CD's that I swear by

A Listmania! list by D. Giles "om3gad" (Solihull)
(REAL NAME)   
 
Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness
1.  Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness by Smashing Pumpkins
The list author says:
  "My favourite band, my favourite album! The best 2 hours + of music that money will buy. It is in every way a masterpiece from one of the most influential bands ever!!"
10.67   Used & New from: 0.22
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (100 customer reviews)

Follow The Leader
2.  Follow The Leader by Korn
The list author says:
  "Going slightly against popular opinion, I think this is Korn's best all round album. Much more masterful musicianship with the same anger (in places) as s/t"
4.00   Used & New from: 0.35
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (71 customer reviews)

The Colour and the Shape
3.  The Colour and the Shape by Foo Fighters
The list author says:
  "No-one can touch Dave Grohl it seems! One of the best albums ever committed to CD. 'Everlong' ranks as one of musics most beautiful moments"
4.88   Used & New from: 0.20
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (120 customer reviews)

Relationship of Command
4.  Relationship of Command by At the Drive-In
The list author says:
  "Magnificently original work of art. I don't know how to describe this highly commendable album. Proves that music can be complicated and work."
9.58   Used & New from: 0.97
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (89 customer reviews)

Maladroit
5.  Maladroit by Weezer
The list author says:
  "Weezer's latest offering is possibly their most masterful to date. The only thing it lacks is the radio edit of 'Keep Fishin''. Otherwise a brilliant effort."
6.10   Used & New from: 0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (33 customer reviews)

Sinch
6.  Sinch by Sinch
The list author says:
  "One of the only new bands around worth commending, Sinch's self titled debut is everything you could want from an emotion-fed metal album. Definitely not 'Nu-Metal', more of a revolutionary sound..."
4.99   Used & New from: 0.07
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

The Downward Spiral
7.  The Downward Spiral by Nine Inch Nails
The list author says:
  "Trent Reznor comes back with legendary second album. An industrial album with more hooks than a fising shop - now thats hard to come across!"
5.77   Used & New from: 1.98
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (80 customer reviews)

White Pony
8.  White Pony by Deftones
The list author says:
  "Artistically, Deftones have reached a new level. White Pony is worlds apart from their other (also excellent) albums, and features some unusually anthemic songs."
5.79   Used & New from: 0.34
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (89 customer reviews)

Machina / The Machines Of God
9.  Machina / The Machines Of God by Smashing Pumpkins
The list author says:
  "Pumpkins' swansong is a criminally underrated album. It contains as many awesome songs as any of their other albums. Their most conceptual album provides superb quality music"
5.00   Used & New from: 0.93
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (64 customer reviews)

United By Fate
10.  United By Fate by Rival Schools
The list author says:
  "Walter Schreifels' latest post hardcore outfit provide an insanely emotional debut album. Artistically, it is a major improvement on Quicksand, which says it all in my opinion!"
9.99   Used & New from: 0.13
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (31 customer reviews)

Reign in Blood
11.  Reign in Blood by Slayer
The list author says:
  "Irrepressable thrash metal kings Slayer's ultimate album. So many melodic, heavy, ingenious songs that could easily mix it with any of today's heavy bands!"
Used & New from: 1.71
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (119 customer reviews)

Far Beyond Driven
12.  Far Beyond Driven by Pantera
The list author says:
  "Phil Anselmo's men at their very heaviest. Managing to maintain their melodic sound with such anthemic songs as '5 Minutes Alone' and 'I'm Broken'. You won't forget this in a hurry!"
5.57   Used & New from: 0.72
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Rated R
13.  Rated R by Queens Of The Stone Age
The list author says:
  "Stoner rock titans QOTSA's second album. Shaking off all memories of Kyuss, QOTSA unleash a beast of an album. A comlete musical masterpiece that doesn't make any sense! Go figure!"
8.99   Used & New from: 2.99
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (42 customer reviews)

Siamese Dream
14.  Siamese Dream by Smashing Pumpkins
The list author says:
  "Let's be honest, how could any Smashing Pumpkins fan neglect this? I can't explain this album; the music speaks for itself. Just listen and become one with it..."
14.99   Used & New from: 1.16
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (93 customer reviews)

The Height of Callousness: Limited Edition
15.  The Height of Callousness: Limited Edition by Spineshank
The list author says:
  "As far as 'Nu-Metal' (a term which I think is irrelevant) goes, Spineshank hold the monopoly. There is no heavier band around at the moment, and this second effort proves they have what it takes."
10.62   Used & New from: 0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (39 customer reviews)

Ideas Above Our Station
16.  Ideas Above Our Station by Hundred Reasons
The list author says:
  "Surrey's own Hundred Reasons show the world how to do emotional rock. Features some wonderful vocal melodies and irrepressable tunes."
6.02   Used & New from: 0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews)

Gift
17.  Gift by Taproot
The list author says:
  "How this band never exploded into the mainstream I don't know. Debut album that teaches most new bands a lesson in what music is."
8.09   Used & New from: 0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

Foo Fighters
18.  Foo Fighters by Foo Fighters
The list author says:
  "Another Foo's appearance. Dave Grohl's first effort (of which he plaed all but ONE guitar line on the whole album) which launched what would be one of the best bands around"
4.85   Used & New from: 0.77
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (38 customer reviews)

A Place In The Sun
19.  A Place In The Sun by Lit
The list author says:
  "Lit take the essence of summer and fuse it into this album. So many feel-good hits packed together on this ultimate party CD. Serious contenders for Kings of Chorus!"
7.73   Used & New from: 0.14
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (43 customer reviews)

System Of A Down
20.  System Of A Down by System of a Down
The list author says:
  "System of a Down's debut album takes metal to a totally new place, by fusing it with native Armenian music. Look out for 'Suggestions' and 'Peephole'"
3.99   Used & New from: 0.99
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (80 customer reviews)

Showbiz
21.  Showbiz by Muse
The list author says:
  "Emotional Brit rockers Muse show the world that depression is an art form. Love lorn ballad 'Unintended' never fails to bring me to tears"
4.88   Used & New from: 0.20
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (155 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Mechanical Animals
22.  Mechanical Animals by Marilyn Manson
The list author says:
  "How was Marilyn Manson to follow ACSS? With this - a bleak, depressing reflection on drugs in the form of Mechanical Animals. Absolutely brilliant, and totally outlandish 'near glam' rock"
4.30   Used & New from: 0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (49 customer reviews)

OK Computer
23.  OK Computer by Radiohead
The list author says:
  "Frightening is the best way to describe this album. Radiohead at their most vulnerable and paranoid, 'Ok, Computer' is their absolute classic follow-up to 'The Bends'. A beautiful album."
4.27   Used & New from: 0.74
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (299 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Rage Against The Machine
24.  Rage Against The Machine by Rage Against The Machine
The list author says:
  "This masterpiece is one of the best things to ever happen to music. RATM combine the best elements of hip-hop and rock, and Tom Morello's guitaring is inspiring. Simply ineffable!!"
4.39   Used & New from: 1.00
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (155 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Nevermind
25.  Nevermind by Nirvana
The list author says:
  "A tough decision, but I believe this to be Nirvana's best album. Effortlessly tuneful and packed with out and out classics, 'Nevermind' set the standards for rock music for years to come."
11.87   Used & New from: 1.06
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (312 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion
