i agree with radiohead, how they arent in this i just do not understand, they have 3 albums that warrant a top 10 place. and no massive attack?
plus..the arctic monkeys..why shouldnt they be there? i see no reason why it cant be in the top 10. so what if its only a week old. and its excellent aswell. disagree with the sex pistols being in the top 10 at all, let alone bloody number 4.

The same could be said of Elastica. They're about as good as one another.

One of the most eagerly awaited albums at the time I remember the hype about it almost a year before it came out

I didn't say that. I said they were about as good as each other, it really isn't difficult to read.

The plague generated more public excitement than the Arctic Monkeys, doesn't mean it was a good thing.

and it matched the sales figures "whatever people say i am thats what im not" has amassed in a week yes? im not playing the whole "sales figures means a band is better then another band" game, im simply saying why cant an album that so many people have obviously bought and like be in there. (note thats to urban, not franscar)

You wouldn`t be going for the sales = quality thing would you?

If people can still recognise the distinctive bass line of one of the Arctic Monkeys terrificly varied hits in ten years time, then maybe, maybe they'll be better than Elastica.

you mistake me urban, im going for the "listen to the album, then state its quality" approach. i was proving a point that elastica had nothing of the impacvt the monkeys have had...using sales figures.
