Mal's Top Albums (1)

A Listmania! list by Cheekygit (UK)
 
Cold Roses
1.  Cold Roses by Ryan Adams
The list author says:
  "My favourite of all the Ryan Adams albums. A 19 song double CD set of mellow country and melancholy low-key rock. Thus far, he has yet to better this masterpiece."
16.83   Used & New from: 0.71
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (34 customer reviews)

Boxer
2.  Boxer by The National
The list author says:
  "Obscure lyrical imagery combined with melodies of stark beauty. Give it the time it deserves and you will be handsomely rewarded."
10.17   Used & New from: 4.85
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (56 customer reviews)

Berlin
3.  Berlin by Lou Reed
The list author says:
  "Uncle Lou's follow up to his breakthrough album 'Transformer', Critically panned when released but now lauded as one of his best - dark and beautiful."
4.76   Used & New from: 2.40
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

Who's Next (Deluxe Edition)
4.  Who's Next (Deluxe Edition) by The Who
The list author says:
  "The Who at their recording peak. Every track (except the ordinary "Going Mobile") hits the bullseye. 40 years on it still sounds as fresh and vibrant as ever."
20.99   Used & New from: 6.99
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (113 customer reviews)

Let England Shake
5.  Let England Shake by PJ Harvey
The list author says:
  "A thoughtful and thought provoking collection of songs that present an impartial and unbiased view of England's conflicts past and present."
7.38   Used & New from: 2.00
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (101 customer reviews)

Teaser
6.  Teaser by Tommy Bolin
The list author says:
  "Rock to funk to jazz to reggae, this is one eclectic album but all underpinned by TB's fiery guitar. The production isn't great but the music still overcomes it."
Used & New from: 12.26

Exile On Main Street [Remastered]
7.  Exile On Main Street [Remastered] by The Rolling Stones
The list author says:
  "The '68-'72 period was a purple patch for the Stones when they crafted their best music. 40 years on, Exile's mix of hard rock and earthy blues is still irrestible."
5.88   Used & New from: 4.75
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (157 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Fisherman's Blues
8.  Fisherman's Blues by The Waterboys
The list author says:
  "The original 1997 album still remains the high point of the band's career but this 2006 release with a second disc containing nine extra tracks actually eclipses it! - a milestone in Celtic folk rock."
4.99
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)

Vs.
9.  Vs. by Pearl Jam
The list author says:
  "PJ purists mostly cite debut album "Ten" as the bands best but IMHO 'Vs' rates higher. "Animal","Rearviewmirror","Daughter","Indifference" are all among PJ's best and can be found here."
5.28   Used & New from: 1.30
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (41 customer reviews)

The Principle Of Moments
10.  The Principle Of Moments by Robert Plant
The list author says:
  "2nd post-Zep solo album from Percy. Expansive widescreen arrangements much removed from Zep's claustrophobic blues. "Other Arms","Messin' with the Mekon" & "Big Log" are real quality."
5.95   Used & New from: 2.93
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Spirit Of Eden
11.  Spirit Of Eden by Talk Talk
The list author says:
  "A singular musical experience. This is an album that must be listened to without distraction or interruption. "Wealth" is the most desolate yet achingly beautiful piece I have ever heard."
15.26   Used & New from: 3.04
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (64 customer reviews)

Excitable Boy
12.  Excitable Boy by Warren Zevon
The list author says:
  "It's close call between his '76 debut and this, his 2nd album from '78.  "Werewolves of London", "Lawyers, Guns & Money" and "Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner" just about clinch it."
7.49
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

The Science of Things
13.  The Science of Things by Bush
The list author says:
  "As grunge was dying, Bush were shaking off the 'Nirvana clones' tag to shine in their own right with this heroic album. Top tracks "Space Travel","The Chemicals Between Us","Letting the Cables Sleep"."
12.99   Used & New from: 0.30
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews)

The Bends
14.  The Bends by Radiohead
The list author says:
  "Why the world went bonkers for "OK Computer" when this, its predecessor, was far superior is beyond me. "The Bends","Bones","Street Spirit","Just","Black Star" - the biz!!"
4.00   Used & New from: 0.20
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (167 customer reviews)

Big Red Letter Day
15.  Big Red Letter Day by Buffalo Tom
The list author says:
  "Bill Janovitz and his BT buddies never got the recognition they deserved. They released a string of critically acclaimed albums. This is my personal favourite."
7.23   Used & New from: 0.97
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

August & Everything After
16.  August & Everything After by Counting Crows
The list author says:
  "Any CC album is worth having but this, their debut from '94, set the bar very high for their later albums. Earnest but rich in imagery."
3.96   Used & New from: 0.12
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (98 customer reviews)

No More Shall We Part
17.  No More Shall We Part by Nick Cave
The list author says:
  "The earlier 'Boatman's Call' album may be the critics fave but this, the follow up, is (IMHO) the better album. The title track, 'Hallelujah' and 'We Came Along This Road' are standouts but there really are no duffers."
8.17   Used & New from: 3.53
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (55 customer reviews)

Expecting To Fly
18.  Expecting To Fly by Bluetones
The list author says:
  "Debut from '96. great songs, great guitar and lovely understated vocal. End to end classic that set the bar pretty high for the other britpop wannabees."
5.50   Used & New from: 0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Live In London
19.  Live In London by Leonard Cohen
The list author says:
  "I'm a bit of a latecomer to the genius that is Leonard Cohen. Live album from his 2008 London gigs which not only sees the great man in superb form but also showcases a stunning band."
8.25   Used & New from: 5.78
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (128 customer reviews)

Placebo
20.  Placebo by Placebo
The list author says:
  "Placebo's debut bristled with nervous energy & still remains (for me) their best. Hidden track "HK Farewell" is a dark moody piece well worth waiting the 8/9 mins of silence after "Swallow" for."
4.13   Used & New from: 0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (41 customer reviews)

Nils Lofgren
21.  Nils Lofgren by Nils Lofgren
The list author says:
  "The perennial sideman but his 1st solo album from 1975 was chock full of glorious 3 minute pop songs that should've sold a million. "Back It Up","Keith Don't Go","Goin' Back","If I Say It, It's So" - class!"
Used & New from: 39.95

Stray Dog (Expanded Edition)
22.  Stray Dog (Expanded Edition) by Stray Dog
The list author says:
  "Fasten Your Seat Belts!!! announces Snuffy Walden at the start of track 1 and what follows is indeed a wild ride. Swaggering Texas blues rock with attitude. "Chevrolet" struts like a Bangkok hooker!."
12.29   Used & New from: 8.62
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

16 and Savaged
23.  16 and Savaged by Silverhead
The list author says:
  "The album that made me want to be in a band. UK-Stones-meets-T.Rex-glam rock with a sleazy undercurrent. Titles like "More than your mouth can hold" sum up where this band were at. Great stuff!!."
Used & New from: 15.72

Fully Completely
24.  Fully Completely by The Tragically Hip
The list author says:
  "Canada's finest; 'The Hip' have consistently delivered great albums but this ranks among their very best"
8.93   Used & New from: 0.09

Last Orders At Harry's Bar
25.  Last Orders At Harry's Bar by Songdog
The list author says:
  "OK I'm biased with this one but it is a GREAT album. Light acoustic instrumentation supports heavyweight lyricism - and it's all about the songs...check 'em out"
13.92   Used & New from: 11.65
