08. Radiohead - Hail To The Thief
09. The Mars Volta - Deloused In The Comatorium
10. Lowgold - Welcome To The Winners

Also really enjoyed albums by Unkle, Explosions In The Sky, Hot Hot Heat, Venus Hum, Twilight Singers, Tom McRae, Erlend Oye, Siobhan Donaghy, Kings Of Leon, British Sea Power, Mew, My Morning Jacket, The Strokes, David Bowie, Cardigans, Grandaddy and others.

Given Blur and Radiohead were my two favourite bands of all time...and given I thought they both dropped the ball badly one way or another on these albums...and given I thought Elephant only had "Seven Nation Army" going for it...I am pretty worried about the state of 2003's albums.

(I'm also worried about my galloping ellipsis fixation... )

Thanks Mr M0by for sorting this out, the top 10 is pretty much what I guessed although I didn't think Radiohead would grab the top spot.

Well done Mr M0by for taking the time and doing a job that even Mrs Moby would be proud of!

Nice to see Mr Green and Mr Wainwright sneak in there.

Good to see you appreciate the American Analog Set. Kudos.

Where the hell did Zwan get to? They finished in the top 20 in most lists I've seen in magazines...

Nice one - surprised to see Radiohead win that, although I disagree with Theo that both they and Blur dropped the ball. I thought Think Tank in particular was uniformly excellent.

Thanks for picking the ball up on this one, good to see Adam Adam Green, Bonnie Prince Billy and The Fall getting some reasonable positions.

Cheers for doing this Mr Moby. Am somewhat surprised with the forums voting here. 4 of my choices didn't make the top 50 which I don't really object to that apart from the fact that 2 of them were really top 10 material

Tom McRae- Just Like Blood

Maybe people forgot about this as it was released last Jan

But surely unforgiveable is the ommission of

Tindersticks - Waiting For The Moon

A simply brilliant album and shame on people for not voting for it

Didn't vote for it because i hadn't heard it. Following your comment though i'll check it out.

Looking forward to catching them at All Tomorrows Parties though.

Well Blur's album is nice enough, but almost entirely unlike Blur, so I found it hard to get into. It's very very depressing and gloomy, and not in a good way.

Hail to the Thief would have been an excellent album by anyone else's standards, but (especially after seeing it live alongside the older stuff) it just failed for me to have the edge that even Kid A (so not a favourite album of mine!) had. I'm a bit suspicious that the band was as much responsible for them heading this poll as the album was, but hey...

Still looking down the list they're certainly the best of the stuff on there I've heard, though Mogwai deserve to swap places with The White Stripes IMO...

Hopefully Mr Moby agrees.

Assuming he does would it be possible for him to do a list of every album that received a vote not just the Top 50.

Also it may be a bit of work but it could also be worth doing affiliated inks to each album on Amazon so the forums can make a wee bit of cash
