STV show Scotland’s Greatest Album last night saw 15 songs chosen from the 00s – starting another great debate about the decade’s Scottish music. If you haven’t seen it, you can catch-up with the shows so far here.
The five-part show, which airs at 9pm on Tuesday both on the TV and online, sees viewers ultimately compiling what they believe to be Scotland’s Greatest Album.
Viewers choose their favourite three tracks from an expert panel list of 15 songs from each decade, starting with the 70s, then going on to the 80s and 90s. This week it was the 00s, the last of the four decades!
The esteemed selection committee includes T In the Park supremo Geoff Ellis, Scottish Sun columnist and DJ Jim Gellatly, songwriter John McLaughlin, Real Radio DJ Steve McKenna, football pundit Pat Nevin and SNP MSP and commentator Joan McAlpine. (Find out more about how the panel came to their choices.)
Should Idlewild or Mogwai have been chosen instead of Primal Scream’s Country Girl? And what about the likes of The Beta Band and Boards of Canada, to name just a couple? That’s before you even get to the lack of Susan Boyle on the list...
Visitors have until next Tuesday at midnight to vote on their 00s choices at at stv.tv/scotlandsgreatestalbum, where you can also listen to all the songs, catch-up, find plenty of extras plus extended panel discussions. The full list was as follows:
- Franz Ferdinand – Take Me Out

- Paulo Nutini – Candy
- The View – Same Jeans
- Calvin Harris – Acceptable in the 80s
- The Delgados – All You Need Is Hate
