NME's Top 20 albums

Here's the list of the NME's Top 20  albums the below post referred to. It's interesting to note the Libertine's entry and that of the Strokes. Over time they will likely drop out because they are currently 'trendy' and not really great albums (not that I've heard 'em). Never listened to Revolver - I might check it out.
I'm surprised there's no Rolling Stones? This is a British based list, I wonder what a recent American one would look like.  Probably have fucking Kanye West all over it.

The top 20:

1. Definitely Maybe, Oasis
2. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band, The Beatles
3. Revolver, The Beatles
4. OK Computer, Radiohead
5. (What's The Story) Morning Glory?, Oasis
6. Nevermind, Nirvana
7. The Stone Roses, The Stone Roses
8. Dark Side Of The Moon, Pink Floyd
9. The Queen Is Dead, Smiths
10. The Bends, Radiohead
11. The Joshua Tree, U2
12. London Calling, The Clash
13. The Beatles (The White Album), The Beatles
14. Abbey Road, The Beatles
15. Up The Bracket, The Libertines
16. Never Mind The Bollocks Here's The Sex Pistols, Sex Pistols
17. Four Symbols (Led Zeppelin IV), Led Zeppelin
18. The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars, David Bowie
19. A Night At The Opera, Queen
20. Is This It, The Strokes

um the strokes are from nY jimmy, total waste of time the libertines are one of those 'hip' bands with not much talent and about 3 descent songs. dumb lists from people with too much time. some deacent stuff obviously bowie and clash but y'know these things are stoopid really, and obviously written by a pom in his late 20's early 30's.
