Albums with no duds through the 60s,  70s, 80s,  90s and 00s

A Listmania! list by Todpete "machnew" (UK)
 
Pearl
1.  Pearl by Janis Joplin
The list author says:
  "She may just have one volume, but she knows how to sing. 'Me and Bobby McGee' and 'A Woman Left Lonely' are just amazing."
£13.55   Used & New from: £0.09
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (25 customer reviews)

Innervisions
2.  Innervisions by Stevie Wonder
The list author says:
  "One of only two Stevie Wonder albums with no turkeys. Many classics on here, but my lesser-known fave is 'Jesus Children of America'."
£7.60   Used & New from: £1.72
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (69 customer reviews)

Station To Station
3.  Station To Station by David Bowie
The list author says:
  "The best pop album ever. Forget what they say about its dark side, this is just sublime music. 'Stay' should be the classic song of  male apprehensions."
£9.33   Used & New from: £4.29
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (103 customer reviews)

Aja
4.  Aja by Steely Dan
The list author says:
  "This was when Steely Dan stopped being a better than average 70s rock band, and became the only outfit ever to merge the best bits of jazz and rock successfully. And how successfully."
£5.64   Used & New from: £2.79
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (54 customer reviews)

Lodger
5.  Lodger by David Bowie
The list author says:
  "Bowie's overlooked masterpiece, where he got the guitarist to play drums and vice versa because they were first and foremost 'artists'. Pretentious? Yes. But all good pop music is."
£9.93   Used & New from: £3.56
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (33 customer reviews)

Breakfast In America
6.  Breakfast In America by Supertramp
The list author says:
  "All of Supertramp's other albums are at least partly given over to the very  worst of 1970s concept rock. This, their most commercial outing, is not. Just  full of good tunes."
£9.24   Used & New from: £2.92
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (94 customer reviews)

Fear Of Music
7.  Fear Of Music by Talking Heads
The list author says:
  "Why does everyone go on about 'Remain in Light'? This is the Heads' best album from their early years, especially 'Cities'."
£6.64   Used & New from: £3.46
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

Gaucho
8.  Gaucho by Steely Dan
The list author says:
  "Where Steely Dan improved on Aja - if that was possible. Ultimately cool jazz and funky rock."
£7.49   Used & New from: £2.06
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (53 customer reviews)

Hotter Than July
9.  Hotter Than July by Stevie Wonder
The list author says:
  "I read a review of this album that said there was nothing worthwhile on it.  Must have been listening to a different album..."
£4.99   Used & New from: £1.75
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Sulk
10.  Sulk by Associates
The list author says:
  "Unfortunately this re-release CD includes a lot of junk from the cutting room floor that wasn't on the original LP. So miss out Bap de  la Bap, Nude Spoons and everything after 18 Carat Love Affair..."
£41.48   Used & New from: £6.95
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (29 customer reviews)

The Dreaming
11.  The Dreaming by Kate Bush
The list author says:
  "A commercial disaster, but an artistic zenith for Kate Bush, and always worth listening to."
£20.03   Used & New from: £3.87
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (89 customer reviews)

Ocean Rain
12.  Ocean Rain by Echo & The Bunnymen
The list author says:
  "I'm not a huge Bunnymen fun. But this album is just, simply,  great. I also like the blase version of All You Need is Love this CD has as an extra."
£5.93   Used & New from: £1.31
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Cupid & Psyche 85
13.  Cupid & Psyche 85 by Scritti Politti
The list author says:
  "The best album from the man with the falsetto voice. Put this on and you'll be back in the world of Red Wedge, Thatcher, and Simon Bates's Our Tune.  Ahhh....."
£9.90   Used & New from: £5.79
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)

Parade: Original Soundtrack - Under the Cherry Moon
14.  Parade: Original Soundtrack - Under the Cherry Moon by Prince
The list author says:
  "The lead-up to the much talked about Sign of the Times. I actually prefer this one."
£5.54   Used & New from: £1.41
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)

True Stories
15.  True Stories by Talking Heads
The list author says:
  "Recorded almost accidentally as the alternative to a soundtrack of a self-indulgent David Byrne film, this benefits from being spur of the moment. Great songs - funny and sad at the same time."
£9.52   Used & New from: £0.63
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Waltz Darling
16.  Waltz Darling by Malcolm McLaren
The list author says:
  "Malcolm McLaren's one touch of genius."
£6.01   Used & New from: £0.92
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

Debut
17.  Debut by Björk
The list author says:
  "I love Bjork, particularly the way she is not afraid to use dissonance in a pop song. A very rare talent."
£4.58   Used & New from: £0.83
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

Kamakiriad
18.  Kamakiriad by Donald Fagen
The list author says:
  "Yes I know. Donald Fagen again. But this album is inspired."
£6.81   Used & New from: £1.00
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Casanova
19.  Casanova by The Divine Comedy
The list author says:
  "Neil Hannon was the greatest talent to emerge in pop in the 1990s. And this is his best album. If I could write one song as good as the ones on this album, I would die happy."
£5.50   Used & New from: £0.72
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

A Short Album About Love
20.  A Short Album About Love by The Divine Comedy
The list author says:
  "Almost as good as Casanova. But sadly after this it started to go wrong, especially when he made the mistake of taking on icky Radiohead's producer."
Used & New from: £0.83
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)

Lost Horizons
21.  Lost Horizons by Lemon Jelly
The list author says:
  "The best chill-out album I've heard so far. Miles better than Groove Armada."
£27.66   Used & New from: £1.57
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (64 customer reviews)

Stars of CCTV
22.  Stars of CCTV by Hard-Fi
The list author says:
  "Raucous sound with a disco undertone - great! And why didn't I think of the idea behind Cash Machine?"
£1.46   Used & New from: £0.01
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (108 customer reviews)

Life in Cartoon Motion
23.  Life in Cartoon Motion by Mika

£3.59   Used & New from: £0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (144 customer reviews)
