Mr R Wainwright may well be the best singer-songwriter in the world at the moment. The first nine tracks on Want One stand up to anything ever written in pop. They are superb songs, particularly the epic Go Or Go Ahead. I am more of a rock music fan, but I just find these albums staggering. Thank you, Rufus, for opening my eyes to the wonder of great individual music.

What a return to form! After the disappointment that was 'Winning Days', Craig Nicholls and co had to try and find the kind of quality that made their debut 'Highly Evolved' such a highly acclaimed smash. 'Highly Evolved' combined real garage rock anthems with more slower acoustic guitar-led numbers, all to perfection. Well, I'm pleased to say 'Vision Valley' does the same. There are some awesome songs on this album, and the break that they've had between albums 2 and 3 was definitely worth it, if it was to come up with music as good as this. Well done, guys. A brilliant record that hopefully will be praised as one of the best of the year come December.

My favourite song on the album seems to change every day. Right now it's probably The Tourist. I used to consider The Tourist, Climbing Up The Walls and Exit Music too boring and slow. But after a few listens, they reveal themselves to be absolute masterpieces. It's still a staggering album. I wish I was musically-conscious when it was first… Read more
