Breakfast In America

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (95 customer reviews)

Pink Moon
5.  Pink Moon by Nick Drake
The list author says:

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (85 customer reviews)

Want One
6.  Want One by Rufus Wainwright
The list author says:
  "Sublime, orchestral, playful, transcendent 'pop' (although that seems an insult!) 'Dinner at Eight' soars and aches, while 'O what a world' swoops and quips in triumph. Every song is flawless."

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (61 customer reviews)

Hounds Of Love
7.  Hounds Of Love by Kate Bush
The list author says:
  "You really need never listen to anything else again. Kate's masterpiece-the first half of the album consists of unbearably sumptuous hits, the second is a mini-concept piece. Perfection personified."
Used & New from: £6.95
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (194 customer reviews)

The Queen Is Dead
8.  The Queen Is Dead by The Smiths

Time (The Revelator)
9.  Time (The Revelator) by Gillian Welch
The list author says:
  "Just when the aching, majestical beauty of the opening track gets too hard to bear, the following songs bounce with authentic traditional spirit. Gillian sounds like she IS the Appalachian mountains."

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

The Madcap Laughs
10.  The Madcap Laughs by Syd Barrett

The Best Of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac
11.  The Best Of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac by Fleetwood Mac

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (164 customer reviews)

Salva Nos
12.  Salva Nos by Mediaeval Baebes

3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

Grace
13.  Grace by Jeff Buckley
The list author says:
  "It's pretty much accepted that this is a perfect and essential album. Jeff's voice plummets, soars, towers, threatens and cowers. Each song is totally different and lushly produced. BUY IT!!"
£4.36   Used & New from: £1.35
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (248 customer reviews)

Exile in Guyville
14.  Exile in Guyville by Liz Phair
The list author says:
  "Liz's best album by a long shot. A clever rewrite of the Stones' 'Exile..', each track delivers something different. Shockingly assertive and fragile by turns, this can't be rated highly enough."
Used & New from: £1.78
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Secret People
15.  Secret People by Capercaillie

I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight
16.  I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight by Linda Thompson

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (31 customer reviews)

Grit

The Futureheads

Under The Pink
20.  Under The Pink by Tori Amos

Rid Of Me

Love Is Hell
22.  Love Is Hell by Ryan Adams

Lion And The Cobra
23.  Lion And The Cobra by Sinead O'Connor
