Forever Breathes The Lonely Word
2.  Forever Breathes The Lonely Word by Felt
The list author says:
  "A touch of Lloyd Cole in the recorded sound is a matter of taste but it's the most consistently brilliant Felt album ever."
Used & New from: £62.10

Poems Of The River
3.  Poems Of The River by Skatalites
The list author says:
  "A heartfelt small masterpiece that contains two of their very best songs in 'She Lives By The Castle' and 'Riding On The Equator'. Listen to the great guitar solos in The Equator. You'll be mesmerized"
£11.28
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

The Splendour Of Fear
4.  The Splendour Of Fear by Felt
The list author says:
  "Sublime, ethereal, reverb-drenched glory of the Felt first chapter reaches its conclusion here. 'The World Is As Soft As Lace' is an absolute gem of fragile beauty."
Used & New from: £17.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Crumbling The Antiseptic Beauty
5.  Crumbling The Antiseptic Beauty by Felt
The list author says:
  "One of the most unique debut albums of all time. Definitely not everyone's taste both musically and sonically. But it's highly rewarding if you give it some time to sink in."
Used & New from: £24.95
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Ignite The Seven Cannons
6.  Ignite The Seven Cannons by Skatalites
The list author says:
  "Always different, always the same, and they are not the Fall. The only album that features both Deebank and Duffy. That's enough to warrant any Felt fan's attention."
Used & New from: £32.80

Back In Denim
7.  Back In Denim by Denim
The list author says:
  "Who would have thought it? Lawrence the glam rocker? Sounds as unlikely as Morrissey the metal god. But somehow he made it incredibly convincing even moving in places."
£14.41   Used & New from: £8.14
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

The Pictorial Jackson Review
8.  The Pictorial Jackson Review by Felt
The list author says:
  "Rather underwhelming return after the absolute pinnacle of Forever Breathes and Poem. Some good songs in the first half but lounge Jazz in the second half is definitely misguided."
Used & New from: £111.95

Tearing Up The Album Chart
9.  Tearing Up The Album Chart by Go-Kart Mozart
The list author says:
  "A genuine return to form this time with proper songs and a proper band. Almost as good as the first Denim album.  Incredibly catchy, sickeningly twisted, hopelessly retro yet defiantely contemporary."
Used & New from: £15.28
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Me And A Monkey On The Moon
10.  Me And A Monkey On The Moon by Felt
The list author says:
  "The least impressive Felt album next to two instrumental collections. Gooey, sappy and pronouncedly nostalgic. It's not Felt. It's Denim mark 1."
£12.27   Used & New from: £7.85
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Denim on Ice
11.  Denim on Ice by Denim
The list author says:
  "On the surface, it's a disappointing follow-up to one of great lost albums of the '90's that is Back in Denim. But it has its moments. Music got sillier but lyrics got darker."
£29.99   Used & New from: £14.99
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Instant Wigwam And Igloo Mixture
12.  Instant Wigwam And Igloo Mixture by Go-Kart Mozart
The list author says:
  "Novelty Rock part 2. Relying almost exclusively on a cheap sythesizer. Sounding lot like an amateur home-recording. Perhaps a forced choice? You have to praise resilience of this guy, and his genius."
£12.90   Used & New from: £6.40
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Novelty Rock
13.  Novelty Rock by Denim
The list author says:
  "A collection of single b-sides which is a bit rich for this perennial cult hero. Lawrence gone to a path nobody would dare, that is, paying homage to Chicory Tip. Is it pure genius or utter madness?"
Used & New from: £15.99
3.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Let The Snakes Crinkle Their Heads To Death
14.  Let The Snakes Crinkle Their Heads To Death by Felt
The list author says:
  "Some hail it as Felt's masterpiece. But I would be lying if I repeated the claim. This all instrumental sounds more like half-baked backing tracks. It's bewildering but that's Felt for you."
£10.16   Used & New from: £6.93
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Train Above The City
15.  Train Above The City by Felt
The list author says:
  "Completists only. This is Felt at their most over the top. A full-length album of poorly played lounge Jazz instrumentals? A fascinating talking point but has absolutely no musical merits whatsoever."
Used & New from: £42.95
