I'm counting on Darkness_Fish et all for the complete Dalek-victory.

If Absence isn't top 5, I'd be pretty shocked. Wasn't my number one though.

I have it at #9...That combined with your vote will probably make up all it's scoring...lol...

The Love Below is thunderingly overrated.

Better list so far than I thought, considering BCB's general aversion to hip hop.

Nope. It's high on my list.

Completely forgot about Boogie Down Productions! That was a cool record!

Great batch, this latest. I'm surprised at To Pimp a Butterfly landing outside the top 10 considering how much of a landmark album that's become in the past few years in its genre, and deservedly so. Illmatic also nearly made the cut in my list, I believe I had it at #21-22. Curious about the top 10!

There's lots that nearly made my list (Pharcyde, BDP, Nas) but I think I ended up with quite an unimaginative one in the end.

Colour me shocked. Remarkably low.

Well, I’m pretty impressed by this list so far. Perhaps it’s the rap equivalent of Revolver, Pet Sounds, yada yada but it feels fresh.

I was listening to The Cold Vein just the other day. Why didn't I vote for it? Duh!

Key track - 'Strictly Business'


I'm surprised Strictly Business didn't get a few more votes; it ticks every box for me, and sounds just as good today as it did 30 years ago.
