Foreigner
3.  Foreigner by Yusuf/Cat Stevens
The list author says:

Space Ritual Alive In London
6.  Space Ritual Alive In London by Hawkwind

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (94 customer reviews)

Dummy

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (71 customer reviews)

The Psychedelic Furs

The Psychomodo
11.  The Psychomodo by Cockney Rebel

Talking Heads 77
12.  Talking Heads 77 by Talking Heads

£5.63   Used & New from: £3.94

Acquiring the Taste
14.  Acquiring the Taste by Gentle Giant

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Pampered Menial
15.  Pampered Menial by Pavlov's Dog
The list author says:
  "Mid 70's symphonic to the extreme. Is he a castrati, or what? Sounds great, anyway. Second record is fine but not as good and the rest are best forgotten."
£11.34   Used & New from: £4.06
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

The Modern Dance
16.  The Modern Dance by Pere Ubu

4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

O Espirito da Paz
18.  O Espirito da Paz by Madredeus
The list author says:
  "Well, I'm portuguese. Had to include something from Portugal and there wasn't much to choose from in Amazon...No, honestly, this is GOOD. Extremely moody or boring, depending on your perspective."

4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Wildflowers
19.  Wildflowers by Connie Price & the Keystones

The Age Of The Understatement
20.  The Age Of The Understatement by The Last Shadow Puppets
The list author says:

4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (59 customer reviews)

Emergent
21.  Emergent by Gordian Knot

Byron: Bug Music
22.  Byron: Bug Music by Don Byron

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Snow Borne Sorrow
23.  Snow Borne Sorrow by Nine Horses

The Budos Band II
24.  The Budos Band II by The Budos Band

£11.97   Used & New from: £7.26
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Marquee Moon
25.  Marquee Moon by Television
