I agree with 1st reply. You're making a list of best 30 british albums to be released out of 8 bands? 6 out of the top 8 albums from british acts of all time are from one band? 94% of the albums are ancient? Do you expect anyone to take you seriously anymore?

if I ever see a greenday kid throwing up the horns while listening to greenday, I'm going to have to kick his ass. I'm not saying they shouldn't be allowed to throw up the horns, just not to greenday.

LOL oh, ok, you're from America, only land in the world where people can speak freely, where global warming is irrelevant, where you're the good guys and everyone else is the bad guys, and where the UK is good for going to see the queen, visiting quaint little villages and listening to very old music.

Just because we spearheaded a rock movement doesn't mean that we're trapped in the past. Open your mind a little.

Damn, Im transfering to this America place, sounds wonderful! Pity here over in the UK we arent allowed opinions

Seriously, shut up you patriachal bitch.

I do however agree with the Led Zeppelin choice of albums, they really are worthy of those places.

Hey. I'm gonna speak on behalf of about 49% of Americans (unfortunately), and say global warming ISN'T irrelevant. It is, in fact, a hot-button issue here. Unfortunately, all scientific press releases go through the white house, and the editor of science is a former oil company executive. Freedom of speech? Eh? For all the patriotism, things like the patriot act, wiretaps, censoring scientific research, etc, are a bit "pink."

On the topic. This really does seem like a slanted list. On the other hand, I couldn't justify putting Oasis over Zeppelin, in 99.9999% of cases, and I like Oasis. Also, the clash deserve a spot, if only because of the tremendous impact they had on the course of music. Also, I'd like to see the Who in the top 20. Just my 2 cents from this side of the Atlantic.

i was saying that it is what i consider to be the top 30, and to be honest, just cause every zeppelin album is on there, it doesn't mean it isn't deserved, they are all incredible, as you probably know. and as for te clash and oasis, well i just don't enjoy them a huge amount, i mean, the clash are good, but not worthy of top 30 british albums...

There is no best albums. There are more successful albums, more popular albums and albums which you think are best but no "Best" album.

And really you should have one for each artist because otherwise, as we see here, you get far too much of one band.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.
