thing is, a list like this didn't seem so inconceivable back then as it did now. a list like this would be laughed out the house in 2011 - not even considered.

no, I'm pretty sure any list that ranked The Stone Roses the second-best album of all time and What's The Story? (Morning Glory) as the fifth-best album of all time was also stupid in 1997

Pet Sounds in at 26 - was similarly low on the Q Readers' Poll if memory serves me correctly. Funny how the album would snowball with revisionist cachet in the following years.

Euripides Trousers (Tom D.), Wednesday, 14 September 2011 14:15 (nine years ago) link

Pet Sounds was regularly number 1 when the NME did this sort of thing in the mid 80s thru early 90s, i seriously doubt that its poll cachet has ever been as high since.

Chapman Pincher Overdrive (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 14 September 2011 14:17 (nine years ago) link

trippy coincidence but those are exactly my favourite 50 albums, in order.

Roberto Spiralli, Wednesday, 14 September 2011 14:18 (nine years ago) link

Yeah, it's not like "Pet Sounds" has only been re-discovered in the last few years. Obviously the peak popularity for it with the general public would have been in 1966!

Euripides Trousers (Tom D.), Wednesday, 14 September 2011 14:18 (nine years ago) link

dunno about that Tom, in 1966 i think the general public was only just beginning to get the hang of this "bullshit reverence for the album as the most perfect form of musical expression ever" thing

Chapman Pincher Overdrive (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 14 September 2011 14:20 (nine years ago) link

Yes, they had a more Mike Love approach in those days

Vaguely surprised by the lack of the Jam / the Specials / Small Faces / the Kinks, I thought they would be shoe-ins for this sort of thing after having been so lauded during the britpop era.

too many journalists with gnvqs from some polytechnic who think they can decide what is good music, imho

He's too black for these racist polls

i agree about the lack of Clapton but don't take it out on Miles Davies, he was a huge influence on guys like Nik Kershaw and Level 42.

Yes, they improved on him by adding more melody

And getting rid of the annoying trumpet sounds

Chapman Pincher Overdrive (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 14 September 2011 17:31 (nine years ago) link

Replacing them with superior synth trumpet sounds

another common criticism of these polls is that the dance and electronic genres aren't recognised, but bands like radiohead and the killers have been inccorporating dance influences into soundscapse that work at home as well as in the club

Unfortunately Miles Davis never had the chance to work with a bass player as gifted as Mark King, who knows what he - they - might have achieved
