So here it is. After a phenomenal 42 people voted, casting over 48,000 votes in total (~1,200 each) we arrive at what we think are the greatest albums made by British artists since the start of 1980, over 34 years ago - a long time before many of us were even born.

I deliberated over how I was going to present the results and I've come up with a less conventional way of presenting them.
Every album voted for will be presented - all 412 of them. I will be displaying a graphic for each year. The graphic will show all the albums from that year along with iTunes style "pop" bars showing a percentage for each album.
As you might expect, that percentage is the proportion of each album's votes compared to the overall winner of this competition.

To maintain some mystery over what actually does win - all albums that made the overall Top 10 will not have a percentage shown or have a "pop" bar. These albums will simple have "??" where a percentage would normally appear. Naturally, there will be 10 of these and I will run down the final 10 at the end.

This will all be much clearer when I reveal the graphics.

Predictions and speculation welcome - especially about which albums will top each year - no prizes for getting 1983 or 1992 correct. laugh.gif

Here are an alphabetic list (by artist) of all albums voted for under the year they were released. Please let me know if I've got a year incorrect - I used Wikipedia for many of them and we know how reliable that is.

Just realised that Doves were a glaring omission on that nominations list! At least "The Last Broadcast" should have made it IMO.

I feel like I overrated The Dreaming. I like it, but maybe I need more listens to really like it. Suspended in Gaffa is one of my favourite Kate songs though.

An impressive % for The Queen is Dead for The Smiths, 40% is pretty great, considering Buzzjack.

The Dreaming and Hounds Of Love are both incredible, Kate's two best I think and that's no mean feat!
