The top ranking Australian album amongst our 100 + writers was a tight contest between The Drones' I See Seaweed and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' Push The Sky Away, with the former winning out by a whisker. And before you say anything, yes we do count Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds as an Australian act and we're not entering into any debate about it!
A few surprise dark horses make it in midway through the list; Jae Laffer's When The Iron Glows Red was a big hit with a handful of our writers, while Perth punks Grim Fandango upset plenty of bigger records by scoring a sneaky spot in the top ten.
Check out the full list and go and buy the damn records if you like the sound of them.
