Roy is now so confident he knows what my Top 4 is going to be that he has sent me an email predicting them, only to be opened after the full lists have been revealed. So from his perspective this now turns into a four horse accumulator and the first horse to romp home is ‘Are You Ready?’ by Mercury Rev. I haven’t been huge fan up to now, but really like their album ‘The Light In You’, to the extent I actually bought it – in this new world of streaming I actually only bought about 10 albums this year, although regularly listen to about 40 or so.
I am somewhat bemused that this has just 47,997 hits on YouTube. Compare that to the 10m+ for Chemical Brothers at number 7. I thought Mercury Rev were quite popular. They should be.
