Been checking out Idles recently after coverage on 6 Music and that is a cracking album, must confess to usually being slow on the uptake for new music but glad to have got round to this one.

There's an awful version of thank you for the music on the Anderson album...that's as far as I got before I had to remove it from the CD player

I'm going to make an amendment to my nominations.

I taking out the LCD Soundsystem album & moving the King Krule 'The Ooz' to the main genre, quite honestly I'm unsure how to categorise their album

I'm also nominating Benjamin Clementine album 'I Tell A Fly'

Leon... have a listen to Carry Fire, I am not sure it should be in the rock category, but maybe in the folk/country section... not sure....
