I want to add that this year's big disappointment is Blur's 'Think Tank'. I don't really understand all the praise it gets, because it really is rubbish, especially when compared with '13'.

Some of mine:

Four Tet - Rounds
Rip Off Artist - Pet Sounds
Clue To Kalo - Come here When You Sleepwalk
Tes - Tes
Radiohead - Hail To The Theif

You are right about Mathew Herbert too, he is a genius. Thats how electronic music should be played, the die hard 'must have instruments to be music' brigade may gain more respect for the scene then!

One that seems to have slipped under everyone's radar is King Britt's 'Adventures In Lo-Fi'......

Said to myself that I wouldn't be drawn to this thread but I just can't resist a list!

Personal faves of the RR household for the year have been.....

Kraftwerk: Tour De France - Still trying to find something great about it but it's an album of the year simply because they bothered to release one. Hopefully there's more to come but I'm not holding my breath!

A Perfect Circle: Thirteenth Step - Maynard James Keenan's offshoot band from his regular gig with Tool. Liked it lots on first listen. Still in the player so must be good.

Dream Theater: Train Of Thought - I love this band and any new product is welcome. Dazzling musicianship and top production. Nice long, well thought out songs to boot as well. Brilliant.

Led Zeppelin: How The West Was Won - Genius. Nuff said.

Frank Zappa: Halloween (DVD-A) - Frank on top form with a crack band coupled with some biting sarcasm and top tunes. Great gig from 1978.

Radiohead: Hail To The Thief - Even for a person such as myself that cannot stand the hype surrounding this band I gotta admit this album stands out as one of the best releases of the year. Still determined, however, not to turn into a fanatic of the band!!

LFO: Sheath - What can you say? It's just marvellous. Top techno.

Pearl Jam: Lost Dogs - Finally! At last all of those wonderful B-sides released on one double album. How some of these managed to be left of the albums in favour of weaker album tracks is beyond me!

Primal Scream: Dirty Hits - OK, I know its a compilation but this compilation kicks the arse of a lot of new albums this year. I'm putting it in coz I can't put in 'Evil Heat' as that was released last year but I still wanted to mention it!

Well, that'll do for now!
Another day, another list <sigh>

Definitely the Nelly single - if we were voting for singles. Mind you, if we were voting for singles, that'd open up a whole load of new possibilities...

Hello again, sorry to interupt, but...

After much consultation with all of our writers, all of you and a few other odd bods and sods, we've got a "long-list". There's a few that I already think will definitely make the top ten due to the cross-the-board support they seem to have recieved but I 'd be interested in your thoughts to whittle this lot down to the final list:

Fourtet
The Kills
Zongamin
The White Stripes
Radiohead
Elbow
Manitoba
The Coral
Buck 65
Kings Of Leon
Goldfrapp
Bonobo
Amy Winehouse
Blur
King Geedorah
The Sleepy Jackson
The Rapture
Simple Kid
Outkast
The Strokes
Prefuse 73
Matthew Herbert
Magnet
Super Numari
Super Furry Animals
Matt Harding
Lamb
Calexico
Kid Koala

There's 30 here we're whittling down to a top 10 and 10 runners up so...

Can you all pick 3-5 that you really think should be on our list?

If you really thing something has been missed (I'm not perfect) , feel free to shout.

Thanks again for your input,

Matt

Singles wise, 'Laura' by scissor sisters is a fantastic pop song! Deserved to make the top 40 at least, but then again like all the best releases it did'nt!
