The Invisible : Rispah

The long-awaited sophomore effort from London-based the Invisible is a grown up and cohesive piece but over-shadowed by talk of grief.

Music

DAT Politics: Blitz Gazer

Looking to combat a long and desperately boring drive? Blitz Glazer should be your weapon of choice. A perfect pop performance.

Music

Shed: Shedding the Past

Detroit style German techno wizardry.

Music

The Amazing World of Arthur Brown: The Voice of Love

I am the god of hellfire and I bring you… a collection of acoustic tunes.

Music

Monkey: Journey to the West

A musical, circus stage show based on a 16th century Chinese novel about a monkey who dreamed of being a god? Damon Albarn must have something to do with it. But stripped of the fancy visuals, the music is left wanting.

Music

CIAM: Anonymous

Neo-goth noodlings spoiled by a cover version on the banned list.

Music

DJ Yoda: FabricLive 39

Superstar DJ mixes it up for the Fabric audience.

Music

Lowlight: Bloodline

It is pretty easy to work out what the people on the album cover are running away from.

Music

The Death Set: Worldwide

Songs fed through the early 1980s UK punk scene and spat out at velocity accompanied by a biscuit tin lid, a cheap Bontempi organ and a Speak and Spell. It's a noise, but a welcome noise.

Music

Apocalyptica: Worlds Collide

Apocalyptica began their career by marching to the beat of their own drum, but the introduction of percussion brings them into the mainstream.

Music

Whitesnake: Good To Be Bad

Does exactly what it says on the tin, only better than you might expect.

Music

Asia: Phoenix

Easily the best Asia album in 25 years. If only it hadn't been released a quarter of a century ago.

Music

Eastfield/Destructors 666: Labor Omnia Vincit

Punk grandads still working hard

Music

Beau Jennings: Holy Tulsa Thunder

"Alt-country" side project of Cheyenne frontman does what it says on the tin.

Music

Lisa Cerbone: We Were All Together

A stark but beautiful acoustic recording with a certain peculiar charm.

Music

Mud: Yearbook

Not the influential 1970s British glam rock icons but another Avril Lavigne sound-a-like skate punk outfit from San Francisco.

Music

Cedric Gervais: Space Miami Terrace

You had to be there, but if you were it was probably a cracking night.

Music

The French Kicks: Swimming

The French Kicks over-egg a now soggy but once delicious pudding.

Music

Firewater: The Golden Hour

Firewater blow up the laboratory and produce… a great pop record.

Music

Lissa Schneckenburger: Song

A cheerful array of old school folk tunes with the emphasis on the fiddle.

Music

Nine Inch Nails: Ghosts I-IV

A radical departure for Nine Inch Nails challenges conventional wisdom of their music and the music industry.

Music

Paul Stanley: Live To Win

After 28 years Paul Stanley releases his first non-KISS branded solo album. Perhaps not surprisingly, it is a fun but not very satisfying chunk of slick, over-chewed bubble gum.

Music

Optimo: Psych Out

A motley array of psychedelic, acid, rare grooves and the best song that Simple Minds ever recorded.
