Hi Em!

Great idea - absolute torture for professional music reviewers such as myself.

The Top Ten from a collection of nigh-on 600 takes some weeding out, and there's no way I could rank them (they're in alphabetical order) but here are my definitives:

Deep Purple: Machine Head (Speed King)
Bob Dylan: Bringing It All Back Home (Subterranean Homesick Blues)
Fun Lovin' Criminals: 100% Colombian (10th Street)
Sheryl Crow: Tuesday Night Music Club (No-One Said This Would Be Easy)
Guns N' Roses: Appetite For Destruction (Paradise City)
Led Zeppelin: III (Since I've Been Loving You)
Meatloaf: Bat Out Of Hell II (Out Of The Frying Pan)
Metallica: Metallica (Nothing Else Matters)
Propellerheads: Decksndrumsnrocknroll (OHMSS)
Paul Simon: Graceland (Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes)

Controversial, huh? Don't ask me to do this again, or you'll probably get 10 different answers smiley - smiley

Oh, and for the information of Euan (already on the page), 'Fanfare For The Common Man' was from ELP's 'Works'

Master B - I don't mind if anyone wants to change their entry, even if it's scrapping the whole ten, v-cool that you're a music reviewer and you've reminded me that I have to find a copy of NME from months ago for my art project and that I have to listen to that Sheryl Crow album again.
