Top Ten Albums

Postby ExRat » Sun Dec 05, 2004 10:53 am

I know, I know. We've already covered this topic about 20 times. But, this forum was in dire need of a new topic and since some of us are a bit fickle, I figured I would give it another go. So, what are your top ten album choices? Here are my top ten:

10. "Desperate Character" - Kirsty MacColl
9. "Broken English" - Marianne Faithfull
8. "Eternally Yours" - Saints
7. "English Settlement" - XTC
6. "If I Should Fall From Grace With God" - The Pogues
5. "Blank Generation" - Richard Hell and the Voidoids
4. "Horses" - Patti Smith
3. "Fireside Favourites" - Fad Gadget
2. "Unknown Pleasures" - Joy Division
1. "Ramones" - Ramones
