Music blogs are waking up from their Xmas/New Year slumbers. Current highlights…

Simon Reynolds’ albums of the year including some rare affection for Britrap (!) and agreeable discussion of most other stuff.
Marcello Carlin nailing the Hornbyisation of critics’ 2002 lookbacks and bringing us the good news about Tatu.
Andy Kellman‘s ongoing 2002 roundup (entirely UN-Hornby!)
Spizzazz on the UK Top Twenty, always a must-read though some new songs for them to write about would be nice.
– and No Rock N Roll Fun is as bogglingly comprehensive as ever.
