Hottest 100 Australian Albumsof All Time countdown

The wise heads of the music business declared that The Avalanche’s Since I Left You is the greatest album ever recorded by folks with Australian passports, but which albums are the Hottest local records for triple j listeners?

The voting has closed and now the results are ready to be released – by dripfeed. So soon we’ll know the answers to the important questions: How many Nick Cave albums will make the cut? How many records that never got played on triple j will make the cut? Can Striborg sneak onto the list? And how many albums will provoke angry grumbling about how triple j has ‘lost it’?

To give credit to Wolfmother, it is pretty impressive that they ripped off Led Zeppelin so well. They're not exactly a band that was short on technical expertise.

chico21

chico21 said on the 8th Jul, 2011

I loved their first album, one of my favourites. I like to think that was their only album.

ThatDude123

ThatDude123 said on the 8th Jul, 2011

Yeah, compared to the other rip-off bands Australia has produced, they're certainly one of the more talented in said skill of ripping better musicians off. That said, Tame Impala take the crown as best knock-off band we've produced to date.

There were some good albums in this list but you could easily predict the top 10. I was a little surprised that the Sleepy Jackson didn't get in.

powerfinger luvvers. i wanted kram to be number one

Victim

Victim said on the 10th Jul, 2011

at least it wasn't #1!

these polls are always going to include/exclude albums that shouldn't be there, but i think odyssey number five is a deserving winner compared to many of the other possibilities it could've been with the audience! also not a bad effort to have enough votes to get #1 whilst many would've only voted for one of the 2 between that or internationalist, along with the 2 others they had in there.

fwiw, I'm giving Odyssey #5 a listen and it isn't that bad. Sure it's an overproduced MOR record but at least it's got some good songwriting behind it.

Milky bars all round. Herald Sun is doing an article on it, but it appears the result was leaked to some degree, as in the last hour or so before voting (and betting) closed Sportingbet wound Odyseey #5 in to $2 favourite (due to taking a lot of bets on it) after it was about $35 odds throughout the rest of the voting period. Thankfully Centrebet still had it at $34 odds at the same time :)

Yeah true Triple M never play Wolfmother and that was in the other 95.

rodismdotcom

Nor do Triple M ever play Midnight Oil. A few of those in the other 95.

rodismdotcom

rodismdotcom said on the 10th Jul, 2011

That Whispering Jack album also was an all time indie classic that broke in this country because of the dubstep remixes Triple J gave airtime to during 1987.

Never heard that Jack Farnster on MMM either.

I've often thought of Australia as a place where even if you aren't talented in your chosen field, stick around long enough and people will accept you.
It would certainly explain the mediocre rock bands and unfunny comedians.

Victim said on the 10th Jul, 2011



fuck, how did i not notice that! i do remember seeing that they had internationalist at shorter odds than odyssey #5... but if i'd noticed it was that high odds i should've thrown a bit on it. that'd be almost as bad as my regret of not getting on andrew wilkie to win his seat down here at 23-1 until he was brought in to 15-1 when i knew he'd be a surprise win...

Grunge was a pretty big thing in the 90s.

Smells Like Teen Spirit came in at number 1 in the Hottest 100 of All Time vote.

As a 14 year old at the time, Frogstomp had such a massive impact on teenagers in Australia.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 11th Jul, 2011

I like Frogstomp, but it doesn't come close to Diorama.

Hinee

Hinee said on the 11th Jul, 2011

After listening to Frogstomp for the first time in years yesterday I'm totally satisfied with it's spot. As braveheart said, at the time that album was so influential to teenagers and for good reasons. The talent so far above and beyond that of a 14 year old makes it even more amazing.

You need to listen to the Violent Soho album. Soooo much better than Frogstomp. 20 years too late, but still grunge as fuck.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 11th Jul, 2011



I have that album.

I think the 20 years too late thing is crucial.

If Wolfmother and Tame Impala had been around in the late '60s - early '70s we might be talking about their albums as some of the greatest of all time rather than as being good albums but highly derivative of famous bands.

Wonder if anyone at jjj gave themselves a mid year bonus?

POWDERFINGER'S Odyssey Number Five has topped Triple J's Hottest 100 Australian Albums of All Time amid speculation a leak prompted a dramatic plunge in odds on the final day of betting.

The classic album went from 34-1 to 2-1 on June 26, the final day of betting on Sportingbet.

Matt Wright, 26, was last night celebrating a $1020 windfall after he put $30 on at 34-1 at Centrebet when he noticed the drastically shortened odds on Sportingbet.

"I didn't legitimately think Odyssey Number Five would get number one, but after noticing such a discrepancy in the betting odds I thought it was worth a punt," the Carlton man said.

"As time goes by, I've obviously thought someone at Sportingbet's known something."

Sportingbet spokesman Tony Wilmot said it was unlikely there had been a leak.

"I would have thought the price was just a bit too big and it was more of a case that the smart punters got on it," he said.

"It was the best backed album of all the albums in the list, and we face a good payout if it hits the number one spot.

"Powderfinger always does pretty well in the Hottest 100 lists," Mr Wilmot said.

"We were more of the opinion that Internationalist would beat Odyssey Number Five, but obviously we were wrong and they were right.

"Triple J always keep the winner top secret because obviously it's in their interests to do so."

Triple J did not return the Herald Sun's calls

138. Drapht - The Life of Riley
141. Something for Kate - Elsewhere For 8 Minutes
144. You Am I - Sound As Ever
148. The Drones - Wait Long By The River And The Bodies Of Your Enemies Will Float By

A perfect example of what was wrong with this countdown. I love Life of Riley, but it had been out THREE MONTHS when this countdown took place. How it ranked above those three albums (chosen arbitrarily and objectively of course) isn't just beyond imagination, it's just plain wrong.
