19. Hugh Laurie - Let Them Talk
I have no qualms about saying that I fucking love this record. This was either going to be really good or really bad, and thankfully it was the former. Hugh Laurie is a man of many talents, as seen in his televisual roles, and evidently, creating an album of dam catchy hooks is also one of them. I'm a big jazz and blues fan, and this album really is now one of my favorite blues records, with the guest vocalists, including Tom Jones and Irma Thomas, and the guest musicians Vincent Henry and Kevin Breit, this album is just a really awesome, fun listen, with songs such as 'You Don't Know My Mind' and 'Triptina' staying in your head for days after your first listen. It also helps that it is the perfect fireside album for this Christmas!
