By far the best best-of I've read. Cheers for including The Bees here-- this band should be huge, but every year they're overlooked. Nice one.

Thanks for the mention. And I totally agree on Blockhead--that would have been on my list if I had heard of it in time. Utterly amazing album.

Thanks again.
