My fave albums of all time (in no particular order)

A Listmania! list by Phil Carr "untsboo" (Widnes, England)
 
Heartwork
1.  Heartwork by Carcass
The list author says:
  "Scouse death metal at its finest. Their best album, closely followed by Swansong."
£8.99   Used & New from: £6.37
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Debut
2.  Debut by Björk
The list author says:
  "I still think she has never bettered this, her debut album."
£4.30   Used & New from: £0.21
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (34 customer reviews)

Electronic
3.  Electronic by Electronic
The list author says:
  "Perfection. Classic Johnny Marr guitar playing and better-than-normal vocals from New Order's Bernard Sumner"
£7.89   Used & New from: £0.25
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews)

Dare
4.  Dare by Human League
The list author says:
  "Classic electro-pop album, probably influenced a lot of lesser acts in the 80's. They never really seemed to achieve the same success after this."
£6.52   Used & New from: £1.26
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews)

Philip Oakey & Giorgio Moroder
5.  Philip Oakey & Giorgio Moroder by Philip Oakey
The list author says:
  "Although Human League are one of my fave electronic bands I'd say this is better than most of their albums. Very cheesy, typical Moroder synths, some terrible lyrics, but despite this it's a classic!"
£7.54   Used & New from: £4.57
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Nightbird
6.  Nightbird by Erasure
The list author says:
  "A return to form for one on my top 5 fave artists ever. Since Chorus they have had some patchy albums but this is up there with their best work. Beautiful melodies and arrangements."
£6.99   Used & New from: £0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (28 customer reviews)

The Chemical Wedding
7.  The Chemical Wedding by Bruce Dickinson
The list author says:
  "The best thing Bruce has done outside of Iron Maiden. In fact, although Maiden are my fave band I'd say as an overall album it's better than many of their own efforts! Any metal/rock fan must own this"
£9.10   Used & New from: £4.30
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Balls To Picasso
8.  Balls To Picasso by Bruce Dickinson
The list author says:
  "This is his second solo LP (but his first after leaving Maiden in '93) and it's still one of his best. Many fans didn't like the grungier sound but don't listen to them, it's a nice change from Maiden"
£7.48   Used & New from: £7.00
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Raise the Pressure
9.  Raise the Pressure by Electronic
The list author says:
  "Their second album, not quite as good as their first but a classic nevertheless. Maybe a bit overlong but the quality songwriting, great synth sounds and top notch performances are still there"
£8.87   Used & New from: £0.98
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (15 customer reviews)

Solidify
10.  Solidify by Grip Inc.
The list author says:
  "Dave Lombardo on drums is enough to make it a classic. Coupled with fine songwriting, awesome musicianship and attitude, there's not many brutal metal records that can better this."
£27.78   Used & New from: £23.95
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Odyssey of the Mind
11.  Odyssey of the Mind by Die Krupps
The list author says:
  "Perfect blend of metal and electronic music, they started out industrial then eventually brought heavy guitars into the mix, creating this blend of my two favourite styles of music."
£18.00   Used & New from: £6.13

The X-Factor
12.  The X-Factor by Iron Maiden
The list author says:
  "Not many people, even die-hard Maiden fans, would agree with me, but I still stand by this debut for Blaze Bayley as being one of the finest things Maiden ever did."
£8.49   Used & New from: £3.98
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (43 customer reviews)

Heart And Soul Box Set
13.  Heart And Soul Box Set by Joy Division
The list author says:
  "The perfect introduction to one of the finest acts to come out of Manchester. This will really get you into them if you've not heard much. Basically everything they recorded, with a few exceptions."
£22.84   Used & New from: £10.00
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Technique
14.  Technique by New Order
The list author says:
  "New Order's finest album bar none. They have some fantastic tracks on other albums, but as a whole this is a masterpiece mix of organic and electronic indie/alternative music."
£12.99   Used & New from: £0.99
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Chorus
15.  Chorus by Erasure
The list author says:
  "I believe that Erasure will never better this. They've come close since, but this is the pop partnership at their creative peak."
£12.93   Used & New from: £0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Actually
16.  Actually by Pet Shop Boys
The list author says:
  "This was a dificult choice, as PSB are one of my all time fave acts. If I had to say listen to only one album by them, it would be this."
Used & New from: £6.95
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (40 customer reviews)

Year of the Cat
17.  Year of the Cat by Al Stewart
The list author says:
  "For awesome singer/songwriter music, you can't go wrong with this. It may be more commercial than his other releases, but what the hell. Top songwriting with feeling."
£7.54   Used & New from: £5.21
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (31 customer reviews)

Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
18.  Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son by Iron Maiden
The list author says:
  "Not just my fave Maiden album of all time, but probably my fave album of all time. Just the right length, just the right mix of dynamics, awesome musicianship, top songwriting, great imagery, perfect."
£7.78   Used & New from: £1.98
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (83 customer reviews)
