    Seeing as the majority of you here quite clearly enjoy your music, I
    am curious to know what you would consider the best ten albums of
    the last decade. If possible, please list the ten (not more!) in
    order of preference. As before, only include albums and not
    compilations. Ta
    So to kick us off, I reckon (in my most humblest of opinions):

    1. The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses
    2. What's the Story Morning Glory? - Oasis
    3. OK Computer - Radiohead
    4. Definitely Maybe - Oasis
    5. In Utero - Nirvana
    6. Waking Up the Neighbours - Bryan Adams
    7. The La's - The La's
    8. Word Gets Around - Stereophonics
    9. The Bends - Radiohead
    10. Fuzzy Logic - Super Furry Animals

    Apologies to the Travis, The Smiths and Blur who just missed out.

    I'll probably change my mind tomorrow but...

    1. Always and Forever - Eternal
    2. All Saints - All Saints
    3. Whats the Story... - Oasis
    4. Automatic for the People - REM
    5. Stone Roses - Stone Roses
    6. Big Willy Style - Will Smith
    7. White on Blonde - Texas
    8. The Man Who - Travis
    9. Nevermind - Nirvana
    10. Better Than Raw - Helloween
    Removed: Regulate - Nate Dogg (with Warren G)

    "The Queen is Dead" by The Smiths sadly misses out 'cos its a late
    '80s release.
    Not even 24 hours and I have changed my mind already. I dont know
    how I could have left out Texas. Sorry Nate Dogg!

    HMPH!!!!
    That was Chesney Hawkes!!!
    Curtis was the long haired (yum) sax player who sang "I wonder why"
    and "You're all that matters to me".
    //reminiscing about the Curtis concert

    You?re right of course, but the album is included in most 90?s lists and the singles from that record were released in the UK in 1990. Hence we too included it too.

    Sykes-, I take your point. I'm just fussy about things like that. The Stone Roses happen to be my fave band. I don't know which one I'd get rid of so I could fit it in. Damn my short sightedness!

    Coldplay's "Parachutes" is probably the best album I've heard this year, closely followed by the Doves' "Lost Souls".

    Thanks for the tip Asabrush, I was going to buy the Beatles' 1 album this weekend, so I'll probably get Primal Scream too.

    Once Around The Block by Badly Drawn Boy is a quality track from The Hour Of Bewilderbeast. The album is alittle different but is still great. As for the Beatles, I was going to buy that No1 CD but realised I had most of them already (I'm a bit of a Beatles head).

    I'm a partial to a bit of Morcheeba aswell. Big Calm & Fragments of Freedom are both very good.

    The press seem to have slated Fragments of Freedom, I guess you'd say its not warrented then?

    Hour of the Bewilderbeast is the best album this year...period!!!

    Parachutes although very good is a bit samey and the singer's octave changes get a big annoying after about the fifth listen...

    Don't get me started on Kid A....

    I like Badly Drawn Boy too. 'Once Around The Block' is a cool track and so too is 'Another Pearl', but there are tracks on `Bewilderbeast which don't appeal to me, while I practically love every song on both Parachutes and Lost Souls. Radiohead's Kid-A was a disappointment I agree, the only notable track was Optimistic and even that pales compared to songs from OK Computer and the Bends. As for the fab four, I own Sgt Pepper, Revolver, Abbey Road, Rubber Soul and The Beatles (white album), but a lot of the singles on the 1 record aren't on any of these, so I have decided to buy it!

    Hello Sykes. Best album for me is "In Utero" in the 90's. I'll have to think about the rest of my list.

    Hey LizardKing, good to see you post here. I keep changing my mind about this list. When we started it back at FF, I thought the Bends was my favourite Radiohead album and that Nevermind was my fave Nirvana album.

    Hey, we might like them but not love them!
    Any way I thought FLC's first album was waaaay too long.
    As for Radiohead, it sounds like they wrote a good album and then sat down and decided how to ruin it.

    Yes and it's quite good for a Phonics song (they are massively overrated)

    Oh I see, that explains Cass' "Minx 4 Pho" line. :)

    Andy, so you don't like 'Phonics, the Doves and Coldplay... so what music do you listen to?

    I never said that I didn't like Coldplay - I LOVE Coldplay (it's Travis I don't like). I like different kinds of music :) Just no pop!
