9. The Darkness, One Way Ticket To Hell And Back
Irrelevant factoid I left out of my upcoming review: hiring Roy Thomas Baker to flesh out your sound on the terrific but commercially unsuccessful follow-up to your US breakthrough is totally what Local H did with Pack Up The Cats.
10. Kelly Osbourne, Sleeping In The Nothing
Less affecting and unified than Shut Up!, but this still has more charisma and hooks than any of her more successful celebrity-first musical peers. If her stylistic left-turns continue, she'll rip off Lady Sovereign in 2008 and score her first US gold record with "Grimin'! (feat. Crazy Frog)"
11. Beastie Boys, Solid Gold Hits
