  4. Morrissey, Wembley Arena, London

    The quiff may be thinning, the face may be jowly and the rhetoric may at times be tired, but the voice is still strong and the words still flow.

  5. The Best Kids Christmas Album In The World Ever!!!

    The Best Kids Christmas Album In The World Ever!!!

    This is an album that shouldn't work on paper. It does because of the enthusiasm of all concerned, and the simple fact that the songs are ace.

  6. Lily Allen - Littlest Things

    Lily Allen - Littlest Things

    Most singers harping on about wanting an ex back sound either desperate, despondent or just plain scary - Lily doesn't fall into any of these ballad traps.

  7. Embrace - I Can’t Come Down

    Embrace - I Can’t Come Down

    Without any character or charisma, a rousing tune is the only thing they've got going for them. Unfortunately, it's completely missing from this forgettable track.

  8. The Rapture - W.A.Y.U.H.

    The Rapture - W.A.Y.U.H.

    The song soon builds up to the full-on frenetic disco bitchfest; you can just picture yourself in the dramatic stand-off.

  9. Babyshambles - The Blinding EP

    Babyshambles - The Blinding EP

    Doherty sounds completely confident, with none of the shambolic weakness that can tar the band for anyone who doesn't enjoy an artist being a mess.

  10. Fields - If You Fail We All Fail

    Fields - If You Fail We All Fail

    Fields will blow your mind in the most spectacular way possible. It's just how the Icelandics do it.

  11. Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly - War Of The Worlds

    Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly - War Of The Worlds

    No it's not about martians invading, although it would be slightly more interesting if it was.

  12. MTV Brand Spanking New Music Tour

    MTV has made a killing out of staging events that pick the best of the year's breakthrough artists, shoving them in a venue that's far too big for them, and then filming it.

  13. The Others - The Truth That Hurts

    The Others - The Truth That Hurts

    Now, see, if we were The Others, we wouldn't have chosen that for the name of our comeback single.

  14. Scissor Sisters, SECC, Glasgow

    At pauses between segments, we are treated to lessons, on such subjects as releasing our inner child, Celtic clans and a feather boa massacre.

  15. The Maccabees - First Love

    The Maccabees - First Love

    First proper single 'First Love' is astounding - a cross between The Futureheads sobbing into their beer and Damon Albarn going all shy and tongue-tied.
