Chapel Clubs album is great, hopefully not another case of over-hyped upcoming band.

Gruff Rhys's latest solo album is quality too, he is so underated IMO.
WE MUST KEEP THE LIVERPOOL WAY!

START BY BANNING ALL HALF AND HALF SCARVES (recently updated)AND IPADS!!

Adele Reveals Second Album Details


Adele has announced details of the follow up to her hugely successful 2008 debut album '19'. Following in that album's footsteps, Adele's second record will be called '21' and is set for release in Ireland on January 21st.

Most of the album was made in Malibu with the respected producer Rick Rubin (Johnny Cash, Jay Z, Red Hot Chilli Peppers) and back in Kensal Rise in London with Paul Epworth (Plan B, Bloc Party, Florence). Adele has said the album has been influenced by the music of Wanda Jackson, Andrew Bird, Mary J Blige, Mos Def, Elbow, Tom Waits and Kanye West amongst others, so expect it to be a somewhat eclectic affair.

Speaking of the release the Grammy Award winning singer said "I'm very excited, nervous, eager, anxious but chuffed to announce my new album! It's taken a while and it knocked me for six when writing it. It's different from '19', it's about the same things but in a different light. I deal with things differently now. I'm more patient, more honest, more forgiving and more aware of my own flaws, habits and principles. Something that comes with age I think. So fittingly this record is called '21'. The whole reason I called my first album '19' was about cataloguing what happened to me then and who I was then, like a photo album you see the progression and changes in a person throughout the years".

The first single to be taken from the album will be "Rolling In The Deep", due for release on Friday January 14th. Written and produced by Adele and award winning British producer Paul Epworth, she has described the track as a "dark bluesy gospel disco tune".

I must be suffering some form of alcohol/cigarette/drug lapse but I love this album

I've tried to like this offering I really have as I'm a fan of the Strokes (particularly live) but jaysus - this is ordinary. Catchy enough here and there but by no means worth a five year wait.

I'm sure enough folk will like it enough; if for no other reason other than 'loyalty'. Too many unmemorable tracks, i'm afraid.

I was gonna buy the hard copy too. I do that for bands that I reckon are really worth it. Is it worth it?

Each to their own LL - not the worst album i've ever heard; just not worth the wait. If I had a few quid (for only one album) i'd spend it on something else. ...The View's - 'Bread And Circuses', for e.g. ....an offering with less filler and more worth the 'must have' tag than 'Angles' (IMO).  :nod:

A really good album is Come Around Sundown by the Kings Of Leon it's a bit mainstream but really well produced.

He's about as funny as toothache mate.

Agreed. Saw them in Liverpool a few months back and they were great.

Not a huge fan of the whole album, but I love that Rolling in the Deep song by her. Reminds me of an ex, makes me nostalgic, probably not the only person who has that. :P

5 more good hip hop albums released over the past few weeks:

360° Deal - Da Circle
Oneirology - CunninLynguists
Heroes In The Healing Of The Nation - Zion I & The Grouch
W.A.R. (We Are Renegades) - Pharoahe Monch
True Theory - Luck-One

PS: Don't get your hopes up about "Detox" by Dr. Dre - it's so incredibly sh*t and don't say I didn't warn you.

Been giving the Foos new offering 'Wasting Light' a good rattling for a couple of days now - it's good to have them back and very much rejuvenated, in my opinion. The songs (to my ear) are bigger and the production 'different' but still very much Foo Fighter macho, stadium cock-rock; if that makes sense.

All round - a f**king cracking album and their best since TCATS, in my humble.

Like them or loathe them; this is very much a must have.  >:D

Really looking forward to the Foo Fighters.   In this day their is way too much shitty, mass produced pop that lacks any sort of soul or creativity.
The Foo Fighters are the last of a dying breed.  Justin Beiber and the Disney Pop sh*t sucks. It lacks soul and is mass produced to sell to tweenie girls.

God I miss good music.

Don't give up faith. There's still good music being made, just not necessarily in the mainstream.

Very slightly off topic because it's not really a 'must have' but some of you may remember the trouble I had getting hold of 'The Brightside' by Break Even. I'd seen them live and accidentally ordered the LP instead of the CD.
Well for the record, it's a pretty damn good album. The production is dodgy and you can tell they're just starting out but I'm tipping them to do pretty well. Touring Australia in support of Sick of it All won't hurt their case either.

PS - Thanks to Frizzby5 for helping me track down a copy.

Still waiting on the Strokes as well as many others.

So disappointed with Angles.

Really? I like it so much, not perfect, but I think fans were expecting too much and built it up to be something it could never be.

 :roll: No, expecting too much in terms of it being comparable to the first album would leave you disappointed, which was why I kept an open mind and expected something different, which it is.
