MAX RICHTER - SLEEP

I like the Bill Fay one too. 'World Of Life' especially is a beautiful song. I like the Benjamin Clementine in patches and thought he was excellent on Jools Holland when he first appeared. I do find the album a bit patchy, however. A sort of 7/10 affair. The Beirut one is a bit dull in my opinion. The Adele one I forced myself to listen to 3 or 4 tracks and that was enough for me. Good voice and all that but she does nowt for me.
Kamasi Washington's was the best of the year by a country mile. The fact that it wasn't shortlisted means you're all bonkers :wink: Max Richter would have been in my top 3 overall though. Looking forward to getting the full, 8 hour version.
Adele comment :roflmao:

I gave Washington 7 points, best jazz album of the year & deserved a Grand Final spot :tup:

Richter, Fay & Clementine are all superb imo !

Beirut album is their worst album so far, they'll never better The Flying Club Cup album, I voted for it purely because i own it & didn't rate the other rock/indie nominations. Poor year for rock music !

In fairness, I don't have a problem with her at all. I appreciate she has a really good voice but by and large her music just leaves me a bit cold. Also, Mrs Durly played the previous album to death when it first came out.

In fairness to Mrs Durly, her taste is pretty good on the whole. When I first met her I was in awe of the fact that she had 5 Husker Du albums on vinyl.

I hadn't actually seen that before, it's brilliant! 20+ million albums sold on the back of getting dumped and being a stalker nut-job!! :lol:

McBusted now.........errr.......I believe.

Mrs Durly and I share a mutual loathing of Queen, which is to her immense credit and, in my world, far outweighs her liking Adele, who, as I say, doesn't offend me really.......I just don't find her very interesting.
