6. Philip Glass – Glassworks – 1982

This is an album I still love after all these years. I went to see him in NY in Soho in 1977 in his loft. I also really loved the early music of Laurie Anderson (who took me and her sister Lisa to see Philip in 1977). It is a form of electronica that draws on so many different streams from Classical to Indian to nothing ever heard before. I just love it. I think that “Opening” is something I can listen to and never get tired of, like Chopin’s Fantasia Impromptu in C sharp minor




7. (Who’s afraid of) The Art of Noise – 1984

This album had a big impact on me when I first heard it. In my opinion it is one of the most ahead-of-its-time albums ever made. Listening to it now I still love many of the tracks and it is not really so out of place in todays music world but back in 1984 when I first heard it, I was pretty shocked and it took some time to really adjust to it.




8. Cibo Matto – Viva la woman – 1996

Just an amazing and unexpected mix of styles and ideas… I love the lyrics, the incredible transitions, the food theme is a bit odd but…



9. P.J. Harvey – stories from the city, stories from the sea – 2002

This album is intensely moving for me. I got it around the time my father died. It is an album that seems to me to share a lot of pain but don’t get the wrong idea. The songs are not depressing. They also have an optimism somehow embedded in them.




10. Coldplay – A rush of blood to the head – 2002

Yes, it is another popular album, but it was for me at least full of surprising new things. I still find it very creative and I think that Coldplay has done nothing before or after that is as interesting for me! Listen to Politik, how it starts off and how it evolves. I found it pretty amazing that someone could pull that off so well.
