Elbow - CD

Elbow c.d`s are growers. Seldom Seen Kid took a while and will so this one - but as `m listening to B.A.R.B now for about the 5th time, I can hear their amazingly beautiful, exhurberant songs - with lyrics from one of the best writers around Guy Garvey.Embrace Elbow , they are such a treasure., we are lucky to have them. A bunch of musicians who work hard , and make wonderful music, and The Night will always win - is one of the most beautiful songs of the year . Gorgeous stuff. Well done lads and thankyou.
I Speak Because I Can (Ecopack)
Laura Marling - CD

With the greatest respect to all the other 11 Mercury Price 2010 nominations - I`d be surpised it their c.d`s are better than this collection of 10 stunning songs , beautifully sung and interpreted , lyrics of such depth , and melodies which move and embrace you. What an album and what an artiste - she surely must be the Mercury Price first folk winner .Good Luck Laura you deserve it .
Fly Yellow Moon
Fyfe Dangerfield (Guillemots) - CD

Fyfe , the old romantic has delivered an absolute delight of a solo c.d. Beautiful , gentle songs on the whole , and generally less exuberant than the Gulliemot songs. The single 'She Needs Me' with it`s E.L.O influences is a stonking track that is making my grey winter so much more bearable. Please buy in abundance.He`s a lovely guy ( met him after a gig in Birmingham once ) and he`s such a fresh and original talent .All the best with this one Fyfe.
Joanna Newsom - CD

Don`t expect an easy listen with this album. It`s possibly one of the best albums ever made - but you probably won`t enjoy it straight away. Joanne Newsome has an amazingly beautiful , childlike , painful and entrancing voice all in one !! The songs are long , but beautifully constructed , and the more you listen the more you`ll hear each time . Poetic , sublime - it seeps into your soul - and will not let go...You need to be willing to go on a long journey with this album. It will be well worth it - as it`s one of the most beautiful albums ever made. She`s totally unique - and I know the more you listen to this album the richer the experience will be - and I`m in for the long long listen. If you have not heard of Joanna Newsome before and want an album really unlike anything else out there -and are ready for a challenge - then you won`t be dissapointed.This album is for life not just now.
Back To Black
Amy Winehouse - CD

In response to the 1 star review below. What tat that is . How many times have they listened to it ?. Anyone with taste can hear that the c.d is special and will be in top album lists in years to come . Rehab is one of the best pop songs of the last 5 years. All the songs on this C.D - are superb , with back to black , love is a losing game ,wake up alone , you know I`m no good ,confirming her status as a excellent song writer , as well as a world class singer. Despite the 60`s feel , it has a modern edge with witty and frank lyrics - not for the faint hearted or middle aged . She should have won the Mercury - and so deserves all the success the album is bringing her. This is music made for music lovers, and it doesn't get much better than this.
