NME's 'Top 500 Albums' Poll
« on: October 24, 2013, 05:45:17 PM »

Has anyone seen this yet?
I'd be grateful if someone could post up the 500.

It truly is a bizarre list which appears to have been concocted by a group of under 40s who (a) have never heard of Rock 'n' Roll (a bad thing), and (b) actively despise the Led Zeppelin/Genesis/Floyd/prog end of the scale (not such a bad thing and something which I largely share with them!).....Led Zeppelin only have two entries!

The Beatles' positions are as follows:
2. 'Revolver'
9. 'White Album'
34. 'Abbey Road'
43. 'Rubber Soul'
87. 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'
133. 'Plastic Ono Band' - John
195. 'A Hard Day's Night'
227. 'Imagine' - John
264. 'Please Please Me'
333. 'Band On The Run' - Paul

For the record, the only 60s group who have my own favourite LP of theirs in the list is The Beatles with 'Please Please Me'.
All my other favourites ('Velvet Underground', 'Axis', 'Scott 3', 'Another Side of Bob Dylan', 'Out Of Our Heads') are missing!

I dont see the point in even reading these things personally, its only somebody's opinion - which is usually different than mine

I really couldnt give a fcuk if somebody thinks Bananarama's LP is better than Revolver :D

Fair enough if that's your take on it, but The Beatles - with 2 entries in the Top 10 - don't come out badly at all.

Bananarama didnt make it big over here in the US until the 80's. 'Cruel Summer' was their big hit and I actually love that song. Lots of good memories to it.

The Queen Is Dead is a good record, but number one?  Oh well, any list is subjective.  NME do like British bands.

All my other favourites ('Velvet Underground', 'Axis', 'Scott 3', 'Another Side of Bob Dylan', 'Out Of Our Heads') are missing!

It is indeed very curious that they left out that album, yet included all the three others (VU&Nico, Wl/Wh, Loaded). In my opinion, both the self-titled 3rd and Loaded are a bit overrated (though still great), but then I'm more of a Cale-era fan. Also really glad that they included Lou Reed's Berlin - one of my all-time favourites and easily up there with anything the man's ever done. I just recently watched the 2008 Berlin concert film and, even though I wasn't expecting much, was moved to tears several times. Such a powerful story. And Lou's still got it.

I don't really have the time/interest to read the whole list, but I did some quick searches on my favourites and they were mostly all there. The  bias towards prog is way too obvious, of course, but other than that, it looks like an all right list.

Look again - it's the ABSENCE of prog/70s stuff that is the main feature.
'Led Zep', 'Led Zep 2', 'Houses of the Holy', 'Physical Graffitti', Yes, Queen, Genesis, King Crimson, 'Meddle', 'The Wall', 'Wish You Were Here', Jethro Tull.....all normally shoe-ins for a list like this.....all missing.
It's obviously a hatchet job by the 12 year olds who currently work on the NME but I can't say I miss them!

I've had a hard week and I'm currently amusing myself by concocting playlist of my own that ISN'T on the NME list.

First up, The Beach Boys 'Smile'.
Don't want the Brian Wilson one (at 481), I want the '66/'67 one.
'Smile' has to be there. Any other suggestions?

Here's a strange omission: 'Music from Big Pink' by The Band.
Their 2nd LP is at No. 83, but usually you can't get a cigarette paper in between them.
If you see one of them in a 'best of' list, you can bet your house that its partner will soon follow.

What's happened is the NME staff have sat round a table and thought, 'Hmmm, 'two' LPs by The Band.....why don't we just put in the one, and then we'll be able to shoe-horn in another pasty white English indie group from 1993 that no one outside their immediate family, and us, has ever heard of'!

So for me that's......
The Beach Boys - 'Smile'
The Band - 'Music from Big Pink'

oldbrownshoe, I'm doing my best here to get to like you buddy, but you ain't making this any easy...  ha2ha (just kidding)

First up, The Beach Boys 'Smile'.

'Smile' has to be there. Any other suggestions?

Unfortunately, there is no official 66/67 'Smile' and whether the 2011 Box-Set is a fair inclusion is debatable. It is, after all, an archival release.

Yes, fair enough about 'Smile', but the core release was the 19-tracks on the first CD.
That's the 'Smile' I mean, not the 4 CDs afterwards.
There's no reason why that can't be included and, although there is zip chance of me actually hearing it, 'Hatful of Hollow' by The Smiths was, I believe, a bunch of BBC sessions, and that's in the list.
