Although I like Underworld, and even Billie because of Doctor Who, I have to say this is not a very good list. They're going a tad borderline with Billie's and All Saints' case as well regarding release years.

When reading my complaints, read "Not enough Damon Albarn dang" :mrgreen:

So I just typed it all for nothing apparently ;)

Seems like they are backing up our Unacclaimed nomination for Ellie Goulding - Lights.

All Saints - Pure Shores is a long time favorite of Les Inrocks despite them usually not being a very pop oriented magazine. It's a solid song too. More surprised to see McFly, Take That, Rachel Stevens or Will Young.

Strange list overall, mixes some very indie picks and other very radio-hits one.
Surprised they picked that one song for Kate Nash and Jessie Ware or that they had switched Fix Up, Look Sharp and Bonkers.
Also surprised to see Once and Never Again is not in AM yet, but maybe that's because back then all I was reading was Les Inrocks and they were raving non stop about that song and album.
And most importantly, happy to see Pull Shapes and You! Me! Dancing! in the top 10 (though it's a shame their respective albums are only Bubbling Under)

The guys don't seem to have a detailed bio available, but from their LinkedIn profiles, it looks like they're evenly split. Kevin Wicks and MacKenzie Wilson are apparently American, while Seb Patrick and Fraser McAlpine are apparently British.
