Worlds To Walk Into: Darren Hayman's Favourite Albums
Luke Turner , May 13th, 2020 08:55

As he releases a beautifully reflective album on the fall-out from a broken love, Darren Hayman takes us through 13 favourite albums, from Miles Davis collaborating with John Coltrane via Cliff Richard, the kids from Fame, Liz Phair, Nic Jones, ELO and The Damned.


ELO - Time
Time is a science fiction album. It has songs about falling in love with robots. It has songs about hover cars and time travelling back to the 1980s. BUT THE 1980s HADN’T HAPPENED YET! Why do you not think this is the best music made by humans? Do you not like laser guns? What is wrong with you?
