The Best of UK Pop, Beginner's Guide to the curious American

A Listmania! list by I should be in Europe (New York, NY United States)
 
Angels With Dirty Faces
1.  Angels With Dirty Faces by Sugababes
The list author says:
  "I can't get enough of this album.  It's young, sassy, fun, a bit cheesy, but dirty enough to keep it edgy, and is produced really well."
1.44   Used & New from: 0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (52 customer reviews)

Saints & Sinners
2.  Saints & Sinners by All Saints
The list author says:
  "I could really do without the last 5 songs on this album, but the 1st 9 are so great that I still listen to this regularly after almost 3 years since it was released."
1.49   Used & New from: 0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (46 customer reviews)

Life Thru A Lens (UK Release)
3.  Life Thru A Lens (UK Release) by Robbie Williams
The list author says:
  "How I love this man.  I enjoy all of his albums but this is the 1st and in my opinion, the best.  It's cheeky and raw with the Brit Pop/Oasis feel, but still establishing his own sound."
2.96   Used & New from: 0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

Where We Belong
4.  Where We Belong by Boyzone
The list author says:
  "Oh, guilty pleasures!  I'm usually not a fan of the slow jam boyband, but Ronan Keating just has the sexiest voice and this whole album is boyband brilliance."
2.77   Used & New from: 0.01
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Loveboat
5.  Loveboat by Erasure
The list author says:
  "Everyone seems to think Erasure died after 1988.  They have been consistently making fantastic albums, this being their most recent original material.  Synthesized and melodic perfection."
7.99   Used & New from: 0.20
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (26 customer reviews)

Lickin' On Both Sides
6.  Lickin' On Both Sides by Mis-Teeq
The list author says:
  "Love those girlbands.  Mis-Teeq is a good intro to the UK Garage scene.  Sharp fast beats and a lot of sass."
2.40   Used & New from: 0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

Original Pirate Material
7.  Original Pirate Material by The Streets
The list author says:
  "Let's delve a little bit deeper into UK Garage.  Undeniable British, really raw.  It's rap unlike anything you've ever heard in the U.S."
6.12   Used & New from: 0.40
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (105 customer reviews)

Gold: Greatest Hits
8.  Gold: Greatest Hits by Steps
The list author says:
  "Allright, Steps are the TRUEST guilty pleasure.  I mean, SO cheesy, but SO fun and great and I learned all their dance moves."
3.50   Used & New from: 0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (43 customer reviews)

Light Years
9.  Light Years by Kylie Minogue
The list author says:
  "Did you love her album Fever?  Try her previous album, just as great but a bit more camp."
8.39   Used & New from: 0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (79 customer reviews)

Modern Life Is Rubbish
10.  Modern Life Is Rubbish by Blur
The list author says:
  "Blur blows me away with every album.  I also recommend their Best of, but this album is such a social commentary and musically amazing."
4.88   Used & New from: 0.20
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (36 customer reviews)

Different Class
11.  Different Class by Pulp
The list author says:
  "Energetic, angry, hilarious, and a bit pathetic, A Different Class is one of my favourite albums of all time."
4.88   Used & New from: 0.58
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (49 customer reviews)

Read My Lips
12.  Read My Lips by Sophie Ellis Bextor
The list author says:
  "Sophie has a great raspy voice teamed up with a retro 80's dance sound.  She's just fabulous."
3.58   Used & New from: 0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (48 customer reviews)
