Personally, the Buzzcocks' (Devoto-less) debut could be my favourite first wave British punk (-pop) album, boasting some all-round great rock songs with such great instrumentation that it lets the whiny angst in the lyrics be put on the back burner for the listener. Worth it for the last track alone. Terrific musicianship and songwriting is here for all to see, in the form of another shining example of Brit punk at its best.
The best bits: No Reply, I Don't Mind, Moving Away From the Pulsebeat
I never got round to this; the 'Singles Going Steady' and Spiral Scratch (he was right to leave but Devoto Buzzcocks were just a dream) would make my top 100 though easily. Mr. Shelley is one of the formative pop songwriters of the era, the sexually-frustrated spotty-teen angst is all part of the appeal!

I've had the album for years - I thought you'd have ripped it off me ages ago. If you want a link, just let us know

76. Madness - Absolutely (1980)

You can't not love Madness really can you? And I'm proud to say the first tune I heard in 2008 was Baggy Trousers live on Jools Holland. Ah, good times! The album... it's a really fun, energetic and bouncy work of ska with added pop and rock 'n' roll spices, and one of the essentials of the genre in my opinion.
The best bits: Baggy Trousers, E.R.N.I.E., Solid Gone

75. 10cc - The Original Soundtrack (1975)

Alright, it's the only 10cc album I have, but I still think it's worth its place in this particular list. As an album it puts prog and the soft-rock inclinations of Steely Dan through the mangle and comes up with some very good results indeed, and not only that but I'm Not In Love is a masterpiece. This definitely has its moments, but unfortunately the whole album isn't quite as strong as its highlights, so its a well-earned place in this particular bracket.
The best bits: I'm Not In Love, Brand New Day, Life Is a Minestrone

74. The Pop Group - Y (1979)

And here we have an album that's great for all the opposite reasons. Recorded as it is by a bunch of geezers who had no idea how to play their instruments (except for their drummer), it's basically a glorious mess of funky post-punk which uses the odd disco rhythm here and there (as on She Is Beyond Good and Evil, one of the classics of the movement). Very difficult to truly love, but naturally it clicks after more than one listen, and it's truly one of the most forward-thinking albums of the time.
The best bits: She Is Beyond Good and Evil, We Are Time, the Boys From Brazil

73. Air - Moon Safari (1998)

Another item of electronica/trip-hop here and another one of France's finest musical exports, the moods and textures of this album really are quite something, again managing to keep your undivided attention throughout the chilled out ambience which dominates the record with some great bass rhythms (Talisman is basically worthwhile ambience by numbers). Another one of those downtime albums which make for a pretty important part of any music library.
The best bits: Sexy Boy, Talisman, You Make It Easy

You can't really go wrong with Moon Safari can you? I don't know many people who DON'T like it. Good shout on The Pop Group too. A great album and if you have Madness in here then I hope you have the Specials debut too!

Moon Safari's just sheer class. Great music to just kick back and unwind to. As for the Specials, I hate to spoil future inclusions in the list, so I'll just say you'll find out soon enough

I'd like to refute that statement in a mature and dignified manner

Get on em-ess-en btw. I'll be online in a bit.

Nice one Bulldog. I caught 10cc live September 5th 1977 at Brisbane's Festival hall. One of the tightest bands I have ever seen. Fine musicians and underrated IMO. I have to admit to not listening to them in many a long year though. IIRC there was a song called Blackmail that had a really good guitar solo.
