Blood On The Tracks
2.  Blood On The Tracks by Bob Dylan
The list author says:
  "Bloody heck! Get a deck of cards, christen this cd, 10 tales and laments, and rants, and invocations. Surely a work of ripped up genius. Ha! I can't help it if i'm lucky"

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (159 customer reviews)

Pearl Jam Live Verona
3.  Pearl Jam Live Verona by Pearl Jam
The list author says:
  "Undecided at best album, so check out their live stuff: greatness from early songs like Yellow Ledbetter to maturity of Wishlist. If you dismissed PJ back at the end of grunge then more fool you."
£23.59
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Family Tree
4.  Family Tree by Björk
The list author says:

4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Howl Howl Gaff Gaff [Us Import]
5.  Howl Howl Gaff Gaff [Us Import] by Shout Out Louds
The list author says:
  "Recently upturned this on quest to pan the gold from the immense slag heap of little indie bands. What a find! Swedes find a better way of using English (like Bjork), Very Loud is unpolished nugget!"

Everything Is Wrong
6.  Everything Is Wrong by Moby

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (25 customer reviews)

Grit
7.  Grit by Madrugada
The list author says:
  "Music to listen to on the Rome Metro on the way to translate for a schizophrenic. That's how i like to remember it. This is a good intro to the Norwegians with tunes as moody as their spanish name."

Graceland (Remastered And Expanded)

Whatever And Ever Amen (Remastered Edition)
9.  Whatever And Ever Amen (Remastered Edition) by Ben Folds Five
The list author says:
  "Another great one who spins a tale (check the story in Brick). Ben Folds must have more characters in his tunes than anyone. Sometimes too cocky for his own good but comedy and melancholy mixed well."

4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

The Essential Bruce Springsteen
10.  The Essential Bruce Springsteen by Bruce Springsteen

Give Up
12.  Give Up by The Postal Service

Dookie
13.  Dookie by Green Day

Fiesta: The Sun Also Rises (Arrow Classic)

A Happy Death (Penguin Modern Classics)
17.  A Happy Death (Penguin Modern Classics) by Richard Howard
The list author says:
  "If you grew from L'Etranger then see to this. Badly put together and composed but the quest is inspiring. Will deal with all you need to reach the title and then leave you flustered."
