    Interesting start but we need to have an order-is the Damon Albarn really good? I'd filed it mentally under soundtrack & hadn't thought to download it.

    !! Damon Albarn's album is a 5/5! There are people out there who have been sniffy about mixing up traditional Chinese music with the unmistakeable sound of the Gorillaz but it's simply brilliant. In fact, you will recognise some as they have been heavily used in television advertising. I would have loved to have seen the opera itself but sadly no one shares my taste. :( Will give this draft some more thought (promise!) But it's doing my head in a little...

    Very nice list, but isn't "Back In Black" from 2007? In any case, I think I'll have to check out Flying Lotus's album, and was R.E.M.'s pretty good? The only album of theirs I've heard was "Monster".

    Probably. I did say I might have my years muddled. I really enjoyed REM's album. I reviewed it somewhere, let's see... quick review. 'Monster' is one of my all-time favourites! I've hammered it and it still sounds good. :)
