^^^ I've heard great things about Sylvian's solo work though I never got into it. Maybe I should someday...

Interesting list, though not without its flaws. Of ALL DM albums, you choose A BROKEN FRAME?? Arguably, no DEFINITELY, their weakest! I prefer Brighten the Corners to Wowee Zowee (love Pavement), the Verve's "Urban Hymns" is miles better than any of their other albums, and Computerwelt is better than the Man-Machine IMO. Having said that, Trans-Europe Express is probably better than both.
