Its Understood
1.  Its Understood by Estradasphere
The list author says:
  "Their first album, though all are required listening.  Mr. Bungle meets Mahavishnu Orchestra meets your creepy uncle's record collection whilst playing on your old SNES?  Oh yes."

5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Collection Prestige
2.  Collection Prestige by Carnival in Coal

£4.37   Used & New from: £0.24

Dommedagsnatt
3.  Dommedagsnatt by Thorr's Hammer
The list author says:
  "Heavier than any of this metalcore nonsense you listen to.  A bit like bench pressing whales."
Used & New from: £7.92

The Complete Studio Recordings
8.  The Complete Studio Recordings by John Zorn

4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Painkiller: The Complete Studio Recordings 1991-1994

Nattfodd
11.  Nattfodd by Finntroll

12.  Mothership Connection by Parliament

Vicuna
15.  Vicuna by Nuclear Rabbit
The list author says:
  "It's funk, it's ska, it's grindcore, it's metal, it's so tongue in cheek it looks like it has a hair lip.  Everything RHCP and Incubus should have been."
£23.95   Used & New from: £19.95
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Cosmos

£11.51   Used & New from: £4.51

Pork Soda
17.  Pork Soda by Primus
The list author says:

£5.64   Used & New from: £2.17
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Heartwork
18.  Heartwork by Carcass
The list author says:
  "Melodic Death Metal that doesn't make you want to vomit all over teenagers with too much eye-liner and not enough dedication to guttural bellowing."
£21.89   Used & New from: £3.89
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Iron Monkey
19.  Iron Monkey by Iron Monkey
The list author says:
  "Caused by an overdose of classic 80's doom and white cider.  The soundtrack to being slowly stabbed to death by homeless howler monkies."
Used & New from: £8.21
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

See buying options
Medulla
20.  Medulla by Björk
The list author says:
  "An opportunity to recommend Bjork AND the live collaboration between Rahzel and Mike Patton, which is sadly only available in bootleg form."
£5.99   Used & New from: £3.74
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (68 customer reviews)

Full Throttle
21.  Full Throttle by Blue Meanies
The list author says:
  "Decent ska.  Eclectic.  A decent horn section, which is a change.  Much more Ornette than Offspring."
£10.60   Used & New from: £3.98

Nola
22.  Nola by Down
The list author says:
  "Quite simply one of the finest hard rock / metal albums ever written.  Best album by Phil Anselmo, for certain."
£7.67   Used & New from: £4.56
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews)

Gallows Gallery
23.  Gallows Gallery by Sigh
The list author says:
  "Part of the first wave of black metal, despite being in Japan.  Sound nothing like Dimmu Borgir / Mayhem.  Doom/psychedelic/black metal/classic rock/jazz."
£12.59   Used & New from: £6.99
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Conqueror
24.  Conqueror by Jesu
The list author says:
  "The most crushing and beautiful music ever made.  This year, at least."
£10.78   Used & New from: £7.94
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Abandoned Language
25.  Abandoned Language by Dalek
The list author says:
  "The most important hip hop group, even more than Public Enemy.  Mogadon paced beats with a heavily noise-oriented ethic and an agressive T.S. Elliot on vocals.  I might have made that last bit up."
£14.31   Used & New from: £4.41
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)
