Ian Brown
The Greatest

The Best of Ian Brown. Actually not as bad as you might think as Brown has come up with the odd classic during his solo years in particular Corpses In Their Mouths and F.E.A.R. His solo work is a lot more eclectic than that of his main band the Stone Roses with reggae, dub and electronica influences infusing his baggy laid back pop.

James Blake
James Blake

James Blake unleashed his eponymous debut album back in 2011. Sound wise, a door had been kicked down by The xx, which made the transition to success easier for Blake. It was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize that year only to beaten to the top prize by PJ Harvey's Let England Shake. Includes the singles Limit To Your Love and The Wilhelm Scream.

Portishead
Portishead

Essential Bristolian soundtracky trip-hoppers second LP from back in 1997.  This is the one that eschewed their debut's occasional pop moves and delved deep into sample-delica and disturbing textures. It's an intimate and occasionally frightening listen full of regret and pathos between the grooves.  
  • Vinyl Double LP (5715099)

Portishead
Third

Portishead have kept a low profile in the nine years since Third was released. Will they ever release another album? If not, the savage trip-hop trailblazers certainly ended with something special. Reinterpreting all sorts from krautrock to folk song, the album’s menacing unease still haunts today. No wonder an entire town was named after them!

R.E.M.
Life's Rich Pageant

New R.E.M. reissues are afoot, getting some of that early I.R.S. Records material back into circulation. Life’s Rich Pageant was the band’s fourth album, first released in 1986, when Stipe and co. were still young, hungry and indie. Includes their cover of The Clique’s song ‘Superman’. Reissued by Universal.

Sonic Youth
Murray Street

'Murray Street' is the go to album for a 2000s era Sonic Youth record. Here the alternative rock legends balance their melodic ear with their formless tendencies. Avant-rock staple Jim O'Rourke joined the band as their official fifth member, adding twinkling electronics and sprawling textures to their sound.

Sonic Youth
Rather Ripped

And yea, verily, ‘twas a rather ripped time in the kingdom. ‘Rather Ripped’ is regarded by many as Sonic Youth's late-period masterpiece. First released in 2006, this was the group’s first record without Jim O'Rourke since he’d joined the band in the late-90s. Shrinking to a four-piece allowed Sonic Youth to refocus their sound, and the result is an album of taut, grungey alternativa that can stand up to the likes of ‘Daydream Nation’, ‘Goo’ and ‘Dirty’.

Stereophonics

On their fifth album Language, Sex, Violence, Other? Stereophonics returned to their rockier sound, some people even regard it as a return to form, after a couple of more acoustic led albums. It was the first with new drummer Javier Wayler and features the number one hit Dakota along with Superman, Rewind and Devil.

The Chemical Brothers
Push The Button

Come on then. What are you waiting for? Push it! PUSH IT! PUSH THE BUTTON! … Ahem. Sorry about that. This album just gets me very excited, you see. ‘Push The Button’ is one of the funnest, freakiest Chemical Brothers LPs - no mean feat when you consider the competition. The way it hammers the duo's Big Beat sound into a series of rubbery dance-pop numbers will please anyone who had enjoyed Basement Jaxx’s ‘Rooty’ and Mylo’s ‘Destroy Rock & Roll’ in the years leading up to ‘Push The Button’s 2005 release. This record also paved the way for the emergence of Calvin Harris a short way down the line. Contains some of their biggest hits - ‘The Boxer’, ‘Believe’, and especially ‘Galvanize’ - and features (among others) Q-Tip, Kele Okereke and Tim Burgess.

The Chemical Brothers
Dig Your Own Hole

Must be nice being one of The Chemical Brothers. Twiddle a few knobs, tinkle some keys, slappa the bass, job’s a good’un. This ethos was in full effect on the duo’s 1997 album ‘Dig Your Own Hole’. Rightly regarded as one of Big Beat’s seminal tomes (see also: ‘You’ve Come A Long Way Baby’; ‘The Fat Of The Land’; ‘Remedy’), this LP remains a blueprint for how to fuse psychedelic production, club heft and pop nouse. ‘Dig Your Own Hole’ is the one with ‘Block Rockin’ Beats’ and the Noel Gallagher-featuring ‘Setting Sun’ on it.

The Chemical Brothers
Further

If you don’t know if, Further is the 2010 album of The Chemical Brothers, and it's kind of their shoegaze album. It also might be their best album of recent years, with the usual focus on big guest collaborations jettisoned in favour of an epic tangle of ecstatic electronic beats and textures. A full psychedelic trip without losing the big club power. Vinyl reissue.

Seventeen Seconds

Seventeen Seconds was the second album by the Cure originally released in 1980. It was too bleak for bassist Michael Dempsey who left after hearing Robert Smith's demos. Smith went his own merry/miserable way in the end and the album is a fine example of their spindly proto-goth. It contains one of their finest moments in menacing single A Forest which exemplifies the dark nature of the material on the album.

The Cure
The Top

Universal continue in their valiant efforts to gradually reissue the whole hefty catalogue of The Cure to vinyl. The Top is their fifth album, first released in 1984. It’s an unusual entry in The Cure discography, recorded with an experimental attitude that took in psychedelia, Spanish guitar, Middle-Eastern sounds and even a little metal.

Sound Affects

Sound Affects is widely thought of by critics, and Paul Weller himself, as the best record by The Jam. Their fifth album, it was originally released towards the end of 1980. It turned out to be their penultimate release and featured the singles That’s Entertainment and the Taxman-aping Start! The latter was the band's second no.1 hit.

O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Yee - and we cannot stress this enough - haw. The music for the 2000 Coen Brothers flick ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’ has rightly been celebrated as one of the great soundtracks of modern cinema. Indeed, there is an argument that the enduring popularity of this collection of bluegrass, hillbilly, blues and early country music has come to outstrip the film itself. Now available on double-vinyl, ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’ contains hits like ‘He's In The Jailhouse Now’, ‘I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow’ (both The Soggy Bottom Boys) and ‘You Are My Sunshine’ (Norman Blake), and Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss and Gillian Welch are among the featured artists.
