Great Albums Only I've Rated

Pull yr finger out Sputnik.
1 William Bell
Soul of a Bell


A soul classic.
2Sam Cooke
Live at the Harlem Square Club, 1963


The fact that ANY of his albums, let alone one this famous, only have 1 rating is pretty disgraceful.
3Jerry Lee Lewis
Live at the Star Club, Hamburg


Probably the best rock'n'roll record ever.
4Dionysos
La mecanique du coeur


French art rock. Eric Cantona does guest vocals on one track.
5David Ackles
American Gothic


Way overlooked - an early influence on the likes of Tom Waits and Nick Cave.
6 D'Angelo
Brown Sugar


The first neo-soul album, and none of you know about it? Ugh.
7Bernard Herrmann
Psycho


Shit film, brilliant score.
8Adam F
Kaos: The Anti-Acoustic Warfare


Features Pharoahe Monch, De La Soul, MOP, Redman, LL Cool J, GURU....
9Astor Piazzolla
Tango: Zero Hour


Avant-garde classical meets tango. Awesome.
10Everything But The Girl
Idlewild


One of the best acoustic rock records of the '80s.
11Cassetteboy
Festive Christmas


Mental. Will officially ruin your Last.fm account.
12 Patti Smith & Kevin Shields
The Coral Sea


Spoken-word poetry meets noisy dreaminess.
13Bilal
1st Born Second


I've never met anybody else who knows about this record.
14The Detroit Cobras
Tied and True


The best covers band in the world.
15Michael Nyman
The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Love


The best film score ever for me.
16Scrawl
Travel On, Rider


This band just don't get enough credit full stop.
17Cecil Taylor
One Too Many Salty Swift And Not Goodbye


Pretty brilliant free jazz.
