  • Ten best albums of all time
  • CountZero

    So I had to compile an additional ten, ‘cos ten wasn’t enough:
    Portishead – Dummy
    Talk Talk – It’s My Life
    Maria McKee – Life Is Sweet
    Eddie Reader – Driftwood
    ‘Til Tuesday – Coming Up Close
    XTC – Apple Venus
    Yes – Close To The Edge
    Arcade Fire – Funeral
    David Byrne & Brian Eno – My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts
    Gerry Rafferty – City To City

    There are still others I could include, maybe go to a top fifty… πŸ˜€


    [list]What’s surprised me is that I’ve liked at least 2 or 3 of the albums from everybody’s post. So here’s mine in no order and I’m not counting

    The National ~ Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers
    Miles Davis ~ Kind of Blue
    Joni Mitchell ~ Blue
    Neil Young ~ Everybody Knows his is Nowhere
    Lana del Ray ~ Born to Die
    Van Morrison ~ Astral Weeks
    Fleetwood Mac ~ Rumours
    The Wilderness of Manitoba ~ When You Left the Fire
    Lanterns on the Lake ~ Gracious Tide Take Me Home
    Blonde on Blonde ~ Bob Dylan
    Low ~ Things We Lost in the Fire
    Rolling Sones ~ Sticky Fingers
    R.E.M. ~ Murmur


    That was fairly difficult. when can we list 20?

    Leftfield – Leftism
    Orbital – Snivilisation
    LCD sound system – β€œ ”
    Amy Winehouse – Back to black
    Chemical Brothers – Exit planet dust
    Rage against the machine β€œ self title”

    Alice in Chains – Dirt
    Neil Young – Decade (sorry to have a comp, but if we can have live albums, then why not?)
    Mastodon – Crack the Skye
    Poison Idea – Feel the Darkness

    I strictly limited myself to one album per band (otherwise Powerslave by Iron Maiden would have been in there too) and I am sure there are others that could go in there, but this is off the top of my head.


    Here’s ten from me:

    The Offspring – Smash
    Green Day – American Idiot
    Nirvana – Nevermind
    The Smiths – Hatful of Hollow
    The The – infected
    U2 – The Joshua Tree
    Big Country – The Crossing
    Alter Bridge – AB III
    The Union – Sirens Song
    George Dalaras & Dimitra Galani in concert (an obscure Greek album but it is one of my favourites!)

    Lastly, this is a newly released first album that I can see making it into my top 10 one day:
    The Virginmarys – King of Conflict


    The Verve-A Northern Soul
    Lo Fi Allstars-How to Operate With A Blown Mind
    Orbital-Brown Album
    Radiohead-Kid A
