Today, Stephen Morris steps up to The Quietus's Bakers Dozen challenge as he tells us all about his favourite 13 albums


LCD Soundsystem - Sound Of Silver
This is the easily the best album of the last 10 years. I saw him recently, in London with Hot Chip, and it was absolutely fucking brilliant. James Murphy can do no wrong, and being an unlikely front man shouldn’t be any reason to stop you from being one. He just makes me think "I wish I’d thought of that. I wish I’d written that song." It can be hard to mix dance and alternative rock, but he does it brilliantly. I see a connection between what we did as New Order and what he does. The sad thing is, we were playing a tour in France with New Order and LCD were there, and they were all there on laptops. I saw them and thought, 'Should I go over and say I think you’re fucking brilliant?' And I decided: no.
