Jet Generation
2.  Jet Generation by Guitar Wolf
The list author says:

11.94   Used & New from: 9.65
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Knock Knock
3.  Knock Knock by Smog
The list author says:
  "Wry, accessible, tuneful and doleful all at the same time.  There are many Smog albums to pick, but this is my choice... it just has relevance to me.  Pick any record by Smog - they're all fantastic."
8.65   Used & New from: 6.99
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Spiderland
4.  Spiderland by Slint
The list author says:
  "To my mind, the greatest use of guitar in an experimental post rock album ever EVER!  Will never be bettered... stick that in your pipe and smoke it, Mogwai"
Used & New from: 6.79
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews)

Songs About Fucking
5.  Songs About Fucking by Big Black
The list author says:
  "Simply careers along, taking no account of noise pollution levels in your neighbourhood.  Bitter, twisted, anarchic and funny."
Used & New from: 6.99
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Whatever, Mortal
6.  Whatever, Mortal by Papa M
The list author says:
  "Twists and turns, from country to sitar workouts.  Takes the work shown on his 'Live in a Shark Cage' LP and adds the human condition."
23.00   Used & New from: 3.59
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

In Utero
7.  In Utero by Nirvana
The list author says:
  "Just rocks..."
8.99   Used & New from: 0.16
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (109 customer reviews)

1000 Hurts
8.  1000 Hurts by Shellac
The list author says:
  "Diamond sharp musical arrangements allied to bile fuelled missives.  Don't listen to this in a good mood, it spoils the experience"
Out of stock
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Real Life
9.  Real Life by Magazine
The list author says:
  "Like being trapped on a cursed fairground ride... weird, arch and very, very clever"
17.95   Used & New from: 1.49
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Unknown Pleasures
10.  Unknown Pleasures by Joy Division
The list author says:
  "Dark, insular and terrifyingly influential, Unknown Pleasures still touches deep into the heart of British urban decay."
5.68   Used & New from: 2.15
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (60 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

The Holy Bible
11.  The Holy Bible by Manic Street Preachers
The list author says:
  "Unbelievably erudite, Richey Edwards' final lyrics inform the angular music on this LP.  Over time, the one record that the Manic Street Preachers can say matched the hype.  Essential."
5.06   Used & New from: 0.30
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (96 customer reviews)

Entertainment
12.  Entertainment by Gang of Four
The list author says:
  "In truth, Gang of Four's second LP Solid Gold is far better, offering huge refinements on Entertainment.  But it's out of print! Never mind, this'll do nicely"
7.20   Used & New from: 2.58
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)
