God, I love a list! Very much approve of August and Everything After. It might’ve made my list but I think I was at uni already when it came out. My 16 year old list is a bit of an approximation because it was a really long time ago. I know these are the albums I loved the most while I was still at school.

Recent (excluding WAS because what would be the point!)

Late Developers - Belle and Sebastian

The Theory of Whatever - Jamie T

Here’s What You Could Have Won - Kid Kapichi

Gulp - Sports Team

Somebody’s Child - Somebody’s Child

16 year old me:

Actually - Pet Shop Boys

God Fodder - Ned’s Atomic Dustbin

Don’t Try this at Home - Billy Bragg

Out of Time - REM

Levelling the Land - The Levellers
