How can you put that many brit-rock albums into one chart?? This is obscure.

From JamesCollier 09/10/2012 01:16
I understand this chart is a thing of its time but having 'Be Here Now' at #13 is unbelievable. Even just the inclusion of 'Pablo Honey' is bizarre (despite being a crazy Radiohead fan). This poll must've had a lot of naive voters. Still, it's nice to see a 'best of' chart acknowledge Manic Street Preachers - one of the finest, but forgotton bands of the 90s.

From andy_hunter 08/29/2012 10:56
I quite like Q, they pick relatively indie stuff but aren't afraid to pick some mainstream stuff if its actually good. They're sort of a halfway point between Rolling Stone and Pitchfork. This would be an excellent chart but they messed up the order so badly! For example, 'Here Be Now' ahead of 'Defiantly Maybe' what the hell is that about?!
