She goes on and on and on and on about love. But am I ever enough? Our Fold - She Goes On

Maybeshewill – Fair Youth

Maybeshewill have created a monstrous beauty.

Prawn – Kingfisher

Twinkling guitars, excellent weaving. You get an A+, Prawn.


Impressive and on the cusp of breathtaking, but there’s a little missing.

Amanda X – Amnesia

A promising debut of exhilarating guitar-rock.

Charlie Simpson – Long Road Home

The very pleasant cover art shows Simpson fading into the background.

The Cape Race – Home, Truths

Near-operatic, ultra-passionate Mancunian alt-rock.

Spoon – They Want My Soul

Spoon return with one of their best albums yet.

Sam Smith – In the Lonely Hour

Flashes of brilliance, but ultimately lackluster.

Owl John – Owl John

Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison carves his own shelter from old wood
