3. "Dance Wiv Me" (Dizzee Rascal featuring Calvin Harris and Chrome) 9.428571429

Released in 2008 as a Dizzee Rascal single with guest vocals from Calvin and Chrome in the chorus, it became a massive #1 - the first of Calvin's career. The song was produced by Calvin and is as much his song as it is Dizzee's really, which led to it being included on the album.

It's between I'm Not Alone and Flashback for the #1, one of which has an average of above 10!

2. "Flashback" 9.714285714

The third single from 2009 is our runner up! The song featured vocals from Ayah Marar and reached #18 in the UK Singles Chart which wasn't bad going for a post-album single.

I'll leave Dan to reveal the inevitable winner tongue.gif

1. "I'm Not Alone" 10.42857143

Unsurprisingly this is the favourite! I'm Not Alone was released as the first track of the album and gave Calvin his first solo UK #1. It saw him go in a new direction with an anthemic trance influenced breakdown. Ten years later it's still one of his most highly regarded tracks on Buzzjack and is certainly the best track of this era.

Full results:
1. "I'm Not Alone" 10.42857143
2. "Flashback" 9.714285714
3. "Dance Wiv Me" (Dizzee Rascal featuring Calvin Harris and Chrome) 9.428571429
4. "You Used to Hold Me" 9.142857143
5. "Ready for the Weekend" 8.142857143
6. "Greatest Fear" 8.142857143
7. "Stars Come Out" 7.714285714
8. "Blue" 7.428571429
9. "The Rain" 7.285714286
10. "5iliconeator" 6.357142857
11. "Relax" 6.214285714
12. "Yeah Yeah Yeah La La La" 6.142857143
13. "Limits" 6
14. "Worst Day" (featuring Izza Kizza) 5.714285714
15. "Burns Night" 5.571428571

While we wait for a new Calvin single (it's been ages!) we may as well have another album rate shortly. Leave your suggestions for which album we should look back at next.

I'm Not Alone is still one of his best songs to date, glad it's done so well here!

As for suggestions on another album to look back on, I would definitely say Motion! It's coming up to five years since the album was released and I still think it's one of his two best albums (the other being 18 Months).
