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 son...view item »


The Beatles
Let It Be

This may not be The Beatles greatest recording moment, but it holds up very well despite all the bashing its gotten over the years. Started January 1969 as Get Back, the original idea was to record an album aux natural with as little of the production values that has graced their latter albums (Sgt Pepper, MMT, The White Album). Although many cr...view item »


Talk Talk
Spirit Of Eden

Fashioned from innumerable improv sessions, 1988’s Spirit of Eden is where Talk Talk took an experimental turn and, in so doing, secured the legacy that lives on in bands such as Zelienople. Sprawled-out and unhurried song structures, a smattering of strange sound design, a wide instrumental palet...view item »


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'...view item »


The Beatles
The Beatles

Almost 50 years on and we’re still having pub debates as to what should have been on The White Album, or left off. Even if you find Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da grating, or Piggies overly cynical, would you really want it any other way? I’ll always argue that Revolution 9 is a roaring success that granted rock musicians the licence to get thei...view item »

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 b...view item »


Blur
The Great Escape

For their fourth outing, 1995's "The Great Escape," Blur wonderfully combine the successes of their previous two albums, "Modern Life is Rubbish" and "Parklife." This album is not so much a sequal to "Parklife" as a dark mirror of it. The tales of Londoners found in "Parklife" have been replaced by the twisted secret lives of suburban dwellers h...view item »


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...view item »


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 Smal...view item »


Blur
Blur

My favourite albums tend to be the ones where a successful band leaves behind their signature sound and ventures into new realms that you wouldn't have expected them to and this is no exception. That's not to say that Blur were always the indie pop meets music hall of 'Parklife' and 'The Great Escape', there was definitely evidence of them wanti...view item »


Blur
Think Tank

And to think, I almost dismissed this album. Heck, this being my second Blur album (yes, I'm so far behind the times, I can barely see straight), I was ready to dismiss them altogether. On first listen, "Ambulance" sounded dissonant and illogically-rooted, with no discernible melody whatsoever. "Crazy Beat" was a bland attempt at gettin' some ro...view item »


The Beatles
Yellow Submarine

Okay, okay it's not their best work, but that still means it's a masterpiece when it's by The Beatles. The main thing that brings this album down is the musical score of the animated movie... which comprises all of side 2. Focusing primarily on side 1 there are some brilliant tracks on 'Yellow Submarine'. First off you have the eponymous track w...view item »


Blur
Leisure

Blur's debut back in 1991 brought along a blend of psychedelic rock and heavy guitars not too far from the sound of The Stone Roses or The Smiths. Though not too welcome by critics, as being too much like shoegazing (a musical trend that was on its way out), in recording "Leisure", along with Charlatan's U.K. and a handful of other bands, they l...view item »


The Beatles
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

It is easy to argue that “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” is overrated, and it probably is. If you think that it was released in the same year as The Velvet Underground & Nico and “Forever Changes” by Love, they weren’t the only band breaking new ground by...view item »

The Beatles
A Hard Day's Night

Probably as I because I wasn't born at the time that The Beatles were making records, I tend prefer the albums from Rubber Soul onwards. "A Hard Days Night" does have flashes of their brilliance though and at least half of this album is brilliant. "If I Fell", "And I Love Her", "Anytime At All" and "Things We Said Today" are all great. The tracks I...view item »


The Libertines
Anthems For Doomed Youth

So, The Libertines actually made a new album to accompany that big-money live reunion. Anthems For Doomed Youth is that album, approaching their much loved sound from an older, possibly wiser position. An interesting prospect considering the inherently youthful nature of the band’s earlier work… Twelve trac...view item »

Slaves
Are You Satisfied (bonus tracks)

Naturally it's Tunbridge Wells that produced the world's worst band, and now Slaves get to enter the wonderful world of RSD with a deluxe edition of 'Are You Satisfied', chock full of bonus tracks that beg the question: "why make 31 flavors when you can't get vanilla right?".

The ultimate collection for the Blur fan.

