After the stellar year he's had, it's not surprising that Bob Dylan topped the Los Angeles Times' Consensus Top 10 for 1997.
Dylan's album, Time Out Of Mind, which has already gone gold, ranked No. 1 in the newspaper's 17th annual poll. The top 10 albums were selected by a group of pop music writers who regularly contribute to the Times.
Rounding out the Top 10: Radiohead -- OK Computer (No. 2), The Verve -- Urban Hymns (No. 3), Sleater-Kinney -- Dig Me Out (No. 4), Erykah Badu -- Baduizm (No. 5), The Geraldine Fibbers -- Butch (No. 6), Cornershop -- When I Was Born For The 7th Time (No. 7), Portishead -- Portishead (No. 8), U2 -- Pop (No. 9) and a tie between Bjork -- Homogenic and Steve Earle -- El Corazón (No. 10).
