Decent album after a three year absence from Plant, have to say it's more in the Rock genre category so I'm leaving it in that section Hector

Not bad but the Pixies do it soo much better, there's a Nirvana riff in there too...

Best album for me this year is the discovery of Alice Phoebe Lou's - Orbit. From 16 and would have won album of the year for me last year by a country mile...Alas I'm too late
ROOFE - 1-0 !!!

King Krule's album is a real grower, doubt it will suit the majority of tastes on here.

Love the jazzy/punk feel 8-)

Too late to get into the voting, but my brother sent me a copy of Robyn Hitchcock's latest album for Christmas, and I can only say I wish he had sent it to me in time to have nominated it in this poll. Freakin' fantastic. Here's a sample (play it loud):

My goodness..........where was my head this past week?

Another album that I should have nominated was the absolutely brilliant "Americana" by Ray Davies.

Enjoy this sample........
