  • It's difficult, ain't it? Classic music of 2010?

    The XX does that count? Quite good. A bit like 'Faith' by The Cure. I'm struggling, though.

    If John Peel were still alive, he'd know.

    I agree - you would have been his Festive Fifty!
  • just heard "Where Dreams Go To Die" by John Grant which has to be a contender - a beautiful song (think Hawley / Wainwright) and I see his album is the Mojo album of the year so worth checking out I guess.

    PS XX album was out autumn last year

    Pretty much agree with this, Foals and Delphic were probably the best 2 bands at Reading this year. Recommend going to see them if anyone hasn't yet.
