VARIOUS ARTISTS

Three Score And Ten ****

This massive 7-CD box set retails at EUR48, which isn't unreasonable for a lavish, loving tribute to Topic Records - the oldest Independent label in the world. There are greats like Martin Carthy, as well as uplifting music from Ireland, Scotland and Wales. All human life is here.

BUSTER SHUFFLE

Our Night Out ***

Flouting the 2-Tone revivalist tag, the pork pie-hatted, unfortunately acronymed BS have a verve and feel for the ska foundations laid by early Specials and Madness. They also add imaginative arrangements, sharp tunes and harmonies to the mix. Natty 'n' nice.

THE BOXER REBELLION

Union ***

The Boxers were one of the most highlyfancied bands around on the release of their 2005 debut Exits. It's been a long wait, but the faithful will be cheered by the arrival of this long-awaited follow-up. The sleek and meditative yet boldly poetic Boxer sound soars high above a troubled recent past that includes the collapse of their label and critical illness of singer Nathan Nicholson.
