What a year.

So much great music being made and the whole rave/dance stuff was fantastic.

I voted for the Pixies but it was tough choice!

In the spirit of youthful rebellion I have a late entry from 1988.
N.W.A.'s Stright Outta Compton. A cracking record and similarly pivotal to Unknown Pleasures.

Great record, a few hints of what was to come in there.
I have the original record, with Obi but no insert.

Spacemen 3's Playing with Fire for me as well.

I loved The Stone Roses album at the time, and even learned how to play all of it on guitar, but it has aged very badly.

The Someloves - Something or Other

I'm putting a shout-out for this one as it frequently makes Top 10 jangly rock album lists and doesn't really put a foot wrong. If I were to fault it, it's that it's almost too perfect.
