I love both but Odelay just edged it as it captures Beck in his prime, doing what he does best. Midnite Vultures borrows a little too much from the 80s and other artists. I agree about his later work though, I hope Colors was a one-off and not the start of a bland period.

Thanks for the tip, I'll check that out. Their second album is on Spotify. I'm working on the third list which will take me a while, it's getting more obscure.

My problem with The Beatles albums is that there's always a really annoying track or two on them. Even Revolver has Yellow Submarine which has to be skipped. The White Album would be a brilliant single album if they ditched all the crap like Ob-la-di... My order would be: [list=1] [*]Revolver Rubber Soul Magical Mystery Abbey Road Sgt Pepper [/list] I'm not a fan of the early albums as my parents played them to death.

It looks like everyone who got into them in the 80s prefers their 80s stuff over the 90s. They really do split opinion depending on your entry point.

I expected a Telescopes-like head bludgeoning after reading 'turn it up to 11'. It's more Slowdive than Jesus & Mary Chain in places. Very good album though.

I'd add Coil's Time Machines to this, it's the mother of all Drone records.

It's one album per artist, 100 artists. I agree I'd have !!! in there but it's impossible to cover 20 years in 100 albums. Part 2 will follow in a few weeks.

Quite a lot of albums here I'm unfamiliar with. Lots to discover. So much great music being released.

I don't really find any album depressing. I mean Ian Curtis topped himself while listening to The Idiot so maybe there's something in there but I love that album and just don't see it. As mentioned in the other list, Lou Reed's Berlin is pretty grim but only three tracks near the end. While we're on the subject, what was on Kurt Cobain's turntable when they found his body? I'll give you a clue, it's not on this list.

I also find it interesting that everyone commenting, with the opposite opinion to mine, is in the US. I wonder if my choices are more in line with UK fans? Or if it's just that I prefer that Green to Monster period?
