Nothing really sticks out for me as a classic but the first Streets one, the Johnny Cash, the Ryan Adams and the first Arcade Fire one were all pretty good. I thought the Wilco one was shit.

I've got 31 of those albums, mind you my list would be very different. Can't believe Babyshambles got in there. Interpol should be in top 5

Should the award not be entitled:

"NME's we're trying to be clever and pick the top 50 we'll be perceived as being cool albums"

How are Libertines and The Streets in there twice each and Muse once?

Kaiser Chiefs - Employment
Metallica - Death Magnetic
Green Day - American Idiot
Killers - Hot Fuss
Red Hot Chilli Peppers - By the way
Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory

All quality albums released in the last decade, all more deserving of being in the top 50 than any Amy Wino, Strokes, The Streets, Babyshambles(!) and my particular favourite over rated load of shite Muse. How they are held up as sort of rock gods is way beyond me. (Sorry Pie).

As Pie says, this is just the NME trying to sound all clever and pandering to the radiohead loving tits who love anything that isn't good just because their mates have never heard of them. And is exactly the reason I stopped reading the NME about 8 or 9 years ago.

Oooooooooh Reidy, it's all about taste but in my eyes Muse are the band of a generation.

But then, I was brought up on Queen so I do love OTT Guitar based Rock anthems...

And where are The Editors?

Bit anal on my part but there is no "The" before "Editors".

Just looked up and Andrew WK's album came out in 2001. The way NME were going on about him when I stopped reading it, you would have thought he would have made the top 50.

Yes it should but that's nothing new, the smart arse journos at the NME have been doing this forever. In the 70s they were championing all kinds of shite and guess what if a lot of people start to like a band then all of a sudden they're shite.

I actually liked the first Streets album a lot, but the Libertines?

Jesus, Doherty is a talentless clod all he seems to do is bang on about Albion. Alright for Baggies fans but fuck all use for anyone else.

Well put arover. Thankfully for most of us though, we don't subscribe to NME. What a stinking pile of wank.

Yeah, I think so. It's obviously not the best album of the last 10 years, but it is easily one of the best 50. Certainly better than some of the shite on there.

Pie - I'm a massive fan of guitar based rock anthems myself. I've just always found Muse boring and more than a little bit annoying. But like you say, it's a matter of taste.

Two Suns is effing brilliant. Would say kings of leon should be on the list, neither of the killers albums are as good as the first which should be on the list. Stereophonics was a best of, that shouldn't be on the list

imo

The Stereophonics one was a tough one to call as they have a few good albums. I honestly couldn't be fucked researching when they were released so thought I'd jam the best of on there. (I haven't even heard it myself if I am to be very honest here). Just figured they where a worthy band for a list like this.

And Two Suns indeed. Glad there are others that like it. Smile

Day & Age though in my opinion was The Killers' best album to date. A very very interesting concept album.

I was about to sing the praises of Kings Of Leon, Stereophonics I kind of agree about the compilation but "Pull The Pin" should still be in with a shot.

Speaking of compilations and The Killers, I think the latter two albums are as good as Hot Fuss (which is a bit loud, loud, loud). Live From The Albert Hall though, that's how to do a compilation album.

In general I hate compilation albums, Stereophonics did it, I have all the albums and could easily create a playlist either mirroring their compilation or making my own. What's that, you've chucked a new song on there? Toss!

Finally, DD, your love of the Scissor Sisters is on the wrong thread, spAmnesty is just ^ or V or perhaps < or > Embarassed

Suprised Little Boots didnt make it onto the list of 5. To be honest I just downloaded those to see what the fuss was about, I would delete them but I've got some weird OCD thing where I can't delete music. Wouldn't say that Kasabian are that bad that I should be ashamed to have downloaded them.
