I'll give this a go. I think I can come up with 30 Steven Wilson albums without too much trouble.

A few lists driftin' in already (see what I did there?) so thanks to those of you who have put absolutely no thought into it and just cobbled together a list of right old bobbins spent the last fifteen years anally maintaining and updating a personal 'top 100' list been so keen and efficient!

Five lists in so far. Lulu by Lou Reed and Metallica is the clear leader as I write.

Basically once I feel that the "more votes needed"-"how much longer can we wait" line has been crossed.

Bugger. I've just done my short-list of genuine contenders, and it's 87 albums. Not sure how I trim this down.

Bugger, now I'm down to two albums, and one of those is a free CD from Uncut.

At least it’s not a Steven Wilson album.

I had a hard time narrowing down my choices as well. I skewed my list mainly to albums that have some kind of critical acclaim and/or following, rather than hopelessly obscure/unpopular albums that I would have otherwise included. Mainly.

I'm going to keep this at the top by making a daily post with some well-known things from each year under consideration.

Let's start in 2000.

Yeah I cut a few had no chance in hell of getting another vote from anybody.

Yeah, you can save them until we do BCB's Top 100 Third Wave Ska Albums.

Oh, no. This century is too cruel for ska.
We don't deserve a Fourth Wave.
