Don't you just hate it when...

you buy a new CD. The first couple of tracks are amazing. Then track 3 comes on, and it's total rubbish. I almost can't be bothered to listen to any more. It tends to be 'dance' albums that are trying to play it wide that really bug me.

OK, I'll tell you the album that's pissing me off right now. It's Reachin' Out by Dubble D. It's had great reviews, it's on 2020 Vision (a great label), and it's got some great collaborators on it (Nightmares on Wax, Kate Rogers for example). Starts out great. Then moves into the most heinous jazzwank: the stuff that's so inoffensive it's really offensive. Another couple of albums that I remember hacking me off in the same way are: Block 16, Faze Action and Sylk 130. All 'critically acclaimed' but all have a stinker or two that really bug me.

Maybe it's just me. I don't mind a bit of diversity. My tastes are relatively diverse. But sometimes people (who obviously have great talent in some areas) seem to get it sooooo wrong.

And while I'm at it. Sebastien Tellier - how can someone who can make a track as mind-bendingly beautiful as La Ritournelle fill up an album like Politics with so much absolute guff.

Right, I'm done, Rant over. I guess that's what the forward button is for. And thank god for playlists.

    I dunno... I've had the Sebastien Tellier album for just over a month now and it is a grower. On first listen I wasn't entirely sure about it but now I can quite happily listen to it all the way through.
