The Only Ten Albums You'll Ever Need

James Randerson "cupboardmonkey"
 
OK Computer

"Quite simply the most outstanding, emotionally provocative album since my birth (at least). Presume deafness or severe ignorance at the very least of anyone who says otherwise. Listen and u will see."
Parachutes

"A dangerous debut. So open and yet so private. This is the only album in my collection which I can do nothing else to whilst it is on. Like a black boxer, bet against Coldplay at your own risk."
Is This It?
Is This It?
"Lively, is an understatement so criminal that it's utterrers should be subjected to long periods of water torture. Strokes kick the monkey out of everything else even close to their genre."
The Sophtware Slump

"An album of quirky sonic-bleep-esque sound bites which somehow manages to retain enough artistic brilliance to sink a battleship. He's Simple..., is outstanding, justifying it's use in many TV shows."
White Blood Cells

"The entire album sounds like it was recorded in a rusty bucket, and that is the genius of the Stripes. They are raw, they are cool, they are awesome and I really don't think they give a damn."
The Hour Of Bewilderbeast

"Don't let the media friendly single releases of the BDB affect any decisions you might have to buy this album. A multitude of quiet, melodic and acoustic tones are used, and he perfects it."

"You probably haven't heard of them, but you want to have done, you REALLY do! Radiohead On prozac, if such a thing were even possible."
The Joshua Tree

"Like marmite, you either love them or you hate them (I fall into the latter group) but the music on this album is awe inspiring and worth any strange looks you may get for picking it off the shelf."
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

"In my opinion, no list of top albums is complete without some mention of the Liverpudlian legends. It's all been said before about this album, so just sit down and let the good times roll again."

"What can I say about Moby which hasn't been said before? He's got a full head of hair and a hearty disregard for anything botanical. The best album to get caned to, although I'm open for alternatives."
