As ever, the appeal of this latest SingStar depends on your feelings towards the track list. The highlights of the 30-song line-up? Kaiser Chiefs, The Killers, Sam Sparro and Kings of Leon, plus many more bands bludgeoned into your ears by Radio 1.

And guess what? You’re there, you’re lost and it’s raining blood.
