Albums worth listening to

I saw this on Steve Guy's blog which he got from doctorvee. (I haven't got as far as working out clever link thingies yet so you can't link to them). But being keen on listening to albums I thought I'd join in anyway:

Copy the list on to your blog, put in bold the ones you have listened to (completely from begining to end) and then add three more albums that you think people should have heard before they turn into their parents - remember, it isn't necessarily your most favourite albums but the ones you think people should listen to... and when we say listen we mean from track one through to the end...If you put a link to your follow-on post in the comments of the site where you found it, the chain will be trackable. You are also allowed to DELETE up to THREE albums on the existing list, if you feel a) that this is an album which should not reasonably be foisted upon anybody, or b) that one Radiohead album is quite enough for one lifetime, thank you.
This is Hardcore - Pulp
Moon Safari - Air
Elastica - Elastica
Never Mind the Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols - Sex Pistols
OK Computer - Radiohead

The Kiss of Morning - Graham Coxon
Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars - David Bowie
The Wall - Pink Floyd
Setting Sons - The Jam

Train a Comin' - Steve Earle
Come From the Shadows - Joan Baez
The River - Bruce Springsteen
The Very Best of Joan Armatrading - Joan Armatrading
What's Going On - Marvin Gaye
Metal Box - Public Image Ltd
Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain - Pavement
Apple Venus Vol. 1 - XTC
Marquee Moon - Televison
Daydream Nation - Sonic Youth
The Joshua Tree - U2
Untitled fourth album - Led Zeppelin

Jagged Little Pill - Alanis Morisette

Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd
Leige and Leif - Fairport Convention
Afraid of Sunlight - Marillion

I added these last three and would remove:

Confield - Autechre
Ágætis Byrjun - Sigur Rós
Folksinger - Phranc

I don't imagine you'll approve of any of my choices, but I did this anyway!

Well that's where you're wrong young man!

In fact I listened to Automatic For The People on my way home from Wyboston on Sunday. It is another of my all time favorites.

I also like Keane (who remind me of Marillion (who have just gone in at number 2 on the Download chart with their new single)).
