GOO GOO DOLLS: Something For The Rest Of Us. Soaringly melodic power rock from the American band that's been around the best part of a quarter of a century. It shows they've still got it with the new single, Home, a more than fitting torchbearer for the goodies in store. Some of the ballads - especially the soaring Hey Ya - verge on the magnificent as they take their finely-crafted skills to new heights, never more so than on big chiming production numbers such as Not Broken.

REDTRACK: Whole Town's Heart. A band that hails from Southend and bizarrely reckons to be a cross between Girls Aloud and The Clash. Full of smalltown panic attacks and punchy new wave power pop jabs even if they don't quite connect every time.

VARIOUS: Mercury Prize Albums Of The Year. Yes, it's already that time of the year again with the line-up sorted for this year's competition with the winner announced next Tuesday. This includes Paul Weller's Wake Up The Nation, Bubbles by Biffy Clyro, I'd Do It All Again by Corinne Bailey Rae, Set The Tigers Free by Villagers and Bonkers by Dizzee Rascal.
