Oooh good one.

Sorry Dave Pearce Dance Anthems (CD3) you're off my list to make way for the Foo Fighters.

I like all the Foo's albums as they've never made a dud one yet, but this is the one I keep coming back to and enjoying the most.

If I had to pick one album it would be their Greatest Hits album for obvious reasons. In my ripped music collection I listen to a compilation of all my favourite Foo Fighters tracks in one album. There's songs off all the albums in it.

Off the top of my head and without several hours careful consideration, I think I'll go with..

Richard Thompson - Rumor & Sigh

Nils Lofgren - Acoustic Live

The Decemberists - The Crane Wife

Maria McKee - Life Is Sweet

Porcupine Tree - Stupid Dream

The Groundhogs - Split

The Tubes - Remote Control

Erin McKeown - Grand

Jackie Leven - The Mystery of Love Is Greater Than The Mystery of Death

Spirit - Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus

.. there's tons more just bubbling under.

Probably be different tomorrow, I've just bought Clapton's remastered 461 Ocean Boulevard, and I'd forgotten how good that album is.

Here's 10 of them, no particular order;

Boards of Canada - Music Has The Right To Children

Radiohead - Kid A

DJ Shadow - Endtroducing

The Stone Roses

Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein

Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun

Clark - Totems Flare

Underworld - Second Toughest in the Infants

The Beta Band - 3 EPs

Four Tet - Rounds

A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory

Probably represents what i've listened to most over the past 25 years. I could have put at least 2 more Radiohead albums in there, plus some Pink Floyd and a bunch of US rock albums i might have included (pavement, nirvana, walkmen, national, kings of leon, spoon, strokes, death cab, low, explosions in the sky...)

Although things like this are completely pointless and trivial, since putting my selection forward I've been mulling the topic over and over in my mind and can't believe some of my other favourites that didn't spring immediately to mind. What, no Al Green Greatest Hits, Joe Cocker and Sheffield Steel, Focus and Hamburger Concerto and on and on and on!

Just shows how hard it is to narrow it down to just 10.
