    I'm not really an albums person; I'm always quite disappointed by them. The best I can ever hope for is 5 or 6 brilliant songs so hear are some albums (possibly more than 5) which I think contain at least 5 or 6 great songs:

    -The Golden Mile; My Life Story
    -Park Life: Blur
    -Viva Hate; Morrissey
    -Back in Denim; Denim
    -Reading and Writing; The Sundays
    -The Visitors; Abba
    -Hope and fear; Keane
    -Self titled; The Stone Roses
    -First Belly Album; Belly
    -TQID/Strangeways: The Smiffs
    -err, that's about it. It's all a bit too indie for my liking!

    When people post a thread saying 'Top 5' why do people feel the need to put more than 5?

    The Beatles - Revolver
    Super Furry Animals - Radiator
    My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
    The Clash - London Calling

    I tried to narrow it down to five, but it's near impossible. Here's my top ten (if it's allowed):

    1) The Smiths - Meat Is Murder
    2) Morrissey - Viva Hate
    3) The Decemberists - Her Majesty, The Decemberists
    4) Pulp - This Is Hardcore
    5) Manic Street Preachers - The Holy Bible
    6) Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures
    7) Radiohead - Kid A
    8) Public Enemy - It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back
    9) Jeff Buckley - Grace
    10) Blur - Modern Life Is Rubbish

    I could never get rid of any of these, that's why I've put my top 10.
