Black And WhiteUnited Kingdom The Stranglers
This band is simply stunning and this is their best album. Big bass, in your face, lots of punch, incredible time signatures and fantastic production - awsome.

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?
