I think that the absurd "politics" of The Holy Bible have helped it to age quite noticeably. Still a great record, though.

I honestly don't even engage it on that level. I've always found their politics kind of vague and intro-to-marxism-lite anyway. It sounds airy and ambiguous, but I think it's the passion and sheer venmous bile on some tracks that keeps the asburdity, as you put it, from making it feel aged to me.

i know Lost Souls by Doves was only released 9 years ago, but i think this album sounds like it could have been released yesterday.

Agree. This and Rattlesnakes by Lloyd Cole and the Commotion have aged well.

Surprised nobody mentioned this one -

OK Computer

Still sounds like it's from some distant point in the future from another reality, a future we'll never see.
