Album artwork of 'Revolver' by The Beatles

Revolver The Beatles

One of the most enjoyable pop albums of all time, an iconic work that will forever be used as an example for songwriting expertise.

Album artwork of 'John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band' by John Lennon

John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band John Lennon

Raw, deeply personal, and tremendously honest, this was rock & roll as Lennon had envisaged it. Sometimes it's gorgeous, others twitchy and uncomfortable.

Electric Ladyland The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Instinctive, messy, and rambling, with shimmers of the divine. Electric Ladyland speaks in a kind of rock and roll tongues, with Jimi Hendrix front and centre.

Album artwork of 'Surrealistic Pillow' by Jefferson Airplane

Surrealistic Pillow Jefferson Airplane

A staple of the psychedelic folk-rock genre, feeling as fresh and vibrant now as it did in 1967. It sounds like a wonderful montage of the ’60s.

Album artwork of 'Favourite Worst Nightmare' by Arctic Monkeys

Favourite Worst Nightmare Arctic Monkeys

Riffs in giant proportions, subtleties hidden between the pedal switches, and Turner’s Sheffield charm in spades. Possibly Arctic Monkey's finest album.

Album artwork of 'Doolittle' by Pixies

Doolittle Pixies

Doolittle balances boisterous oddness with sweet and sugary pop tunes, making it not only Pixies' most intriguing record, but also the most accessible.

Album artwork of 'Definitely Maybe' by Oasis

Definitely Maybe Oasis

Rock and roll delivered with swagger is such a buzz, and that’s the game on Definitely Maybe. It's relentless, unstoppable, and totally mad fer it.

Album artwork of 'Visions of a Life' by Wolf Alice

Visions of a Life Wolf Alice

Visions of a Life is a triumph of contemporary British rock. The riffs roar and the melodies soar, with the band playing beautifully to Ellie Rowsell’s strengths.

Album artwork of 'Freedom's Goblin' by Ty Segall

Freedom's Goblin Ty Segall

Freedom’s Goblin is a victim of its own ambition, and of Segall’s protean talent. A lot of ground is covered, but the album’s identity never quite clicks into place.
