Top Ten Pop(e) Albums Of All Time

Have you ever wondered (and who hasn’t) what the Pope listens to on his iPod when he’s pounding the rubber on the treadmill at the gym? Well, wonder no more. Thanks to The Vatican’s official newspaper L’Osservatore Romano a comprehensive list of the Pope's musical tipples is available for all to see.

The usual suspects for any best album of all time poll are in there, such as ‘Revolver’ from The Beatles and Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumours,’ but one surprise is the admission of Oasis and their 1995 Britpop longplayer ‘(What's The Story) Morning Glory?’ - although the newspaper hail the Gallaghers themselves as ‘terrible’.

Bob Dylan, who doesn’t cut the mustard, also gets a bit of a Catholic slating. He is described as a ‘poetic visionary whose great fault is giving the green light to generations of songwriters - fine words and three notes, and has harshly tested the ears and patience of listeners, thinking that their tortured meanderings might interest somebody.’

In no particular order here is the top ten:

The Beatles - Revolver
David Crosby - If I Could Only Remember My Name
Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon
Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
Donald Fagen - The Nightfly
Michael Jackson - Thriller
Paul Simon - Graceland
U2 - Achtung Baby
Oasis - (What's The Story) Morning Glory?
Carlos Santana - Supernatural
