My One-Per-Artist Top 20 (with no Best Ofs or Live albums)

David Robinson "kinitawowi"
 
Achtung Baby
Achtung Baby
"Simply perfect. The only album I've ever found which doesn't have a weak track."
Whiplash (2001 Reissue)
Whiplash (2001 Reissue)
"Forget The Best Of; this is where to get most of James' greatest stuff."
You've Come A Long Way, Baby
You've Come A Long Way, Baby
"Huge. Truly the definitive Big Beat album."
Talk on Corners [Special Edition]
Talk on Corners [Special Edition]
"Amazon no longer stocks the vastly superior original, so this will have to do. It's gorgeous."
Automatic for the People
Automatic for the People
"A couple of clunkers, but otherwise this is incredible."
Version 2.0
Version 2.0
"Great variety. There's much more going on with Garbage than just Push It and Stupid Girl."
Different Class
Different Class
"The real winners of The Great Escape vs What's The Story. A soundtrack to a generation."
Central Reservation
Central Reservation
"And not just to support somebody from near my home turf. Another wonderful variety of tracks."
I Bificus
I Bificus
"Properly called I Bificus, and an absolute pain to get hold of; but it's well worth it if you can."
Fin De Siecle
Fin De Siecle
"Simultaneously grandiose and touching, and that takes some doing."
Moon Safari
Moon Safari
"Epic. The defining moment of France Dance."
The Bends
The Bends
"Forget the inaccessible OK Computer, and all of Thom's subsequent disappearances up his own arse. This is where it happened."
Surfacing
Surfacing
"I still think Fumbling Towards Ecstasy is too much. Surfacing keeps the emotion to a manageable level, resulting in a better album."
Becoming X
Becoming X
"6 Underground. Not much more needs to be said."
Everything Must Go
Everything Must Go
"There's nothing much better to listen to than a band at their peak."
Tiger Bay
Tiger Bay
"Saint Etienne are usually better at singles than albums, but this is the nearest they get to reversing that."
The Cross Of Changes
The Cross Of Changes
"Enigma, as a concept, really shouldn't work; monks and beats? But this is a more tribally influenced album than MCMXC AD, and benefits for it."
The Spirit Room [Int'L-Not Enh.]
The Spirit Room [Int'L-Not Enh.]
"16 year olds really shouldn't be able to sing (and write) this well."
Dizzy Up the Girl
Dizzy Up the Girl
"Probably here for personal reasons, but it's damn good."
Christina Aguilera
Christina Aguilera
"Before the descent into pseudoporn, Christina had some serious lungs. The focus is on the voice, and it's brilliant."
