"Protest Songs" got better reviews than Encore so I expected it to feature

I mostly bought the remastered Two Tone releases this year.

My favourite re-release of 2021 would have to be Double Barrel. Described as "a bit of a mishmash of Barker and Collins’ solo work with a few “proper” duo recordings", on the Louder Than War website, it is still described as pretty much essential. I have to agree.

My favourite new release of 2021 is the Manics Ultra Vivid Lament. It only got to 164 in the MOJO list, but I have been loving it. Took me ages to turn over to Side Two, as I was enjoying listening to Side One so much.

I haven't heard anything from the new Manic's album. I'll have to investigate. I find it hard to keep up with what's going on these days. Most of the bands on the list were people I'd never heard of

The Sleaford Mods album , Spare Ribs, was good but not their best. I prefer their more in your face stuff. This album was almost mellow by Sleaford Mods standards.
