An album is nothing without a great start. It sets the tone for the rest of the journey and if your shoes aren't blown across the room, then we're off to a bad start. I've taken the risk of compiling a batch of awesome openers, be they rocking anthems or subtle works of amazing that set the pace for what's to come. Listening to so much coolness in one sitting could destroy the world, but it's a risk I'm willing to take.
Note: Buy new shoes.
