David Sylvain - Oh my God, I was so in love with him when I was 13/14 and had his picture stuck all over my little school books.
I loved his blond, pale enigmatic, gay look, and whiny voice... that really takes be back.

That's so depressing David Sylvain and knowing that it's 25 years since John Lennon died ! This must mean that I am very nearly forty

Yes I must check out the Kaiser Chiefs album.. They've really grown on me in recent months! (might give to Nick at Xmas)
Gorillaz - loved the singles, but thought the album had it's ups and downs!
I think I would put BlocParty in my 2005 list, but then again it mught have been 2004!? It was along time ago...
David Sylvian eh? Funny, I mentioned him the other day in tats comments. TBH I didn't know he was still making music!
I like your taste in music. You have a wide range! I like the way you can have Babyshambles and Coldplay in the same list.. :-)

the david sylvian album is incredible (hang on a sec... i'm a little biased haha).

it's charting the second half of his break up to ingrid chavez. the first album, 'blemish' was at his most bitter, then this album under the title 'nine horses' is him coming out the other side. doesn't sound like he's had an easy time of it. but you know david, he wears his heart on his sleeve.

great album. i'll bring it over with me so you can have a listen ;)
