- One album from every decade, 60s to now.
The Stone Roses – The Stone Roses
Arctic Monkeys – Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not
This Decade? Hard to say, probably not the best but struck a chord (intended) with me
Bowie – Dark Star

Can’t do it. Too many to choose from

You’ve heard no albums from the 60s and 70s?? There’s a hell of a lot of good stuff you’ve missed then! Like, Hendrix, the Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Can, Sex Pistols, Velvet Underground, Stooges, Iggy, Talking Heads…etc etc… I suggest you do some listening young man! 😀Posted 8 months ago

60’s – Velvet Underground and Nico
70’s – Unknown Pleasures
80’s – The Queen is Dead (I could so easily put George Best in here as it is such an essential part of my growing up, but as DLG says it isn’t their best I’ll bow to his greater knowledge)
90’s – Different Class
00’s – American Idiot
10’s – Too soon to tell……Posted 8 months ago
Can’t do but I can say Van Morrison’s 10 albums from 68-1978 are unparalleled in terms of sustained artistic achievement in music.
Fixed and very much agree handybar. Know he’s very much an acquired taste but people don’t realise what a terrific songwriter he is.
Edit: would also include Them in that category cos that’s where it all started.Posted 8 months agosupersessions9-2Member
Seeing as I started this, I think I’ve got my list together. It’s flipping hard though.
60s – are you experienced
70s – led zep IV
80s – hup
90s – his n hers
00s – funeral
10s – royal blood
first and last one most difficult. First because it’s not a decade I’ve got many albums from. Last for the same reason.
My choices are based on what could always get put on the stereo and I still listen to.Posted 8 months agoCountZeroMember
Bloody difficult to choose from later decades, some will be like sticking a pin in a list, but could change just as easily. So, here goes:
60’s King Crimson – In The Court Of The Crimson King
70’s Talking Heads – 77
80’s Paul Simon – Hearts and Bones
90’s Portishead – Dummy
20’s. Arcade Fire – FuneralPosted 8 months agogallowayboySubscriber
A lot I cannot argue with there – here goes…
60’s Disraeli Gears (Cream)
70’s Lamb lies down on Broadway (Genesis)
80’s Script of the Bridge (Chameleons)
90’s Ladies and Gentleman we are floating in Space (Spiritualized)
2010s Happy Songs for Happy People (Mogwai)
2020’2 Trouble will find me (the National)
Ask again tomorrow and they’ll have changed!Posted 8 months agolisterMember
60s: no idea
70s: Land Speed Record (actually an 80s album but they formed in 79 and it’s my list so my rules!)
80s: Stone Roses
90s: Cooper Blue, no! The Charltans, no! Screamadelica, no! Hmm…this could go on and on. 90s were too good to me.
00s: Hot Fuss (the rest of their stuff is shit though)
10s: Silver Age.Posted 8 months agospevSubscriber
ah it’s not a fair one is it, i’ll change my mind in half an hour, but
60’s Songs of Leonard Cohen
70’s Sabbath Bloody Sabbath – Black Sabbath

90’s Mr Funny Face – Sprung Monkey
2000’s – Angles – Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip

50s (It’s too important to miss out) A Kind of Blue – Miles Davis
60s Five Leaves Left – Nick Drake
70s Songs in the Key of Life – Stevie Wonder (how on earth I’m meant to choose 1 soul album from the 70s I’ve no idea)
80s Sign o’ the Times – Prince
90s Blue Lines – Massive Attack
00s OK Computer – Radiohead (Yes, I’ve moved it forward, but it fits better here)
10s Too earlyPosted 8 months ago
OK, here’s a list. If I wuz gunna play an album NOW from each decade.. so among my favourites..
60s – Stooges
70s – Gang Of Four – Entertainment
80s – Echo & the Bunnymen – Crocodiles (a Bunnymen tribute band was on Later, so would listen to the real thing)
90s – Underworld – Beaucoup Fish
00s – Subtle – A New White
10s – milo – who told you to think??!!?!?!?!Posted 8 months agoMalvern RiderMember
As has been said, it’s an impossible task so have added rules to help me pare it down.
1. Must be albums I’ve played (and continue to play) to death yet seem to refuse to die.
2. Artists must all begin with a random letter. So the letter ‘M’
60s MC5 -Kick Out The JamsPosted 8 months ago
70s Miles Davis – Dark Magus Live at Carnegie Hall
80s Matt Johnson – Burning Blue Soul
90s Make-Up – In Mass Mind
2ks Magma – Trilogie au Trianon
210s Moses Gun Collective – Mercy Mountain
Well having thought about it, my rule is albums which knocked my socks off when they came out and which I continue to play (some more than others).
60s Pink Floyd – Ummagumma
70s Yes – Yes Album
80s Frank Zappa – Them or Us
90s Richard Thompson – Mirror Blue
00s Grinderman – Grinderman
10s New Noise – Frozen River Flows
Though it’s hard not to mention The Beatles or Led Zeppelin or listing Zappa’s entire output.Posted 8 months agohodgyndMember
60’s ..King Crimson ” In The Court Of The Crimson King ”
70’s ( this was the hard decade for me !) ..
Free…The Free Story ..yeah I know it’s a g.hits but works so well as a standalone ..
80’s ..( my least favourite decade ) ..
Smashing Pumpkins ..” Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness”
Gazpacho…” Night ”
Afghan Whigs ..” In Spades ”
Maybe I’ve forgotten something but these would be pretty close to the top of any list ..Posted 8 months ago
