And why should I buy it?

There are loads of 'classic' albums I bet I have missed out on, since I have passed through my short phase of being 'down with the kids' between 1995 and 2005.

I have a really wide collection of music but for example, I have realised I STILL don't own Pablo Honey.

What did I forget to buy/ slipped under my radar?

TIA smile

That was the first album I got!
I was 13 at the time and all my mates were into punk.

I think I had to dust down the copy of the self from Penny Lane Records!!

I don't have an all time favourite, but I can't believe no-one has mentioned anything by The Divine Comedy or "Rattlesnakes" by Lloyd Cole. Classics!

And as a 20 Something of the 1990s Definitely Maybe is a good 'un too.

Despite my wanly comment about The Stone Roses above, the other album that has come out a lot in the last 20+ years is Goodbye Jumbo by World Party.

I'm a living, walking cliche but if I could only ever listen to one album again, it would be Pet Sounds by the Beach Boys.

RollerCola Tue 23-Oct-12 19:15:06

My faves are:

What's the Story, Oasis

The Bends, Radiohead (have always loved this but don't like any of their others apart from one song, Creep)

The Vaccines - Whatever Happened to the Vaccines (I think it's called)

Fun. can't remember what it's called but they've only done one

Completly different genres but both fab!!

Also love Stage and Scary Monsters and Super Freaks....

In a child of the 80's and an album I seem to revisit again and again is Soulmining by The the. Yes it's a bit teenage angsty but its so brim full of emotion and listening to it just takes me back to those heady when your whole life lies ahead of you and you see meaning in everything grin. Stand out tracks: Uncertain Smile with killer piano solo by Jools Holland and Giant - awesome grin. A real feel good rush of an album!
