Over the Counter Culture

4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)

A Certain Trigger
5.  A Certain Trigger by Maxmo Park
The list author says:

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (49 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

The New Fellas
6.  The New Fellas by The Cribs

Fever To Tell
8.  Fever To Tell by Yeah Yeah Yeahs

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews)

Youth And Young Manhood
9.  Youth And Young Manhood by Kings of Leon

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (111 customer reviews)

Everything Is
10.  Everything Is by Nine Black Alps
The list author says:

Employment
11.  Employment by Kaiser Chiefs

Elevator
15.  Elevator by Hot Hot Heat

The Futureheads
16.  The Futureheads by Futureheads

Up the Bracket
21.  Up the Bracket by The Libertines
The list author says:
  "The album that spawned an abundance of stupidly good British bands. It's a cliche, but this album does make you feel good to be alive. More important than Is This It, in meine meinung."

Highly Evolved [Australian Import]
23.  Highly Evolved [Australian Import] by The Vines
