If Penk had waited a couple more weeks we'd probably have had Pete Wylie's new LP at number 6 or something.


Well there's very little consensus plus we could have used more people voting.

Over the years a lot of the BCbers who actually did keep up with new releases have left sadly.



True.

Anyway - it'll get more interesting. And I'm quite excited to see what the top ten will be. Maybe we'll see that before we get to see our TOP TEN FILMS

I thought it was the most exciting album I had heard since Psychocandy in terms of sonic attack and attitude
It was obviously massively influential
He went home to have huge crossover hits when decided to go commercial
And now he has gone back to basics because the mainstream has finally caught up with him with Raskit

I can understand no liking it if you never got that hippity hoppity rubbish, they don’t even play instrument you know, but it is obviously the most important British album post millennium I don’t think anyone can argue otherwise without looking stupid and the fact that it was in at 99 is absurd and a poor reflection on the atrophied taste of this board

It is things like this that make you dispair of this place, I can imagine not liking this album if you are a hopeless old bore but to deny its central place in modern British music is perverse and stupid

We are voting for albums that we think are good not because they are influential or defined anything.


I know but you would expect more than 2 people on a popular music board to like and enjoy the defining British album of this millennium

But it appears me and Jumper K are the only people on this board who aren’t disgusting muso bores who think Dylan is still releasing good albums

"Obviously"

It is leaden and lumpen and hectoring. Hip hop should have style. This had none. Fucking annoying.

Opinions.

Which means I'm right.

Give me a break you voted for Belle and Sebastian, OK Go Team! and Morrissey. Just because you listed Dizzee Rascal makes you relevant than anyone else here? BS. What I've always claimed about the 00's on is that music is getting very specialized making lists between only a few people all over the place. Two people voted for Dylan and three for Marillion not ten. You can add Bruce, Kate Bush and Magma to that list of old. Otherwise this list is mostly mid 90's artists on which makes it relevant especially on a board that mostly talks rock. Unless you are expecting:

What are we to believe we should all be listing the top selling albums of the times

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_best-selling_albums_of_the_2000s_(century) This site has never been about that even when mentioning 60's and 70's albums. So far none of these albums are on our list. Although I think two or three will make the list,

Please also stop with the influence crap. I could careless with this idea that all albums are only good if they influenced some ass*holes in the future. A good album is a good album and I'll look in any genre to find it. Plenty of great albums in the 60's and 70's were boring too but I love them.

I actually look forward to the final list thanks PENK for doing this!

Springsteen, Morrissey not surprising to see but while like them both they are low on my list of top albums (far from the 30 cut off)
NIce to see Marillion make it thought I would be the only vote.

The Black Keys sort of cancelled themselves out as I like three of their albums.
Neko Case - thought about put this in the top 30.

Nice to see PJ make it- I voted for it but consider her last two albums better; however, knew no one would vote for them so went for the more popular one which I love.

Kate didn't make my list because of her lack of tour. Sorry Kate had to pick bands that I've seen live.

Merriweather Post Pavilion - thought this would be on the list - not my cup of tea and thought they were quite boring live. It's okay album but that's it.

Hadn't heard of Gas before. NIce ambient stuff.


The Ok Go Team well at least their fun to shoot

The idea that us old farts - and that includes all of us, don't kid yourself - should vote based on what's "Influential" and "important" is 100 times more boring than the WORST Dylan album, let alone his best in the last several decades.

Besides, a lot of 'important' records are INCREDIBLY boring - you can start with several that are already up.

I don't give two shits about Marillion, I haven't heard it. I have heard Kid in Da Corner (I bought it). Music for children.

Actually I think there are a fair few voters who are under 40, which means we can certainly remember being teens and twentysomethings when most of this stuff came out.

Why didn't I vote for that Jon Hopkins album? What a twat. That Angels of Light album is an all time great, too, there won't be much better in this list (given that Coil haven't yet appeared).
