The 11 Greatest Albums Of 2011

So, yeah. List Season is well and truly over and so with this being a hip and happening blog I really wanted to really shake things up and so I thought – prepare yourselves people – I’d rank last year’s best albums. What about that eh? The year’s best albums, in an objective numeric order? A month after everyone and their grandmother’s cat has done it? Unheard of!

And on with the show. Continue reading

Jessie J

It’s 2010. You can imagine the confusion at Island Records. Having signed Jessica Cornish to their roster, the pressing question was what to do with her. She had proved that she could pen a hit (Miley Cyrus’ Party In The USA went #1 in America), she had proved that she could sing – and whatever else I write here I would like to ensure that people are aware that I know she can sing – but where would she fit in the current pop climate? Were they to mold her into a Lady Gaga-esque outlandish megapop queen? A semi-rapping Rihanna pastiche? Or an inspirational hip pop balladeer a la Natasha Bedingfield? And the sad truth of the answer is that they opted for a car crash of all three.
