Last night, when watching the 100 Greatest Albums on Channel4, I kept trying to guess what the #1 album would be. As the title of this post suggests, I was a bit shocked when it was announced.
Consider the number of fantastic artists and bands there have been, and then considering the number of albums released by each.
But, the album that came in at #1 was voted for by the viewers of Channel4, so it doesn’t really represent the #1 album of all time. That kind of poll would be too hard to organise… I think!
At first I had guessed Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band or maybe Nevermind.
Anyway, the album that was voted in at #1 was O.K Computer by Radiohead. Surprised? I mean, yeah… it’s a fantasitc album, but I really don’t compare it to their previous album – The Bends. That’s my favourite album of all time so far and it’s going to take a lot to beat it imo.
Apparently Radiohead are bigger in the UK & Ireland than I thought :)
