It Keeps You Fresh, But In No Particular Order

A Listmania! list by "peterewilde"
 
The Bends
1.  The Bends by Radiohead
The list author says:
  "A pie made with love, sun, and possibly lovejuice. This remains to be one of the best albums ever made, with 'High and Dry' being perhaps the only low point of an otherwise perfect release."
£4.98   Used & New from: £0.57
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (179 customer reviews)

Kid A
2.  Kid A by Radiohead
The list author says:
  "The most rewarding album I've ever heard. To be honest, it isn't the easiest album to get into, but it is easily the best Radiohead album. A masterpiece- but you already knew that..."
£4.95   Used & New from: £0.88
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (430 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

OK Computer
3.  OK Computer by Radiohead
The list author says:
  "This critically acclaimed is on a par with the two above. Simply stunning, with pieces like "Airbag", "Let Down" and "Lucky" being some of the best ever written."
£3.90   Used & New from: £0.87
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (322 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

The Wall
4.  The Wall by Pink Floyd
The list author says:
  "A superlative work. As with Radiohead's Kid A, it's sometimes appreciated more as an album, rather than a collection of single songs. Although, "Comfortably Numb" is worth it alone."
£17.99   Used & New from: £5.26
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (333 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Wish You Were Here
5.  Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd
The list author says:
  "I just love this album. Far better than the somewhat overrated Dark Side of The Moon. Even if you dislike Pink Floyd, it's difficult not to fall in love with the title track."
£16.00   Used & New from: £4.97
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (434 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Animals
6.  Animals by Pink Floyd
The list author says:
  "Personally, this beats the two above albums, but is let down by the fact that it leaves you yearning for more. Ethereal and stunning, with infectious lyrics."
£19.18   Used & New from: £4.51
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (177 customer reviews)

Sea Change
7.  Sea Change by Beck
The list author says:
  "Beck is currently of the best artists around. Every album seems to see him progressing and never dwindling (you have not being paying attention Radiohead). This, Beck's most recent and best album..."
£9.11   Used & New from: £3.62
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (64 customer reviews)

Odelay
8.  Odelay by Beck
The list author says:
  "... and here's an earlier one, which is also (paradoxically) the best! You'll notice that Sea Change is a very different style to this, but Beck's sheer musical fluency will grab you."
£4.65   Used & New from: £1.47
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (29 customer reviews)

Mutations
9.  Mutations by Beck
The list author says:
  "This feels like a forerunner to Sea Change, but also fairly inferior. "O Maria", "Tropicalia", "Bottle of Blues" and "Canceled Check" carry this nice enough album."
£5.68   Used & New from: £1.18
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (14 customer reviews)

Grace
10.  Grace by Jeff Buckley
The list author says:
  "I was sceptical before I sat down to listen to this. Buckley was a 'genius', as I was told, and I was afraid of being disappointed- but don't you be. A genuinely beautiful album."
£3.97   Used & New from: £0.05
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (265 customer reviews)

Beautiful Freak
11.  Beautiful Freak by Eels
The list author says:
  "The music of the Eels is odd, a sort of grungey/blues/country/lo-fi rock. Their 'oddness' is demonstrated in this (ahem) freakishly beautiful wonderpiece. Follow this with a helping of..."
£4.42   Used & New from: £0.58
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (42 customer reviews)

Electro-Shock Blues
12.  Electro-Shock Blues by Eels
The list author says:
  "... this terribly bittersweet dark comedy. This album is rife with deeply strong, saddening, angry songs... and it's as sexy as hell too."
£5.26   Used & New from: £1.13
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (36 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Tom Mcrae
13.  Tom Mcrae by Tom McRae
The list author says:
  "I bought this for the depressingly scary "You Cut Her Hair" and didn't expect to get much further. He is a singing, songwriting genius, although his lyrics do sometimes seem rather cliched."
£9.70   Used & New from: £0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (70 customer reviews)

Just Like Blood
14.  Just Like Blood by Tom McRae
The list author says:
  "McRae, staggeringly, improves upon near-perfection. The opener, "A Day Like Today", is so chillingly fantastic it's hard to listen to the rest of the album. Carry on and you'll find gold."
£6.55   Used & New from: £0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (38 customer reviews)

Five Leaves Left
15.  Five Leaves Left by Nick Drake
The list author says:
  "Incredible... Drake was a master of his craft. This is one of those 'must own' things. (I still need to get Pink Moon though...!)"
£8.35   Used & New from: £2.50
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (129 customer reviews)

Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
16.  Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots by The Flaming Lips
The list author says:
  "This, as with most of the Flaming Lips albums, mixes truly bizarre lyrics with some truly bizarre melodies. Get this, then get the rest."
£4.92   Used & New from: £0.05
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (88 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Parklife
17.  Parklife by Blur
The list author says:
  "It sums up the 90s so well, remaining *really* fun throughout. 'Easier' than some of the music I've already listed, but we all need a break."
£2.95   Used & New from: £0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (53 customer reviews)

Think Tank
18.  Think Tank by Blur
The list author says:
  "Voted the album of the year in the (spit) Q Awards this year, and it deserved it. Definitely their best, showing they've moved on a lot since the Britpop days."
£6.83   Used & New from: £0.24
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (102 customer reviews)

Open Heart Zoo
19.  Open Heart Zoo by Martin Grech
The list author says:
  "Very sadly underrated and unknown- except for the title song being on that Lexus ad. Give this musically surreal album a chance, or I'll stab you in the face. Amazing voice, hugely atmospheric music."
£7.44   Used & New from: £0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (46 customer reviews)

The Optimist LP
20.  The Optimist LP by Turin Brakes
The list author says:
  "A guilty pleasure... sort of. Good, catchy, acoustic demi-indie pop. Nice, summery, chilled stuff."
£4.94   Used & New from: £0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (57 customer reviews)

See This Through and Leave
21.  See This Through and Leave by Cooper Temple Clause
The list author says:
  "This surprised me.. a lot. A highly addictive collection of weird, rocky tracks. At moments, it lacks the power desperately needed for some songs. Not perfect, but the band could be."
£6.05   Used & New from: £0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (36 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Turn On The Bright Lights
22.  Turn On The Bright Lights by Interpol
The list author says:
  "Again, another band with great potential, but unlike TCTC, this album remains coherent. Joy Division influences here, but not always easy to listen to."
£10.39   Used & New from: £0.99
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (75 customer reviews)

Automatic for the People
23.  Automatic for the People by R.E.M.
The list author says:
  "If you want to buy just one REM album, get this one. An obvious choice, but it really is a great album. (although I like Monster.. am I a masochist?)"
£4.40   Used & New from: £0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (113 customer reviews)

Magic and Medicine
24.  Magic and Medicine by The Coral
The list author says:
  "Surreal, psychadelic, sunny, bright, dark, moony, pretty nice. It's difficult to describe this album, as you can probably tell. It's worth it."
£3.90   Used & New from: £0.01
3.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (44 customer reviews)

Whatever and Ever Amen
25.  Whatever and Ever Amen by Ben Folds Five
The list author says:
  "Discards the usual guitar fanfares of rock and does with a nice harsh piano and raspy vocals yelling biting lyrics... sometimes. Some beautiful stuff here, notably 'One angry dwarf' and 'Brick'."
£4.81   Used & New from: £0.24
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)
