What a thoroughly appalling, tasteless list. I'm also baffled by the absence of Midnight Oil, given their huge reputation here.

I'm just thankful Kylie didn't end up on the list. That would be just typical of some of the drones here.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

I did enjoy this little project. I personally voted for the Stone Roses self-titled and we came in at 30-something which I thought was reasonable.

As preposterous as it might be that Anthony Callea came in at 32 and Goodrem came in at 80-something and Missy Higgins came in at 20-odd, I actually think that this countdown had credibility in the sense that the list appears to have not been fabricated and it has been purely derived from the votes cast. (Unlike triple m's top 2006 countdown or whatever, which was blatantly rigged.)

Was quite dismayed to see Buckley and Meatloaf up so high though, and Abbey Road is noweher near the class of Revolver, White, Pepper and Hard Days Night in my personal opinion.

Also, don't agree with Dicko's idiotic claim that The Joshua Tree dies off after the opening three tracks.

That said, it was a bit of fun....and good to see music getting some attention in a world in which movies are despicably hailed as a more artisitic and appealing medium.

Everything except for Meatload was incredibly predictable.

Aye, The Beatles, Floyd, U2, Zeppelin, all incredibly tasteless.

I said it was predictable, but still...

Yeah, it's shocking.

At least there isn't any Missy Higgins or Pete Murray. I mean, most of the choices on that top 10 list are boring (or at least predictable) as hell, but it could have been worse.

I'm not terribly surprised by Floyd topping... I hate them, but just about everyone I know likes them, even youths and such.

Disgraceful.

Meat LoaF's Bat Out of Hell is a magnificent record.

It's still in the top 50 more than 25 years after its release.

3. Radiohead — Ok Computer
4. The Beatles — Abbey Road
5. The Beatles — Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
6. Nirvana — Nevermind
7. Led Zeppelin — Led Zeppelin 4
8. Red Hot Chili Peppers — Blood Sugar Sex Magik
9. Meat Loaf — Bat Out Of Hell
10. U2 — The Joshua Tree


I was really expecting The Joshua Tree to come in higher, probably in the top 5. Not that I helped, as I voted for Achtung Baby
Was happy to see Jeff Buckley right up there though!

yay jeff B

And INXS and Midnight oil and paul kelly and The Angels, Hunters and collectors and aussie crawl , crowded house


hang on this list sucks !!!!!!

AC/DC BACK IN BLACK . where is it ?????
