Although a good chart, I took some points off for being a little too short. Can't wait to see your other 50 choices!

The 70s punk rock items, balanced by the masterpieces of Alan Parsons production - this is a choice

Bit too punkish in places for me and I have not heard a lot of the albums. But I really like your inclusion of The Stranglers. And glad not to see the usual old "classics" apart from Dark side of the Moon - which has indeed stood up to the test of time.

Have you heard Mark Lanergans Band - Blues Funeral? No inclusion of the The Doors?
