The Madcap Laughs
The Madcap Laughs
"An astonishingly jagged and emotional insight into the mind of an acid casualty. Out of tune singing, shifting electric guitar and quiet pyshedelic overdubs."
Check Your Head
Check Your Head
"Still the best Beastie Boys record for it's mix of fun hip-hop and funky jams."
Safe As Milk
Safe As Milk
"My latest obsession. Makes The Doors seem lame. That something this good is largely obscure is a crime."
Future is medium (1996)
Future is medium (1996)
"An obscure post-grunge gem. Like Nirvana combined with The Kinks, but better than how that sounds."
Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
"The first of 3 (yes, 3!) Flaming Lips records. A record that never gets old. A record that has enriched my life in every way. It's seen me thru a bad trip, and explained the universe to me."
Hit To Death In The Future Head

"Perfect 3 minute pop songs made with noise."
Zaireeka

"Masterpiece. Unique. Majestic. Revolutionary. The cd will probably be phased out in a few years, and you won't be able to listen to it anymore."

Jazzmatazz Volume II: The New Reality

"Still the best Lemonheads album. A collection of 2 and a half minute pop songs with at least 5 great ideas in each."
The Secret Migration

"Mercury Rev reach new heights of ethereal brilliance. It's like their previous 2 records, but better in every way."
Surfer Rosa & Come On Pilgrim
Surfer Rosa & Come On Pilgrim
"The blueprint for any alt. rock band that wants to be worth anything. So raw, so intense, so invigorating... perfect."
Stephen Malkmus
Stephen Malkmus
"A rock album for all moods."
Washing Machine
Washing Machine
"Noise so intricate that it sounds like classical music... if you get stoned enough. The best all round example of Sonic Youth's work."
Infernal Love

"What an album! Remember Therapy? for this."
After The Gold Rush
After The Gold Rush
"A gently swaying masterwork. Simple, yet very effective."
Tonight's The Night
Tonight's The Night
"Jagged and raw yet deeply emotional."
Mirror Ball
Mirror Ball
"The record that introduced me to Neil Young. I'd never heard a guitar sound like this before. The chord changes are so BIG, the solos unbelievable. It's brash, loud, unrelenting."
Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
"Nasty but irresistable hip-hop. Samples, beats, rapping and lyrics are all of the highest standard."
Another Side Of Bob Dylan
Another Side Of Bob Dylan
"Hard to decide which early Dylan record to include, so for now it's this one. Simple music, but witty and affecting lyrics. The performances are outstanding."
Supreme Clientele

"How many records on this list, y'all? One more. This one. Psychedelic hip-hop, I call it."
In Utero
In Utero
"Disparage Nirvana's influence all you like, but you can't deny that this is one hell of a record. The "grunge" record to rule, and to end them all."
