    Shocking!!

    I agree with Dizzee Rascal - Boy in da corner. Fucking sick album back in the day, still gets played, and Jay Z - Blueprint.

    Fuck knows, I've only ever heard the Arcade Fire albums. That stuff is no interest to me whatsoever. Madvillain should be in there far better than Dizzy Rascal and The Blueprint.

    I haven't heard most of these but there's some good choices in there.

    Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
    The Streets - Original Pirate Material
    Klaxons - Myths Of The Near Future
    Dizzee Rascal - Boy in Da Corner
    The Coral - The Coral

    those Jay-z and Outkast albums are pretty shite though

    Madvillain, Fishscale, Below The Heavens and Shadows On The Sun are better hip hop albums by far.

    Needs Glasvegas too.

    MIA should be a fuck load higher than that. And her album before that. Both are far too underrated.

    I would rate A Grand Don't Come For Free above The Street's 1st album Original Pirate Material any day. Both of which are the only two albums I have listened to in that list. Radiohead? Doesn't sound like music to me....

    The fact that Absolution by Muse came in lower than the Klaxons/Strokes/Outkast/Artic Butt Monkeys is fucking laughable. NME sucks. Kerrang sucks. Bland uninventive music sucks. Fin.

    I dont care what anybody says...


    The Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I aAm, That's What I'm Not


    Is a very, very good album. exceptional in fact.



    music snobs need to get off their pedestal's, just because something gets recognition doesnt mean it doesnt deserve merit.


    It's not all shit out there. although most of this list doesnt really support the point Im trying to make.

    on a serious note, I actually think Hold Your Colour should be on there. It was full of stonkers, before they did that terrible re-release of it rofl
