27 October: Today marks the anniversary of Amy WInehouse's now historic album, Back To Black. It was the record that would turn her from a jazz obscurity into an overnight icon. Tragically, her second album would also be her last. RIP.
he phrase 'difficult second album' gets bandied about a lot, but the truth is that for many artists, this is the time we start to find their true voice. LP No.2 is a time for make or break, so we've chosen to celebrate the artists who've survived the choppy seas of the music industry to emerge triumphant with a glorious second record.
From Radiohead to Muse, Foo Fighters to The Beatles, LCD Soundsystem to Talking Heads and beyond - these are the 50 best second albums of all time.
