 » The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.

October 1, 2004
Simon Fisher Turner is marvelous, he has here created the soundtrack to a film which he has generously allowed the listener to write his or her own sequence of events and script for, if one be necessary at all. It isn't out of the ordinary for him to create such an audible picture for he has done it more then a few times in the past, most often with the english film director Derek Jarman. This album has been put forth with the aid of Robin Rimbaud.

This music at times is danceable, heavily rhythmic, enthralling, and bassy. At others it is perfect for laying, having intellectual conversation about all the injustices and depressing things of the world to which it responds and adds the color of optimism which all those who call themselves intellectuals need from time to time and is often found in the most unintelligent of places (this not being one if you thought that was what I was implying).

SFT sounds like a less airy Brian Eno, or a more matured Fatboy Slim. Also said to be the early seventies answer to David Cassidy by Britain, he must be more than just an answer since I don't know who David Cassidy is and I know who Simon Fisher Turner is. He is amazing.
