100 Great Albums sets out to explore over 40 years of music. From the Beatles and Bob Dylan, through to the Clash, Joy Division and U2, right up to Arctic Monkeys and Arcade Fire, no stone has been left unturned in searching out the very best. In addition to 100 highly recommended albums, attention is also drawn to 500 vital tracks that every discerning music lover should own. Andrew Southwood has been an avid collector of albums since the age of ten. It started with vinyl in 1973, moved on to cassette (in 1977), CD (1987) and these days he can be found wired-up to his MP3 player.

From the Publisher:

What is the greatest album of all-time? How can you compare Sgt Pepper with OK Computer, or Led Zeppelin's fourth LP with Moon Safari? Are the White Stripes and the Strokes as good as the Rolling Stones or the Clash? Can we believe everything that the professional critic recommends to us? So many questions and none that have definitive answers!

A few years ago Andrew Southwood started his quest to answer some of these questions. Armed with a stack of books and magazines amassed over four decades, together with a personal album collection in excess of 2,000, he decided to write about his undying romance that began with vinyl in 1973.

From the classics by Van Morrison and Bob Dylan, through to Progressive Rock, Punk, Grunge, Brit Pop and modern gems by Arcade Fire and Band Of Horses, 100 Great Albums covers over forty years of wonderful music.

This book draws attention to some truly special albums (highlighting the best track from each) and explains why you really must own them. An ambitious attempt is also made to spotlight 500 vital tracks that every respectable collection should have.

From the Author:

100 Great Albums represents the results of my labours over the last two years. Tired of reading what the professional critics had to say I decided it was time that I voiced my opinions. The hardest decision initially was not so much determining what albums merited a place in the Top 100, but which to leave out. To make this process easier I chose to exclude compilations and live albums. In anycase, Greatest Hits packages have become so numerous these days it's difficult knowing which compilation to elect for inclusion (for example, which best of the Beatles set is the best?). Allowing a place in the Top 100 for compilations would have potentially resulted in a mass cluttering by career-spanning records. I dismissed live albums on the grounds that generally there are few truly exceptional LPs in this format, even fewer that replicate the authentic experience. With Best Ofs and Live albums taken away from the equation the field was narrowed down considerably. The next problem centred around avoiding saturation by the same artists in the Top 100. The Beatles, Van Morrison, Pink Floyd and Bob Dylan could comfortably have notched up 5-6 entries each but, in doing so, this would have been to the detriment of other lesser-known artists. I decided to impose a limit of 3 albums maximum by any one band (with the unavoidable exception of the Beatles). I was also particularly keen to draw attention to bands that are not always being picked up on the great albums radar. Cosmic Rough Riders, Bright Eyes, Buffalo Springfield, Bedouin Soundclash, Big Star and Gang Of Four are typical examples of this.
