    1. That’s a pretty extensive list you’ve got there – have you been peeking at my research?

      Many of the above we’re certainly considered for inclusion, although as I try to limit the number of albums in these year-by-year summaries – for reasons of space if nothing else – there’s always going to be items missing from the choices of others.

      ‘Scorpio Rising’ in particular very nearly made the cut – the ‘Hands Around My Throat’ track bristles with exotic nuance – but overall, perhaps it sounds a little too indentured to some early 2000’s sound-scape?
