Slanted And Enchanted

Public Image/Second Edition

£32.95   Used & New from: £4.49
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

The Man Comes Around [Bonus Tracks]

Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews)

Homogenic
6.  Homogenic by Björk

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

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

Screamadelica
8.  Screamadelica by Primal Scream

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (44 customer reviews)

Pinkerton
10.  Pinkerton by Weezer

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (47 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (46 customer reviews)

Maxinquaye
13.  Maxinquaye by Tricky

£7.71   Used & New from: £1.15
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews)

Radiator
14.  Radiator by Super Furry Animals

Purple Rain

Never Mind the Bollocks: Here's the Sex Pistols
16.  Never Mind the Bollocks: Here's the Sex Pistols by Sex Pistols
The list author says:
  "Impossibly exciting. If it was possible to adopt sound and raise it as one of the family, I would adopt the first 30 seconds of Anarchy In The UK."

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (161 customer reviews)

Spanish Dance Troupe
17.  Spanish Dance Troupe by Gorky's Zygotic Mynci
The list author says:
  "One of the prettiest voices I've ever heard. These songs have that strange quality of making you think you already know them on very few listens."
£11.27   Used & New from: £2.50
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

The Queen Is Dead
18.  The Queen Is Dead by The Smiths

£6.57   Used & New from: £1.19
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (95 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

His 'N' Hers
19.  His 'N' Hers by Pulp
The list author says:
  "Sort of sleazy, voyueristic, sexually inadequate, pop from Sheffield. Who would have thought that would work?"
£4.90   Used & New from: £1.05
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

69 Love Songs
20.  69 Love Songs by The Magnetic Fields
The list author says:
  "Count 'em! 69 love songs spread over three discs, good value for money at the very least. It happens to be brilliant too."
£12.17   Used & New from: £5.87
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (47 customer reviews)

Fear of Music [CD + DVDA]
21.  Fear of Music [CD + DVDA] by Talking Heads

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

The Sophtware Slump

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (41 customer reviews)

In Utero
23.  In Utero by Nirvana

Hounds Of Love
24.  Hounds Of Love by Kate Bush

Rings Around The World
