Aled Jones & Russell Watson, Back in Harmony – Painful UK MOR blah – MUST TO AVOID
Björk, The Knife & Fever Ray – Country Creatures – Bjork at the Shed earlier this year was so great (here) that she can do no wrong in my eyes.

Gang Starr, One of the Best Yet – Guru died in 2010, though the two songs I’ve heard off Best Yet featured unreleased raps and they were both excellent.

Hootie & The Blowfish, Imperfect Circle – They’re back…

TR/ST, The Destroyer
Ty Segall, Pig Man Lives Volume 1 – Demos? Really? Does everybody have to listen to everything he records?
