De Stiji over Elephant? Weird choice... And I'm disappointed that Nirvana got such a low placing. This is the first time I've looked at your choices in full (couldn't be bothered to look back) there are some good choices in there but then there are the slightly odd ones. Good call on The Beastie Boys though.

Well I explained why I prefer De Stiji over Elephant in the post , although it was pretty close.

Nirvana got a bloody good rating to say i`ve not listened to that album in 8 years.It`s more there for nostalgia purposes than anything. I see very little in it these days

If you play Nevermind to much then it does start to grate, but I've done the good thing and only popped it into my CD player every now and again. I think the rule of only allowing one album per band is a bit pointless-there could be a band who have released a lot of fantastic albums and are missing out on this prestigious prize!

I hate lists with the same bands mentioned over & over again.

I find them to be more fair, showing the real talented artists.

I should think people would find De Stijl better than Elephant.Elephant plays like a dumbbell, with a great begining and a great end but a terrible minor midsection. The folk run in the middle there isn't as impressive and De Stijl's "Hello Operator" and "Little Bird" are more emotive blues tracks than any guitar works (with moot exception to some solos on Elephant and "truth doesn't make a noise" is one of the stripes most well put together tracks. The lyrics are amazing.

Theres only one track I don't like ok De Stijl, theres maybe three I skip on elephant.

10. BLUR - MODERN LIFE IS RUBBISH (1992)

For Tomorrow
Advert
Colin Zeal
Pressure on Julian
Star shaped
Blue jeans
Chemical World
Intermission
Sunday Sunday
Oily Water
Miss America
Villa Rosie
Coping
Turn it up
Resigned
Commercial Break

This is the album for me that started Britpop.I missed out on the Roses and Suede had more of the Bowie /Roxy Music thing going on.This was the first album I got that bought back the spirit of the Kinks & Small Faces songs my mother used to play me.In fact the first song on the album For Tomorrow is basically Waterloo Sunset for the 90s evoking the same imagery & themes of that song.What I like about this album is it`s a transitional Blur album.There are throwbacks to their showgazing Leasure days . Oily Water , Villa Rosie and the album closer Resigned are very reminicent of the psychadelic pop they were doing off that album.But you also have songs like Colin Zeal & Pressure on Julian which is very much the direction the band would take with the Parklife album with Damon Albarn writing upbeat pop songs in a third person perspective.
This album is also a good indicator of the tension between Damon Albarn`s pop experimentation and Graham Coxon`s love of fast hard rock songs which would ultimatly end up with the two parting company.Advert & Coping , two fast paced hard rock songs with Coxon`s guitar tearing into them as in the same mould as Song 2 (Without the annoying Woohooos)that I have always thought Blur are better at doing than most bands of the Britpop era.Sunday Sunday is your classic 60s British pop song that reminds me of Lazy Sunday Afternoon by The Small Faces and not just because of the lyrical content either.
The whole album sounds like to me as Damon Albarns tribute to British pop music , It`s all in here. Pop , Rock , psychadelia , ballads it doesn`t try to hide it`s influences, it embraces them and made them relevant in the 1990s.And a whole new genre of British pop bands emerged from it.
Oh yeah , and if you own the American version of this album it also includes the single only Popscene , my favourite Blur song of all time.Lucky bastards
