No Quarter ~ Robert Plant
No Quarter ~ Robert Plant

I'm not being smug here, believe me this is class music. I recon even Mozart himself would have been Led Zep fan hearing this. Whilst the real Led Zep were amazing for sounding so sharp with just four men, here we are treated to a terrific backing of African and Eastern musicians. The reworking of Nobody's Fault But Mine and No Quarter sound much better than the originals. Not that it needs to be said, but Robert and Jimmy's talents are push to the maximum. With this and their work up until 1999 shows that Led Zeppelin could easily make a successful comeback. So come on Percy, see sense before you regret it rock needs you!

This is one Doctor Who that can be used to shut up those who slag the series of for dodgy visuals and wobbly sets, as the whole story is shot on location. It also features one of the classic "behind the sofa" scenes when Autons burst out of a shop window and massacre civilians. No other Doctor had such a powerful debut, there is no plodding and moves at a cracking pace. Jon Pertwee as usual shines though, a sad reminder of how much he is missed. No good DVD collection is complete without this.
Kid a ~ Radiohead
Kid a ~ Radiohead
Radiohead are by far the most inventive and creative band of the last ten years. Thorm York and co are light years ahead of Oasis, and have provided us something completely new every time. Kid A is no classic and is no where near as impressive as it's predecessors, but it is by far their most daring work. It's good to see a young band taking risks even if they are not entirely successful, it proves that they are not predictable. It takes two or three listens to get into Kid A but that Radiohead albums have always been like that, and they will never change in that respect. I didn't like OK Computer at first but it has now become one of my all-time favourites. Anther good thing about Kid A is… Read more
