    It's just a snapshot - I've got albums by JME, Wiley Skepta, Double E, Scorcher etc. etc.

    Just that it happens to be one of my most played albums on iTunes. :dontknow:

    Brainwashed and Runaway are definite favourites.
    I like Wiley. He and Dizzee are miles ahead of everyone else in Grime music.

    Boy In Da Corner is one of my favourite albums actually I should have posted that too. 10 years old and still as relevant today as it was back then, entirely self-produced and completely innovative, and he was 17!



    We used to fight with kids from other estates, now 8 millimetres settle debates
    Absolutely brilliant. Why did he have to change

    Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not. There's not a song on it I don't like, still sounds fashionable 7? years on.

    Reverend & The Makers - A French Kiss in the Chaos.

    Yes, I do like my Sheffield bands... especially with the fact RATMs lead singer is a massive Sheffield Wednesday fan. (and all the Arctic Monkeys are!)

    You've got similar taste in Rock to me and the Velvets are my favourite band, some of those albums I haven't heard so I will now be downloading them.

    The lack of David Bowie makes me though.

    I rate the VU very highly, there's not a single song on that particular album that I don't like . Impossible to choose a favourite song from it but I do love 'Sunday Morning' as the opener, it sets the tone of the album fantastically. I do want to buy their Loaded album but I'm worried it won't live up to how great VU&N is.

    Ah, this will make you further then as I've always been more of a Bolan fan than a Bowie fan Although in all fairness I only know a handful of Bowie songs and own two T-Rex albums. I have a loooong list of albums that I want to buy so I should give him more of a fair chance really and add Bowie to the list, what's is your favourite album of his?

    I listened to TVUAN first before any other VU album and my favourite track was Sunday Morning too, along with All Tomorrow's Parties, I'll Be Your Mirror and Femme Fatale. I think from what you said you'd love Loaded (so buy it immediately ), here's a track from it - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osOq7G-fiY8 . I also like 'VU', I think it came out years afterwards as it's a compilation album that was full of out-takes and it has this track on it. It's another brilliant album.

    As for Bowie, I'd say my favourite album is The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. It's just perfect and it's the album that turned me into a Bowie nut, if you like the Glam Rock thing I'd go for that first. Hunky Dory and Aladdin Sane are very good too. Here is a track from Ziggy - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFDj3shXvco . 'Heroes' and 'Low' are also brilliant (as is everything he did in the 70s) but not Glam Rock, they are more experimental.

    Radiohead - Kid A
    Kraftwerk - Trans Europe Express
    Miles Davis - In A Silent Way
    Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here

    So there's a top ten of sorts, subject to change quite a bit. The top 4 are the only ones that I would definitely put there on any given day and I can't pick a favourite out of them. That's also with me not allowing myself to repeat artists, so honourable mentions to:

    Fear Of Music
    Sister, Goo
    OK Computer, In Rainbows
    Kind Of Blue, Bitches Brew
    Radioactivity, The Man Machine
    The Wall, Meddle
    Merriweather Post Pavilion
