My Favourite Albums

A Listmania! list by John O'Connor (Liverpool)
(REAL NAME)   
 
OK Computer
1.  OK Computer by Radiohead
The list author says:
  "A truly unbelievable piece of work. Never has any other album left me with such an incredible feeling of hope, desperation, beauty and, above all, the sense that I had just heard something remarkable."
4.37   Used & New from: 0.18
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (295 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Astral Weeks
2.  Astral Weeks by Van Morrison
The list author says:
  "A stunning album that runs OK Computer extremely close. One of the greatest examples of the singer-songwriter field."
5.84   Used & New from: 0.89
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (88 customer reviews)

The Queen Is Dead
3.  The Queen Is Dead by The Smiths
The list author says:
  "The album that showed just what Morrissey and Marr could do, a brilliant lyrical and musical work that could have you laughing and crying within the first 15 minutes."
5.81   Used & New from: 0.07
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (82 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Blonde On Blonde
4.  Blonde On Blonde by Bob Dylan
The list author says:
  "Probably Dylan's finest hour, with songs such as Visions of Johanna and the epic Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands making this a phenomenal album."
4.99   Used & New from: 2.23
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (85 customer reviews)

Forever Changes
5.  Forever Changes by Love
The list author says:
  "Forever Changes is a timeless classic, a masterpiece by any standard, and grossly overlooked for other inferior 60s albums."
5.52   Used & New from: 0.76
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (31 customer reviews)

The Velvet Underground & Nico
6.  The Velvet Underground & Nico by Velvet Underground
The list author says:
  "I can't say anything that hasn't already been said, so I won't. Just buy it."
5.30   Used & New from: 0.30
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (81 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Doolittle
7.  Doolittle by Pixies
The list author says:
  "Listen to any modern indie/rock album and you will hear traces of this album. It's incredible to think that it was released 2 years before I was born, it hasn't aged in the slightest."
6.71   Used & New from: 3.71
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (72 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Blue
8.  Blue by Joni Mitchell
The list author says:
  "The album that pioneered all female vocalists of the last 30+ years, Blue is a heartbreaking piece that you will always go back to."
5.20   Used & New from: 0.99
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (120 customer reviews)

Marquee Moon
9.  Marquee Moon by Television
The list author says:
  "My favourite album of the punk/post-punk era, and also one of the greatest guitar albums ever made. Oh, and the title track is extraordinary."
5.00   Used & New from: 2.10
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (38 customer reviews)

After The Gold Rush
10.  After The Gold Rush by Neil Young
The list author says:
  "My favourite Neil Young album, his debut solo release holds some of his finest moments (After The Goldrush, Don't Let It Bring You Down etc)"
4.81   Used & New from: 1.03
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (74 customer reviews)

Pet Sounds
11.  Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys
The list author says:
  "14 years ago, at the tender age of 4, my dad bought me my first album ever - Pet Sounds. And I can never thank him enough."
5.99   Used & New from: 2.82
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (103 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Blood On The Tracks
12.  Blood On The Tracks by Bob Dylan
The list author says:
  "The most open of Dylan's albums, Blood on the Tracks is a poignant reflection on his relationship with Sara, whom he was divorcing at the time. An all time classic."
4.96   Used & New from: 2.49
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (114 customer reviews)

Kid A
13.  Kid A by Radiohead
The list author says:
  "An incredibly brave album following the success of OK Computer, Kid A pushed the boundaries of modern music - and with wonderful results."
4.88   Used & New from: 0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (419 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars
14.  The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars by David Bowie
The list author says:
  "One of the greatest rock albums ever made, and probably the finest work by an incredible artist (although fans of Low and Hunky Dory may have a point)."
7.18   Used & New from: 1.51
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (202 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Revolver
15.  Revolver by The Beatles
The list author says:
  "I could not go through this list without The Beatles, and I think that this is their greatest moment (much more than the vastly overrated Sgt Pepper, and just above Abbey Road)"
11.66   Used & New from: 1.15
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (200 customer reviews)

Horses
16.  Horses by Patti Smith
The list author says:
  "Punchy, deep, innovative, and, ultimately, just brilliant."
4.99   Used & New from: 1.99
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Safe As Milk
17.  Safe As Milk by Captain Beefheart
The list author says:
  "Although Trout Mask Replica is probably greater in terms of innovation and influence, I admire it more than enjoy it. Safe As Milk is just quality."
4.99   Used & New from: 2.75
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews)

London Calling
18.  London Calling by The Clash
The list author says:
  "The defining Clash album. The debut is perhaps edgier, but this is where they began to expand on punk, although the 2nd half of the album lets it down slightly."
4.99   Used & New from: 1.46
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (95 customer reviews)

The Village Green Preservation Society
19.  The Village Green Preservation Society by The Kinks
The list author says:
  "Horrifically overlooked at the time, The Kinks' opus has finally garnered the attention it deserves. Better than 90% of The Beatles' albums."
29.88   Used & New from: 5.86
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

Funhouse
20.  Funhouse by Iggy & The Stooges
The list author says:
  "The most complete work by the Godfathers of Punk."
4.99   Used & New from: 2.53
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (42 customer reviews)

Daydream Nation
21.  Daydream Nation by Sonic Youth
The list author says:
  "Who knew out of tune guitars could sound so good?"
Used & New from: 8.38
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)

Berlin
22.  Berlin by Lou Reed
The list author says:
  "Panned at the time, this thought-provoking album has developed legendary status. Probably not the best for those prone to depression."
4.75   Used & New from: 2.55
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

I Am A Bird Now
23.  I Am A Bird Now by Antony and the Johnsons
The list author says:
  "If Radiohead didn't exist, this would probably be the best album of the last 15 years. An incredible tale of a man's despair with his gender, led by one of the most beautifully strange voices ever."
8.94   Used & New from: 2.65
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (93 customer reviews)

Crooked Rain Crooked Rain [Special Edition]
24.  Crooked Rain Crooked Rain [Special Edition] by Pavement
The list author says:
  "One of the best albums of the 90s."
10.54   Used & New from: 3.11
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Roxy Music
25.  Roxy Music by Roxy Music
The list author says:
  "Roxy Music's debut is their finest, before the loss of Eno and the descent into 'cheesiness'. Bar some of 'For Your Pleasure', it was downhill from here."
6.24   Used & New from: 3.25
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (39 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions
