Morning all, it's been a long and somewhat bumpy journey, but we few, we happy few, have managed to prove what I've been saying all along. Music's not dead. We have 9 songs already picked and are about to find a 10th, and for the most part they've come from artists completely new to me. I've unearthed some gems, I've had questions answered about bands I've heard about but not looked into, and I have a few CDs I'm very tempted to buy. So thank you all, but let's get down to the business of awarding some points to three of this lot, by half 8 Friday morning.

Many thanks for keeping with this.

Resolution - Matt Corby
Carnival - The Family Rain
Dream Machine - Big Deal
It Starts & Ends With You - Suede
Machineries Of Joy - British Sea Power
Snowball - Dave McPherson
Mildred - Deaf Havana
Bad Kingdom - Moderat
Creatures - Sylver Tongue
Teeth - Cage the Elephant

Right, that's your lot and I'm delighted to say that a song I thought had no chance has actually won it! And that would be my nom, Cage the Elephant's 'Teeth'. I urge you all to check out their three albums, Cage The Elephant, Thank You Happy Birthday and the most recent, Melophobia. All three have a different sound to them but still stay true to what made them a good band in the first place. You might also want to try Perfect Confusion, the band they started off as, for some funky-bluesy awesomeness.

Thank you all for sticking with this, it's been a blast. I've had a thought for how to do 2014, around June I'll do five rounds for the first half of the year, and then in December do the second five, with a final voting thread for the winners. What do people think?

Thanks RAB. 11 worthy winners. I think your idea for 2014 is worth a go - it's all trial and error but hopefully stuff will be fresh in our minds.

Posted on 31 Jan 2014, 14:19:29 GMT
Well done RAB for winning the last round and the winners make for a good CD. Thanks for running the thread and I agree with your idea for 2014.

Thanks for doing this RAB. A "half time review" and then a "full time review" sounds like it could work for this year.
