And most of those Marley tracks are from the 70s. " /> " />
Ok I'll try again.
1970 - Supertramp - Breakfast in America
1980 - Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast
1990 - Jamiroquai - Travelling Without Moving
2000 - Caravan Palace - Caravan Palace
LOUNGE: Panasonic TX-P50GT50 (is poorly) / Panasonic DMP-BDT120 / Yamaha RX-A2020 / Dali Zensor 3 (front) / Dali Zensor Vokal (centre) / Mordaunt Short MS20i Pearl Edition (rear) / Q Acoustics1000Si (sub) / Roksan Radius 5.2 (is poorly) / Ortofon Super OM20 Cartridge / Sky HD / WD My Book Live 2TB / Seagate Expansion 2TB / Nintendo Wii / Tacima CS-929
BEDROOM: Samsung LE32C450 / Sony BDP-S360 / Echostar HDS-600RS / Netgear WNCE2001
Get him told, BBB.
I agree with the non-comps rule. They aren't really albums are they?
70s: Katy Lied - Steely Dan
80s: The Queen Is Dead (narrowly pips Meat and Strangeways) - The Smiths
90s: Behaviour - Pet Shop Boys
00s: At Dawn - My Morning Jacket.
Then again I can think of stacks of alternatives for each of the above selections.
If greatest hits were allowed, we'd be on the first rung to anarchy.
I've changed my 90s choice to OTC, I think you know it's the right thing to do Charlie.
70s Genesis "Selling England by the pound"
80s Dire Straits "Making Movies"
90s Santana "Supernatural"
00s Joe Bonamassa "Sloe Gin"
10s JB / Beth Hart "Don't Explain"
This could all change by tomorrow.
"Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again." André Gide
Anarchy, OTC and PSB - now that's what I call music!

There were too many great albums in the 90s, Spiritualized - Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space is awesome too.
Not PSB though. " />
crosby stills and nash - first album - just timeless.
Deaf School first album- a Liverpool band - mid 70s art house pop/rock - still fresh.
Simple Minds - the Glittering Prize - a sort of best of - superb
More recently - Raising Sand - alison krauss robert plant
O Damien Rice
that's just for starters - tonky

This is a tough one!
70s- Neil Young – Everybody knows this is nowhere Neil’s best I think just ahead of ‘after the goldrush’ as others of mentioned though ‘Déjà vu’ is a great album.
80s- REM – Murmur Anyone who has dismissed modern REM albums needs to give their first a listen, lovely melodic bass and absolutely beautiful jangly guitar
90s – Talk Talk – Laughing Stock if you haven’t heard it please give it a go, its stunning! also the stories surround the recording sessions are pretty good too.
00s – Mystery Jets – Making Dens – Mixing prog and pop has never sounded so good, what could have been if subsequent albums had have followed in the same style.

Sorry, just can't name only one for each decade, so here goes;
70's Queen, Night at the Opera, Joni Mitchell, Ladies of the Canyon, James Taylor, Sweet baby James
80's Luther Van Dross, Forever, for always, for love. Sting, Nothing like the sun. Peter Gabriel, So.
90's Everything but the girl, Idlewild. Beth Nielsen Chapman, Sand and water. Alison Krauss, So long, so wrong.

10's Laura Veirs, July Flame, Angus&Julia Stone, Down the way, Lauren Mann and the fairly odd folk, Over land and sea.
Accuphase E350 amp, Electrocompaniet EMC1UP CDP, Siltech 25th Classic anniversary 330I XLR Harbeth Super HL5 on Sound Anchor Quod ELS63 stands, Chord Odessey2 speaker cable. Grado SR60 headphones.
Think the overall madness of 'The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway' would just edge ahead as my favourite Genesis album though.
mmmm love the prog
Impossible to name just one album per decade:
In no particular order: (1970s) Elvis Costello - My Aim Is True; Minnie Riperton - Perfect Angel; David Bowie - Hunky Dory.

(1990s) Nirvana - Unplugged in New York; Crowded House - Woodface
