So, this has been doing the rounds on Facebook and the like. Ten albums, off the top of your head - not necessarily the 'best' ones and certainly not the coolest, but the ones that have stayed with you, which you know and love like an old friend.
Here are mine (although I've since been angst-ing about all the things I forgot, obviously). The point is: don't judge. OK?
Leonard Cohen - The Future
Prince - Diamonds and Pearls
Cat Power - You Are Free
Nick Cave - The Boatman's Call
Hole - My Body The Hand Grenade
Sonic Youth - Goo
Joni Mitchell - Blue
PJ Harvey - Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea
Marianne Faithfull - Broken English
Shakespears Sister - Hormonally Yours
