Re: Your ten top albums...
OMG what a difficult question. Especially for a dinosaur like me! I can think of 10 albums that have really marked me, but I will put them in more or less chronological order rather than order of preference I think. OK - here goes:

The White Album - The Beatles
Tubular Bells - Mike Oldfield
In the Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson
Tarkus - Emerson Lake and Palmer
A Trick of the Tail - Genesis
The Song Remains the Same - Led Zeppelin
Animals - Pink Floyd
Regatta de Blanc - The Police
Gone to Earth - David Sylvian
and you see... I am running out of space already. So I will miss out most of the 80s and go straight to

I told you this was difficult

Re: Your ten top albums...
Oh fucking hell. I tried this with a friend the other week. We got to something like 35 really significant albums each..

here goes, in no particular order (except for Pet Sounds, which is actually, without doubt, the best album ever recorded. If you disagree, it's just because you haven't 'got it' yet. Seriously. Give it a few more listens. There's not a single note played through the entire record that could have been better in any way. Sheer pop perfection.) - pretty much just the first ones that come in to my head. I'm not really very sure beyond the first 5.

1. The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
2. David Bowie - Low
3. Underworld - Second Toughest in the Infants
4. Khonnor - Handwriting
5. Tom McRae - Just Like Blood
6. Radiohead - The Bends
7. Stars - Set Yourself on Fire
8. Lightning Seeds - Jollification
9. Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures
10. Six. by Seven - The Closer You Get

Hmm. I'm not entirely happy with that, but it's a start. The top 5 here are all definitely in my top 10. But I could quite happily swap Unknown Pleasures for Closer, and I just know there's about a dozen cracking albums that I've temporarily forgotten about.

Anyway, the moral of this story is LISTEN TO PET SOUNDS.

Re: Your ten top albums...

Autechre - LP5
Polmo Polpo - Like Hearts Swelling
Chemical Brothers - Dig Your Own Hole
Aphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works Vol. 2

this is what happens when you get really REALLY into music at a young age and you dont have the funds to support a broad swath of music genres. it's not going to be awesomely unique or adventurous but it's still going to be damn important to you. i think there only two albums from this decade on here. tsk tsk.

close calls:

Avalanches - Since i Left You
Sigur ros - Agaetis Byrjun
The Books - Lemon of Pink
Bjork - Homogenic
Air - Moon Safari
Massive Attack - Mezzanine
Aphex Twin - RDJ Album
Burial - Untrue
Mr. Oizo - Moustache(Half a Scissor)
M83 - Dead Cities, Red Seas, Lost Ghosts.

dj spooky - creation rebel
goldfrapp - 7th tree
the changelings - astronomica
band of horses - everything all the time
funkadelic - maggot brain
catherine braslavsky - hildegard von bingen: the marriage of the heavens and the earth
scientist - scientist meets the spaced invaders
atlas sound - the let the blind blah blah blah... (most pretentious title evar!!!)
fuck buttons - street horrsing
