Q Awards: The Album features two-discs' worth of rock, pop and electronica by artists acclaimed by the British music magazine. Disc one deals with songs by more mainstream acts, including U2's "Beautiful Day," Coldplay's "Yellow," David Gray's "Babylon" and Radiohead's "Karma Police." Disc two digs slightly deeper, offering cuts such as Clinic's "The Second Line," Badly Drawn Boy's "Disillusion," Muse's "Muscle Museum" and Death in Vegas' "Aisha." The collection also offers a nice but spare smattering of electronica, including Air's "Playground Love," the Chemical Brothers "Hey Boy Hey Girl" and Fatboy Slim's "Bird of Prey." While most of the bigger acts on Q Awards: The Album will be pretty well-known by many American music fans, the less prominent bands, like Supernaturals, Embrace, Toploader and Idlewild, could make the collection worthwhile for curious Anglophiles looking to broaden their horizons. Despite its slightly dated feel, Q Awards: The Album is a fairly entertaining collection of the music popular in the U.K. in the early '00s.
