Janelle Monae - CD
25 New from
I first noticed Ms Monae when she released her first ever EP, the science fiction themed "Metropolis: Suite I of IIII". Her interpretation of a robot protagonist who falls in love with a human created such an intrigue, I was instantly hooked on her unique style and stunning voice. With "the ArchAndroid" she continues her characters journey with incredibly cinematic results. Gliding smoothly between classical interludes ('Suites II & III Overtunes'), swooningly mystical ballads ('Sir Greendown', 'Oh Maker'), funky dance numbers ('Tightrope', 'Faster') and even moments of psychedelic euphoria ('Mushrooms & Roses', 'Make The Bus'), the album becomes one of the most engaging albums in recent years. Astoundingly well constructed, "The ArchAndroid" proves an amazing future is ahead for Ms Monae (as im sure she already knows ;). A definate one for purchase.
Duffy - CD

Duffy returns with a different, altogether more modern sound from that of Rockferry, so for those who simply enjoy Duffy for her unique and beautiful voice, this album is perfect. Working with american soul band The Roots and Albert Hammond on all of the album, highlights include opener My Boy, first single Well, Well, Well, the elegant Keeping My Baby and the tender title track, Endlessly. Throughly enjoyed.

Being a fan of Joe Wrights first feature film Pride & Prejudice i had high expectations about seeing this film and i am beyond happy to say that his second feature has well and truly suppassed his first.
Atonement is a truly breathtaking piece of modern cinema. With brilliant performances from Keira Knightley and James McAvoy in the leading roles, the two actors seem to have perhaps the most mesmerising chemistry i've seen two young lead actors have in a long time. Also the film features a strong supporting cast featuring fantastic turns from Vanessa Redgrave, Romola Garai and a true star to watch in the shape of Saoirse Ronan.
A heart breaking love story and an equally harrowing war film, Atonement is without doubt one of the best British films of modern time. A definate must see.
