Push the Button
4.  Push the Button by Money Mark
The list author says:
  "A lot of left-field quality songs. Worth a listen."
£27.75   Used & New from: £9.88
3.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Man Alive
5.  Man Alive by Everything Everything
The list author says:
  "Jonathan Higgs has a horrible falsetto which sadly he uses almost the whole time. But this album isn't easy to pigeon hole and it keeps me off balance in a good way. Adult lyrics."

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (64 customer reviews)

Kamakiriad
6.  Kamakiriad by Donald Fagen

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

Whatever and Ever Amen

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (31 customer reviews)

The Fool
8.  The Fool by Warpaint
The list author says:
  "A slice of Mamas and Papas with a hint of a Sneaker Pimps. This album, and each track, takes a while to buzz (not the least on Bees) so give it all a chance."
£9.49   Used & New from: £4.00
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

Illinoise
9.  Illinoise by Sufjan Stevens

The Bachelor (Battle One)
10.  The Bachelor (Battle One) by Patrick Wolf

£4.00   Used & New from: £0.30

Post
11.  Post by Björk

Clandestino: Esperando La Ultima Ola...
13.  Clandestino: Esperando La Ultima Ola... by Manu Chao

Odelay (U.S. Edition)
15.  Odelay (U.S. Edition) by Beck
The list author says:
  "A mix of utter laid-backness and discordance. Stressful and transfixing, it's a crazy idea executed perfectly."
Used & New from: £0.35
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Sleeps With Angels
16.  Sleeps With Angels by Neil Young
The list author says:
  "To me the vibe's more akin to a progressive electronic album...except for the acoustic instruments (and the wandering 14 minute Young guitar-fest Change Your Mind)!"
£4.99   Used & New from: £0.74
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (15 customer reviews)

Metals
17.  Metals by Feist
The list author says:
  "Contemplative yet catchy in the end. Shades of Kate Bush, Tori Amos and Bats for Lashes...but not a copy."
£4.72   Used & New from: £2.34
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (31 customer reviews)

Portishead - PNYC - Live At The Roseland Theatre [1998] [DVD]
18.  Portishead - PNYC - Live At The Roseland Theatre [1998] [DVD] DVD ~ Portishead
The list author says:
  "Portishead's music benefits from a live orchestra and here they play my favourites from their albums. The audio mastering on the DVD is better than on the CD, in this case. Adult lyrics."
£8.39   Used & New from: £3.40
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Four
19.  Four by Blues Traveler
The list author says:

Used & New from: £1.22

Fur And Gold
21.  Fur And Gold by Bat for Lashes
The list author says:
  "Natasha Khan's goth heart speaks obliquely and this fantastical journey is the result."
£5.76   Used & New from: £0.51
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (55 customer reviews)

All Is Dream
22.  All Is Dream by Mercury Rev

£5.20   Used & New from: £0.12
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (26 customer reviews)

2
23.  2 by Mac Demarco
The list author says:
  "Off-key and quirky guitar led album, with shades of Blur in places."
£9.91   Used & New from: £6.90
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Emergency on Planet Earth
24.  Emergency on Planet Earth by Jamiroquai
