Every? Where's his eponymous 1969 debut solo album? Wondering if its an accidental or deliberate omission? Old Laughing Lady, The Loner and I've Been Waiting For You are all classics in my book. Otherwise, great list. Of course, these things are always subjective and my top 5 would be: Everybody Knows, Harvest, Neil Young, Tonight's The Night and On The Beach.

Always interested to see a fellow Costello fan's ranking. I love King of America. Also adore Trust, which I think tends to be underrated by critics and the public at large. Imperial Bedroom tops my list simply because it was my introduction. Get Happy and Model I tend to crank the most. Blood & Chocolate is his darkest and edgiest best. That said, while overproduced and slight in places, I still find Punch The Clock irresistible. Same goes for Armed Forces.

Great review. Its hard to believe now but there was a time when no one knew who he was. The fact he grows more popular with each year is a testament to his work and how it continues to touch so many people so deeply. I bought my first TVZ in the mid 90's because I liked the cover. I had no idea who he was. It knocked me for an unexpected loop. Was life changing. This release is a dream come true for fans. So damn good.

Thanks! Love Planet Waves. A great album that tends to be overlooked.

Nice to see Iceage and Costello made the grade! I'll take Mark Lanegan's With Animals and Caroline Rose's Loner over Father John Misty & Jack White, though.

While I don't share your Prog enthusiasm, I do love this album. Life preserver indeed. When I think of the great albums of the 80's, this tops the list. Game changer for me. Been an XTC fan ever since.

Great review. All Rock is Folk music. If it isn't Folk music, its lost. Without Jansch there would be no modern Rock. He was a huge influence on Jimmy Page, Neil Young, Paul Simon, Nick Drake and Johnny Marr. Among others. He brought Folk into the 20th. Was an innovator more than a traditionalist

I'm a massive Clash fan. I think they were simply one of the greatest bands in Rock history. London Calling being their pinnacle. That said, I've always been drawn more to Joe's over Mick's solos stuff. There's some fab stuff on this collection.
