Disqualified as it was blatantly just a bunch of rejected demoes from 1991 :)


:( actually came close to making my list.

In regards to Bowie both are nice albums but far from as great as people here think.

Did no one else vote for Richmond Fontaine??

Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Actually those are the ones I haven't! :)

I like Bowie well enough but to be honest he's never been an artist I took too deeply with - there's very few songs from him than mean much to me beyond some general degree of appreciation or enjoyment. Not the case with Blackstar, though, the album just resonated with me like no other of his so far did. Great tunes, great moods, interesting subjects and a very soulful delivery the likes which I've only seen of him in his latter days though never paired with material this good.

Such a disappointing placing for this, my favourite 21st Century album of all. Not enough SW fans voting despite my rallying calls on FB :lol:

Another record that gets little love here but would be Top 5 in most British music media's polls would be Up The Bracket.

It is a fantastic album made by a real band with some interesting ideas and it helped reinvigorate guitar music one last time.

Perhaps people find it difficult to divorce from the soap opera that followed and from the fact that Doherty can be a spectacular and self pitying drug twat.

It is a a good Morrissey album it has two classic Morrissey songs on and he still had fans here when he released it, why wouldn't it be on the list? The only surprise is Ringleader of the Tormentors isn't too. Plus Morrissey doesn't need drugs to be a self pitying twat, unlike Doherty he does it stone cold sober and that is the mark of a man.

I think Moz's spectacular fall from grace is, impact-wise,
exactly like Doherty's. All self -inflicted and deservedly roundly criticised.
To give Morrissey a pass and Doherty not is bollocks- given that, if you rightly say, Up The Bracket is a great record. I think most people forgot about it or it bubbled under the 30 required albums per list.

I voted for both so I am in the clear on this one, I gave both of them a pass for twattish behaviour.

But it does come very near the top of many similar polls.

I think it probably had little impact in the States, came at a time when the demographic on here had seen this sort of thing 3-4 times before at least and tastes on here err towards crepuscular m0gadon rock these days so it was probably a bit noisy for some and made them feel like shaking their fists at young people and reminding them it had been all done a lot better when they were young, which is probably true.

But for the age group it was meant for it was an important album, and I suppose that explains its enduring popularity in musical polls not on BCB.

Utter, utter shit.

Morrissey may be a twat but at least he didn't run away from a possible crime scene (and past the dead body of somebody who had just fallen from the balcony of a party they were at).
