"I can't get enough of this album.  It's young, sassy, fun, a bit cheesy, but dirty enough to keep it edgy, and is produced really well."
Saints & Sinners

"I could really do without the last 5 songs on this album, but the 1st 9 are so great that I still listen to this regularly after almost 3 years since it was released."

"How I love this man.  I enjoy all of his albums but this is the 1st and in my opinion, the best.  It's cheeky and raw with the Brit Pop/Oasis feel, but still establishing his own sound."
Where We Belong

"Oh, guilty pleasures!  I'm usually not a fan of the slow jam boyband, but Ronan Keating just has the sexiest voice and this whole album is boyband brilliance."

"Everyone seems to think Erasure died after 1988.  They have been consistently making fantastic albums, this being their most recent original material.  Synthesized and melodic perfection."
Lickin' On Both Sides

"Love those girlbands.  Mis-Teeq is a good intro to the UK Garage scene.  Sharp fast beats and a lot of sass."
Original Pirate Material

"Let's delve a little bit deeper into UK Garage.  Undeniable British, really raw.  It's rap unlike anything you've ever heard in the U.S."

"Allright, Steps are the TRUEST guilty pleasure.  I mean, SO cheesy, but SO fun and great and I learned all their dance moves."
Light Years

"Did you love her album Fever?  Try her previous album, just as great but a bit more camp."
Modern Life Is Rubbish

"Blur blows me away with every album.  I also recommend their Best of, but this album is such a social commentary and musically amazing."
Different Class

"Energetic, angry, hilarious, and a bit pathetic, A Different Class is one of my favourite albums of all time."

"Sophie has a great raspy voice teamed up with a retro 80's dance sound.  She's just fabulous."
