Re: Albums that were really great in your opinion but didn't make it in AM?

I would have assumed True Colours by Split Enz would at least be on here (even though it's my least favourite release of theirs...), but I feel like Dizrythmia, Time and Tide and Waiata/Corroboree all deserve a placement. I agree - 'True Colours' should be on AM as well as their debut 'Mental Notes...

Can we count madzong's list? It's well-thought-out, I think. Also it's only 98 songs, so it shouldn't take too long to add (if Gillingham's can get in with 100).

Great Band. So many good songs. 'Don't Dream It's Over' has that nice melancholy / nostalgic feel to it while 'Weather With You' always seems like it's exact opposite - joyful and upbeat.
