(VINE VOICE)   
 
The Greatest [Reissue]
1.  The Greatest [Reissue] by Cat Power
The list author says:
  "An album for which the words "achingly beautiful" were invented. Gets better with every listen."
£7.99   Used & New from: £1.07
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (26 customer reviews)

Funeral
2.  Funeral by Arcade Fire
The list author says:
  "The new album's good, but this is the requisite starting point for this extraordinary band"
£8.99   Used & New from: £1.02
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (167 customer reviews)

Grace
3.  Grace by Jeff Buckley
The list author says:
  "In the words of one reviewer, these are songs of either "crippling despair" or "an almost violent joy". Either way, these ten tracks have stood the test of time and 'Grace' continues to break hearts."

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (267 customer reviews)

Country Falls
4.  Country Falls by Husky Rescue

£9.24   Used & New from: £1.14
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Either/Or
5.  Either/Or by Elliott Smith

The Bends
7.  The Bends by Radiohead

  "Robust yet fragile, rocking but also soothing, cynical yet tender, The Bends is still Radiohead's most cohesive album to date."
£5.01   Used & New from: £0.99
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (179 customer reviews)

MTV Unplugged in New York
8.  MTV Unplugged in New York by Nirvana

Rid Of Me
9.  Rid Of Me by PJ Harvey
