"This was crazily underrated, I miss Graham Coxen as much as everyone else but this album has too many sublime moments to ignore."

"I don't like country music but this transcends any labels, it's just good."
Rejoicing In The Hands (Of The Golden Empress)

"Fantastic, a little bit crazy, but that is what makes it so fresh, he does sound like Marc Bolan, and the guitar reminds me of Nick Drake but he's an original."

"Having to work with the general public gets you down, but this cheers you right back up again."

"People say Radiohead are depressing, to me endless R n B compilations are depressing. This is something you've never heard, I've heard it hundreds of times and I'm not getting bored."
Involver (Limited Edition)

"Stunning this is trance music, but don' t let that put you off, the way every song blends seamlessly into the next, is the opposite of soulwax, but just as ingenious."

"Interpol are the dark side of New York, they do sound like Joy Division, but with glamour."
The Everlasting Blink

"I know nothing about Bent and I don't want to. This sounds like memories of the best summers you've never had, very dreamy and somehow nostalgic. Give it a chance."

""Emotional landscapes" Bjork sings in one of her songs, and the music echos her lyrics. The autechre beats and the beautiful strings work perfectly, this is cold weather music."

"Buy it just for the cover. Its hard to describe how much I love this album, for quite a while I wanted 'life is sweet ' to be my funeral song. maybe it's a bit loud."

"I took this home and listened to it on my own, I was fed up with people at work saying "you haven't heard it?!" So I listened to the beginning of 'Mojo Pin' and it was like discovering lost treasure."

"I heard Hope Sandoval's voice on the chemical brother's song 'asleep from day' this whole album builds and improves on that, this is a hazy summer afternoon on CD."
Made To Love Magic

"I've heard some of Nick Drake's 'proper' stuff but it's aged too much for liking, this is some of the striped bare acoustic stuff, and I think it's brilliant."
Hello Nasty

"Ahhh the beasties, I love them they can do know wrong, about 80% of this is a party album but there are some fantastic little mellow moments as well. 'instant death' is one of my favourite ever songs."
Sunshine Hit Me

"They're from the Isle of Wight, which has apparently been stuck in the 60's since Jimi hendrix left. This album has so many influences that i'm too young to know about, but it's a lot of fun."
Hail To The Thief
Hail To The Thief
"It's taken me two years to like it, but now I love it. '2+2=5' is pure frustrated anger, 'sail to the moon' is sublime. It takes time, but listen to it very loudly, it erm... rocks."

"This is Hip Hop the way it should be, I can never play the whole album in the shop because someone always buys it halfway through. Another party album, try not to dance."

"Devendra Banhart is the guitarist, but this isn't as quirky as him, the emphasis is on pretty melodies and lovely songs, much better than keane."

"The sticker on the front says it best, if this doesn't get the party started you're at the wrong party. Destiny's Child's 'independant women' into '9 to 5' by Dolly Parton, Genius."

"This album is also very New york, majestic, strong, beautiful, angry, another of my favourite songs is 'horses in my dreams'"
