"A great introduction to a fantastically original and innovative artist. 'Bobby Brown goes down' is legendary."
Love Is Here

"Heart-wrenchingly beautiful stuff. If you're not moved by this the first time you listen to it, you have a heart of stone."
Origin Of Symmetry

"OK, so quite a few people have this: but it's a great great album. Tell your friends who don't have it. And go and see them live, they're wonderful."
...The Dandy Warhols Come Down
...The Dandy Warhols Come Down
"Not as acclaimed as 'Tales from Urban Bohemia', but in my opinion a superior album. Has a lovely feel to it, and 'Not if you were the last junkie on earth' is an unknown classic."
Machine Says Yes

"An interesting album: 'Hayling' is (quite rightly) getting the most airplay, but they're all good songs. Leaves a nice feeling on listening right through."
Spiritual Machines
Spiritual Machines
"The best band you've never heard of. A better Canadian export than Celine Dion (not hard really), Our Lady Peace are a thought-provoking rock/indie outfit."
Post Orgasmic Chill

"Another case of a album being passed over in favour of one by the same band despite being a better listen. This album is superior to any other Anansie album I've heard. No one tune stands out though."
The Music

"Flawed but brilliant. Depressing but uplifting. Probably the most paradoxical album I've ever heard - I love it. Get it, you won't regret it."
Live on Brighton Beach

"This got a bit of a slating on release from the dance press, which is a shame - for someone like me who isn't really clued-up about mixing etc. it's a great listen, and great fun."
Sultans of Swing: The Very Best of Dire Straits
Sultans of Swing: The Very Best of Dire Straits
"Fantastic. Dire Straits will go down as one of the most influential bands of the 70s/80s, and this is a perfect showcase of how great they really were."
Greatest Hits

"Another massively influential band of the 70s/80s was Slade - as witness Oasis's note-for-note cover of 'Cum on Feel the Noize' in the mid-90s. Indeed, Oasis is the best comparison in modern bands."
The Contino Sessions
The Contino Sessions
"A curious album, moving from soaring guitar tunes to grungy/dance cross-over tracks. A good album, if perhaps better after a few listens."
Since I Left You
Since I Left You
"Weird, weird, weird. Also, great, great, great. Samples everywhere, which leads to an interesting album. I saw these at Creamfields a couple of years ago, and they were awesome."
The Cream Of Clapton
The Cream Of Clapton
"It's easy to forget what an eclectic artist Eric Clapton was; this greatest hits compilation reminds you of what a versatile man he was. I must admit that I'm not so keen on his singing though...:S."
At The River

"OK, so this is a single. But it's quite possibly the most chilled-out, relaxing single I've ever been fortunate enough to buy."
The Battle Of Los Angeles

"The best RATM album. An amazingly powerful message delivered in scorching style. Turn this one all the way up to 11!"
