From The BBC:

Coldplay have beaten the likes of Pink Floyd and The Beatles to the top of a BBC Radio 2 poll to find listeners’ favourite album of all time.

A Rush Of Blood To The Head, Coldplay’s second album, which was released in 2002, came top of the list.

Keane’s Hopes And Fears took second place, with Duran Duran’s Rio in third.

The poll was held to tie in with the recent BBC season The Golden Age of the Album.

Coldplay’s Clocks also topped a recent BBC Radio 6 Music poll of the top 100 tracks of the past 10 years.

Radio 2 head of music Jeff Smith said: “With albums ranging from Sinatra in the ’50s to Emeli Sande in the last year, the range of eras and genres exhibited by the chart is typical of the breadth of Radio 2 and its distinctive music policy.

Here’s the full list:
1. Coldplay – Rush Of Blood To The Head (2002)
2. Keane – Hopes and Fears (2004)
3. Duran Duran – Rio (1982)
