Copia
6.  Copia by Eluvium

Red Light
10.  Red Light by Grails

A Passion Play
12.  A Passion Play by Jethro Tull
The list author says:

£4.99   Used & New from: £1.95
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (69 customer reviews)

Subject To Change Without Notice
13.  Subject To Change Without Notice by Keelhaul

Nothing
14.  Nothing by Meshuggah

Perils
15.  Perils by Miasma & The Carousel of Headless Horses

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

The Dreadful Hours
16.  The Dreadful Hours by My Dying Bride
The list author says:
  "Now perhaps I'm letting myself down here but I just can't help liking MDB & have done since my early teens, so maybe that's simply why. If it's not this album its Turn Loose The Swans. Epic and gloomy"
£9.20   Used & New from: £2.57
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Times Of Grace
17.  Times Of Grace by Neurosis

Seminar Ii: The Holy Rites
18.  Seminar Ii: The Holy Rites by Old Man Gloom

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

Terrifyer
20.  Terrifyer by Pig Destroyer

Hail To The Thief
21.  Hail To The Thief by Radiohead
The list author says:
  "In a strange way I have put this up instead of Ok Computer because that albums greatness goes without saying, and because Hail to the Thief is also great."
£4.89   Used & New from: £0.50
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (202 customer reviews)

Handwritten Notes
22.  Handwritten Notes by Preston Reed
The list author says:

£21.33   Used & New from: £6.73
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Supermodified
23.  Supermodified by Amon Tobin

Blood Money
24.  Blood Money by Tom Waits

  "The greatest entertainer!! Almost impossible to pick a favourite, but maybe this is it. If you don't listen to Tom Waits then start, and if you do then I don't need to explain."
£8.90   Used & New from: £2.05
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

Max Richter: Blue Notebooks
25.  Max Richter: Blue Notebooks by Max Richter
