Oh God, that bloody harmonica in Timber is doing my nut in. This is not the best start to a year ever, it has to be said.

Tell you what, when they finally get around to recording Drunk In Love properly, it could be something good. This version sounds to me almost like it was recorded for a laugh. Control and Million Pound Girl pretty much passed me by completely, though.

Good work, Sub Focus – Turn Back Time is lovely. Looking at the video for Do It All Over Again, I’m wondering if Elyar Fox was being marketed as the Next Big Thing. If he was, something went seriously awry because three weeks after entering the chart, this song was out of the Top 75 altogether. In truth, the song’s better than that, but it’s still not particularly great.
