I'm more offended that you put her before Kraftwerk. And I like Madonna.

EDIT: Just noticed the artist-album thing. It seems counter-intuitive (though probably Excel-lent), but I'll edit it later, since I will revamp the list anyway.


Yeah, it's just down to Excel really. When you c+p lists using the site's auto-list thingy into Excel they appear without the numbers, and it's just quicker to sort them album first when you have artists with more than one album voted for.

The only album by Ms Ciccone I'd even consider putting into a top 20 would be Like A Prayer. One or two of the others could possibly make a top 50, but that's about it.

I thought this was gonna be really hard but (as well as sticking to one album per artist rule, and, erm, forgetting quite a few) I managed to streamline it fairly simply by choosing records that have remained in my consciousness (and heart, dammit) for a number of years, and have been worthy of regular re-visits, rather than more recent ones which, though they may be just as good if not better than some of the ones in the list, need a few more years on the clock to truly warrant 'favourite status'. So no Skying just yet but it might be number one in a decade.

1. In On The Killtaker - Fugazi
2. Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain - Pavement
3. Loveless - My Bloody Valentine
4. In Utero - Nirvana
5. Doolittle - Pixies
6. Rated R - Queens Of The Stone Age
7. Automatic For The People - REM
8. Relationship Of Command - At The Drive-In
9. Mercury - American Music Club
10. Come On Die Young - Mogwai
11. Alligator - The National
12. Screamadelica - Primal Scream
13. Powder Burns - Twilight Singers
14. Antics - Interpol
15. Pills 'n' Thrills 'n' Bellyaches - Happy Mondays
16. Angel Dust - Faith No More
17. Disintegration - The Cure
18. Black Love - The Afghan Whigs
19. Spiderland - Slint
20. The Holy Bible - Manic Street Preachers

I'm going to set the deadline at April 30, which should give people enough time to get lists in. There doesn't seem to be very many lists this year though, which is a shame.

But I have a COLOURED LINK IN BOLD TYPE.


I tend to avoid mass PMing people (partly cos everyone's PMs seem to be broken), so I've never quite been able to figure out how best to get people to vote without being an irritant. All I can really do is tell you to TELL YOUR FRIENDS and tell them to tell their friends.

Mixtapes should be fine as long as they've had an official release of some kind (though I guess length is a restriction in the same way I can't allow EPs/singles). RE mash-ups it's dependent on the specific release - I've ruled out compilations but I would still consider something like the Grey Album to be an album. Honestly, I'm not going to be very fussy about eligibility so I wouldn't worry about it.
