Exposure (2 Cd Special Edition)
4.  Exposure (2 Cd Special Edition) by Robert Fripp

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

Made in England

Atom Heart Mother
7.  Atom Heart Mother by Pink Floyd
The list author says:
  "Iconic cover but less well liked than almost all their other albums. The orchestration puts some off I guess, but why is this derided and the terrible The Wall loved? A mystery to me."

Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo/Devo Live
8.  Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo/Devo Live by Devo

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Do It Yourself [2CD Deluxe Edition]
10.  Do It Yourself [2CD Deluxe Edition] by Ian Dury & The Blockheads
