The Rolling Stones
The sound is very open and reflects the four track equipment they were using at the time. It's rawness and energy is very appealing. The lyrics on Mothers Little Helper are very apposite.

Initially I thought this album was just going to be a heavy rap album lacking in melody. However as the album progressed I was most impressed by some the deft handling of the songs. In particular I really enjoyed Cody ChestnuTT and Musiq- Break You Off. The verbal dexterity on the lyrics was most impressive.

The Real Thing
Faith No More
The album was OK. However it was riff bound and sounded like so many other bands.

A terrific album, worthy of winning the Mercury Prize. I really enjoyed the variety of styles represented on the CD.

Belle & Sebastian
To my mind one of the best Belle and Sebastian albums. The lyrics are wry, well observed and witty. Every time I listen to it I smile to myself, and even if I am feeling tired it always perks me up. The brass work on Losing It is terrific and really lifts the track. My favourite track is Expectations. It is sobering to think that the references to Debenhams are somewhat dated, how social trends evolve!
