Our record collections have grown in abundance this year. Not only due to the incredible calibre of awesome albums released, but also do to the sheer beauty of many of the releases. Here are 35 of most beautiful.
Fancy Aphex Twin's folded face in perspex? BANKS in blood red/ If you're fond of leopard print and grunge then the Brody Dalle vinyl is the one for you, or if you're after a little 'blood-splattered reptile' chic then we'd advise picking up the Jurassic Park soundtrack. Then there's the scarlet beauty of Warpaint, the crystal clear wonder of Chet Faker, the 'Magic' of Coldplay or some bloody heavy and awesome box sets from Suede, Mogwai and Jack White.
Putting the needle on these is always a pleasure. Get them in your record cabinet now.
