    I have four of those, but the list… Where is “Wish You Were Here” or any Pink Floyd for that matter? “Night at the Opera”? How about “Electric Ladyland”? I’d even disagree with his choice of Beatles album, maybe “Rubber Soul” or “Revolver”?

    But then again, he is young.

    No AC/DC, Zeppelin, Aphex or Public Enemy – bit of a rubbish top 10 albums!

    that list is awful

    This plus (as usual) what CFH said. TBH I have no idea who this guy is anyway. No Rolling Stones, no U2, no Pink Floyd, Eagles, Genesis, Queen, nothing from punk ear (Jam, Clash, Stranglers etc) surely every bloke has to own Bat out of Hell

    FWIW I have 3, Oasis, St Peppers (agreed with above, not the best Beatles album by some margin), Pulp Fiction (compilations are lazy option).

    I have 3 it’s neither the best or the worst list I have seen. I wouldn’t say sergeant pepper is even one of the best Beatles albums. I would put Heroes and Villains in my top ten though! 😉

    No. Absolutely, categorically and unambiguously: No.

    Okay, I’ve given it some thought and, as was intended when they published the article, here’s my “ten albums every bloke (?) should own” list. I’ve invented a new rule for myself where they have to be “proper” albums, no soundtracks, compilations or Greatest Hits. Flame away….

    1) Beach Boys: Pet Sounds
    2) Rolling Stones: Let It Bleed
    3) Led Zeppelin: IV
    4) Nirvana: In Utero
    5) Massive Attack: Blue Lines
    6) Rage Against the Machine: Rage Against the Machine
    7) Public Enemy: It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back
    ‘8) U2: Achtung Baby
    9) Jane’s Addiction: Ritual de los Habitual
    10) The Stone Roses: The Stone Roses

    I’m also, slightly inspired by your man Berry’s choices, trying to come up with the list of best soundtrack albums, so far I’ve got:

    Pulp Fiction
    Singles (crap film, great soundtrack album)
    Judgement Night (crap film, great soundtrack album)
    SFW (see a pattern emerging?)
    Woodstock
    Tommy

    5/10 I think.

    what a load of cock though…

    A bit (qu)easy listening.

    Nothing particularly interesting or challenging.

    Cpt Beefheart? No
    Hendrix? No
    Metallica? No
    Rolling Stones even? No
    Dylan, Cream, Syd Barrat, Jethro Tull? No
    How about (they used to be interesting but not these days) Red Hot Chilli Peppers? No

    Music for teenagers I’d say

    Edit: now Edlong’s list is closer to the mark (apart from Achtung Baby – Live Under A Blood Red Sky please)

    Edlong, do you think adding the Ironman 2 soundtrack to your list would raise or lower my standing with DezB?

    camo16

    Okay, here’s mine…

    1. Alice in Chains: Dirt
    2. Nick Cave: Let Love In
    3. Richard & Linda Thompson: I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight
    4. Metallica: Master Of Puppets
    5. Tom Waits: Closing Time
    6. Bunny Wailer: Blackheart Man
    7. BB King: Live At The Regal
    8. ZZ Top: Tres Hombres
    9. Julee Cruise: Floating Into The Night
    10. Dr John – Remedies/Dr John’s Gumbo

    Actually given I have just under 500 CDs and about the same again of MP3 derived music, I think 10 albums is somewhat limited. I probably listen to more than 10 distinct genres. And I reckon I have a small music collection (though my wife doesn’t)

    Camo – is your smiley wearing cheap sunglasses? Nice touch (I’ll assume it was deliberate)

    Camo – they’ve gone. Did you edit that? Put them back.

    Dammit – I’ve just come back to the thread and it’s too late now. 🙁

    I so wish that 8) was deliberate.

    Over my 10-year career I’ve worked on MTV, 4Music, and hosted the V, Homelands, iTunes and Isle of Wight music festivals. I’ve hosted radio shows on XFM and Capital FM, and like to think I have learnt a thing or two about music.

    And your views are no more valid than anyone elses.

    I HATE music snobs.

    I’ve got 2, neither of which I particulary like anymore.

    Dave Berry has got one of those smug faces you wouldn’t mind punching a couple times, hard! Douch!

    The best soundtrack album is for The Big Lebowski, I’m amazed you weren’t aware of this, I’m pretty sure a memo went round.

    Hmm well I’m a big fan but accept Trout Mask, isn’t going to be everyone’s cup of, er, milk. Maybe it should be in most important albums – Zappa’s Freak Out too.

    The only thing we can agree is that DJ’s list is very odd.

    Pet Sounds and Revolver are clear top candidates.

    Best soundtrack?

    This is Spinal Tap

    “Recorded in Dobly”

    Missed the memo, just checked out the tracklisting, you appear to be very, very right.
