Belated Half-Year Review

Just as I was early with my best of June, so I'm a wee bit late with my half-year review. Oh well, I've been on holiday, so I've got an excuse. This is the ideal way to ease my way back into music blogging. I've not got much time, so no detailed comment - just lists of tunes 'n' stuff. Roughly in order of merit. Which of these will be there are the end of the year? Enjoy.
