Here is a true rarity, a better album chart than the single chart. Headed by the great Sam Smith and followed by Coldplay’s best album to date, Paolo is quite good, Paolma is alright and Pharrell, eaton and London Grammar maintain the quality.
What does it mean when the leftover scraps fallen off Michael Jackson’s dinner tape and tossed into a stew with roadkill is the # 1 album in the UK. It means better the leftover scraps you know than the warmed over TV dinners you don’t know.
Anastacia has been out of the pure dance pop business for nearly six years battling breast cancer and now she is back and she still irritates the hell out of me, it’s the voice… well, the voice and the songs .
Embrace, a post Britpop band in the 1990s, may be better than I think but the blurb calling em out as a latter day Oasis is very silly, now a latter day Travis maybe. And wait, quick head count, seven of these acts could be, nominally at least , be called rock and roll. Those English are crazy.
Paolo Nutini is the male Amy Winehouse without the US breakthrough, though this excellent retro soul album should do the trick for him. Not sure when it is released Stateside but it is a goodie.
Much better than the singles collection, elbow is growing on me and growing on me. The band broke through a couple of years but never really made it all the way for me till now. Indeed, qute the opposite. But I went back to some of their earlier material and it may have been my ears letting me down. Whatever, this is definitely a keep.
