Australias favourite album

ABC TV here in australia have been holding an online poll here for the past couple of months to decide Australias' Favourite Album. The results were released last night...what do you think?

1. Pink Floyd — Dark Side Of The Moon
2. Jeff Buckley — Grace
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!

Although I'm a massive achtung baby fan even I have to admit it could not rival the brilliance of Anthony Calleas classic album. How dare you scorn!

Meh I don't like Pink Floyd. Bit of a lame list.

There are many great Australian artists out there, how come none of them get represented.

It's a shit-tacular list; typical of JJJ and the ABC. There's some gross tunnel vision in the music they're all about - like anyone, I spose, but this (except for Meatloaf) is representative of their target audience.

The highest position an Aussie artist made it to was number 23 - Midnight Oil 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1!!
INXS only made it in at 74 with Kick - I can't believe how low that came!
We aren't a very patriotic lot apparently!

There seemed to be a few recently released albums that finished ahead over the top of some "Classic" or "Great" albums off the past (I think Achtung Baby Falls under that category)

I think the top 10 is great however, I've not listened to a Led Zeppelin album (Yet!?, plan on discovering them this week), And I'm not really that big on the Chilli Peppers.

And Nirvana is muchly overrated, it makes you wonder if they'd have been there if they were still around these days, maybe (at least I doubt in the Top 10)
