Okay well, I'm going to let loose with this. My friends tell me I have odd taste, but that's probably because my parents are Jamaican, heh.
(I do love Bob Marley though.)
Only By The Night - Kings of Leon
I'm in love with this album currently. The songs are sexy, sometimes emotional (but not in a my-girlfriend-left-me-she's-a-biatch kind of way) each song has it's own distinct sound, and you just want to sing along or dance. The lead singer has a great voice, and there are a lot of great riffs in some songs, and awesome verses/choruses in others.
The Photo Album - Death Cab for Cutie; Transatlaticism - Death Cab for Cutie
I like the majority of Death Cab's songs on all their albums, I currently have 80 songs from them. But these two albums have a lot of songs that I fell in love with, and could listen to over and over. There's just a really beautiful quality about Death Cab.
Almost Here - The Academy Is... ; Santi - The Academy Is...
While this is leaning more towards my-girlfriend-left-me-she's-a-biatch, it's still bearable and has the really great sound. I especially love the songs 'Slow Down' and 'We've Got a Big Mess on Our Hands'
You Forgot It In The People - Broken Social Scene
This band just has awesome sound, and have very catchy songs. This album is my favourite of theirs, and I like almost every song on it.
Turn On the Bright Lights - Interpol; Antics - Interpol
You might think the vocalist has a monotone voice, but it's not really, and it really works for their songs. Every one of their songs has a nice catchy head-bopping sound. They sort of remind me of Franz Ferdinand, who also have great stuff.
Hopes and Fears - Keane; Under The Iron Sea - Keane
This band sorrrt of reminds me of Coldplay (who are also so awesome). Keane's songs can be so heart breakingly emotional (not the girlfriend thing again); and can also be very catchy and makes you want dance.
In The City - Kevin Rudolf
Um, ridiculously good album. His songs are so sexy and have great riffs, I don't even know. Really great to work out to though.
Other bands I won't go into because I'm rambling: Coldplay, The Killers, Lostprophets (their earlier stuff), Maroon 5, Muse, Pinback, Straylight Run, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Strokes, The Fray, 30 Seconds to Mars, Franz Ferdinand.
