  29. Album of the year

    Interested in hearing what people would consider to be the best album of 2021, and yes I do insist on one album as opposed to a list! I'm saying 'As Days Get Dark' by Arab Strap. Very rarely does a band reunite and put out their best album but it's an absolute corker.

    Sad to see the passing of Mike Nesmith, Steve Bronski and Mensi today. As a big fan of the angelic upstarts the latter saddens me most. A band who released some absolute classic singles and a few brilliant albums. Hard to count how many times I'd seen them live. https://youtu.be/owrVQebWCtc
