December 20, 2017



Yep, this is a wonderful album and stuffed with great songs. Up there in my top 3 of the year (ok, I don't actually draw up such lists Alistair but...if I did). And so pleased/vindicated/overjoyed that 2017 saw yet another MG's album.


Cheers Rob. Intrigued as to what else would be in your top three. Busy chap is John D - a second novel (ace, of course) published this year too.


well, it's impossible to 'rank' some albums which are 'up there' but here goes (and it is a bit of a mixture).I've loved (ok, not top 3..): Grizzly bear/Painted ruins; ; Aldous Harding/Party; Gaby Hernandez/Spirit Reflection;Ambrose Akinmusire/A rift in decorum;Kendrick lamar/Damn;Sampha/Process; Thundercat/Drunk.
been a bit diaspponted by new albums by Beck; Dirty projectors;Fleet Foxes (samaold same old); Matthew E White.
Contented with St Vincent's new one; Wand/Plum; Rhiannon Giddens/Freedom Highway; waron Drugs...and loads of jazz (where our Venn diagrams don't overlap!)
All in all it's been a pretty good year musically and the kids continue to revile what they call Dadmusic.But I keep trying!
Season's greetings and all that- and thanks for a really enjoyable advent selection