Now cheaper, it will still set you back but look what you get for your brass....view item »

The Beatles
Magical Mystery Tour

I always used to think that Magical Mystery Tour was one of the lesser Beatles albums, but it actually contains some of their best and most interesting songs. Forgetting the loose 'Magical Mystery Tour' premise of the title track, when you dig into the album you find gem after gem; "The Fool on the Hill" and "Penny Lane" are among McCartney's caree...view item »


The Beatles
Past Masters

If you wanted to introduce anyone to The Beatles this would be the best place to start. Past Masters obliterates the need for any Beatles compilation albums. Chronicling the bands entire singles and B-sides releases from “Love Me Do” to “Let it Be”, Past Master’s has an extensive track ...view item »


Smashing Pumpkins
Pisces Iscariot

Not much else needs to be said. If you're a Pumpkins fan, you won't want to be without it. Of course, if you really are a Pumpkins fan, you already do have it. But, by the subtle chance that you fall into the former, you've got my recommendation, to say the least. This collection of non-album tracks is quite diverse as it explores both the most ...view item »

Blur
Under The Westway

The Beach Boys
That's Why God Made The Radio

Blur
The Vinyl Box

It's really hard to recommend this enormous collection to many people. Most hardcore fans will probably only be interested in the four discs of rarities, the vinyl single of "Superman", and the hardback book; for this content, 21 isn't worth the price-point. However, if you are a Blur fan who doesn't happen to own any of their albums, the price ...view item »

Morrissey
Viva Hate (Special Edition)

You either like Morrissey or you don't. There's such a thin grey line it may as well be ignored. The Smiths' frontman has that voice that you just want to listen to more and more. Mr. Gloom N. Doom doesn't miss a beat. He's the only man, or artist for that matter, that I know of that could sing an obituary in a poppy voice. Conversely, he could ...view item »

The Beach Boys
The SMiLE Sessions

The greatest album never made? A triumph of mythmaking over achievement? 'Smile' is many things but one thing it isn't and never will be is a coherent album. For one thing Wilson's cut and paste methods were waaaay ahead of the technology available to him at the time and it's just impossible ...view item »

Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi
Season's Trees / The Rose With The Broken Neck

I've been curious about this collaboration ever since the LP dropped but I couldn't justify splashing out for the somewhat pricey LP so this is my first go on these songs. On the A we've got Season's Trees, with a sultry vocal provided by the Norah Jones. I'm always a bit wary about these big hotshot singers getting in on these kind of collabora...view item »

Morrissey
Glamorous Glue / Treat Me Like A Human Being

Another Morrissey compilation appears. Why? Oh he's touring soon. More money for the Mozzster.... fantastic. Is this a new song? No its an old one but the new and old ones tend to sound the same so it doesn't really matter. Its a half baked glam stomp. Its backed with what EMI probably hope is what will sell this - an unreleased demo rescued fro...view item »

OK Computer

OK Computer is Radiohead's third album. Originally released in 1997, following on from their second LP, The Bends, was always going to be a tall order, but they did it all right! A '90s classic that is still recognised by millennials for songs such as 'Paranoid Android', 'Karma Police' and 'Airba...view item »

Brian Eno
Ambient 1: Music For Airports

Groundbreaking stuff here from Brian Eno. Ambient 1: Music For Airports was released in 1978 and marks the first time when the word ‘ambient’ was used in connection with this kind of music. Eno made the album by layering tape loops. His intention was to make a soundscape that would cut through anxiet...view item »

Brian Eno
Ambient 4: On Land

On Land is probably the hardest of all Eno discs to describe. It would be one thing if it was simply made with treated notes or tape loops, as with Discreet Music or the previous Ambient albums. It would be one thing if he was using minimal melodies meant to be ignored. On Land is all and none of those. It uses musical elements but isn't music; ...view item »

Next up the most over-rated band in the country, Hot Chip with 'One Pure Thought' Their occasional useful grasp of melody is so often marred by dreadful tinny production and an overwhelming sense of smugness.

One Life Stand

Are Hot Chip the worst band in the history of recorded music? Possibly. Somehow each release brings new levels of awfulness. This, their new album does nothing to buck that trend.
