As requested here is a quick run down of many of the albums I have procurred before and since Christmas with a quick review of under 15 words. I'm not naming where I got them (I could) but I will mention the price. I also shalln't talk about all of them because I've only so much time in the world. So In no particular order:

The Kinks: The Kinks - Cooler than a choc ice in the antartic
The Kinks: Kontroversy - not as good as the previous one but still pretty damn cool
Both bought together for £3
The B-52's: Good Stuff - Excellent fun, a much underatted band. £1
The B-52's: Cosmic Thing - Stupid mostly, but some surprisingly beautiful songs too, again excellent £3.50
Brian Wilson: Smile -Weird, but fun £3
Supergrass: Road To Rouen - Been threatening to go melodic for a while, it's worked well for them. Copied
Ladytron: The Witching Hour - Some strong stuff but better songs on Light & Magic - Copied
Talking Heads: Speaking in Tongues - Good but songs are performed better live on Stop Making Sense- £3.50
Paul Simon: You're The One: It's got a good sound but hardly his strongest material £1
Led Zeppelin: IV - It's got Black Dog, Rock N'Roll and that one about the staircase, need I say more, Copied
Brian Ferry: Mamouna - Doesn't bother to write his own songs very often, should've written better ones here - £2
Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster: Horse Of Dog - Rock's Like a bitch, which is nice £2
Ordinary Boys: Over the Counter Culture - Nothing to write home about, a few good tracks £3
Futureheads: Futureheads - sharp and entertaining indie rock, copied
Prince: Purple Rain - He's a fun wacky, chappy £2
Broadcast: Tender Buttons - Like Ladytron, but not very good, copied
The Go Team: Lightning, Thunder, Strike - Indie, Dance, fun explosion, perhaps a tad repetitive, but still great copied
VHS or BETA: Night on Fire - To many instrumentals but some good indie, dance, electro stuff on the whole. £1
Tim Booth: Bone - Excellent, should've called it a James album then people would've bought it. £1
Elbow: Leaders of the Free World - Suffers in comparison to their previous two, title track ace. Present
Lou Reed: Transformer - a genuine classic £3
Peter Gabriel: 2 - the weakest Gabriel, despite ace cover
Talk Talk: The Very Best Of: Mostly excellent stuff from an overlooked group. £3
Echo & The Bunnymen: Porcupine - Some of the songs are soooo good. Fine stuff £3
Dead 60's: Dead 60's: Always good to here ska, album would benefit from some pace changes
and less filler. Copied
Depeche Mode: Playing the Angel- Business as usual, usually singles better than their albums. Neither great here. copied.

Blessed & The Daleks together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I need to lie down..................................
