Music, Music, Music
It is such an integral part of our lives.
Paul threw out the challenge - 10 best albums of all time.

Now that is a hard one!! A challenge that could have me lying awake at night, running through my choices, adding and deleting continuously. Weighing up the pros and cons of each. Agggghhh!!

So I have decided to go with the albums that I own that have made the most impression... off the top of my head... without too much pondering.

The Style Council - Cafe Bleu

Bruce Cockburn - Dancing in the Dragon's Jaws

U2 - The Joshua Tree

Pink Floyd - Delicate Sound of Thunder

Sting - Brand New Day

Jose Gonzalez - In Our Nature


Sufjan Stevens - Come on feel the Illinoise

Coldplay - Viva la Vida
