    It was a tough decision, but I left out With The Beatles since it's already covered with Meet the Beatles and The Beatles Second Album. I didn't want to be excessive or anything.

    I got Meet The Beatles for a few euros last week on the Apple label.

    The track listing on side 1 is great !

    I was thinking ...has there been a top ten Beatles album covers thread here ?

    Okay, I've just gotta ask . . . why does someone in the UK prefer the US albums and track listings? :)

    Ok, here's my list. I already made a top 30 list a few months ago for a Belgian music forum, so I used that list as a good starting point for making this Top 100. As a starting point, because on that forum we were only allowed to use one album per artist, which made it even more difficult. The rule I made for myself is that I only mentioned albums I enjoyed and listened the most in the 21st century. So sorry, no Beatles, Beach Boys, Kinks,... in my list. It's been too long since I listened to those albums. And what a difference with my Top 100 list from exactly 10 years ago! Nirvana's 'Nevermind' topped my list back then, followed by Pearl Jam's 'Ten'...

    Anyway, I think this list reflects my musical taste from the last 10 years very good:

    BigDave,

    If it's something you could add relatively easily to your tabulation of all of these top 50-100 lists, could you add a note next to titles that were voted number #1 on certain lists?

    I'm thinking of something like what the NCAA college sports polls do, if you're familiar with those. Something like this:

    1. Ohio State (52)
    2. Florida (3)
    3. Michigan
    4. UCLA (1)
    5. Rutgers

    In the above, completely hypothetical example, the number in parentheses notes how many of the poll's voters submitted the team as their #1 pick.

    I suggest this because it might be interesting to see that several people voted a certain album as their #1, even if it doesn't make the top 20 (or top 50 or whatever). . . .

    If it's too much trouble at this point, don't worry about it! I don't want to feel guilty adding to your workload. ;)

    Rules question: My 15-year old son has been fascinated by this project, and has been compiling his own top 50 list. Because I've successfully brainwashed him, he has similar (but not identical) tastes. Can his list be posted in addition to mine? Or is it forum members only?
     
  9. I'd say around four, maybe five. I think many of us could predict most of the top 10 without even reading through this thread.

    Here's a question for my list: would Gary Wilson's FORGOTTEN LOVERS qualify? It's a compilation of tracks originally issued only extremely rare, privately pressed 45s and EPs, but never on full-length media before this CD.

    That's very likely true. I'm looking forward much more to see what surprises show up after the top 10. Which is why I'm really glad that BigDave is going to publish the complete listing of every single album that received a vote.

    :thumbsup: This is one of the darkest albums I've ever heard, so depressing that I rarely listen to it nowadays. I prefer The Winding Sheet as an album (and that one made my top 100), but the high points of Whiskey for the Holy Ghost are probably even better.

    I must've listened to it a zillion times since i bought it when it was released. I Love all of Lanegan's albums (I'll take care of you, Bubblegum and Ballad of the broken seas made it also to my list and it's with pain in my heart that I didn't mention 'Scraps at midnight', 'Field songs', 'Here comes that weird chill' and 'The winding sheet'), but 'whiskey for the holy ghost' always does it for me. Especially on dark, rainy nights and during Fall & Winter time.

    Glad to see even more Gortian participation!

    Cast is a band I know little about...I got the "All Change" album after hearing "Alright" on MTV...I really liked the album (pure pop goodness), but never heard anything else of them (pre-SHTV), and never followed up. Interesting; I think I'll pull it out of the archives since I see three in your top 40!

    I see Abbey Road coming in at number one. And strong showings for Highway 61 Revisited and Who's Next. But, yeah, that probably could have been predicted before the thread even started.

    I was already planning on putting who gave the selection its highest ranking when the list starts. So in theory, that should accomplish what you are asking for.
