Half The World Away – Aurora – I prefer it to the Oasis original, basically because the Sedish chanteuse sings it better than Noel ever did: she is very light on her feet yet filled with a yearning dreamioness. Can’t wait to see the John Lewis commercial – B+

This Time – Aswell Ingrosso – Two thirds of Swedish House Mafia, and this is better than what passes for EDM most of the time, better than the EDM MOR sound of bad songs with bad beats, this is an electronic head butt – B+

Be Somebody – Boyce Avenue – Mainstream alt rockers write a bad song with an anthemic chorus that fails to signify – C-

Adventure Of A Lifetime – Coldplay – I admit to preferring dreary black and white Coldplay to this disco rocker, but even so, it isn’t bad at all: it swings well, and has none of the face pulling of U2 circa Zooropa., while doing just about every thing a lead single should do – B+

Switch Up – R. Kelly, Lil Wayne, Jeremih – State of the art hip hop r&b, without actually being vaguely good. What ever happened to R. Kelly? When did he get his ass kicked by Chris Brown on soul songs? The man needs to stop messing around an write a good song – C-

Can’t Get Enough Of Myself (feat B.C.) – Santigold – Undeniable neo-soul while being much much weirder: the whistles and toots on the background give it a strange childlike quality and the singers success Michael Jackson when he ws still pre-teen. not the voice. The tempo and timing – A-

Remember Me – Steve Angello, The Presets – The third Swedish House Mafia hits the mainstream on his butt, this is the old new – C-
