#16: "Echoes" by Will Young
THIS was the album I always wanted Will Young to make. There is no doubt in anyone's mind that Will Young has one of the most incredible recording voices of this generation and when you bring in Richard X to wave his magic wand around in the studio, what do you get? Electronic pop genius. "Jealousy" proved that Will still has those vocal chops we fell in love with on Pop Idol whilst album tracks "Lie Next To Me", "Come On" and "Losing Myself" made "Echoes" by Will Young one of the most important electronic pop albums of 2011.
