Albums that went round and round

I was listening to Chris Evans on Radio 2 and he was bemoaning the fact that he was starting to like the new Dido album. It got me remembering albums of the past that really got into my inner being my having been played over and over again. There is no rhyme or reason to it- these are just off the top of my head.

Feel free to add a few suggestions....

1. Dido

5. Skids Scared to dance

Keane's first album.
btw: The Smiths should never be on any list of good music.

The smiths are quite clearly the best band of the 1980's!
