Andrew Davidson (RGU Rocks Show)
Best Album: While She Sleeps – Brainwashed
The terms ‘metal core’ and ‘original’ tend not to go hand in hand, but Brainwashed launches 12 tracks which feel like a breathe of fresh air, as much as they do a sledgehammer directly to the skull. As a punk fan, the establishment-bashing and unity-spreading lyrics makes Brainwashed a golden standard of what any modern punk or metal band should stand for.

Best Song: Creeper – Lie Awake
Lie Awake has that timeless anthem quality which once you hear it first time, it feels like it’s been in your music collection for years. In fact, it’s hard to believe that it hasn’t been a punk rock anthem for decades.

Anna Hughes MacIver (What The Feminism Show)
Best Album: Gabrielle Aplin – Light Up the Dark
Gabrielle Aplin’s second album is just as powerful and emotional as her first one. Her very personal song writing allows the listener to feel as if some of the songs were written just for you. There are a few more songs though on this album that are more upbeat which you can dance along to.

Best Song: Dana Williams – Let’s Fall
Dana has a gorgeous voice and this song is very dreamy, almost sounding like a lullaby. It’s a very simple and beautiful love song, which goes perfectly with her strong and unique vocals.

Declan Gordon (RGU Rocks Show)

Best Album: Enter Shikari – The Mindsweep
Enter Shikari solidified their place as one of the UK’s best rock acts with this album. A very good collective album with each track deserving to be a stand out track.

Best Song: Neck Deep – Can’t Kick Up The Roots
Neck Deep have proven that there are still real Punk Rock bands in the UK. This album has some absolute bangers coupled with excellent song writing and classic riffs. Best track on there would probably be Can’t Kick Up The Roots.

 

Vicky Parker (What The Feminism Show)

Best Album: Foo Fighters – Sonic Highways
As a standalone unit, this album doesn’t make much sense. It appears as a scattered array of attempts at different genres and isn’t cohesive. Coupled with the TV series, it is the perfect homage to the musical history of America. The album tells a story like no other. An amazing album from Grohl and company.

Best Song: Nerina Pallot – Rousseau
A delicate and thoughtful offering from the Jersey songstress. Rousseau stands as a best of both of evocative lyrics and expertly crafted melodies. With reference to the French philosopher, Nerina takes us on an introspective look at humanity and the world around her. A beautiful track.
