Disregarding Manic Street Preachers which I don't know about that's a pretty kicka$$ list.
I love that Smiths album.

I still have the original cassette version of Too Fast For Love somewhere , it`s great.The bass is so high in the mix it almost caused damage to my speakers whenever it was played loud.

Shame it was 'remastered' for CD

I think they are good choices, apart from The Libertines at number 10. They don't even deserve to make the list. I'm not saying they're bad-they are quite good. It's just that they in no way deserve to be in the same breath as The Beatles or Queen.

Yes, and often the 'remastered' versions never sound better then the original those Queen ones, for example I LOVE Queen but the remasters, UGH!

*waits to see if maybe any Art of Noise or Plasmatics will appear*

24. THE AUTEURS - AFTER MURDER PARK (1996)

The Auteurs are a bit of an oddity , After releasing 2 acclaimed albums & generally being thought of as the next big thing (They were one of the bands that appeared on the famous 'Britpop' cover of Select magazine in 1992 , which is generally considered to be the launch of the movement)They released this album , their darkest most intense album yet and it does nothing more than return to them to obscurity.Which is a shame really because it`s the best album they ever made.I guess one of the reasons why was because they didn`t really fit the Britpop asthetic when this came out.With Steve Albini`s production , Alice Readman`s chello giving every song a moody atmosphere and Luke Haines stinging lyrics , this is a million miles away from your average Parklife lite albums that were saturating the market at the time.Luke Haines can knock out a good rock song , in fact the album opener Light Aircraft On Fire' opens up with the lyrics "When you cut your lover's slack, you'll get a f*cking monster back.", there`s no let up with this guy.But it`s really the slower songs that shine here.Songs like Child Brides , Everything You Say Will Destroy You , Unsolved Child Murders and Dead Sea Navagators are the most brooding , chilling songs i`ve heard this side of Joy Division.
Interpol? don`t make me laugh.


Favourite Songs - Unsolved Child Murders , Tombstone , Everything You Say Will Destroy You , New Brat In Town


23. NEW YORK DOLLS - NEW YORK DOLLS (1973)

I have a DVD of the New York Dolls playing Jetboy on The Old Grey Whistle Test back in 1974.It`s probably the worst live performance I have ever seen , they are just awful.But you know what , it`s f*cking great.
But that one performance sums up why I would take attitude over technical ability any day of the week.They are barely holding the song together but it`s like a car crash , you can`t take your eyes off it and you can`t ignore them .The New York Dolls are basically The Rolling Stones cranked up to 11 , A distorted f*cked up version of what the Stones would have ended up like if the whole band had become drug addicts & went much too far with the make up.The songs are cheap, tacky and throwaway , yet they are so much fun you find yourself going back again & again to listen to them. This is what just how glam rock should sound like , not the limp wristed ballads that plagued 80s glam rock.This is a throwback to all the things that rock n roll was originally about. To be loud , to be shocking and to not give a f*ck.And this album is all those things , with a ton of lipstick on top.

Favourite Songs - Personality Crisis , Looking For A Kiss , Vietnamese Baby , Jetboy



22. THE CLASH - SANDINISTA! (1980)

As i`ve already made a thread expressing my love for this album I guess it`ll be easier just to repeat what I said about it in there in the hope that just one person buys this wonderful album.....

I don`t care what anybody says , i ADORE this album. I don`t think it`s a masterpiece by any means , I don`t even think it`s the Clash`s best album. But to have such a big hit as London Calling and then follow it up with a 6 sided album full of dub, electronica, hip-hop,folk, ballads , motown , soul, skiffle, gospel and everything in between , well quite honestly that takes balls , and to release it at the same price as a normal album , so much for the punks calling them sell outs.
A lot of people hate it , but hey who cares what they think , some of the above mentioned punks even dismissed this as 'prog rock' when it came out. But I would rather have a band who tries & fails than just rehash the same 3 chords of their first album over & over again. Yes it`s huge , yes it`s bloated but strip it away theres a fantastic album under it , even better than London Calling in my opinion if you take best 12 or 13 songs on it . But if you do that you lose the whole fun of this album.This is a great album for putting on & just getting lost in , you just never know whats coming next , even if you`ve played it a lot.
Strummer said before he died there isn`t a single thing on this album he would change , I totally agree with him.

There , wish all these entries were that easy

Favourite Songs - The Magnificent Seven , Somebody Got Murdered , The Call Up , Washington Bullets



21. ALICE COOPER - BILLION DOLLAR BABIES (1973)

Ahhh , now I have a real soft spot for this album , in fact the only probable reason it`s not on the top 10 is because i`ve not listened to it in a while. In 1973 when this came out The Alice Cooper Band were one of the biggest in the world , even bigger than Led Zeppelin.And this was the album that arrived at the pinnacle of that , after that the boozing & the constant touring affected things and it was downhill all the way, but at least they got this wonderful record out before that happened.Like most Alice Cooper albums there`s plenty of horror , but this horror is more true to life.This is social commentary Alice Cooper style.It`s about the horror of having too much money (Billion dollar babies , Generation Landslide , Elected )The horror of being outcast (No More Mr Nice Guy)Even the horror of going to the dentist(Unfinished Sweet).Production wise this album is spot on too , the album opener Hello Hooray has a Phil Spector wall of sound feel to it , but not quite enough to take the edge off it and then there`s Donovan sharing singing duties with Alice on the title track.Easily Alice`s best work & for me one of the best classic rock albums of all time.In fact looking at what came after it`s kind of sad he/they didn`t call it a day after this came out.

Favourite Songs - Hello Hooray , Billion Dollar Babies , Elected , Generation Landslide
