Music is finite, opinions are endless. On The Album Years podcast, long term friends, collaborators and music nerds Steven Wilson and Tim Bowness discuss and bicker about their favourite music released during the golden album years, which they reckon to be from around 1965 to the end of the millennium. Each episode focuses on a single year picked at random. At the end of each episode they pick their personal favourites and the album they think had the most long-term impact on music. Can you guess which albums they will pick?

Episode 3 - 1992


The guys can't find much in their collections that they unconditionally love from this year, with even some of their favourite artists releasing what are lesser works in their opinion.  They consider why that should be and admit indifference to the dominant grunge music scene of the time.
Episode 2 - 1973

Episode 2 - 1973


Steven and Tim struggle to get their list of great albums released in this year down from a shortlist of hundreds.  So much so that they forget to mention King Crimson's Larks Tongues in Aspic completely, shame on them!
Episode 1 - 1980

Episode 1 - 1980


Steven and Tim reckon this is a fantastic year for albums, with the explosion of creative music coming out of the post-punk crucible. There are also some older artists producing some of their very finest work in this year.  Plus Tim tries to enthuse Steven about an ex-Beatle's solo album and Steven tries to do the same with industrial noise music.

Loved it ---- great to hear true muscians chat about albums that I grew up with and own ! The whole thing brought back memories of the wonderful John Peel. It's a pity you can't play some of the tracks that you love. Looking forward to the next one !! Nige
