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!

Closer - Joy Division
You could have it so much better - Franz Ferdinand
The Ghost of Tom Joad - Bruce Springsteen

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

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