Alright, alright...young people today
If you are calling me a young person , you can take as much time as you like
Hopefully not. Much as I love them this year's isn't their best and there's a bunch of records more deserving.
10 - Forest Swords - Compassion
Unfolding like a journey through a bustling soundscape of found sounds, instrumental loops and post-dubstep production, tis dazzling and evocative.
Mogwai aren't number 1. They might scrape top 5.
9 - Mogwai - Every Country's Son
Oh no they're not! It's a Mogwai album, we know what to expect. Except this time, they sound kinda happy.
or not even that.
8 - Thee Oh Sees - Orc
Oooh, my #1 might be in the top 5. Stetson too
7 - Colin Stetson - All This I Do For Glory
Experimental saxophonist Colin returns with a new album that doesn't exactly break new ground. But when the ground is that fertile, why would you?
Shame, deserved a top five position. Still pretty good
6 - Sleaford Mods - English Tapas
The Sleafords can't possibly mantain there acerbic cutting edge on a ninth (ninth!) album, can they? Hell, yes.
He manages to make his sax sound like a Rob Hood synth line, which makes him awesome in my book
Hannah Peel for number 1!
Well I'd be surprised if she didn't make the top 25. No Richard Dawson yet either.
5 - Slowdive - Slowdive
Shoegaze is back. And it could be better than ever.
I know, I expected it to be Number 1 as well
Bah, really? Nostalgia triumphing common sense. (at Slowdive)
4 - Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs - Feed the Rats
A Cro-Magnon bludgeoning of guttural howls and relentless metal-against-granite riffs, swelling and falling like universes colliding. It's quite noisy.
Okay, NOW you can make guesses as to the Top Three.
I've got Peel & Dawson in the top 3, who else is there?
3. Gnod, 2. Peel, 1. Dawson is my guess.
King Krule or Actress, c'mon!
seems unlikely, I don't think they made the list.
Alfie Boe and Michael Ball must be in with a shout
Laura Cannell? She's not appeared so far.
Aldous Harding maybe?
Not that godawful Arca album
I voted for her.
not seen much noise about it on here. Again, not on the list.
