So in order to stave off having to rename my blog Isaac Ashe's Isn't Music Brilliant or something similar I thought I'd write this little post, to prove I don't like everything.
If you're reading this and you own a copy, you ought to be ashamed of yourself, log off right now.

Musicians from across the world and as young as seven have mucked in to produce this upbeat album which melds African, Latin and jazz influences, all in the name of khazis.

I DON'T normally blog about singles, so I'll keep it brief, but I thought I'd point out that the impending Golden Age, the first to be taken from New York-based five-piece TV On The Radio's latest LP Dear Science, above, is a glittering multi-layered slice of funky Prince-like rock that's well worth seeking out.

I KNOW you all like something for nothing, so why not download The Whip's cracking new free mix album by clicking here.
The Mancunian dance punks' 10-track mix includes the cracking Soulwax remix of the Chemical Brothers' Hey Boy Hey Girl and their own reworking of Hadouken!'s Decleration Of War.
However the sound morphed from the original blurred vision - that appeared on The Desert Sessions Volume Two, if you’re interested - to their debut Peace Love Death Metal, a pulsating mix of handlebar moustaches, skin-tight leather trousers and ballsy, camp stoner rock.
Imagine what it would sound like if the Scissor Sisters invited Lemmy to play bass, and all took viagra an hour before the recording...

AS THIS 2004-released CD by Swedes Jeniferever is technically an EP, with only four tracks to its name, I've shied away from dropping it into my 'Classic Collection' selection.
However Iris is not a release to be taken lightly.
Weighing in at over 40-minutes, each track is an understated epic, starting with spacious, sophorific beginnings and rising to joyous horn-and-string-soaked climaxes.
Slow and delicate but never laboured, this post-rock prelude to their debut LP Choose A Bright Morning is sure to please fans of groups such as Sigur Ros and Mogwai.
And only it'll only cost you half the price of a run of the mill album to boot.
