    Excellent, I always look forward to reading your list. I successfully predicted your top two too! I must admit I haven’t paid a great deal of attention to Suede since they reformed, but I gave The Blue Hour a listen a week or so ago, and I really enjoyed it. I particularly like the orchestral elements of the album. I was also aware that over the past few years I haven’t heard many new albums, so a couple of weeks ago I made a conscious decision to listen to some of this year’s new releases, and I ended up compiling a list of the 42 I managed to listen to. And well, here it is:
