Todd Rundgren - A Wizard, A True Star from 1973. This is so diverse and creative that it just never gets old. Soul covers, electronica, sound effects, metal, anthemic ballads all on one album. I’ve played this once a month since I first got it when I was 13. Sharon Van Etten’s - Remind Me Tomorrow from last year. Atmospheric, well-produced and stunning songs from start to finish. The use of synths has really enhanced her.

I’ve picked out these two albums, a classic in Appetite For Destruction from GnR, and an Irish masterclass in #3 from The Script. Guns n Roses went down in history with Sweet Child O’ Mine and Paradise City the Rockband set the standards high, producing anthem after anthem. The script, on the other hand, ply their trade in a more diverse fashion, going from almost rock, through pop and hip hop, with even an occasional country feel. This diversity is shown on this album across each track. The album also features arguably one of the best tracks produced in Hall Of Fame.

Nadia Reid - Out of my province. March 2020. Nadia' 3rd album & a move away from her folk/indie folk roots. The usual acoustic-driven, stripped-back sound is replaced with a lusher more orchestrated offering including synths, strings & horns. The song writing is more mature, with an emotional depth & her vocal delivery is outstanding. Alexander 'Skip' Spense - Oar. 1969. In the Uk we had Syd Barrett, the US had Skip Spense, both psychedelic poster boys who burned brightly & burned out just as quickly. Skip's music has a solitary feel to it with some of the most beautiful psyche melodies I've heard. The album has a dark & haunting quality to it that never disappoints.

Bowie LOW – what an album to isolate with, the absolute ultimate Bowie classic, minimalism layered with moog and the occasional vocal. I drew something awful on it……. And what a surprise Morrissey delivered with his total belter of a new album ‘I Am Not A Dog On A Chain’ – gotta be the finest LP from SPM since Your Arsenal, and probably the best new release of the year so far!! The whole LP deserves unbiased exploration, but if you want a teaser just check out Bobby Don’t Think You Know? Awesome!!
