    I really, really want to see your record collection. I suspect that Steps may be lurking in there somewhere too!

    *bet you listed to Radio 1!*

    It's all on my Last.fm page But no, I tend to avoid commercial radio like the plague, it's generally just so full of crap these days.

    I would also like to add British Sea Power - Do You Like Rock Music? to my faves

    The let-down for me was The Verve - Forth. Not very impressed. Love Is Noise and Valium Skies are the only stand-out tracks for me on the album.

    Viva La Vida may just be song of the year. The album as a whole was a bit of a let down X&Y was better IMHO. Also up for song of the year would be Suttering by Ben's Brother, All Summer Long by Kid Rock, The Man Who Can't be Moved by The Script and I'm Outta Time by Oasis.

    As for Album of the Year...

    Dig Your Soul Out by Oasis probably get's it....
    but
    Cross Eyed Rambler by Paul Heaton and
    Accelerate by R.E.M.

    are close contenders. The new Prospekt's March EP from coldplay is also quite good - better than Viva La Vida (album) itself.

    All IMHO.

    Patrick Bateman: Do you like Huey Lewis and the news?
    Paul Allen: They're OK.
    Patrick Bateman: Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercial and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far much more bitter, cynical sense of humour.
    Paul Allen: Hey Halberstram.
    Patrick Bateman: Yes, Allen?
    Paul Allen: Why are their copies of the style section all over the place, d-do you have a dog? A little chow or something?
    Patrick Bateman: No, Allen.
    Paul Allen: Is that a rain coat?
    Patrick Bateman: Yes it is! In '87, Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip to be Square", a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself.

    Showing my age here! They are a class act. Highlight of the year was seeing them live as the original (ish) band in Liverpool.

    Are you sure?

    I can't get enough of this album! I think they have finally grown up and come into their own as song writers. IMHO this album should push them into the same league as bands such as R.E.M., Bon Jovi, U2, Coldplay.

    And Liam's song - I'm Outta Time. wow - that's all I've got to say - just plain wow!

    Sorry but i just can't help thinking about all the albums that are some of the best albums ever released like Definitely Maybe, (What's the Story) Morning Glory? and think it is nowhere near in the same league. but there some good songs on the album but that's it as for the kings of leon new album i am still listening to every song.

    You have to be joking...... LIAM.... a SONGWRITER.... no way, not having it.. he can only write in rhyming couplets.... listen to all his songs, there like a child writing a poem where the last two words of each line have to rhyme.... just listen....
