The Beatles
Rubber Soul

Rubber Soul by The Beatles, released in 1965,  was the follow-up to Help! And, therefore, the second album of theirs to consist entirely of original material. By this time, the band had given up touring and were able to focus all of their energies on recording in the studio. The results are bloody marvelous.

The Beatles
Revolver

Revolver by The Beatles is regarded by many as their best album. It’s the second album they made after giving up playing live and the use of studio trickery really began to enhance their concise pop. Originally released in 1966, it’s fair to say that this changed the shape of everything that came after it and is still doing so. Remastered 180g audiophile vinyl on Parlophone.

The Beatles
Let It Be

The Beatles last hurrah was the long gestating 'Let It Be' album. Actually conceived as a project before the recording of their penultimate album Abbey Road, various inter band squabbles and the temporary departure of George Harrison meant that it wasn't finished by 1970 at which point Phil Spector had been drafted in to slather strings all over it. Not particularly valued on release, it has gained traction over the years most likely when listeners realised the sort of music the four members would make solo. 

The Beatles
Abbey Road

Abbey Road was the penultimate album by The Beatles. It’s predecessor, Let It Be, was all but finished before the recording of Abbey Road began, however, Abbey Road was released first. The album is notable for George Harrison’s songwriting coming to the fore, seven songs on side two that run into one another make up a suite of perfectly formed ditties and er….Maxwell’s Silver Hammer. A Classic.

Talk Talk
The Colour Of Spring

The Colour of Spring was the transition album between the old Talk Talk (sort of like a literate Duran Duran) and the new Talk Talk (jazz inflected post rock innovators). The Colour of Spring had elements of both containing chart-ready hits ('Life Is What You Make It', 'Living In Another World') but being much more organic in nature and innovative than their synth driven early work. Absolutely essential.

Blur
Modern Life Is Rubbish

Modern Life Is Rubbish announced Blur as a serious proposition. They carved out an identity, both musically and image-wise for themselves that moved away from the indie-by-numbers of their debut album, Leisure. It earned them comparisons of great Englishness previously characterised by The Kinks and Small Faces, thus kicking off the whole Britpop thing. Features the singles For Tomorrow and Chemical World.

The Beatles
Please Please Me

You know what, no. We won’t. We won’t please you, Beatles - no, we won’t. You’ve been asking for too long now boys, and sometimes you have to learn that you’re not going to get your own way all the time. Sorry John, Paul, George and Ringo, but we’re putting our foot down. Go off and please yourselves.

The Beatles
Help!

Welp, this is by The Beatles, so not much need for us to tell you what’s going on here (obviously). Help! is the one with, among other things, ‘You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away’ and ‘Help!’ (obviously) on it, and is the soundtrack to their 1965 film Help! (obviously). The songwriting is good (obviously), this new edition has been remastered (obviously) and Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr were the best band ever (obviously).

Brian Eno
Ambient 4: On Land

Brian Eno’s specifically-titled Ambient series of albums culminated in Ambient 4: On Land, a particularly dense and somewhat dark listen, miles away from the bright emptiness of Ambient 1. Jon Hassell, Daniel Lanois and Bill Laswell were involved in helping Eno achieve this (still) strange and evocative expanse. Virgin reissue.
