Things We Lost in the Fire

Five Leaves Left
2.  Five Leaves Left by Nick Drake

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (108 customer reviews)

Sea Change
3.  Sea Change by Beck

Either/Or
5.  Either/Or by Elliott Smith
The list author says:
  "One of the many triumphs of Mr Smith, not as lo-fi as some and easier on the ear as a result.  A shame he can't provide us with more moments like these."
7.64   Used & New from: 2.50
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

Time (The Revelator)
6.  Time (The Revelator) by Gillian Welch

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (36 customer reviews)

Spirit Of Eden

4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (66 customer reviews)

Cast Of Thousands
8.  Cast Of Thousands by elbow
The list author says:

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (53 customer reviews)

Levitate
9.  Levitate by Idaho
The list author says:

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

The Creek Drank The Cradle
10.  The Creek Drank The Cradle by Iron & Wine

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

The Golden Band
11.  The Golden Band by Joe Cocker

Superwolf
12.  Superwolf by Bonnie Prince Billy
The list author says:
  "There is something creepy about this, as with all of will oldham's stuff there is a dark sexual edge to it.  Nice because it's Matt Sweeney doing the music for a change, atmospheric."
16.58   Used & New from: 4.85

No Earthly Man
13.  No Earthly Man by Alasdair Roberts
The list author says:
  "Hard going, done in a thick Scottish style which may not be to everyone's taste but a world away from the norm, which can't be bad."
Used & New from: 9.99
