Yea, I've seen it before. DDN is #1. I think I can agree with that... I mean, there might be thing si like better, depeneding on the day, but it's easily the indeal apex of 80s alternative.

I wouldn't have put two pixies albums on the top 10 though. I think a top ten should really show they variety of the decade. The rest of the list is good. Anyway, I was disappointed that Bad Moon Rising didn't make it.

it's too soon... well, maybe was, too soon to have a truly awesome 90's list.

I'm glad television personalities was on the list. I got into them from that list. It's a really out of place album for 1981

Not a bad list. I haven't heard a lot of the records from about 50 - 100, but I'd add NIN's pretty hate machine (that was 89 I think).

Yarr. Nice to see the Fall and Prince in the top 20. Although in a just world the top three would contain The Fall, half man half biscuit and purple rain, but we can't always get what we want, can we?

Good to see Duran Duran there, but the only reason for picking 'Rio' above 'Duran Duran' or 'Seven and the Ragged Tiger' is 'Save a Prayer' (a very good reason). The other two are better LP's, and 'Seven and the Raagged Tiger' in particular has a grandiose pop majesty that cannot be denied ('Tiger Tiger', New Moon on Monday', 'Union of the Snake').

Top would be 'A Secret Wish' by Propaganda. THen The Fall and SOnic Youth.

NO place for either of the GAye Bykers on Acid's classics, 'Drill Your Own Hole' and 'Stewed to the Gills'? Bah, humbag and balderdash. And not enough Public Enemy on the list.

IN many cases the LP's picked are by the right bands, but I think are the wrong LP's. So you're right.
