I agree with the rest, but I didn't really like Hanoi Rocks.

One of these days someone will give me a good reason why this band were never huge , because i`ve never been able to understand why not
Its definitely an understandable question. They were a great band. I think I'll go with the "ahead of their time" Excuse, which seems to work in scenarios like this

And the ahead of their time excuse makes me think they only had the mustard when given momentum by a movement.

I wasn`t being totally serious.

I looked at Master Of Puppets and said to myself 'do I like this album more than the 100 i`ve got listed?'.
The answer was no , so it`s not on here.

80. Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Orange (1994)

My first reaction on hearing this was 'What the **** is this?????'
I still think that now.But then i`ve always had a soft spot for rough around the edges raw blues rock , even more so when you have a lead singer putting on a cod elvis voice.This is just pure fun with great riffs.

Favourite songs - Bellbottoms , Blues X Man , Greyhound


79. The High Llamas - Hawaii (1996)

77 minutes & 29 songs full of lush strings , beautiful melodies & rich orchestral arrangements.One of the most underrated bands of the 90s which is a shame but understandable really. They were just as good as other bands like them such as Mercury Rev & The Flaming Lips but they lacked direction & never really came out with that killer album. This is about as close as they got to one. I`d love to put it higher as they were such a great band but there`s a bit too much filler on it to do that.But it is a good record.

Favourite songs - Sparkle Up , Literature Is Fluff , Cuckoo's Out


78. Dinosaur Jr - You`re Living All Over Me (1987)

This album sounds like sh*t , but not even the awful production that sounds like it was recorded on a tape recorder in someones bedroom (A couple songs were).But the quality of the songs shine through,in fact the best the band ever recorded.They made one good album after this (Bug) but then Lou Barlow left & the major labels came , but to be honest to me they were never the same again & just became a bunch of also rans on the grunge scene.Which was a shame because on the strength of this they desereved much better.

Favourite songs - Little Fury Things , Kracked , Raisins


77. Pavement - Wowee Zowee (1995)

Now i`m not the biggest Pavement fan by a long shot as i`ve always found them a bit hit & miss, but when they`re good they`re very good. And I just love this album because how the diversity on it.The great thing about this album is you never quite know whats coming up next. There`s pop , jazz , folk , country , but all of it recognisable as Pavement & none of it sounding out of place.
I remember reading an article in the Daily Mirror a few years ago , they listed this album as the coolest album ever made. It totally surprised me to see it included , let alone being named no. 1 , but having heard it I could see why someone would think that.

Favourite songs - Rattled By The Rush , Fight This Generation , Half A Canyon

76. Mercury Rev - Deserters Songs (1998)

I have to admit this totally blew me away when I first heard it.I`d heard Mercury Rev before but to be honest didn`t think much too them.I didn`t feel they had any songs , they just seemed to be self indulgent wank & a mish mash of half ideas & trying to be clever by throwing in as many instruments as they could. But i`d heard a couple of songs on this album & could hardly beleive I was listening to the same band & then went out & bought it. And it was just as wonderful as I hoped. I think I must have had this on my stereo for months. They finally made an effort to write songs , and bloody good they were too.

Favourite songs - Holes , Opus 40 , Delta Sun Bottleneck Stomp


75. DJ Shadow - Endtroducing (1996)

One of my biggest regrets ever was that it took me 6 years to buy this work of genius. I`d see it in the shop , but always overlooked it in favour of whatever current indie guitar darlings were around at the time. Then I picked up the UNKLE album of which DJ Shadow was involved in & because I loved it so much decided to finally get this. And I was not disappointed. It is one of the very few albums I can pick up & listen to the whole way through. To me it`s like a journey and the time just passes by.In fact I used to listen to this album at work everyday. This album pisses over the arguement that people who use samples are not real musicians.This is the most original peice of music i`d heard in years.

Favourite songs - Building Steam With a Grain of Salt , Mutual Slump (With Bjork), What Does Your Soul Look Like


74. Faith No More - The Real Thing (1989)

Nirvana killed hair metal?
Nope , as far as I go it was this album that did that.
After I heard this the likes of Poison had no appeal to me whatsoever. This spoke to me like no other album around at the time (save Janes Addiction). It was loud it was funky & it rocked like a bastard.
Many people might not realise the significance of the cover of Sabbath`s War Pigs either. Back then Sabbath were about the uncoolest band you could ever like, so it was good to see them cover a Sabbath song and at the same time really piss off the indie press that were loving them at the time.Although to be honest i`ve never really liked the cover itself , I feel their own material was much much better.

Favourite songs - From Out Of Nowhere , Epic , The Real Thing


73. The Kinks - Village Green Preservation Society (1968)

I only bought this album in February , I suck.
I can`t really say much about this , Ray Davies legend blah blah blah. What I will say is I think it`s only now that people are realising the influence that this album had on British music. I would love to see this album towards the top of album polls that are made replacing that overrated heap of crap known as Sgt Pepper. I just like the imagery & the realness of the Kinks songs and I still think a lot of them are still relevent today.

Favourite songs - Village Green Preservation Society , Picture Book , Big Sky
