Jeff Buckley - Grace
U.N.K.L.E. - Psyence Fiction
Craig Armstrong - Space Between Us

The Jeff Buckley album because it's in a word brilliant. A perfect album, no album, fillers. Unusual chord progressions, poetic lyrics, a genius at work. Probably the best album ever made, in my opinion.

The U.N.K.L.E. album because it's groundbreaking, and shows the impressive results of collaborations between dance / trip-hop musicians and indie-vocalists (like Thom Yorke and Richard Ashcroft). I like this album, as it's trying to do something a bit different.

The Craig Armstrong album because, in the words of a BBC producer who heard the album in our flat (when hubby was on "Watchdog", we had a music + wine break!), it's like an "aural spliff". Strings, beats, chilled out cool. A must-listen-to for fans of all genres.
