25 albums - the dark, the compelling and the great.

A Listmania! list by "catskii"
 
Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge
1.  Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge by My Chemical Romance
The list author says:
  "Despite many cries of 'emo', this album comes across as an intense and intelligent slice of rock with a dose of anger to make it truly exciting listening."
£3.99   Used & New from: £1.12
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (128 customer reviews)

Floodland
2.  Floodland by The Sisters Of Mercy
The list author says:
  "The best place to start for properly written, razor-sharp songs from one of the best darkwave guitar bands of the 80s and 90s."
£9.27   Used & New from: £2.86
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)

Off the Bone & Songs the Lord
3.  Off the Bone & Songs the Lord by Cramps
The list author says:
  "You won't find a more fun - or more trashy - band around. Much inspiration from PVC and B-movies, big hair and sunglasses after dark. Go now and hear it."
£25.95   Used & New from: £6.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Project 1950
4.  Project 1950 by Misfits
The list author says:
  "Although many Misfits fans would argue about this album, I'd say its the best way to learn about the Misfits sound. New lineup, same attitude, 10 fantastic 1950's covers."
£13.91   Used & New from: £5.83
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Dark Side of the 80s
5.  Dark Side of the 80s by Various Artists
The list author says:
  "A peculiar  but satisfying mix of 80s gems. Good to dance and sing along to, and a nice overview of alt. rock twenty years ago."
Used & New from: £6.99
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

Doolittle
6.  Doolittle by Pixies
The list author says:
  "The best Pixies album of their career, this is kooky, charismatic alternative rock who became known to the mainstream after a quick name-drop by one Kurt Cobain."
£6.00   Used & New from: £1.82
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (91 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Dirty
7.  Dirty by Sonic Youth
The list author says:
  "Fantastically melodic songs with a nice layer of scuzzy guitar. Top song here is 'Sugar Kane'."
£9.07   Used & New from: £1.14
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

PWEI Product 1986-1994: The Pop Will Eat Itself Anthology
8.  PWEI Product 1986-1994: The Pop Will Eat Itself Anthology by Pop Will Eat Itself
The list author says:
  "A fitting tribute to a great band. Guitars are industrial, but rap-inspired vocals and samples (and fab song titles) set this late, great band a mile above the competition."
£14.99   Used & New from: £5.60
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Razorblade Romance
9.  Razorblade Romance by HIM
The list author says:
  "Despite a meteoric rise to fame, HIM are a properly talented band. Look past the critics and see dark, romantic music from a superlative band with excellent vocals. Also fantastic live."
£4.53   Used & New from: £0.70
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (39 customer reviews)

Once
10.  Once by Nightwish
The list author says:
  "The latest in an impressive series of European/operatic metal records from Nightwish. Tarja has a beautiful voice which is not at all compromised by the metal backing from the other band members."
£7.48   Used & New from: £2.66
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (73 customer reviews)
