    Epic stuff there Claire, I’d second most of those choices – on my list I would include Kate Bush Never For Ever, PJ Harvey Dry, Sinaed O Connor I do not want what I have not got, Michael Jackson Thriller, Garbage Garbage, The Doors LA Woman, The Cure Disintegration, Bjork Debut, Heather Nova Oyster & Tori Amos Little Earthquakes.
    Interesting to see a bit of Grebo work its way into your list. Still got some PWEI albums but not quite so enamoured these days.

      Thanks :) Some good choices from you there. Actually, ‘Little Earthquakes’ was on my longlist, as was ‘Dry’ – and they both very nearly made the final fifty… I must confess that I still have a soft spot for PWEI!
