    Four classic albums in the first. The Last Broadcast not as famous as the rest but every bit as solid.

    Hazards such a good album in the second, with apologies to Drake. Have probably listened to it 100 times back to front and it never gets old.

    Ziggy Stardust in the third. Easily one of the greatest albums ever and the king of concept albums. Bowie > you.

    Yeah, would probably vote for Ziggy.. any other day, but I've been listening to Purple Haze and Hey Joe a lot for the last couple days + 'Are You Experienced?' being one one of my noms made me vote for it.

    Reckon there shoulda been a "one album per artist" limit in the first round at least; two is always gonna split the vote; Joy Div got as many votes as yer Clash. But is a minor quibble.

    Going for The Last Broadcast in Battle 3; arguably the best British album of the last decade and a thing of cavernous beauty. Doves pull off the difficult trick of sounding huge but starkly intimate too. Grace is a very fine album and really does give one a taste of the largely untapped well of Buckley fils's genius, but loses marks for an over reliance on covers.

    Battle 4 is Five Leaves Left. One of my personal top half dozen. Drake's essentially a one-man justification for English folk music and his liquidly gorgeous voice was never put to better effect than on his debut. Kirby's sympathetic string arrangements compliment Drake's finger-picking guitar style perfectly. It's also a very Cambridge album too; River Man & Way To Blue are absolutely steeped in the faintly bucolic splendour of the colleges.

    Pink Moon is a fine album too; but a more spartan affair, with only Drake's own piano on the title track to accompany his voice and guitar. Have a lot of time for Superunknown, but would probably have the less polished Badmotorfinger as my fav 'Garden long-player.

    IIRC I seconded Turn on The Bright Lights and it is a worthy inclusion, but am going for Ziggy Stardust in Battle 5. There's a starman and all that. I love Are You Experience? too, but the original album doesn't contain Hey Joe or Purple Haze; the trouble with re-releases is that there's no longer a definitive version of some albums. Which version should we be considering?

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
