Kasabian: 48:13

On 48:13, Kasabian largely eschew rock, pop and melody for a sound dominated by electronica and synths. With this they have lost a lot of what made them so good.

Paul Weller: More Modern Classics

No collection could do justice to some of the diverse paths which Paul Weller has pursued over the last decade.

Echo and the Bunnymen: Meteorites

This is not a "return to form". Some of the tracks are a bit boring and ponderous. But there are still just about enough chunks of Meteorites to compare with the Bunnymen's illustrious heyday.

Sade: The Essential Sade

Sade the band and the singer are responsible for classy, timeless music. Shame this collection is what feels like a pointless re-packaging

Kaiser Chiefs: Education, Education, Education & War

A big moment for the Kaisers, this album just about passes the pick of the pops test. It still stays too much in their quasi-new wave/indie comfort zone, but the different and interesting bits lend it some allure.
