Scant action in albums, save for the miraculous return of Seal (above), who's a sort of Next version of Joan Armatrading. He's also creeping up the singles chart, thanks to everyone forgetting that "Kiss From a Rose" already had its go last year. But then Shaun Ryder had his go half a decade back, and no one's moaning about Black Grape. They're this week's Best Band in the World Ever, knitted together from some assorted Mancunian waifs and strays. So is there room at their inn for Robbie?
