Top 20 Albums

A few months ago I read Mr Robert Hendy’s top 10 albums list (found here). After reading it I felt that I should produce one of my own. So, now that my exams are done I have produced such a list.

I couldn’t keep it to 10 though, so I’ve done a top 20. Favourite songs from each album are also given along with year of original release:

1.Porcupine Tree – In Absentia
(2003, Trains)
2. Amplifier – Amplifier
(2004, Motorhead)
3. Pink Floyd – The Dark Side of the Moon
(1973, Time)
4.Pure Reason Revolution – The Dark Third
(2006, The Bright Ambassadors of Morning)
5. Opeth – Blackwater Park
(2001, Bleak)
6. Porcupine Tree – Stupid Dream
(1999, Stranger by the Minute)
7. Anathema – Judgement
(1999, Wings of God)
8. King Crimson – Red
(1974, Starless)
9. Nine Inch Nails – The Fragile
(1999, Into the Void)
10. Secret Machines – Now Here Is Nowhere
(2004, Sad and Lonely)

11. R.E.M. – Automatic for the People
(1992, Man on the Moon)
12. Yes – Close to the Edge
(1972, Siberian Khatru)
13. Mew – And the Glass Handed Kites
(2005, Apocalypso)
14. Blue States – Nothing Changes Under the Sun
(2001, The Trainer Shuffle)
15. Led Zeppelin – Physical Graffiti
(1975, Kashmir)
16. Turin Brakes – The Optimist LP
(2001, Mind over Money)
17. Porcupine Tree – Fear of a Blank Planet
(2007, Sleep Together)
18. Radiohead – OK Computer
(1997, Airbag)
19. Jeff Buckley – Grace
(1994, Grace)
20. Live – Throwing Copper
(1994, I Alone)

Albums by Immune, The Mars Volta, Doves, Mansun and Dredg all came close. Also my favourite EP is Silver by Jesu and my favourite compilation is Early Days & Latter Days by Led Zeppelin. Obviously this list is likely to be changed in the future!
