The best mix tape ever: The 50 Greatest UK Indie Records of All Time

Morrissey (and the Smiths RULE)MOJO Magazine just published their list of the 50 Greatest UK Indie Records of all time.

Usually lists like this do little more than piss me off (and I do notice that the question of "What is an 'indie' release should asked), BUT, this list makes me want to take the next week off so i can listen to each record beginning to end. 

What's missing? Where does your favorite land?
