Whilst it is interesting to have the public rather than mere music critics compile a list, the methodology is flawed.

Firstly, having the station make the choices would exclude many whole genres that may have been popular with certain sections of the British public at the time. Second – as I love to emphasise – the public is not likely to know as much about music as a small number of specialised critics or even musicians do.

Not a fan of the methodology. The critics choose 125 personal favourites and the viewers rank. Are the viewers that dumb they can't come up with their own albums?

The list has some oddities (Madonna, Dido), but it's actually not as bad as I remember it (I distinctly recall cursing at the television more than once).

Some bizarre choices. Hard to take seriously.

This is a great unbiased public view of what British people think. Why I always go with public votes and not one's made up by magazines. OK computer has to be top, but now I think Radiohead have Kid A and In Rainbows should be in there. The Beatles always have too many up the top for me, but can't argue with the public. As this is 2005 I think that Muse and some other albums would make the list in the future.

A good representation of what the genral public consider great which is why you get dire straits queen Coldplay and madonna high in list. Fair enough. This to me makes it quite interesting compared to a list compiled by some trendy mag.

Oh, 28 albums in common! Great, that should be ... oh my god ... what ... what is this? Seriously all 35 points here are for One Step Beyond because no one has that on a chart, but what on earth is the rest of this doing here? I mean, yeah, 27 other albums are goo, but basically the entire rest of the chart is just ... just garbage.

Some good albums in there, but madonna in the top 10, and a Robbie Williams album? As well as Dido, Human League and duran duran. No, no, no, no and no. Looks like they tried to keep multiple albums from one artist to a minimum, but that's just resulted in it being padded out with some shockers.
