BBC Radio 2 Best Albums Easter 2013

There wasn’t a live album featured – excluded in the rules – but I thought I’d post the list anyway:

1   A Rush Of Blood To The Head
2    Keane – Hopes & Fears
3    Duran Duran – Rio
4    Pink Floyd – The Dark Side Of The Moon
5    Dido – No Angel
6    The Rolling Stones – Sticky Fingers
7    Pet Shop Boys – Actually
8    The Beatles – Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
9    U2 – The Joshua Tree
10    Queen – A Night At The Opera
11    Fleetwood Mac – Rumours
12    Led Zeppelin – Led Zeppelin IV
13    The Police – Synchronicity
14    Madonna – True Blue
15    James Blunt – Back To Bedlam
16    Bruce Springsteen – Born To Run

I’m not sure how meaningful this list of best and favourite albums really is although, like all lists, it provides talking points:

  1. All live albums excluded along with compilation albums and soundtracks
  2. List selected from the albums most often played on Radio 2, automatically excluding hidden gems
  3. Only one album per artist allowed so only Sergeant Pepper from The Beatles with Rubber Soul, Revolver, The White Album and Abbey Road all excluded when all could have been in the top 50.

What do you think?
