Forget Eminem. Forget Nas. If you want expert lyricism, look no further than Riff Raff’s Neon Icon.

Review of '48:13' by Kasabian

I understand that there are a lot of people out there who dislike Kasabian's style of 'lad rock', because I guess that's the cool thing to do. Well, screw all you haters - I point-blank refuse to ride the hate train.

Review of 'I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now' by Got a Girl

I Love You But I Must Drive Off This Cliff Now is a sixties-style French-pop-flavoured album featuring that girl from 'Scott Pilgrim vs The World' (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) on vocals and that guy who produced the first Gorillaz album (Dan the Automator) on instrumentation.

La Roux. La who? Remember 'Bulletproof'? Remember 'In For the Kill'? Remember that crazy hairstyle? Of course you do.

Review of 'While (1 is less than 2)' by Deadmau5

No-one was expecting the Canadian house producer and Disney-icon-lookalike to drop an album like this. 

Review of Gangsta Stripper Music 2 by BeatKing

Loving the rainbow! Gay pride all the way!

Sexually explicit inane lyrics. Check. Obnoxious 808 bass drums. Check. Autotuned and pitched down vocals. Check. Staccato flows that sound like someone's having an asthma attack. Check.

Review of 'Once More 'Round the Sun' by Mastodon

Album artwork of the year!!!

'Hey ho, hey ho, let's get up and rock n' roll!' sing a load of children on the eighth track, 'Aunt Lisa'. Seriously, is my hearing playing up? Did that just happen? That's the corniest thing I've heard since Beyonce and Jay-Z's duet 'Drunk in Love'. Pass me a sickbag!
