The latest edition of the UK's Q magazine (cover date: July 2004) features their "50 best British albums ever" chart. Only one Pink Floyd album makes the top 50, and, unsurprisingly, it is Dark Side of the Moon, which hit number 14. Describing the album as "[Pink Floyd's] hifi-expanding amble through the national psyche", they talk of Roger Waters, who "penned elegantly neurotic lyrics about class, materialism and madness, while the band pared down its prog to manageable four minute tunes." They also comment that it was "America that really sat up and took notice, particularly of the anti-materialist Money, which, ironically, made Pink Floyd vulgarly rich".

Keith Allen ("Britpop clown", UK comedian and actor) added his comments, shown to the right. "I've always felt there's is a fine line between chilled-out hippy and dangerous psycho. For me, Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon joins the two together."

The top ten has some interesting entries, and some unexpected omissions:

Oasis ‘Definitely Maybe’
The Beatles ‘Revolver’
Sex Pistols ‘Never Mind The Bollocks’
Radiohead ‘OK Computer’
The Clash 'London Calling'
David Bowie ‘The Rise & Fall Of Ziggy Stardust’
The Rolling Stones ‘Beggars Banquet’
The Smiths 'The Queen is Dead'
Led Zeppelin ‘Led Zeppelin III’
Massive Attack ‘Blue Lines’

The July issue of Q is in UK shops now, together with selected European stores, and worldwide shortly. Our thanks to Chris for sending us the info and scans.
