After tracking down a song used on an advert I'm currently going through Santogold's album track by track on youtube. Would probably be one of my choices if I wasn't an old fogey and let all the new music pass me by.

I'd agree with that. I saw her at a festival in Manchester over the summer and she was sublime. The album is very good too, I just don't own a copy and rely on listening to my housemate's instead.

Oh, absolutely. Gloomy and at some points terrifying. A difficult album certainly, but a rewarding experience to listen to.

I don't consider wanting to slit my wrists much of a reward. wink.gif But then I've never really seen the appeal of Portishead, bar the odd one or two tracks.

Incidentally, if you like gloomy and terrifying, give Scott Walker's The Drift a listen. And Tilt too, if you're a glutton for punishment.

I'd second Lykke Li, it's a great little album and has been overlooked by too many people. Brilliant stuff.

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks that.

Aside from Decode (Paramore), Sex on Fire (Kings of Leon) and Human (The Killers), I really am at a loss when it comes to thinking of any songs or albums that came out this year that I actually liked.

Even though it's only the third album from this year that I've bought, Dig!!! Lazarus, Dig!!! would definitely make it into a theoretical top 10 for me. Absolutely superb dark and dirty rock with the sophistication and wit of the best of Cave's work. It's staggering that they can still be this good and swaggering on their 14th studio album.

i'll add some love for 'lykke li'...

the album is rather ace, she was fab live and 'el perro del mar' was excellent in support...



hardly bought anything this year.

i've been rediscovering my vinyl and mainly listening to tappa zuke, price fari, mikey dread, king tubby, jah stitch and a load of seventies dub. ace.

then, there's been the reissue of jeri southern's 'southern breeze' album, wanter wanderlay's 'rain forest', a bunch of bossa nova stuff.

gig highlights were my bloody valentine, public enemy, action beat, rampant rabbit, a place to bury strangers, oxes, putting on the ritz, felix cubin, quack quack, nissenen mondai, two minute noodles and a load of others who i can't remember.

I think my song of the year might be 'On a day like this'.

Because I am soppy and I really like the phrase, "holy cow".

My Top 10 albums:

1) O Soundtrack My Heart - Pivot
2) Seventh Tree - Goldfrapp
3) Third - Portishead
4) Santogold - Santogold
5) We Ate The Machine - Polysics
6) Oracular Spectacular - MGMT
7) Superabundance - Young Knives
8) Consolers of the Lonely - The Raconteurs
9) The Seldom Seen Kid - Elbow
10) Only By The Night - Kings of Leon

A few extra singles I liked...American Boy - Estelle, The Promise - Girls Aloud (it made me appreciate pop again, so that's gotta be something), Another Way To Die - Jack White & Alicia Keys (because I'm the only one who thinks it's the best Bond song since Nobody Does It Better)...

And best gigs: YMO and Blade Runner at Royal Festival Hall, Pivot and Goldfrapp at Glastonbury, Cornelius at Shepherd's Bush Empire, Soil & "Pimp" Sessions at the Roundhouse...

I've only just realised that you mean ''One Day Like This''. My mind is slow of late.

1) O Soundtrack My Heart - Pivot

I was so very close to purchasing that recently, but didn't know whether it was going to prove to be one of those utter disappointments despite all the great reviews.

I may well chance a little monetary gamble on it now.
