I watched a programme last night. Basically, experts from the music industry picked 125 albums and us Brits voted for the best. Top 5 was:

1. Radiohead - Ok Computer
2. U2 - The Joshua Tree
3. Nirvana - Nevermind
4. Michael Jackson - Thriller
5. Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon

Top 20 had a few Beatles albums (Revolver the most popular), Guns 'n'Roses Appetite For Destruction, Oasis - Definitely Maybe.

Anyone out there think us Brits got the top 5 totally wrong??

I watched that program too Dave, even though I was soooooo tired I had to stay awake just to see who was number one! I must say I was really surprised Radiohead got it! Even though the album is great personally I would have gone for either Nirvana/Nevermind or Beatles/Sgt Pepper for pole position.

I think they missed 1.a, which is of course Abbey Road.

I agree with 2-5...I dont know about Radiohead. I would have put a Beatles album on No. 1. The rest are pretty much accurate!!

Ok, so this is a very old thread, butit's always good to have a look at these things.

I would only have put dark side of the moon in the top 5. All the rest are top 20 (if that)

I do not have Dark Side of the Moon, but Nevermind by Nirvana is the world's most over-rated album.
