Three 5 star albums on my list. Give them a listen, you could be missing out on such treats

Beth Gibbons - Out Of Season 5 A cracker from ex-Portishead lass

Chemical Brothers - Dig Your Own Hole 3

Chic - C'est Chic 4 Best disco band ever

Christians - Colour 3

Clannad - Magical Ring 3

Cocteau Twins - Heaven Or Las Vegas 4

Cure - Disintegration 3

Curtis Mayfield - Roots 5 Could have been any one of any four albums for me, such an underrated artist

Damien Rice - O 5 Still one my all-time favourite albums. Lisa Hannigan's contribution is immense

Dave Gilmour - On A Island 3

Beth Gibbons - Out of Season
Chemical Brothers - Surrender
Chic - C'est Chic
Cocteau Twins - Heaven or Las Vegas
The Cure - Three Imaginary Boys
Curtis - Roots (could easily have been Curtis or Superfly or New World Order, one of the greatest and most influential songwriters of his, or any other, generation) 8-) 5 Stars
Damien Rice - O

Almost went for Roots myself, has my favourite Mayfield song on that album

At last someone else who rates the Beth Gibbons album, Portishead fans are missing out on a treat

You could quite easily have copy & paste my favourite albums post :tup:

Sifting though the Bowie catalogue to find his best album is a somewhat fascinating exercise.

Where do I start ?

I suppose Hunky Dory right through his 70's albums & then there are Heathen & his finale Blackstar to consider

Headphones imminent for a magical Sunday morning listening to the great man's repertoire of his eclectic works 8-)
