Richard D. James Album
3.  Richard D. James Album by Mike & Rich

Young Team

Hot Rats
7.  Hot Rats by Frank Zappa

Spiderland
11.  Spiderland by Slint

Reveille
12.  Reveille by Deerhoof
The list author says:
  "Manic, frenetic and downright genius, Deerhoof are a No-Wave slalom race bursting with broken melodies and severed riffs tumbling all around them."

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

Clouddead
13.  Clouddead by Clouddead

Loveless
14.  Loveless by My Bloody Valentine

Spirit Of Eden
16.  Spirit Of Eden by Talk Talk
The list author says:
  "The sound of Mark Hollis retreating from early New-Wave pop success to an abandoned church to record his interpretation of how the Garden of Eden would have sounded. Emotionally tender and captivating"

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

Kid A
17.  Kid A by Radiohead
The list author says:
  "A synthetic, kaleidoscopic view of introversion and alienation, like being trapped in a digital bubble deep below the sea, surrounded by aliens made of light. Altogether more engaging than OK Computer"

4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (421 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Chocolate Synthesizer
18.  Chocolate Synthesizer by Boredoms
