A Listmania! list by Mr. S. O'kane "snagii" (London, England)
(REAL NAME)   
 
It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back
1.  It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back by Public Enemy
The list author says:
  "20 - The greatest rap album of all time. This still is the 'Revolver' of rap as it changed rap from old skool good time music to rap as pure expression. Magnificent!"
£3.79   Used & New from: £1.04
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (43 customer reviews)

Bitches Brew
2.  Bitches Brew by Miles Davis
The list author says:
  "19  - No, this isn't No.3 on my Miles albums for non-jazz peeps. This is the Sgt Pepper of Jazz!!! Wild, trippy and rocktastic! Not for everyone but worth the patience."
£23.82   Used & New from: £3.66
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (61 customer reviews)

Zooropa
3.  Zooropa by U2
The list author says:
  "18 - At the time I thought this was just the most! I've changed my opinion but I still think it is one of U2's most innovative albums. Another one that will be a classic in years to come."
£5.96   Used & New from: £0.98
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (41 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

White Light / White Heat
4.  White Light / White Heat by Velvet Underground
The list author says:
  "17 - This is one heavy mother! Beautifully remastered in 1996 and now sounds as fresh it did back in 1968. Rolling Stone recently voted it the 'Coolest Album of all Time'. Nuff said."
£5.47   Used & New from: £1.68
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (45 customer reviews)

The Velvet Underground
5.  The Velvet Underground by Velvet Underground
The list author says:
  "16 - This was for a loooong time my favourite VU album for just being a perfectly formed song cycle. It also boasts proof that Lou could sing (cf 'Beginning...). Can't say anymore than 'perfect'."
£5.81   Used & New from: £1.87
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Aladdin Sane [Limited Edition-Anniversary digipack]
6.  Aladdin Sane [Limited Edition-Anniversary digipack] by David Bowie
The list author says:
  "15 - Sorry but this album will always be better than Ziggy for me. Sleaze is personified in every riff ol Ronno blasts out. Lyrically, its also more daring than its predecessor. Great hardcore glam LP"
£48.99   Used & New from: £18.00
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (113 customer reviews)

Live!
7.  Live! by Bob Marley
The list author says:
  "14 - One of the greatest live albums ever. It captures a perfect night where music transcends race and  indifference to new cultural values. Nothing short of beautiful!"
£7.15   Used & New from: £2.30
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

Dark Side of the Moon
8.  Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd
The list author says:
  "13 - For years I'd hate the idea of being into the Floyd. Shunning every review saying this was one of the best by saying 'hippie s**te'.  Then I bought it. The rest is history. It IS one of the best."
£8.17   Used & New from: £1.50
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (592 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Plastic Ono Band
9.  Plastic Ono Band by John Lennon
The list author says:
  "12 - To me this is one of the most chilling LPs ever. Lennon bares his soul and you cannot help but shiver at his anger. Best bit: the end of 'God'. Did you have to let us all down so cruelly, John?"
£24.98   Used & New from: £3.59
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (55 customer reviews)

Back to Basics
10.  Back to Basics by Billy Bragg
The list author says:
  "11 - Sad to say, Amazon has let me down here. THE ALBUM I WANT TO PUT HERE IS 'BREWING UP WITH...'. This is a compo of the 1st 2 albums and contains BUWBB. It's an 80s indie left wing thing, friends."
£29.99   Used & New from: £5.28
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Screamadelica
11.  Screamadelica by Primal Scream
The list author says:
  "10 - Into the 10! This brings back halycon days of my time at uni in Belfast. Got to see them live and they were ace. This is a potent brew of dance and rock. A sort of reverse 'B****es Brew'."
£3.99   Used & New from: £0.99
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (51 customer reviews)

Station To Station
12.  Station To Station by David Bowie
The list author says:
  "09 - My favourite Bowie album - Bowie as exetentialist crooner with a bit of Krautrock thrown in. Wild..is the best Bowie track ever (honest)! NB: I wish they'd re-issue it with its proper b/w cover."
£9.97   Used & New from: £3.95
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (104 customer reviews)

The Velvet Underground & Nico
13.  The Velvet Underground & Nico by Velvet Underground
The list author says:
  "08 - The greatest debut of all time. It STILL has that fresh 60s cool that very few albums from that era have. As a VU die-hard I must advise new fans, this is the one to get...NOW!!!!"
£13.97   Used & New from: £5.99
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (93 customer reviews)

Kind Of Blue
14.  Kind Of Blue by Miles Davis
The list author says:
  "07 The greatest jazz album ever! I never liked jazz until I heard this. Sublime stuff. What's ever better is that this album was no kop-out to commercialism. This was Miles' latest thang circa '59!"
£6.98   Used & New from: £1.31
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (240 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The White Album
15.  The White Album by The Beatles
The list author says:
  "06 - It's flawed, has a few naff songs but, by god, when its good, it's brilliant. A controversial choice for the Beatles finest but I love this album!"
£19.99   Used & New from: £3.06
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (237 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Kid A
16.  Kid A by Radiohead
The list author says:
  "05 - This will probably slide down my top 100 list in years to come but for now I love this mad album. Probably, the most daring album made by a major artist in recent times. Brilliant!"
£5.09   Used & New from: £1.49
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (427 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Sign 'o' The Times
17.  Sign 'o' The Times by Prince
The list author says:
  "04 - I hate people who praise Purple Rain over this classic. ARE YOU DEAF??!!! This was his funk odyssey and it drips of genius from Sides 1-4. I still love Prince and I await his return to form!!"
£6.84   Used & New from: £1.97
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

1969: Velvet Underground Live: Volume 1
18.  1969: Velvet Underground Live: Volume 1 by Velvet Underground
The list author says:
  "03 - Sadly the above is misleading. Shame on Mercury for splitting the original 2LP set into 2 seperate CDs.This is one great DBL album. I can't say anything other than it rocks from start to finish."
£5.51   Used & New from: £2.38
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Joshua Tree
19.  The Joshua Tree by U2
The list author says:
  "02 - Until very recently this was No.1 from as far back as 1987. I still love it : the songs, the mood, the playing is magical and pure in a rock and roll sense. But....."
£13.77   Used & New from: £0.74
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (180 customer reviews) | 5 customer discussions

OK Computer
20.  OK Computer by Radiohead
The list author says:
  "01 - ..this has overtaken it...this is as breathtaking as JT first was to me. An album I've continuously played that knocks me out again and again. It's Pet Sounds, B****es Brew  and JT rolled into 1"
£4.16   Used & New from: £1.00
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (313 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions
