Lorde Pure Heroine
When 'Royals' dropped you could hear the collective pop community gasping "God we needed that one!" At a time of over sampled over imitative hip-pop the track was a perfect statement of minimalism: real, talented, purposeful. There's not much else that comes close on "Pure Heroine" except 'Team' and 'Tennis Court'. Move fast Lorde. The world is watching.

Bob Dylan The Bootleg Series, Vol. 1-3 1961-1991
Dylan fans will love listening to the man's songwriting, structuring, ideological and philosophical development and processes. Note that I said Dylan fans.

U2 Songs of Innocence
U2 revisit their old failings for 'Songs of Innocence': numb electro, unabashed pop worship and overwhelming sincerity. And nail it.

The Beatles The Beatles
Double albums should embrace a sense of freedom and be a little wild. 'The White Album' is best when it does so, getting all pro-metal on 'Helter Skelter' and menacingly psychedelic for 'Happiness Is A Warm Gun'. But the endless trite of "oh yeah, that was a nice song... and that one... and that one... and that one" makes you realise that this is actually one of the LEAST daring doubles ever. rSo why the hell can't I stop listening to it?

Sonic Youth The Eternal
'The Eternal' is the Youth's most consistent album in years with luminous sonic interludes and walls of transcendent, spiritual guitar.

Jay-Z The Black Album
Two thirds of 'The Black Album' is humourless, indulgent self promotion. The late revival of 'Moment of Clarity', '99 Problems' and 'Lucifer' pull together elements that previous tracks didn't even attempt.
