Marvin the Album
3.  Marvin the Album by Frente!
The list author says:
  "The story goes like this...  Boston, MA, killing time in a music shop.  The album starts playing.  1st track blows me away, she's got such a potent voice.  2nd track, ohh!! Give me that album!  :)"
Used & New from: £2.62

15 Minutes
4.  15 Minutes by Nik Kershaw
The list author says:
  "I have to admit I didn't know a lot about Nik Kershaw before I bought this album... heard "Billy" on Guitarist magazine CD... never looked back.  Buy it, this guy is a genius, his best EVER album! :)"
£32.17   Used & New from: £1.77
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Stealing Fire
5.  Stealing Fire by Bruce Cockburn
The list author says:
  "Working in a music store, not much tends to catch your attention immediately.  Although from 1984 and it sounds it, this album hooked me from the word go. Superb! :)"
£10.55   Used & New from: £5.49
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

No Coincidence
6.  No Coincidence by Jocasta
The list author says:
  "These guys should have been huge!  Heard 'Go' on late ITV programme back in 1996 I think, and thought it was a cracker! :)"
£2.84   Used & New from: £0.86
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Lovers Rock
7.  Lovers Rock by Sade
The list author says:
  "the comeback album that proved she still a star, her voice makes me shiver. What I love about it is the production values are no longer 80s and dated.. Shows up the wannabies of today :)"
£4.79   Used & New from: £0.35
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (49 customer reviews)

The Seduction of Claude Debussy
8.  The Seduction of Claude Debussy by Art of Noise
The list author says:
  "Trevor Horn is a genius, if you read this Trevor, I'd love to work with you on a project like this.  William Orbit insulted the crossover classical genre, this is the definitive opus :)"
£9.99   Used & New from: £2.99
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Domino Club
9.  Domino Club by Men They Couldn't Hang
The list author says:
  "I was lent this album in school by my history teacher, i didn't give it back for 2 months.  Folky, pop/rock at its best.  And if you ever see them live, say hi to them they're really nice guys! :)"
£13.99   Used & New from: £3.93
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

MUSIQ (SOULCHILD)-AIJUSWANASING
10.  MUSIQ (SOULCHILD)-AIJUSWANASING by Musiq (Soulchild)
The list author says:
  "This guy has a great voice, make no mistake.  And he sings songs, something which gets lost in this genre all to easily.  Top draw :)"
£9.29   Used & New from: £0.94
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)

Let Your Dim Light Shine
11.  Let Your Dim Light Shine by Soul Asylum
The list author says:
  "Its such a shame they followed this album up with one that really sucked.  But I can't speak more highly of this one though.  Grave Dancers Union too, that's great, but this one just exceeds it :)"
£7.95   Used & New from: £0.01
3.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Rush
12.  Rush by Rush
The list author says:
  "Debut album for Canadian prog rockers Rush.  Boy I wish I could sing as high as Geddy Lee.  :)"
£5.37   Used & New from: £2.05
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews)

Replenish
13.  Replenish by Reef
The list author says:
  "Having seen Reef on late night tv - "the beat" (bring it back!! gary crowley too!) in 1994, I knew they'd be big.  Sadly they're best known for Place Your Hands.  But should be worshipped for this :)"
£8.97   Used & New from: £0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

Fire Garden
14.  Fire Garden by Steve Vai
The list author says:
  "Now firstly, Vai is God. Odd I realise to have a Vai album in a list that doesn't involve other axe heroes but there we go. 'Angel Food'- perhaps the most beautiful work for piano and guitar ever! :)"
£4.94   Used & New from: £0.64
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (15 customer reviews)

Classics
15.  Classics by Warrior Soul
The list author says:

£4.86   Used & New from: £2.27
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

To Be Frank
16.  To Be Frank by Nik Kershaw
The list author says:
  "Ok, so two Kershaw albums. But he really is great songwriter and this album should be a classic. C'mon Nik, where's the follow up to this one?! :)"
£10.26   Used & New from: £4.48
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)

Cornology
17.  Cornology by Bonzo Dog Band
The list author says:
  "No-one has ever filled the gap left in the music industry by the Bonzo Dog Band.  Where would we be without humour and music. Think Python on CD and your close! :)"
Used & New from: £12.00

Luxembourg
18.  Luxembourg by Bluetones
The list author says:
  "Don't knock this album, it may have sold enough to go cardboard just about, but it's by far the best thing they've ever done.  Forget the early material, this album is one great song after next. :)"
Used & New from: £0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

Sk1
19.  Sk1 by Simple Kid
The list author says:
  "Yeh it's a newish release but it's not getting the exposure it deserves.  One of the few albums that has caught my attention whilst at work.  Lots of different influences, I love the track "Drugs" :)"
£4.99   Used & New from: £0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews)

Runaway Horses
20.  Runaway Horses by Belinda Carlisle
The list author says:
  "I'm a sucker for a husky voice!  Whilst most people are probably going to rub there eyes with disbelief that this is here, all I can say is it was good enough for George Harrison to play on! :)"
£6.49   Used & New from: £0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)

Pure
21.  Pure by 3 Colours Red

Mutations
22.  Mutations by Beck
The list author says:
  "He's a funny one, Beck.  You just can't second guess his direction.  This album I'd say is probably the closest to the songwriter beck as there is released so far.  Took me a while, but love it! :)"
£5.22   Used & New from: £0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Troublegum
25.  Troublegum by Therapy?
