WATCH the “Bitter” video and have a good weekend.
So what is missing? Well there are some genres which I detest with a ferocity that I could sell to Iran to replace their nuclear weapons programme. Disco is one and most of what is today called RnB I consider to be nothing more than soulless soul. Occasionally, a mainstream commercial release will slip in, […]
I confess to being no respecter of reputations. Some albums, very highly rated, I simply do not have because, their status notwithstanding, I never liked them.

Now, someone has asked how is it possible to compile such a list. Well, actually, it is not that difficult though it is a bit time consuming. Copy the names and artists from your iTunes onto a word document and then delete out those you know definitely will not make it. Then you are left […]
