Here we go then Blues! the official Album countdown - thanks all for the entries.

Let the games begin!




100 - Gun N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction 2/22

1598451810491.png


Appetite for Destruction is the debut studio album by American hard rock band Guns N' Roses. It was released on July 21, 1987, by Geffen Records.

The album was released to little mainstream attention in 1987. It was not until the following year that it became a massive commercial success, after the band had toured and received airplay with the singles "Welcome to the Jungle", "Paradise City" and "Sweet Child o' Mine". It topped the Billboard 200 and became the best-selling debut album of all time, as well as the eleventh best-selling album of all time in the United States. With over 30 million copies sold worldwide, it is also one of the best-selling records of all time.


Bluehammer Fact: It's the best-selling debut album of all time! No other artist in music history sold that many copies of their very first album, so kudos to Guns N' Roses



100 - The Chameleons 2/22

1598454556052.png

Strange Times is the third studio album by English post-punk band the Chameleons, released 1 September 1986 on the Geffen record label.
Two singles were released from the album: "Tears" and "Swamp Thing".


Bluehammer Fact: Noel Gallagher cited Strange Times as an early influence on his songwriting: “...I’d forgotten how much this album meant to me. It came out in ‘86. I was 19!! I've been listening to it every day since and I have to say it's blown my mind..again ''



98 - The Smiths - Hatful Of Hollow 2/23

1598454877539.png

released on 12 November 1984 by Rough Trade Records. The album features BBC Radio 1 studio recordings and two contemporary singles with their B-sides. It was released in the United States on 9 November 1993 by Sire Records, which had initially declined to release the album in the US. Sire instead released Louder Than Bombs in the US in 1987—which contains several of the same tracks as Hatful of Hollow—as well as The World Won't Listen.

Bluehammer fact: Hatful of Hollow reached number seven on the UK Albums Chart, and stayed on the chart for 46 weeks




98 - Billy Joel - The Stranger 2/23

1598455343245.png

The Stranger is the fifth studio album by American singer Billy Joel, released in September 1977 by Columbia Records. It was the first of Joel's albums to be produced by Phil Ramone, with whom he would go on to work for all of his albums up until his 1986 album The Bridge

Bluehammer fact: The album won two awards at the 1978 Grammy Awards, winning Record of the Year as well as Song of the Year for "Just the Way You Are". It remains his best-selling non-compilation album to date




98 - Genesis - Duke 2/23


1598455633192.png

Duke is the tenth studio album by English rock band Genesis, released in March 1980 on Charisma Records. The album followed a period of inactivity for the band in early 1979. Phil Collins moved to Vancouver, Canada, in an effort to salvage his failing first marriage, while Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford recorded solo albums. Collins returned to the UK after his marriage ended and wrote a significant amount of material, some of which was used for Duke and some was later reworked for his first solo album, Face Value. Duke contained a mix of individually-written songs and tracks that evolved from jam sessions in mid-1979, while recording took place at the end of the year. The break in activity rejuvenated the band, and they found the album an easy one to work on.

Bluehammer fact: It was the band's greatest commercial success at the time of its release; it spent two weeks at No. 1 on the UK Albums Chart and peaked at No. 11 on the US Billboard 200

This is where it all finally went wrong and was the last Genesis album I bought. The changes to the band that had been coming since the exit of PG and then Steve Hackett were very evident. 'Misunderstanding" must be my least favourite Genesis track and I cannot listen to it live. It will be interesting to see how many earlier Genesis albums make it to this list.[/QUOTE]

It's barm so STFU.
So based on that list any album will need at least two entries to get into the top 100.

This could be fun. 0/5 for me so far, Genesis never even entered my head, The Chameleons album was in contention but didn't make the final edit.
