After last week’s fairly hapless dip into the mainstream (Marina & The Diamonds, incidentally), a more familiar-looking list this week – though there are still a couple of less-than-great albums lurking in this lot among the marquee new entries.

After last week’s fairly hapless dip into the mainstream (Marina & The Diamonds, incidentally), a more familiar-looking list this week – though there are still a couple of less-than-great albums lurking in this lot among the marquee new entries.



First honours go to The White Stripes, predictably I guess, but please note the Autechre and Drive-By Truckers records, both of which I initially prefer to their last albums (though I’m not sure whether I like the latter enough to write about; cue another attack from some of their more committed fans, doubtless). Also, goodness me, Paul Weller.

2 The Magnetic Fields – Realism (Nonesuch)

3 Harappian Night Recordings – The Glorious Gongs Of Hainuwele (Bo’Weavil)

4 Valgeir Sigurdsson – Dreamland (Bedroom Community)

5 The White Stripes – Under Great White Northern Lights (XL)

6 Yep, Still Can’t Reveal What This One Is (I’m As Fed Up As You)

7 Crushed Butler – Uncrushed (RPM)

8 Pantha Du Prince – Black Noise (Rough Trade)

9 Black Francis – Nonstoperotik (Cooking Vinyl)

10 John Kongos – He’s Gonna Step On You Again (Fly)
