A top 10, with a cheeky Greatest Hits appended as a no 11, because when I was a kid that was one record of my dad's that I played to death, and liberated from his collection when he got rid of his record player. I still think it's kinda fitting that they both died on 3rd February.

1. The Residents - Meet The Residents
2. Harmonia - Musik von Harmonia
3. Hawkwind - Hall of the Mountain Grill
4. Kraftwerk - Autobahn
5. Steeleye Span - Now We Are Six
6. John Coltrane - Interstellar Space
7. Tangerine Dream - Phaedra
8. Velvet Underground - 1969 Velvet Underground Live
9. Eno - Taking Tiger Mountain (Roughly, from behind)
10. Leonard Cohen - New Skin for the Old Ceremony
11. Buddy Holly - Greatest Hits
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

My favorite Queen album by some distance. For some reason I was thinking it was '73 album and Queen I and II were earlier.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?
