Gently does it...

Five Leaves Left
1.  Five Leaves Left by Nick Drake
The list author says:
  "Nick Drake's debut abum, his best in my opinion. Riverman is timelessly perfect. Island records' musos in residence stamped their signature on this as much as the man himself. Unequalled."

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (99 customer reviews)

Trailer Park
2.  Trailer Park by Beth Orton
The list author says:

3.40   Used & New from: 0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

The River
3.  The River by Amadou Cisse

Texas Campfire Tapes
6.  Texas Campfire Tapes by Michelle Shocked
