7. Write About Love (2010): Having found sure footing with their previous two releases and apparently imbued with a new sense of purpose and direction, Belle & Sebastian's 2010 Write About Love marks the band's third straight strong release and seemingly sets the stage for limitless highlights going forward. The title track finds Murdoch appealingly channelling the more aggressive side of his '60s fetish, wedding a charging melody to Animals-style blues riffs to create a sound that is almost (dare we say it?) tough. Meanwhile, his surprise duet with Norah Jones, "Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John," could nearly pass for Memphis soul run through a Highlands lens.
