Once a month, The Ticket convenes the Album Club where a panel of guest critics air their views about one album and you, the readers, get to have your say on their views and, of course, the album in question.

This time around, it’s post-dubstep maestro James Blake’s self-titled debut album which is up for review. Here’s my review of the album, which I think is one of the albums of the year.

But who cares what I think? The Ticket Album Club heads to Kildare Street and strolls into the Dail bar to solicit the opinions of four politicians on Blake’s opus. The TDs turned critics are Independent Luke “Ming” Flanagan, Sinn Fein’s Sandra McLellan, Fine Gael’s Eoghan Murphy and Fianna Fáil’s Charlie McConalogue. Ceann Comhairle: Daragh Downes.

Read what our guest critics had to say here, listen to the album here and, of course, add your views on the reviews and the album below.
