    Surprised and pleased that a) Portishead won, and b) Radiohead didn't. Amazed that Bjork's Homogenic didn't feature in the top 20 at all - ok, so I didn't vote for it, but I assumed plenty of others would. Here's mine..

    Daft Punk - Homework
    Gravediggaz - The Pick, The Sickle and the Shovel
    Squarepusher - Hard Normal Daddy
    Portishead
    Nick Cave - The Boatman's Call
    Stereolab - Dots and Loops
    Mogwai - Young Team
    Primal Scream - Echo Dek
    Aphex Twin - Come to Daddy
    Spiritualised - Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space

    Odd year but I guess when you look at them hard they're all a bit odd in retrospect.
    Thought there wasn't going to be a single US jazz album I liked enough, and when I came across one it was an album I had played maybe once when I first got it. At one point Keith and Julie Tippett contended for my affections with Les Diaboliques (Maggie Nicols, Irene Schweizer and Joelle Leandre), and then I found myself puzzling over choosing between All Saints or Kylie Minogue.

    Shola Ama and the Sophia Domancich Trio were runners up, as was the posthumous Jimi Hendrix album 'First Rays of the New Rising Sun'.

    As for trying to order them...

    You could have made the difference :D

    doubt it. Maybe it might have pushed nuyorican soul into the top 20, but can't see anything else was considering making the list.

    You could "pull a Knotted" by shaming us with your superior list?

    I think I only heard about 3 of my top ten during 1997. There was too much going on to be listening to albums, I tell ya!

    i think the point is to find new music to listen to - seeing peoples individual lists is the best bit

    It wouldn't have :)

    Might have got rid of bloody Aerosmith tho - Aerosmith??

    Basically, this year the 'interesting' albums were spread too thinly amongst voters, but the rockists stuck together.

    Their Appetite for Destruction humiliation in '87 was clearly an organisational kick up the arse.

    LOL must have listened to that Spritualized album dozens of times. Never cottoned on that it was a break up album. Just liked the sound of it as a (mostly) blissful noise
