STEAL THESE ALBUMS - some of the finest ever albums

A Listmania! list by "seany1979"
 
Fast Stories From Kid Coma
1.  Fast Stories From Kid Coma by Truly
The list author says:
  "An incredible record, arguably the best to come out of Seattle in the 90s - dense, swirling, psychadelic, heavy as f*** - awesome."
7.99   Used & New from: 6.39
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
2.  Yankee Hotel Foxtrot by Wilco
The list author says:
  "A beautiful record - some hailed it the US equivalent of OK Computer but that is lazy - a stunning fusion of melancholy country, spot-on pop and discordant noise."
9.99   Used & New from: 3.68
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (28 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Spiderland
3.  Spiderland by Slint
The list author says:
  "Hearing this for the first time you are not sure how to feel - as disturbing as it is enthralling, Slint's masterpiece will hopefully sound great when they gig later this year having reformed...."
Used & New from: 6.34

Brighten The Corners
4.  Brighten The Corners by Pavement
The list author says:
  "Pavement's best record. Each tune will burn it's way into your psyche, and before you know it you will even have subconsciously memorised all the lyrics too. Brilliant."
10.00   Used & New from: 2.33
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

Washing Machine
5.  Washing Machine by Sonic Youth
The list author says:
  "Daydream Nation and Sister are both superb, but I feel this underrated gem is SY's best. Listen to the beautiful, epic, Diamond Sea, or the woozy, childlike Unwind for proof. See?"
5.34   Used & New from: 1.40
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Dust
6.  Dust by Screaming Trees
The list author says:
  "Right up there with Fast Stories..., the Trees meisterwork still sounds as fresh and as huge today as it did back in 1996. The band impoded soon after, but their legacy is one of THE greatest albums"
5.11   Used & New from: 0.28
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Leviathan
7.  Leviathan by Mastodon
The list author says:
  "The most recent album on my list, but worth it's place. Mastodon provide the most thrilling slab of old meets new school, unreconstructed METAL that any of us had heard for a long time. Magnificent."
10.09   Used & New from: 6.59
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews)

AT DAWN
8.  AT DAWN by My Morning Jacket
The list author says:
  "MMJ are a wonderful, wonderful band, and I love each of their records, although because this one has "Strangulation" on it, which makes me want to cry. Jim James for president."
Used & New from: 1.02
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

I See A Darkness
9.  I See A Darkness by Bonnie Prince Billy
The list author says:
  "Will Oldham has made many great records, but this was his most accessible and contains some of his most beautiful, coherent moments, as recognised by Johnny Cash. A super album."
11.79   Used & New from: 4.98
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

Harmacy
10.  Harmacy by Sebadoh
The list author says:
  "Dismissed as lo-fi chancers, this was a multi faceted, richly rewarding album that encapsulates heartbreaking balladry, razor sharp grunge and wistful instrumentals. Should be as huge as REM."
10.15   Used & New from: 1.92
3.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Isn't Anything
11.  Isn't Anything by My Bloody Valentine
The list author says:
  "MBV's rush of swirling, off kilter guitars, swoonsome vocal melodies and crunching riffs has aged well. Just edges Loveless for me; I wish Shieldsy would release more music!"
Used & New from: 2.59
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)

American Recordings
12.  American Recordings by Johnny Cash
The list author says:
  "The Man In Black ressurects his career with super-producer Rick Rubin, and goes on to make three more records, all near perfect but none quite as stunning as this."
Used & New from: 1.46
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)

See buying options
Celebrity Skin
13.  Celebrity Skin by Hole
The list author says:
  "Forget about the try hard grunge of the first two albums or Courtney's poorly received solo offering, this was where Fleetwood Mac (AOR era) met Smashing Pumpkins, and where Love reached her peak."
4.00   Used & New from: 0.34
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (41 customer reviews)

The Holy Bible
14.  The Holy Bible by Manic Street Preachers
The list author says:
  "One of the most harrowing albums ever made is also one of the best. They hit their commercial peak with "Everything Must Go", but never matched the stripped down post punk and the themes explored here"
5.06   Used & New from: 0.19
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (96 customer reviews)

Sign 'o' The Times
15.  Sign 'o' The Times by Prince
The list author says:
  "The only person crazier than Courtney Love on my list, this was one of the best albums of the 80s, definately Prince's high point, when he was at his jaw dropping and vital best."
6.22   Used & New from: 3.04
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)

Marquee Moon
16.  Marquee Moon by Television
The list author says:
  "Forget about your Strokes, THIS is it. A sprawling, cock sure, snarling collection of songs, held together by duelling, thrilling guitar bombast and Tom Verlaine's yelp. One of the greatest ever LPs"
6.72   Used & New from: 1.71
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (39 customer reviews)

Black Love
17.  Black Love by Afghan Whigs
The list author says:
  "Greg Dulli guides you through what feels like a film noir with many twists and turns, at times sultry and smoky, with buzzsaw guitars and f*** you attitude only just around the corner. Awesome."
Used & New from: 3.58
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Liquid Swords
18.  Liquid Swords by Genius
The list author says:
  "The best of the Wu Tang solo joints, and also one of the best hip hop releases ever. Lyrically it is razor sharp, musically it intersperses angular beats with the trademark martial arts samples. Super"
5.07   Used & New from: 3.25
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (43 customer reviews)

Voodoo
19.  Voodoo by D'Angelo
The list author says:
  "A rich gumbo of soul, hip hop and traditional rhythms and flavours, this is a modern soul classic."
5.81   Used & New from: 0.15
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (34 customer reviews)

Timeless
20.  Timeless by Goldie
The list author says:
  "Aptly named, this is a record I keep going back to. Goldie has long since disappeared via an embarrassing stint in Eastenders, but not before perfectly encapsulating the feel of modern urban existence"
12.94   Used & New from: 0.75
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

Welcome To Sky Valley
21.  Welcome To Sky Valley by Kyuss
The list author says:
  "The best release from one of the most important bands of the last 15 years. Mind blowingly heavy, the seeds of QOTSA are also sown with Demon Cleaner. Fantastic."
7.99   Used & New from: 2.78
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (44 customer reviews)

Ready To Die
22.  Ready To Die by Notorious B.I.G.
The list author says:
  "I love Biggie. His enthusiasm, wit and flow set him apart and this album was the start of his massive success. Super sharp production, memorable rhymes and hardly a duff tune on there - dead on."
24.99   Used & New from: 6.97
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (49 customer reviews)

Hips & Makers
23.  Hips & Makers by Kristin Hersh
The list author says:
  "Very raw, stark and beautiful, this is a world away from Throwing Muses and a remarkable album. The duet with Michael Stipe is a real spine tingler."
12.99   Used & New from: 1.48
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Funcrusher Plus
24.  Funcrusher Plus by Company Flow
The list author says:
  "As heavy as any metal release, Co Flow's dark and at times disturbing work has an almost infinite shelf life on account of the fact you hear something new with each spin. Deep."
31.87   Used & New from: 11.60
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Songs Of Love: LIVE
25.  Songs Of Love: LIVE by Mark Eitzel
The list author says:
  "Mark Eitzel probably never topped this, on record anyway, as he sobs his way through AMC classics before a rapturous audience. Absolutely incredible and one of the best live albums you will ever hear"
25.95   Used & New from: 17.63
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)
