Best of 2013: Best Album 17-11
17) Lorde – Pure Heroine Her massive hit single Royals made it as high as #10 on my Singles list, and Lorde makes a big impact with her debut album too. As a debut album Pure Heroine is incredible, introducing Lorde both as an excellent lyricist but also as a performer with the confidence to … Continue reading
Best of 2013: Best Single 40-31
40) Ellie Goulding – Burn Starting things off is the first #1 hit for one of my favourite artists Ellie Goulding.

Best of 2011: Best Album 25-11
25) Inna – Hot Some may laugh my pick for number 25, I choose to see Inna for what she is, a eurodance act that couldn’t be more generic if she tried. I doubt anyone could listen to Hot and not immediately need a few days on a beach somewhere. Taken for what it is … Continue reading
Best of 2011: Best Single 20-11
20) Jay-Z and Kanye West – Otis (Feat. Otis Redding) Otis is the sound of two of the industry’s best rappers messing around in the studio over an Otis Redding sample. The fun these guys are having is so infectious you can’t help but want to join in with your own verse. Watch their faces … Continue reading
Grammy Awards 2011: Was it worth the effort?
Post Grammy blog posts have looked very similar to each other for the last decade or two. People complain about voters favouring certain genres, ignoring huge talent and being downright stupid in awarding ray Charles the Album of the Year award over Kanye’s College Dropout.
