    I'll go with that.
    Certainly contains the best song ever made: Paranoid Android.

    Wow great, now I can sleep at night because Q don't like certain bands.

    Some good albums in there....but I'm surprised left fields leftism doesn't get a mention.

    Fat of the Land would have to be in mine.

    Jut thinking about the Prodigy actually - probably would have gone for Jilted though.

    Green Bay are good, but not as good as Green Day...

    Impressive for a tribute band to make the top 25.

    Arctic Monkeys ... 5th best album of the past 25 years ... really?

    The Prodigy definitely deserve a place on that list though.

    Just be thankful take that aren't in the list.

    Certain type of magazine though I suppose, heat or ok would hardly throw that lot up.

    I'd have thought some madonna, Dire Straits or AC/DC would be in a lot of peoples.

    Same here

    18. Kid A - Radiohead

    A JOKE RIGHT???

    I'm pretty sure placing The Holy Bible below American Idiot is some cruel sort of joke from the Q staff.

    I have 13 of the top 15... it makes me feel cool! My face is nevermind though and automatic for the people second...

    16. In The Aeroplane Over The Sea - Neutral Milk Hotel
    This is worshipped on a certain music board.

    I don't particularly like Green Day but they're inadvertently saying 'American Idiot' is Green Days best album. Whereas this was the curdling point for them in my opinion. They got a bit too U2.

    Never got the whole 'Ok Computer' fascination either. It includes some of my favourite tracks, but as an album as a whole I think some of their others surpass it.

    Overall standard list.

    29. Automatic For The People - R.E.M.

    Should have been well higher than 29

    2. Nevermind - Nirvana

    This should have been number 1 for me!

    My favourites are in the list, probably not listed in the order I would have them but music is very personal and it all depends on what the album meant to you. They are the soundtrack to my life and remind me of all the important times over the years, more so when I was teenager/early twenties.

    Indie rubbish as usual then.

    None of them would be in my top 10 albums.

    Guess everyone has different tastes though.
