Copying an idea here. I deliberately did this quickly, without recourse to my shelves iTunes, or any other electronic means – No particular order, except they are in the order I thought of them.

  1. Odd isn’t it, when the ‘best albums in the world ever lists’ are always the bloody same. The other half (who says she’ll do her list when she’s bored in work) says “yeuch” to my list and that only the Tricky album would be on hers.
