Music Has the Right to Children

Treasure
3.  Treasure by Cocteau Twins
The list author says:

Kings Of The Wild Frontier
4.  Kings Of The Wild Frontier by Adam & The Ants

Maggot Brain: Remastered

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

White Pony
6.  White Pony by Deftones

The Complete Reprise Sessions
7.  The Complete Reprise Sessions by Gram Parsons

Slanted And Enchanted
9.  Slanted And Enchanted by Pavement
