25 albums worth a listen Vol. 05

A Listmania! list by Mr Maggots "Loser" (Manchester, UK)
 
Directors Cut
1.  Directors Cut by Si Begg
The list author says:
  "A great big bouncy ball of electronic brilliance. Innovative, witty and razor sharp - this has it all. Engaging from start to finish."
£6.87   Used & New from: £0.45
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Texture Freak
2.  Texture Freak by David Jack
The list author says:
  "Like DJ Shadow, but not really. Merge some sample based hip-hop and funk beats with seemingly inappropriate classical samples, add a pinch of humour and scratching and you've got this. Interesting."
£16.69   Used & New from: £0.19
3.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

The Impossibility Of Reason
3.  The Impossibility Of Reason by Chimaira
The list author says:
  "Part of the 'NWOAHM' Apparently. To me this sounds like a even mixture of Post-1994 Slayer, Pre-1996 Fear Factory and late-80's Metallica. Track 12 is 13 minutes of Chimaira in 'epic' Metallica mode."
£8.58   Used & New from: £1.24
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (31 customer reviews)

Ultimate Collection
4.  Ultimate Collection by George Formby
The list author says:
  "Top Bargain. Formby's 40 greatest songs on 2 Disks. The sound quality isn't great, but It's impossible to listen to this without playing the air ukulele while sporting a rather large smile."
Used & New from: £2.00
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Freak Guitar
5.  Freak Guitar by Mattias Eklundh
The list author says:
  "A highly skilled, fun and innovative guitar feast. Comparisons with Satch/Vai etc are inevitable, but this has a sound all of it's own - fresh, busy and amusing, with stupidly high harmonics."
Used & New from: £6.92
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Some Best Friend You Turned Ou
6.  Some Best Friend You Turned Ou by Max Tundra
The list author says:
  "This album is a little belter. I can't describe the music, other than it combines 'organic' and 'mechanical' elements beautifully. Sounds like a Jacobs Cream Cracker with Nutella and Chips on it."
£8.63   Used & New from: £0.24
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

The Ultimate Collection
7.  The Ultimate Collection by Average White Band
The list author says:
  "Not wishing to sound racist, this is the finest collection of white funk-soul music in existence. 'Pick Up The Pieces' is undeniably a world class bath towel of large proportions."
Used & New from: £6.99
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Niun Niggung
8.  Niun Niggung by Mouse On Mars
The list author says:
  "An uplifting combo of many different styles. Slices of Electronica, Blooty Orchestra, Cheesy pop are all in there. It's like creating a mutant cheese with a pocket calculator."
Used & New from: £3.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

50 Big Band Classics
9.  50 Big Band Classics by Various Artists
The list author says:
  "A nice cheap CD with 50 Big Band Classics on it - That's a fact."
Used & New from: £1.43
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

See buying options
Switched-On Bach
10.  Switched-On Bach by Wendy Carlos
The list author says:
  "The beginnings of electronica. Essentially just reworked versions of Bach compositions on the moog synthesizer, but it's more than that - it's a ruddy good effort from the late 60's."
£19.99   Used & New from: £19.75
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

Shivering King And Others
11.  Shivering King And Others by Dead Meadow
The list author says:
  "A retro sounding bluesy rock outfit. Sounds like a fusion of many different 70's rock bands, with a big warm lo-fi type sound. Lovely Stuff."
Used & New from: £5.49
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

See buying options
St. Anger
12.  St. Anger by Metallica
The list author says:
  "Like Marmite, it seems you either love or hate this one. Pushing aside the 'what Metallica used to be' pre-conceptions, I rather like it. It does drag on a bit though, but the DVD is a top bonus."
£9.90   Used & New from: £1.44
3.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (411 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Grand Theft Auto - Vice City
13.  Grand Theft Auto - Vice City by Various Artists
The list author says:
  "All the music from one of the greatest ever games. A top-notch collection in it's own right, it's quite literally a big box of 80's quality. Well worth the cash."
Used & New from: £53.72
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

Steal This Album!
14.  Steal This Album! by System of a Down
The list author says:
  "Despite the title, I didn't steal this album. Not as strong as the first two, but there is still some superb stuff on there, especially the likes of I-E-A-I-A-I-O and F__k The System."
£5.26   Used & New from: £0.63
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (39 customer reviews)

The Trees Are Dead & Dried Out Wait For Something Wild
15.  The Trees Are Dead & Dried Out Wait For Something Wild by Sikth
The list author says:
  "This isn't even out yet, but I just know it's going to be a Frantic Whopper of a Beast."
Used & New from: £3.29
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

Calculating Infinity
16.  Calculating Infinity by The Dillinger Escape Plan
The list author says:
  "All over the place. I see this as the Metal equivalent of Captain Beefheart's 'Trout Mask Replica'. Swings from extreme metal to free jazz and many places in between. Precision noise."
Used & New from: £3.59
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (14 customer reviews)

Disraeli Gears
17.  Disraeli Gears by Cream
The list author says:
  "A good album with bad production"
£5.85   Used & New from: £2.56
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (62 customer reviews)

Necroticism - Descanting the Insalubrious
18.  Necroticism - Descanting the Insalubrious by Carcass
The list author says:
  "An immense slab of rotting guts. The first Carcass album you could actually hear properly. Many have tried to recreate their low grinding sound and failed. The original and best."
£7.99   Used & New from: £5.76
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Holst: The Planets
19.  Holst: The Planets by Los Angeles Philharmonic
The list author says:
  "My favourite 'Album' from my favourite composer. He forgot about Earth though - and Pluto hadn't been discovered at the time. Star Wars and Close Encounters bonus tracks anyone?"
£5.76   Used & New from: £0.09
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Burn My Eyes
20.  Burn My Eyes by Machine Head
The list author says:
  "In my opinion the only decent album Machine Head have made, but what an album it is. 'Old' and 'Davidian' are simply Immense. Heavy as a gold plated anvil."
£4.46   Used & New from: £1.59
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (46 customer reviews)

The Songs Of Distant Earth
21.  The Songs Of Distant Earth by Mike Oldfield
The list author says:
  "It may not be cool, or considered a bid 'sad' to like Mike Oldfield these days, but I regard this is a cracking 'day dreaming' album. It just floats by nicely from start to finish."
£5.09   Used & New from: £1.69
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (79 customer reviews)

Spaced - Soundtrack to TV Series
22.  Spaced - Soundtrack to TV Series by Original Soundtrack
The list author says:
  "This album really cheers me up as it reminds me of moments from the rather special TV series. On it's own, the music is one the whole jolly decent too."
Used & New from: £1.71
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

The Collection 1977-1982
23.  The Collection 1977-1982 by Stranglers
The list author says:
  "A Compilation of all the Stranglers 'best bits'. It features such supreme songs as Bear Cage, Golden Brown and No More Heroes."
£6.77   Used & New from: £0.46
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews)

Reelin' In The Years
24.  Reelin' In The Years by Steely Dan
The list author says:
  "Possibly the worst album cover I've ever seen. Despite that, this is two discs of solid 'Dad Jazz', and there are some double bazzing tunes on it - like Bodhisattva, Black Friday and Peg."
£19.98   Used & New from: £1.10
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

The Great Outdoors
25.  The Great Outdoors by Bridge And Tunnel
The list author says:
  "If you're into the post rock/lo-fi brigade, you'll probably like this - It's got that big wide sprawling sound. There are some more conventional 'proper songs' on here though. A solid album."
£15.05   Used & New from: £0.01
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)
