Although this list is dated and has many flaws common to British music magazines, it still does include quite a lot of sometimes-overlooked albums of extreme merit, like ‘Spiderland’ and ‘Dummy’. There is even some semi-underground British music that is overlooked by more modern magazine lists in the United States. Nevertheless, it is ridiculous to recommend this list compared to something by Harrington or Scaruffi.

This chart doesn't work for me, far too 90's orientated. Stone Roses at number 2, good grief.

Dog Man Star at 16? Modern Life is Rubbish at 22? Sure, whatever. On the plus side, glad to see Screamadelica in the top 10 and also some albums like Liberty Belle and the Black Diamond Express, which I consider rather underrated, featured in the list.

Solid chart but some silly choices in top 10. Can tell it's a British chart with the love for the manic street preachers who don't seem popular anywhere else.

11 albums and 11 artists in common. This was 2000 so having OK computer so low is okay. The order overall is not for me but most of the albums in the list is great.

The first ten are great but further down the list, some albums just seem so random.

Good old Melody Maker. For me, the definitive music magazine from the mid-80s through mid-90s and then they lost the plot a bit. Some of which is evident from this chart. Lack of The Cure -- a band that routinely topped their end of year polls throughout the aforementioned period -- is criminal. But overall, not a bad chart.
