The Kills, 'Blood Pressures'
43/50

43. The Kills, 'Blood Pressures'

The best record yet from the blues-punk duo Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince is sex-drenched fury. Mosshart howls ferociously, from the gospel-tinged "Satellite" to the primal "Nails in My Coffin," while Hince manhandles his guitar in dangerous and excellent ways.
