Alternative Top 100 Albums Ever

Top 100 (Even though there are 102 albums) Albums That Don’t Appear In All The Other Top 100 Albums Of All Time.

Big Thanks to Mike Gardner for supplying this list.

›› The Wire who also compiled a list with similar criteria.

This list appeared in the Guardian Friday Review on 29th January 1999. Tom Cox compiled it.

Some notes – A panel of 50 hand picked critics and music makers compiled the list. The brief was to select their top 20 all time favourite albums that don’t appear in most of the other all time top 100 albums. See the ultimate album lists #1 & 2 for a rough idea of the exclusions. They were also excluded from selecting albums that were less than 2 years old (to prevent the farce of having an album 3 months old at number one, as in the Q reader’s poll in 1998). A personal note: No Bob Marley albums – although only Legend was excluded!
