the Brits and their fookin' lists. I'm always mad fer it.

Oh, NME, you crazy wankahs! Actually, it's those amnesiac readers/fans...putting Oasis above the Beatles...

Ludicrous. Silly. Blasphemous!

BUT, still so fun to see...And you know Noel and Liam will be howlin' about it. It also proves my undeniable Anglophilia and how much the British music journalism machine preaches to me and my loves. (with the exception of the fucking Strokes and overrated-like-no-other-band-in-recent-history, Radiohead. OK Computer always tops these lists and I'm so sick of it. [rolls eyes]

One question, Brits: Where's the Verve? C'mon!!!

Best album of all time revealed

Oasis debut 'Definitely Maybe' has been voted the best album of all time in an NME.COM poll.The Guinness Book of British Hit Singles & Albums teamed up with NME.COM to celebrate 50 years of the Official UK Album Chart.Not only have Oasis secured the top spot, but their 1995 album '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?' is at Number Five.The Manchester lads' heroes, The Beatles, were at second and third place in the poll with 'Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' and 'Revolver'. Radiohead also scored two albums in the top ten, with 'OK Computer' at Number Four and 'The Bends' at Number Ten.Editor of The Guinness Book of British Hit Singles & Albums, David Roberts, said the poll shows that great albums will always last. He said: "Usually these polls are full of records that people have only just bought because they are freshest in the mind. Only two albums in the Top 20 were released in the last five years, so the voters have clearly thought long and hard about their decision."
