World's Strongest Man is the magnificent third solo album by Gaz Coombes. Inspired variously by Grayson Perry's the Descent of Man, Frank Ocean's Blonde, Californian weed, British woodlands, unchecked toxic masculinity and hip hop (and a whole lot more besides), it's a truly remarkable collection of eleven deeply personal songs each set to expansive, addictive melody. From the deep soul purge of the title track to the coruscating Fripp-goes-motorik sprint of 'Deep Pockets' via the gorgeous cyclonic ballad 'Slow Motion Life' and the raw-as-hell stream of consciousness panic attack in 'Vanishing Act,' World's Strongest Man is a bold, ambitious, free-thinking, future-facing rock'n'roll record.

Well, it's that time of the year again--time for a look-back on what was worth making note of during the calendar year that's about to come to an end. It's from a totally personal, subjective point of view, of course, but frankly that's the way opera-lovers always seem to like it, n'est-ce pas? The productions worth noting come from places big, small and in-between, from composers old as the hills to freshly minted or somewhere in between (likewise the performers), from traditional or boldly modern to simply stand up and sing.
