NME Presents The Essential Bands 2005 (2 Discs)

I know it's a year old already, you don't have to tell me. But I don't have this years yet and still think this set kicks ass. I don't know how highly regarded the NME is overseas but since I first stepped foot in to an import record store and saw one, I have loved it. Although it often seems more like a rock music gossip rag - they consistently feature more of my favorite bands than any other mag I have read. And their compilations are usually top-notch, including the best of Brit-pop and other genres. This set is graced by the likes of The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, Coldplay, Gorillaz and many more. Also, I promise to post the new one as soon as it is in my hot little hands. Track list is mad extensive and I am hellafied tired tonight so just read the photo of the back of the case. Peace and have fun.
