Journalist Tom Cox asked a panel of 50 experts to vote for their overlooked favourites. Therefore this Album Top 100 is called 'Alternative'. Tom Cox used best album lists published in Q, Mojo, the Independent, the Guardian, Rolling Stone, Spin and Virgin's Book Of All Time Top 1000 Albums, to make a list of about 150 established 'classics', the experts were not allowed to choose from. Greatest Hits albums and albums of the last 2 years were ignored.
As published in The Guardian, Friday January 29, 1999.
