Monuments To Musical Weirdness

Mr. A. J. Lawson "siafu_harshnoise"
 
Trout Mask Replica
Trout Mask Replica
"Very much the weirdo's weirdo, the Captain and his gang laid down some distinctly acid-soaked, jazz tinged eccenticity on "Trout...". Decades ahead of its time."
Frizzle Fry

"Primus quite literally have a genre all to themselves. Their debut album is the heaviest, the funkiest and most jaw-droppingly technical of all their releases."
King For A Day, Fool For A Lifetime
King For A Day, Fool For A Lifetime
"Faith No More were notorious for hopping from one genre to another throughout an album, but on "King For A Day..." they sacrificed some variety in exchange for their own ugly brand of heaviness."
Bitches Brew
Bitches Brew
"Already a legendary jazz icon, Miles Davies gathered together the finest musicians he could find and recorded one of the first ever jazz fusion records. Surprisingly chilled psychedelic jams."
Plague Soundscapes
Plague Soundscapes
"The Locust are effectively four art students in bug suits making one hell of a racket. "Plague..." is spazzcore par excellence, not unlike being constantly punched in the face for 23 minutes."
Locust Abortion Technician

"If ever there was to be an accurate accusation that a band was insane this is it. Pitchshifted-to-death country/punk/blues/acid rock madness."
Catch 33
Catch 33
"Meshuggah are probably the most technically proficient band on the planet. "Catch 33" is one long song, brilliantly showcasing their contempt for standard time signatures."
Penderecki - Orchestral Works, Vol 1
Penderecki - Orchestral Works, Vol 1
"Containing both the brilliant "Fluorescences" and the nigh terrifying "Threnody For The Victims Of Hiroshima", this collection is a celebration of one of the most underrated modern composers."
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
"Often lauded as the Beatles best album (a title perhaps more worthy of "Revolver"), "Sgt. Pepper's..." is certainly one of their strangest. This represents the high watermark for all psychedelia."
Buried Secrets/Guts of a Virgi
Buried Secrets/Guts of a Virgi
"Consisting of members from Naked City and Napalm Death, Painkiller were the free jazz/grindcore soundtrack to the darkest of nightmares. You could probably make someone wet the bed with track 1 alone."
