Tuatha Na Gael - Cruachan - Successful meeting of folk and black metal touches. Over-use of flutes, and few original ideas.
Dru Hill - Dru Hill - Vocals, ballads A couple of weaker tracks.
Enter The Dru - Dru Hill - Great vocals, ballads One or two tracks could be slightly better
Original Sin - Pandora's Box - stirring lyrics, wonderful music, operatic rock anthem too many ballads
Pocket Full Of Sunshine - Natasha Bedingfield - An excellent album featuring a number of brilliant R&B flavoured pop gems. Not officially released in the UK, you may have to pay a little more to own it on import.

Influential, overlooked and LOUD
