I would have to go for

"The Queen is Dead"+ The Smiths

I love you.

Personally, Leo Sayer's 'Endless Flight' really does things for me. Things.

"The Queen is Dead"+ The Smiths

"Going Underground"+ The Jam

"Favourite Worst Nightmare and "Whatever people say Im not + Arctic Monkeys

"colour it in " + The Macabees

You don't rate Humbug as highly as the other two? Personally I'd say Whatever people say... is their weakest.

All time favourites of mine:

Radiohead - Kid A + OK Computer

Beach Boys - Pet Sounds

M.I.A - Kala

Manic Street Preachers - Holy Bible

My last.fm most played albums are:

British Sea Power - The Decline Of...

Silversun Pickups - Swoon

GoodBooks - Control

British Sea Power - Do You Like Rock Music?

The Go! Team - Thunder, Lightning, Strike

This is only representative of the last three years though so it's biased towards new albums. Overall, I reckon I Should Coco by Supergrass would be at the top if last.fm had been around all my life.

That's an unusual/interesting choice.

It was Bob covering lots of dark traditional stuff as a 'get-out' of contract exercise, but I love it because now that he really is old, his voice sounds perfect on old songs like the title track and the wonderful ,Blood in my eyes'. Also, it got me listening to the Mississippi Sheiks, for which I am thankful.
