From the NME. What a pile of crap. Seriously, I know NME bashing is easy point scoring nowadays but an album thats been out 2 DAYS above Revolver?! I cant imagine people listening to the Artic Monkeys in 40 years time somehow...

1. The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses
2. The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead
3. Oasis - Definitely Maybe
4. Sex Pistols - Never Mind The Bollocks
5. Arctic Monkeys - Whatever You Say I Am I Am Over Rated
6. Blur - Modern Life Is Rubbish
7. Pulp - Different Class
8. The Clash - London Calling
9. The Beatles - Revolver
10. The Libertines - Up The Bracket


PS for Novacane - Radiator came 22nd

That's a very NME list isn't it.

Yes... two days old album a bit ridiculous.

well yeah putting the arctic monkeys in there is just retarded and obviously some kind of dumb attention grabbing trick

i also can't agree with these two:

a) parklife is considerably better than modern life is rubbish, which has at best 4-5 good tracks on it

b) his n hers is better than different class

Agreed.

I actually have most of them albums on my MP3 player. The only ones I don't have are Revolver, The Clash and The Sex Pistols.

They've left out Welcome To Loserville by Son of Dork.

I had to google that to get it but now I have...

Obviously. Of course. 6 of the best 10 British albums EVER have come out in the last 15 years!! Talk about short memories. The Beatles album almost looks like a token gesture.

I prefer Different Class to His n Hers. Just. I love its filthy innocence.

NME's "10 albums we think our readers like and will probably own"

mmm that's a good way of putting it. it's very smug.

No floyd in there?! I don't agree at all, but then I have diametrically oposing tastes to the NME at the best of times!

Mmmm... I seem to remember you all defending it when I accused the NME of having turned into a Q-style remember-the-hits nostalgia paper for the britpop generation a couple of years ago.

I definitely have never defended the NME, but then I never read it as th music covered by it generally doesn't appeal.....

Funko

I can't imagine Nills ever defending the NME.

if that's true, i'd like to re-read that thread

i can't see quite how it could be true though, given that the vast majority of the nme's pages each week are still taken up with horrible guff about new bands

It was Debaser, not Nills (http://www.counterglow.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=8806)

hmm, what a crap re-read, i didn't even post in it

and when scabrous says 'you all defending it' he really meant 'debaser defending it'

still amusing to see debaser transformed into darkstar

Debaser is quite right too.

But, if NME are going to publish a top 10 British albums ever list, you would expect more representation of the more distant past.

I'm suprised the likes of Radiohead didn't make an appearance. They had 3 albums in the top 10 in Q Magazine's Top100 of all time.

Yes, that was an even more fucked up list. Kid A, one of the top ten albums ever?

Take a look at Rocklist (http://www.rocklist.net/), which lists all the of-all-time lists the NME has ever made. The distribution of special list issues is pretty telling I think...

1970s: 3
1980s: 3
1990s: 7
2000s so far: 9

BTW, I declare this the worst NME list of all time:

According to my calculations, by march 2056 the NME will consist entirely of list features.
