Just 15 Damn Fine Albums

"Early electronic music from Sheffields fine WARP Label. Great place to start if you're a little put off by the electronic anoraks, put this on and let it take you to another dimension!"
Conscience

"The Beloved made great music, ok their last album was rubbish, but this is a masterclass in feel good, blissed out pop with an ecological conscience, hence the title!"
Grace

"I'm sure by now everybody knows the Buckley family story, still if one more person buys this lp from my say so its worth mentioning. Check out his old man too, try "Greetings from LA"."
No More Shall We Part
No More Shall We Part
"Cave is the modern day Dylan, this lp shows his poetry at its best and most arcane. Love, menace, religion, illness and compulsive furniture moving are all issues taken in by this lp's broad scope"
Blood on the Tracks

"Can't talk about the modern day Dylan without including this. Quite simply his best, even Dylan haters will love this, never has the break up of a marriage and its reconciliation been so beautiful"
Bryter Layter

"ALL of Drakes 3 lp's are well worth your hard earned, but if you're unsure start here. Strings, unbelievably fluid but complex guitar lines and a haunted voice, stunning."
Amorica

"More famous for its infamous cover, however the music herein is powerful stuff in its own right. Blues sung from the heart too home cooked music, buy for "descending" alone, my fave song of all time.."
Endtroducing.....

"THE most creative lp of the last decade hands down, so many samples most are STILL uncleared. Shadow's imagination uses film scores, ad jingles, lost classics to build a haunting and memorable lp"

"The new David Gray apparently, no come back. Probably one of the least fair comparisons of all time, this guy is the real deal, heartwreching stuff, see him live before he retires,he is threatening to"
No Protection

"Often overlook for blue lines, this remix affair brims with innovation and quiet menace. The songs hacked to be unrecognisable in most cases, the Mad Prof creates mayhem with the Bristol crews beats"
Used Songs (1973-1980)
Used Songs (1973-1980)
"Yes its a best of but sod it, Tom's been around for ages & has tons of lp's. This is where to start if you like you songs soaked in bourbon, late at night, post break up, after too many ciggies"
Astral Weeks
Astral Weeks
"Morrison never bettered his debut, sure Moondance is close but the sheer intensity, mysticism and joy in these tracks wins through every time. If you think Van Morrison=Brown Eyed Girl, get this"
Life's Rich Pageant
Life's Rich Pageant
"THIS is REM's masterpiece, Cuyahoga alone is worth the cost ofthe album, that it is surrounded with some of the greatest guitar music of the 80's doesn't hurt either"
Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space
Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space
"J. Spaceman, what a trip he is on, thankfully you can join him on his tortured journey and press the off button at any time, alas he can not. He goes through this hell so you dont have to, mindblowing"
Mercury

"If you thought brooding indie, with killer songs begins with doves and ends with elbow, try these guys, soaring songs, a hail of guitars and an emotion not felt since the heady days of the Bends!"
