The NME is over 60 yrs old and has published it’s Top 500 Albums of all time.
The results were arrived at by a combination of votes by it’s staff writers and results of all it’s yearly album polls. The weekly magazine is out now or go here to see more http://www.nme.com/magazine/issue/the-500-greatest-albums-of-all-time
I won’t spoil the surprise, but just to say it’s bound to cause some arguments and controversy!
I was sad and counted how many of the Top 5oo I have in my collection – the answer being 192 (including 9 of the top 10). But then I am a music nut and did work in the industry for nearly 20 years!
My Top 3 would have been:
03. Unknown Pleasures – Joy Division (No.40 in NME Top 500)
02. Fear Of Music – Talking Heads (No.171)
01. All Mod Cons – The Jam (No.219)
But that’s just me…
