Record collection, vol. 1

A Listmania! list by devonlad
 
Under the Iron Sea
1.  Under the Iron Sea by Keane
The list author says:
  "We all got a bit annoyed with Keane after their debut and some will never like them, but this follow-up is a vast improvement. Much greater longevity than 'Hopes And Fears'."
£3.99   Used & New from: £0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (169 customer reviews)

Collected - The Best Of Massive Attack : Greatest Hits
2.  Collected - The Best Of Massive Attack : Greatest Hits by Massive Attack
The list author says:
  "It is impossible to sum up the life of a band like Massive Attack on one CD, but 'Collected' is a good effort. Nevertheless, if you have the money, buy all the studio albums instead!"
£5.05   Used & New from: £1.00
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (53 customer reviews)

Eyes Open
3.  Eyes Open by Snow Patrol
The list author says:
  "A much more melodic and, dare I say it, better album than 'Final Straw'. Most of the UK music press have dismissed but don't believe the negative hype - this is one of 2006's best so far."
£4.40   Used & New from: £0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (167 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

The Roads Don't Love You
4.  The Roads Don't Love You by Gemma Hayes
The list author says:
  "I won't lie, this is basically easy-listening. Gemma Hayes will never be a brilliant singer-songwriter but she does craft pleasent albums and has a beautiful, unique voice."
£9.99   Used & New from: £0.08
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Happenstance
5.  Happenstance by Rachael Yamagata
The list author says:
  "Wonderful. One of the most confident and self-assured debuts I've ever heard. This should be hugely famous - barely a bad track on the album. Rachel Yamagata is brilliant."
£4.95   Used & New from: £0.39
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (14 customer reviews)

Veneer
6.  Veneer by José González
The list author says:
  "Yep, even the emo kids bought this for 'Heartbeats'. It's a nice enough album but I'm just including it to make a point - there are many superior acoustic albums to this! Look at the rest of this list"
£6.55   Used & New from: £0.71
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (82 customer reviews)

Separate Ways
7.  Separate Ways by Teddy Thompson
The list author says:
  "And by a huge coincidence, here's one of them! Being the son of folk legends Richard and Linda, it's no surprise Teddy's second album is as good as it is."
£7.78   Used & New from: £0.85
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

On Every Street
8.  On Every Street by Dire Straits
The list author says:
  "Obviously nothing compared to 'Brothers In Arms', etc., but any Knopfler's better than no Knopfler!"
£5.30   Used & New from: £0.74
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (38 customer reviews)

Not Alone
9.  Not Alone by Julia Biel
The list author says:
  "Scandalously unknown jazz/soul singer with a fantastic backing band, including possibly the UK's best drummer, who you may know from Acoustic Ladyland."
£13.58   Used & New from: £5.01
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
10.  Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not by Arctic Monkeys
The list author says:
  "One of the best mainstream new rock bands to emerge for a long time. The Arctics are absolutely brilliant lyricists - the first band to truly capture the spirit of the noughties on record."
£14.08   Used & New from: £1.00
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (331 customer reviews)

Comfort Of Strangers
11.  Comfort Of Strangers by Beth Orton
The list author says:
  "Good to see Beth go back to her acoustic roots. This is her best album for awhile."
£25.48   Used & New from: £2.20
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)

Einaudi: Le Onde
12.  Einaudi: Le Onde by Ludovico Einaudi
The list author says:
  "The pretentious classical lot don't like this. They say it's 'simplistic' and 'minimalist'...But sod 'em. It's beautiful, that's all you need to know. Worth the price for the title track alone."
£9.99   Used & New from: £2.75
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

Eye To The Telescope
13.  Eye To The Telescope by KT Tunstall
The list author says:
  "One of the few artists with genuine crossover ability. Appeals to almost everyone - fans of pop, rock, and singer-songwriter music."
£2.81   Used & New from: £0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (115 customer reviews)

The Life Pursuit
14.  The Life Pursuit by Belle & Sebastian
The list author says:
  "Legendary band. And very consistent. Their newest album doesn't disappoint."
£14.99   Used & New from: £1.00
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)

Catching Tales
15.  Catching Tales by Jamie Cullum
The list author says:
  "Not a bad album but nothing compared to 'Twentysomething'. Nothing special."
£6.99   Used & New from: £0.14
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Speak for Yourself
16.  Speak for Yourself by Imogen Heap
The list author says:
  "Impressive album. Possibly a bit too California-fied for an Essex girl but the fact that the album is so technologically complex is made even more impressive when you know that she alone produced it."
Used & New from: £0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (52 customer reviews)

Magpie
17.  Magpie by Stephen Fretwell
The list author says:
  "Gorgeous. One of the best singer-songwriters to emerge for ages. Pure acoustic goodness."
£3.99   Used & New from: £0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)

Their Law: The Singles 1990-2005
18.  Their Law: The Singles 1990-2005 by The Prodigy
The list author says:
  "For the corrupt, rebellious bit in all of us."
£6.72   Used & New from: £0.93
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

Hitstory [Deluxe Edition]
19.  Hitstory [Deluxe Edition] by Elvis Presley
The list author says:
  "Easily the most comprehensive Elvis collection there is. 90 songs on 3 CDs. He was really a very good artist who[se writers] did a lot for music - shame he's not really remebered for that."
£40.58   Used & New from: £5.33
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Life in Slow Motion
20.  Life in Slow Motion by David Gray
The list author says:
  "Another unfairly treated songwriter. This is a HUGE improvement on 'A New Day At Midnight'. Has some cracking tracks on."
£3.60   Used & New from: £0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (54 customer reviews)

Your Big Day
21.  Your Big Day by John Egdell
The list author says:
  "One of music's best kept secrets! The sweetest, most beautiful record released last year, I reckon. Contains 16 songs and lasts for little over 30 minutes, but that compliments the album wonderfully."
£10.44   Used & New from: £0.50
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Jimmy Eat World
22.  Jimmy Eat World by Jimmy Eat World
The list author says:
  "Sooo much better than your standard 'Emo' band (God, I hate that word). This is real emotion and real talent."
£13.02   Used & New from: £1.72
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (59 customer reviews)

Trouble
23.  Trouble by Ray LaMontagne
The list author says:
  "Grrr. Bought this album about 18 months ago and now he's huge! Hate it when that happens! Anyway, this is the best country-tinged album around."
Used & New from: £0.38
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (109 customer reviews)

Over Fly Over
24.  Over Fly Over by Kathryn Williams
The list author says:
  "Probably her worst album but still better than 90% of what's in the charts. Buy everything she has released!"
£9.50   Used & New from: £0.20
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Martha Wainwright
25.  Martha Wainwright by Martha Wainwright
The list author says:
  "Excellent debut album. Folk-pop at its finest. Gets very miserable in places, but that's how I like it!"
£8.69   Used & New from: £0.49
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)
