100 Best Scottish Albums (The Scotsman)


Today Scotland decides. And today Spotirama has decided to listen to Scotland. This 100 Best Scottish Albums has been compiled by The Scotsman in 2012 and updated in 2013. I don't agree with everything - no Franz Ferdinand at all? - but I'm happy I found some old friends I haven't heard for a while (The Beta Band, The Delgados) and some even older ones I just met for the first time (The Incredible String Band, Orange Juice). Go to The Scotsman website for some notes about each album (1-25, 26-50, 51-75, 76-100) and listen to the playlist below, in the usual double version: full albums or 3-tracks-each-album.

Enjoy!
