My life on celluloid (up to age 13)

A Listmania! list by Rob Telford
 
Blur
1.  Blur by Blur
The list author says:
  "Their best album. In my view, the Best Of didn't represent their best songs. 2nd - Parklife, 3rd - 13, 4th -  Modern Life Is Rubbish."
£2.86   Used & New from: £0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (34 customer reviews)

Ben Folds Five
2.  Ben Folds Five by Ben Folds Five
The list author says:
  "Never heard of the band or always wanted to get into them? Start here, and then progress through. His new solo album is also good, but has some boring tracks in the middle."
£9.97   Used & New from: £0.05
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Word Gets Around
3.  Word Gets Around by Stereophonics
The list author says:
  "Superb debut, dreadful follow-ups. The theory is that he put too many great songs with great lyrics on the first album!"
£3.46   Used & New from: £0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (103 customer reviews)

Schubert Dip
4.  Schubert Dip by EMF
The list author says:
  "Children is atmospheric, Unbelievable just fun and Girl Of An Age moving. The singer may be a bit annoying, but what other bands these days are cool enough to use Burt & Ernie between songs?"
£5.52   Used & New from: £0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
5.  Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles
The list author says:
  "Yes, yes, not the best AND overrated. Revolver is the best album, but this can be used as a fine example of a band enjoying their art."
£25.10   Used & New from: £1.24
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (300 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Graceland
6.  Graceland by Paul Simon
The list author says:
  "Groovy, but meant so much more to the Western market than that. No longer did white mainstream artists have to live in four-piece rock bands if they wanted to be taken seriously."
£18.88   Used & New from: £1.08
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (150 customer reviews)

A Secret History ... The Best Of The Divine Comedy
7.  A Secret History ... The Best Of The Divine Comedy by The Divine Comedy
The list author says:
  "Die-hard Comedy fans won't like this, but to someone who came in late in the day like me, this is superbly performed, produced and chosen. Wit is absent in much of modern music."
£6.29   Used & New from: £0.93
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (45 customer reviews)

In It For The Money
8.  In It For The Money by Supergrass
The list author says:
  "This just edges out I Should Coco because I tend to prefer albums with a variety of styles rather than just pure pop brilliance. The last album was pretty mediocre unfortunately."
£3.69   Used & New from: £0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews)

King of Fools
9.  King of Fools by Delirious?
The list author says:
  "They rehashed this recently, but Sanctify is a great song whatever your personal faith and Delirious have been representing Christianity well in the mainstream, however dodgy their look has got!"
£8.07   Used & New from: £0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Urban Hymns
10.  Urban Hymns by The Verve
The list author says:
  "Not a great album, but singles that represent a time where the last dregs of Britpop finally dried up, probably after Lucky Man. The Drugs Don't Work was number 1 the week after Diana died."
£3.96   Used & New from: £0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (122 customer reviews)

Melting Pot
11.  Melting Pot by The Charlatans
The list author says:
  "I love best ofs because they only look at a band's good moments. This has got them all. I ignored Wonderland because for old fans it seemed a bit like a slap in the face really..."
£4.89   Used & New from: £1.00
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

The Bends
12.  The Bends by Radiohead
The list author says:
  "In my opinion, this is better than OK Computer because no song gets on my nerves like Climbing Up The Walls and Exit Music (For A Film) do. Makes making your own music seem possible."
£4.54   Used & New from: £1.20
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (176 customer reviews)

Bring It On
13.  Bring It On by Gomez
The list author says:
  "Gomez are a great band, but they need to get out and get some new ideas for tunes! It's all production these days. I can't choose between the first two albums, they're both excellent."
£3.03   Used & New from: £0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (42 customer reviews)

One Day at a Time E.P.
14.  One Day at a Time E.P. by Symposium
The list author says:
  "Ultra-rare, but an unsung heroes of mid-90s guitar music. This is where I first fell in love with rock music's diversity of styles. Ska to punk to pop and back again!"
£22.95   Used & New from: £0.04
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Steam
15.  Steam by East 17
The list author says:
  "Take That had one fantastic single (Never Forget), but E-17 were more diverse (!) . It's a sad refelction on our single buying that Stay Another Day is the best Christmas number one of the 90s!"
£11.17   Used & New from: £1.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Flood
16.  Flood by They Might Be Giants
The list author says:
  "Crazy Americans have never, and will never, sound so great. I just really love Birdhouse In Your Soul, it reminds me of childhood..."
£8.95   Used & New from: £1.48
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

Greatest Hits [Us Import]
17.  Greatest Hits [Us Import] by New Kids On The Block
The list author says:
  "Hangin' Tough was my first single. Call It What You Want is good. We still listen to their Christmas album (highlight: Funky Funky Xmas) and if you were young when I was you'll understand the appeal."
£15.33   Used & New from: £2.99
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

The Simpsons Sing The Blues
18.  The Simpsons Sing The Blues by The Simpsons
The list author says:
  "I didn't get Sky or cable till last year, so I never got to watch the Simpsons. But my dad copied this from a guy at work, we lost the tape and I only recently bought it again. It's just fun music!"
£5.64   Used & New from: £0.01
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Back To The Future: Part 2 [VHS] [1989]
19.  Back To The Future: Part 2 [VHS] [1989] VHS Michael J. Fox
The list author says:
  "The best of the trilogy, simply brilliant as a starting point for understanding complicated plots. Criticised and underrated, thisis really exciting for a kid, moreso than the other more adult films."
£9.99   Used & New from: £2.49
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (38 customer reviews)

Et - The Extra Terrestrial [VHS] [1982]
20.  Et - The Extra Terrestrial [VHS] [1982] VHS Henry Thomas
The list author says:
  "I think I might just be able to watch it without crying right now, but it remains magical. Invented BMXs as the coolest thing on the planet."
£10.90   Used & New from: £1.99
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (331 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Bill And Ted's Bogus Journey [1991] [VHS] [1992]
21.  Bill And Ted's Bogus Journey [1991] [VHS] [1992] VHS Peter Hewitt|Keanu Reeves|Alex Winter|William Sadler
The list author says:
  "Only better than the first one in that it has a great ending, with the best soundtrack song I had witnessed in my young life. Little did I know who Kiss ACTUALLY were..."
£15.00   Used & New from: £0.50
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (59 customer reviews)

Speed [VHS]
22.  Speed [VHS] VHS Keanu Reeves
The list author says:
  "Not for Keanu Reeves, but for its status as the number one action movie with a great concept. I love the bit where she runs over the pram, hahaha."
£3.95   Used & New from: £0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (122 customer reviews)

More Than Just A Game: Best Of Sporting **** Ups [VHS]
23.  More Than Just A Game: Best Of Sporting **** Ups [VHS] VHS More Than a Game
The list author says:
  "Possibly the funniest attempt to make a bloopers video in the history of Western Civilisation. So bad it's funny. Great for running jokes with mates."
£4.27   Used & New from: £0.01

Manchester United - Champions 2 - Official Review of the 93/94 Season [VHS]
24.  Manchester United - Champions 2 - Official Review of the 93/94 Season [VHS] VHS Eric Cantona
The list author says:
  "I was a glory boy and this was my stimulus. Simply superb football, no matter what your allegiance. 1999 was a more succesful year for the club, but this is where the domestic domination REALLY began."
Used & New from: £2.99
