Although I'd offload a few to the local charity shop, I'd much rather have that Top 100 from 1974 to the NME Top 500 from last week. For starters I'd have Chuck Berry, The Miracles and The Impressions instead of Madonna and Whitney Houston.

It's also rather satisfying to see a few of the more marginalised 60s albums in there - Joni Mitchell's debut, The Doors' 'Strange Days', Traffic's 'Mr. Fantasy' and The Byrds' '5th Dimension'.

Also Twelve Dreams Of Dr. Sardonicus by Spirit and Crown Of Creation by Jefferson Airplane, which are ignored in present lists. But it's strange not to see Surrealistic Pillow by the latter band.

It´s a mystery to me how Depeche Mode´s Violator is ranked so low. It´s a masterpiece:

Violator Depeche Mode Remastered (Full Album)

I never heard of them.  That's why they're on the first list.     ;D

I can forgive you for not knowing who The Cardigans are, I don´t think they were that big in the US, but do you really not know Depeche Mode?!  :)

I honestly never heard of them, Brynjar.  But, remember, I "tuned out" a great deal of music after The Beatles broke up.  Also, the only radio station I've listened to since 1972 is WCBS-FM which has an "oldies" format.

I'm happy this way.   :)
