Pretty decent chart voted by general public with some daggy choices you'd expect in a chart of it's nature. O.K with the hometown bias however disappointed the likes of Go-Betweens, Triffids, Nick Cave/Bad Seeds and the Church were left out in the cold.

Given the fact that my childhood is testimony to the fact that people in suburban Australia are no more knowledgeable about music than a cloistered monk or nun would be, this list is not that bad. There are indeed a few albums that the isolated, risk-averse suburbanites who dominate Australian culture would never have heard, but too much valueless music – like all popular lists – makes this a very questionable list like any “popular” one.

Ha! Only on an ABC list would you find 21 albums by Australian bands. Not that that's a bad thing or anything...but most of the Ozzie choices are rather predictable.

Some albums are so out of place like Hot August Night. I do like that they put Grace at number two. Don't know if that's really fair towards the Beatles but the recognition is great.

Being an Aussie, I love this list. A lot more even spread of countries than most lists. Need to be an Aussie to understand some of the choices, some "daggy" selections in there, but still a good reflection of Australian tastes.

My first reaction was "wow, there's a lot of Australian albums". I'm stupid. Anyway, ABC viewers are an interesting bunch. The list seemed pretty standard at the beginning but got very interesting very quickly. Meat Loaf in the top 10? Midnight Oil and Silverchair in the top 20? Very interesting.
