Best British rock/ pop album ever?

Ian Dury and the Blockheads: New Boots and Panties

Saw the band in the Shepherd's Bush Empire about 6 months before his death - what a band, what a genius.

Van Gough did some eyeball pleasers.
He must have been a pencil squeezer.
He didn't do the Mona Lisa,
That was an Italian geezer.

Absolutely no jest - it's brilliantly put-together album. Sting is a good song-writer and a very competent and professional musician indeed.

Some great tracks on that album - "I Hope The Russians Love Their Children Too" - "Children's Crusade" - "Moon Over Bourbon Street"

Well, each to their own, Hugmonster.... I do accept he is a brilliant musician though.

Here's another couple of my nominations:

Van Morrison: Astral weeks (Yes, I know he's Irish)

Sandy Denny (possibly the most beautiful and tear-producing female voice I have ever heard): The North Star Grassman and the Ravens.

Cool

If we're looking for just one, the best ever, no question, it has to be London Calling, by The Clash.

Huggy-

Dream of the Blue Turtles is a ten out of ten. When I shoot ILS's in weather, I hum the bass line from "Consider Me Gone" to keep cool and collected. In a hundred years, Sting will still be appreciated.

I'd like to put a vote in for Let It Bleed, Led Zep's one with the wizard on the cover (4?), White Album, Breakfast In America, and the winner: Who's Next!

Yes, I know...U2 are Irish - but the bass player's British so I reckon they can be included.
