1.) 4: Foreigner
2.) 100 Relaxing Classics Vol. 2: Various
3.) Best of: Nik Kershaw
4.) Alright Still: Lily Allen
A clear winner here, the might of 4 by Foreigner containing the fantastic Juke Box Hero, Waiting For A Girl Like You and Urgent. Lily Allen is a curious mix of pop and adolescent blabbering and doesn’t really contain any musical merit. This leaves Kershaws ‘best of‘ which, lets face it doesn’t exactly contain his best work (I only bought it for the immense 12″ version of Wouldn’t It Be Good). The other 12″ versions seem to be just lazy extended versions with no real thought, I am slightly suspicious that Nik didn’t really have anything to do with selecting the tracks on this album. With that said it’s up against 100 relaxing classics vol 2 which despite me not having heard it many times I quite like and I’m gonna do something rash and plomp it 2nd in this group and therefore through to the next round, hurrah!
