    Arcade Fire, Reflektor. Together with Vampire Weekend, totally in a class of their own.

    Can't believe the level of support for tepid shite like Suede and Johnny Marr's offerings.

    ( savages) Yeah, like The Horrors. 100% derivative. Nicely done, but ultimately boring and pointless.

    Well it's coming to the end of 2013 and my favourite album is

    [​IMG]

    I chose it because it was the one album that I enjoyed the most songs and that I've revisited it a few times this year. I think Bowie has musically developed since "Reality" and it has a good number of singles on it. Not every track is a classic, but it has enough amazing tracks to make this album a milestone in Bowie's career.

    Runners up are Suede - Bloodsports, as they have resurrected and saved their band name by actually making good music. They really needed a good album and fortunately this was a cracking reunion album and have made Suede great again.

    I liked this one a lot too. I didn't think it was as stunning as many critics made out, but it was just lovely to hear that voice again. Where Are We Now? was just gorgeous. It's my track of the year.

    Others...

    Push The Sky Away by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. This is the one I've listened to the most, so I suppose that makes it my favourite.

    Dream River by Bill Callahan

    Modern Vampires Of The City by Vampire Weekend

    AM by Arctic Monkeys

    Tomorrow's Harvest by Boards Of Canada

    Re-Mit by The Fall

    Bloodsports by Suede - It Starts & Ends With You is superb. Sounds like it fell off Coming Up.

    honorable mention to "Halcyon Days" by Ellie Goulding, something about her, I feel I am going to like her more as she continues to progress...
