Re: Hot Press - critics EOY top 5 albums 1977-2006

Can You please share some more playlist prayer for someone you love to come back

Re: Hot Press - critics EOY top 5 albums 1977-2006

Every list has suspect choices. Anyway i don't really see what's suspect about these seeing that most of them are no different from every other music mag's top 5. OK, being an Irish mag there is a domestic bias & 'Rattle & Hum' 2nd best of '88 is pushing it. But, again, at the end of the day every other music mag has a domestic bias.

Thanks Charlie!

Check: These are old EOY lists that were published again in the anniversary issue, right?

Or did they create these lists in 2007, based on current opinion?

Re: Hot Press - critics EOY top 5 albums 1977-2006

Elvis Costello: 12 NOMINATIONS!!!

Re: Hot Press - critics EOY top 5 albums 1977-2006

Yes Henrik these are their original EOY Top 5's as re-published in the recent 30th anniversary edition.

Re: Hot Press - critics EOY top 5 albums 1977-2006

Elvis Costello- 12 nominations. Absolutely tragic !!

wash your mouth with soap.

Re: Hot Press - critics EOY top 5 albums 1977-2006

In 1986, The Queen Is Dead is better than the other ones(excluding Graceland) put together...

Re: Hot Press - critics EOY top 5 albums 1977-2006

Yeah, but even the NME only rated TQID 9th best of '86 (& Melody Maker 6th). Also justice is done in the end as Hot Press well included it in their all-time list's : 30th in '89 & 18th last year.

Re: Hot Press - critics EOY top 5 albums 1977-2006
