I have to agree. Especially about Led Zeppelin. Everyone thinks they're some sort of rock Gods when you could just go back a couple decades and find all their riffs being played by great bluesmen. At least Pink Floyd had Piper at the Gates of Dawn which was boundary pushing.

Led Zeppelin took lots of different influences and yes a lot from blues but most bands borrow ideas older music. It does not downgrade them, they still made some of the greatest rock albums ever imo and a lot of other people will tell you the same.

Come on this is the NME we`re talking about here.

You have as much chance of seeing Led Zep on one of their lists as you have the Nolan Sisters

I'm cool with influencing. I'm even alright with influencing to the point of near direct ripoff. But a direct ripoff I can't handle, and for Led Zeppelin that was more than a couple of their riffs. Especially among the hits.

Do you think for this list they meant bands that were, in some way or another, Brittish?

I don't know im trying to help them out here, and btw, that Arctic monkeys song is aweful. Can someone tell me why the English love their dance music so much?

As in bands with British citizens as members.

If you're on about "I bet you look good on the dancefloor" then it aint that great. I downloaded the demos off of their website and loved the lyrics to Scummy (they changed the name when they released the song) & A Certain Romance. They're good but I haven't heard the album yet so I don't know whether they deserve to be number 5 or not.

In fact, I'm only 20 and haven't been around long enough to hear most of the albums in the "top 10". I really think that best of all time lists have absolutely zero relevance to mordern music and often get stuck in the past. I'd like to see them do a list of the best British albums in the past 5 or 10 years as it may help single out some albums that I'd want to listen to.

Anyway, what makes one album better than another? Every half-decent album is great in its own way and I'm pretty sure that I wont like most of the stuff in that list. Besides, NME is sh!t and where the hell is A's Hi Fi Serious album? [/RANT]

EDIT: sorry, first post happens to be a big rant. And I forgot to say hi. Hi!

Yes, the bands that probably influenced most of the modern bands you listen to have no relevance at all.

Yes, BUT no music written today will ever influence more bands than they ever did because they were treading new ground. If we stuck with the theory that influencing the most bands defines the greatest albums then the list is unlikely to change year on year = no relevance to modern music.
