My life on celluloid (up to age 13)

Blur

"Their best album. In my view, the Best Of didn't represent their best songs. 2nd - Parklife, 3rd - 13, 4th -  Modern Life Is Rubbish."

"Never heard of the band or always wanted to get into them? Start here, and then progress through. His new solo album is also good, but has some boring tracks in the middle."
Word Gets Around

"Superb debut, dreadful follow-ups. The theory is that he put too many great songs with great lyrics on the first album!"

"Children is atmospheric, Unbelievable just fun and Girl Of An Age moving. The singer may be a bit annoying, but what other bands these days are cool enough to use Burt & Ernie between songs?"
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
"Yes, yes, not the best AND overrated. Revolver is the best album, but this can be used as a fine example of a band enjoying their art."
Graceland

"Groovy, but meant so much more to the Western market than that. No longer did white mainstream artists have to live in four-piece rock bands if they wanted to be taken seriously."
A Secret History ... The Best Of The Divine Comedy
A Secret History ... The Best Of The Divine Comedy
"Die-hard Comedy fans won't like this, but to someone who came in late in the day like me, this is superbly performed, produced and chosen. Wit is absent in much of modern music."
In It For The Money

"This just edges out I Should Coco because I tend to prefer albums with a variety of styles rather than just pure pop brilliance. The last album was pretty mediocre unfortunately."
King of Fools

"They rehashed this recently, but Sanctify is a great song whatever your personal faith and Delirious have been representing Christianity well in the mainstream, however dodgy their look has got!"
Urban Hymns
Urban Hymns
"Not a great album, but singles that represent a time where the last dregs of Britpop finally dried up, probably after Lucky Man. The Drugs Don't Work was number 1 the week after Diana died."
Melting Pot

"I love best ofs because they only look at a band's good moments. This has got them all. I ignored Wonderland because for old fans it seemed a bit like a slap in the face really..."
The Bends

"In my opinion, this is better than OK Computer because no song gets on my nerves like Climbing Up The Walls and Exit Music (For A Film) do. Makes making your own music seem possible."
Bring It On

"Gomez are a great band, but they need to get out and get some new ideas for tunes! It's all production these days. I can't choose between the first two albums, they're both excellent."
One Day at a Time E.P.

"Ultra-rare, but an unsung heroes of mid-90s guitar music. This is where I first fell in love with rock music's diversity of styles. Ska to punk to pop and back again!"

"Take That had one fantastic single (Never Forget), but E-17 were more diverse (!) . It's a sad refelction on our single buying that Stay Another Day is the best Christmas number one of the 90s!"
Flood

"Crazy Americans have never, and will never, sound so great. I just really love Birdhouse In Your Soul, it reminds me of childhood..."

"Hangin' Tough was my first single. Call It What You Want is good. We still listen to their Christmas album (highlight: Funky Funky Xmas) and if you were young when I was you'll understand the appeal."

"I didn't get Sky or cable till last year, so I never got to watch the Simpsons. But my dad copied this from a guy at work, we lost the tape and I only recently bought it again. It's just fun music!"
Back To The Future: Part 2 [VHS] [1989]
Back To The Future: Part 2 [VHS] [1989]
"The best of the trilogy, simply brilliant as a starting point for understanding complicated plots. Criticised and underrated, thisis really exciting for a kid, moreso than the other more adult films."
Et - The Extra Terrestrial [VHS] [1982]

"I think I might just be able to watch it without crying right now, but it remains magical. Invented BMXs as the coolest thing on the planet."
Bill And Ted's Bogus Journey [1991] [VHS] [1992]
Bill And Ted's Bogus Journey [1991] [VHS] [1992]
"Only better than the first one in that it has a great ending, with the best soundtrack song I had witnessed in my young life. Little did I know who Kiss ACTUALLY were..."
Speed [VHS] [1994]
Speed [VHS] [1994]
"Not for Keanu Reeves, but for its status as the number one action movie with a great concept. I love the bit where she runs over the pram, hahaha."
More Than Just A Game: Best Of Sporting **** Ups [VHS]
More Than Just A Game: Best Of Sporting **** Ups [VHS]
"Possibly the funniest attempt to make a bloopers video in the history of Western Civilisation. So bad it's funny. Great for running jokes with mates."

"I was a glory boy and this was my stimulus. Simply superb football, no matter what your allegiance. 1999 was a more succesful year for the club, but this is where the domestic domination REALLY began."
