The best albums this month had to offer.
It's been an excellent month for music, which is just what we needed to start our end-of-the-month series of album favourites. We'll be exploring the best albums of every month, with no genre left unturned. Plus, stay tuned for the albums we're looking forward to listening to in March...
Ariana Grande - Thank U, Next
We barely had time to get over 2018's Sweetener before its follow-up Thank U, Next arrived earlier this month. Full of attitude with a touch more fun, it featured an empowering title single, the unapologetic 7 Rings and the rather hilarious Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored. We love Ariana's self-loving new attitude to life.
As a tease to whet your appetite for the main event, the retrospective album 'Best Of 00-10' Ladytron are releasing a new single 'Ace Of Hz'. The track serves both as a stab in the arm to those who may have temporarily forgotten the bands worth but also as an example to those who have been forged in their wake but who have failed to take up their mantle.
Ace Of Hz is by no means Ladytron's finest work but it is still staggeringly better than anything conjured up by their growing number of inferior imitators. What astonishes me sometimes is how such energized, spirited, full blown, driven..........and above all enjoyable music is not loved, adored, feted, cherished or even just appreciated by so many more people. Why aren't Ladytron as big as say The Chemical Brothers, Leftfield or even Underworld?
In a back catalogue of four fine albums and countless re mixes, that have both influenced and absorbed the culture in which they work, Ladytron have every justification for feeling a little short changed. (If you're measuring everything by commercial success that is) Forming towards the death rattle of Brit-Pop through Liverpool, via Israel and Bulgaria, and choosing to use synth heavy bass beats like an electro version of an Indie Guitar band with a pop bias may have not sounded like a winner on paper. However, the results are nearly all a testament to their singular vision; Ace of Hz being the latest in a long line of pedigree releases.

One question that won't come up in any music quizzes of the foreseeable future is the bafflingly unanswerable "Why aren't Ladytron one of the biggest bands in the world?" Nevertheless, as bemusing facts go, it really is quite scandalous that one of the most innovative outfits to grace these shores this past decade still never have a top forty hit single amongst their hugely impressive back catalogue.
