Foals - Spanish Sahara
Song: Foals, "Spanish Sahara"
Context: NME's top song of the year is, as the Brits say, a load of donkey bollocks. They're trying to do that LCD Soundsystem thing where a seven-minute song has five minutes of build-up to two minutes of brilliance but they're not near pulling it off. There are 14 songs better than this on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
