Here are the highlights :


13. Parralox “RECOVERY”
Not usually one for cover albums (however, there is still one more of those yet to appear in this countdown), in 2013 Australia’s own Parralox proved that a covers collection wasn’t something that had to be boring. Their exquisite take on Parson’s “Eye In The Sky” is as wonderful as their covers of Madonna’s “Physical Attraction” and ABBA’s “The Day Before You Came”. Nonetheless it’s Front 242′s “Headhunter” which takes the cake as the best cover here, banging away in just over six minutes of dance-floor perfection that stands as an even bigger track than the 1988 original. Parralox have always been a massive favourite of mine and this could be their finest produced record to date. With a new vocalist set to join the group for 2014 and original releases planned in the foreseeable future, there’s no doubt in my mind this next album will exceed all expectations.
KEY TRACKS: “Headhunter”, “Physical Attraction”, “Eye In The Sky”.


24. The Sound Of The Crowd “LIFE IS CALLING”
This pure electro side-project from Parralox genius and Melbourne’s very own John von Ahlen, under the guise of The Sound of the Crowd, is a rather astonishing debut. There’s a Stock/Aitken/Waterman throwback on the icy “Companion”, which sounds like it could have slotted onto the end of Mel & Kim’s first album F.L.M. quite comfortably, yet as a whole the record is a lot more underground than what we’ve come to expect from Parralox. Keep an ear out for Nic Toupee, an absolute living legend who is also one of my all-time favourite Melbourne DJs, who lends vocals to the big finale “Conclusion”, which is my choice-cut selection from Life Is Calling.

KEY TRACKS: “Conclusion”, “Wildlife”, “Companion”.
