Ms.Dynamite was very much the next big thing back in 2002 - she had 2 Top 10 singles, glowing reviews from critics, won the Mercury Music Prize and got herself 2 BRIT awards. Yet her second album...

I've been relistening to 'The Red Shoes' recently too and completely agree with this. The production is a bit off but if you can get over that, some of the songs are just as strong as those on...

Her self-titled album is one of my favourite R&B albums, in a genre that is often more singles-orientated. Listening to newer R&B/R&B-influenced acts like SZA, FKA twigs and Jessy Lanza, you can...

I've been listening to the album a lot this month and really like it, she's certainly one to watch for the future. In fact, I really enjoy this modern R&B/electronic/pop hybrid that artists like FKA...

This is actually a reference to Whitney Houston's song 'My Name Is Not Susan', which came out a few years before 'Whatta Man'. The Whitney song is about her partner confusing her and his other woman...

Nice list and great album picks too! The ones in bold are some of my favourite albums. I would probably pick 'Unleashed Memories' and 'Mother Earth' for Lacuna Coil and Within Temptation personally,...

Well yes of course :D. That's pretty much how I've always thought of it - sort of as a slightly separate introduction to the song he wrote at 21. As I say though, it depends on how literally you're...

It depends how literally you want to take it all, but I can see where 'it's frothy man' is coming from. If he wrote the song at 21, then that includes the first line "I was 21 years when I wrote this...

This line was actually lifted directly from Simon and Garfunkel's "Leaves That Are Green", so maybe you should be blaming Paul Simon instead!

I'm not going to argue that it's some kind of lyrical masterpiece, but people do seem to ignore the second line of the Sandi Thom song - "in '77 and '69 revolution was in the air". The song is about...

'Drop them keys' is incorrect English, that's the point. As mimicole points out, using the correct phrase - 'drop those keys' - makes no difference to the number of syllables, so there's no reason...

I think genres also need to be considered. Rock music is notoriously male-centric, as is hip hop, to give just two examples (though females have never been entirely absent from either genre, of...

I'm yet to hear most of his work, but I do like what I've heard from both Sun Kil Moon and Red House Painters. I really like 'Perils from the Sea' from last year too. I haven't got round to listening...

I'll second this but add that all of her albums with Nightwish are well worth a listen. In fact, 'Oceanborn' is probably my personal favourite.

I like the debut album a lot, though I do think the singles are a lot stronger than the rest of the album (though that's not exactly a rare occurrence in pop music). I was listening to a lot of 80s...

'Lights' for me is decent enough but just fairly average electropop overall, and it is quite samey. I think 'Halcyon' has a couple of weak tracks but is a much, much stronger album than her debut. It...

I completely agree that 'Aaliyah' is her strongest album, while 'Age Ain't Nothing But a Number' is pretty average overall. Getting Timbaland as a producer did wonders for her music, but even the...

I saw the first one several years ago. It's very silly and isn't going to blow anyone away, but it is quite good fun.

60s-influenced for sure, but it's actually from 1991! Good choice nonetheless. If you don't know them already, I'd check out Cornelius, Cibo Matto and Flipper's Guitar for more Japanese music along...

I think 'The Exorcist' is a bit of both - a classic horror and a bit dated and camp! The problem with viewing 'The Exorcist' for the first time now is that the key scenes have been parodied, put on...
