...His blend of soft acoustic rock was an instant success...With two hit songs *Lucky Star and My Way Home* and a lot more to offer...with two more albums following *watching angels mend* and *distant light*...Alex has continued to create beautiful music...if you like listening to soft rock...this is one of the best examples you could ever listen too...

    Review: This album is right up the top with my favourites...The album is full of 12 fun and brilliant songs...Especially the cover of *The Cure's - Boys Don't Cry*...which is right up there with (me first and the gimme gimmes) status...This album was Area 7's finest hour and never got the recognition it deserved...It is a definant must get for all punk/ska fans...They have released only one other album *Say It To My Face* (which i do not have...and if someone has it on soulseek...contact me)...I have listened to it and it is just as great...And they will be releasing a new album sometime next year...

    Review: Australia's finest grindcore specialists...These guys are in the same league as (Anal C*nt)...they are funny, you can barely understand what they are saying and they have pretty interesting song titles...They are a real interestind band and if you are into grindcore (they are a must) and if your not...i would check them out for shits and giggles...They have released a fair bit of stuff and have just released a new album today i think...*Meat Song (Stiffy in McDonalds)* is a definant listen to...

    Review: Bodyjar are not one of my favourite bands...and this album is right down the bottom of the top 30...Although this album has a few good songs...its sadly not one of the best albums...They are a pretty tight punk rock band...They just don't have the same quality of the american/canadian punk rock bands...None the less this is a pretty alright album...*Fall To The Ground* being an excellent song...They have been around for a while and they have some nice other songs on other albums like *remote controller* and a cover of *The Bangles - Hazy Shade Of Winter*...

    Website: www.bodyjar.com

    Well there is the first 5 albums in the top 30 done...i hope you find this interesting and i hope you do take note and give some of these artists a try...i am sharing all the albums mentioned on soulseek...and im sharing list only...so if you have a quick connection i suggest you download them all...anyways thats enough from me...i will continue the top 30 tomorrow...

    Score: 4/5

    Review: Custard are on of the pioneers of the new and reformed Australian music scene...This album is the last studio album they ever made and sadly now they have split up...The album was the pinacle of their career...with their catchy pop/rock songs and their aussie nature...they easily became a favourite amongst the indie scene...With songs like *the new matthew* and *hit song*...they eventually made it on the mainstream charts...Overall the album was high quality music...a great ending to a great band (2 years later they released a greatest hits/b sides album)...

    Review: Australia&#39;s new pop princess...this debut album from Delta has blown away even the strongest doubters...with everyone from 12 year old girls to mid 30&#39;s guys really getting into this album...This album has broken sales records in Australia...with a 19 week number 1 album (at the moment its sitting at number 2) and 4 Number 1 singles (at the moment she has 2 singles in the top50...one at number 2 and the other at number 34)...She has a beautiful voice and is a talented pianist...With 10 Aria nominations...her album beckons to be one of the greatest Australian albums of all time...She is currently only 18 years old and is fighting Hodgkins Lymphoma which is treated by chemotherapy...she is recovering well from that and hopefully she fights it all the way...she is such a beautiful girl and person and this album is just pure brilliance...

    Review: George were the band of 2002...their debut album Polyserena was at least 5 years in the making...Australias biggest music secret was finally given the chance to shine...and shine they did...This is one of the few albums that can send shivers up my spine...Katie&#39;s beautiful classical trained voice and her brothers amazing voice come together beautifully with the background of guitars and piano&#39;s and various other instruments...As soon as someone asks me to nominate an Australian band to download...this is the first band i will mentioned and not one bad bit of negetive feedback has come back about them...With their brilliant blend of pop/rock and standout songs of *spawn* and *release*...this album is worth its weight in gold...

    Review: Australia&#39;s premier rock band in my eyes...These guys have had to live in the shadow of the likes of powderfinger, silverchair, etc and have never reached the level of success they have so deserved...This album was their debut album after years of demo&#39;s and EP&#39;s...and this album was definately a breakthrough and guided them onto bigger and better things...The album delivers on so many levels with their grunge/punk/rock sound...They are Australia&#39;s best live act and it shows with 2 years on non stop touring around the country and the world...(if you like this album i have all of their other albums shared in soulseek)...if you love your rock you will love these guys...

    Website: www.grinspoon.com.au

    Thats it for this lot...hope you found something you like amongst those...I will put the next 5 up either tonight or tomorrow...keep downloading the Australian music in soulseek...anyways thats enough from me...enjoy teh music...
