  1. I love this list request but it was so difficult to narrow down 😅 I feel like as soon as I post this I'll remember another brilliant album, but this is my list for now!
  2. Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not - Arctic Monkeys
    695b4835 5902 40d6 9f9e ef607251874c
    I've already written about how much I love this album but it is so so good
  3. Definitely Maybe - Oasis
    9376ee96 5312 400f 9c3f 074a48df7205
    I wouldn't be a true Northerner without putting an Oasis album on this list. This is my most treasured and most played vinyl.
  4. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill - Lauryn Hill
    Fc6cfee8 450c 4d10 afb4 b238f5f7c3e7
    There is not a bad song on this album. Not one.
  5. Bookends - Simon & Garfunkel
    2ea480cb 8d22 4421 9a0a 0ffbdc61472c
    I absolutely love Simon & Garfunkel and this album features one of my favourite songs ever, America.
  6. Is This It - The Strokes
    82c425ff 9dbe 4c3b a51e 996f5271b113
    No matter how much I listen to this it will never get old.
  7. I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose - Bombay Bicycle Club
    0fbc41b1 c250 4c7f 8f2b f82cae0d1198
    First band I saw live. Their new stuff is equally brilliant but this debut album has a special place in my heart. It features another of my favourite songs, Lamplight.
  8. Illmatic - Nas
    A78ec8a5 210a 4c52 b9b5 d93430d43a01
    I'm a huge fan of Nas' lyrics and this album has some of his best. (I'm realising this list has a lot of debut albums??)
  9. Salad Days - Mac DeMarco
    F4d96f9b f7dd 47dc b4c4 6196ecce30a0
    Not the most technically brilliant or complex album but it's a personal favourite. Reminds me of a guy who was 💩 but had great taste in music.
  10. Is Your Love Big Enough? - Lianne La Havas
    F0fb7aa0 df2b 4b6b b3b7 02fd6113ef8e
    I feel like I talk about this artist all the time! I was obsessed with this album from the first time I heard it and I remember playing it over and over again on holiday in Kefalonia.
  11. Back To Black - Amy Winehouse
    2a280c4b 3077 4bd1 a3d5 3272b92dced0
    A beautiful voice and incredible song writing skills. 💔
  12. Off The Wall - Michael Jackson
    A1135f4d 4a59 47b4 9bdb 93aa1e4e28ca
    Probably one of the best pop albums ever. Quincy Jones' production is genius. I love Thriller too but I think this one just beats it (pun intended)
  13. Days Are Gone - Haim
    57e1b2e6 a54a 451e 8b26 5b2db880e2a3
    I love love love this band. Their gig was one of my favourites and this album always cheers me up.
