Some twisted music for your enjoyment.

A Listmania! list by S. R. Jones "The Black Goat" (Bristol, UK)
(REAL NAME)   
 
Bad Blood
1.  Bad Blood by Ice
The list author says:
  "Doom-hop? Sludge-dub? Whatever it is, JK Broadrick, Kevin "The Bug" Martin and various New Kingdom, Def Jux and Ninja Tune types create twisted headwreckin' beats. Essential."
Used & New from: £6.99

Hell'S Winter
2.  Hell'S Winter by Cage
The list author says:
  "Eastern Conference's misogynist wigger becomes Definitive Jux's scene kid on the psychiatrist's couch...  beats and rhymes straight outta the clinic, emo-rap minus the self-pity. Awesome."
£11.50   Used & New from: £11.49
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Asceticists 2006
3.  Asceticists 2006 by Whitehouse
The list author says:
  "Brutal, savage vocal-led power electronics, brilliantly articulate with alternately disturbing and funny lyrical moments. For heaven's sake don't play it to your Nan, lots of naughty words."
Used & New from: £20.00
3.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

TRUST
4.  TRUST by Low
The list author says:
  "Put this one on to calm down a bit after listening to Whitehouse. Beautiful male/female harmonies, drone /country/ indie-pop. They're Mormons, apparently. Probably Nan-friendly, this one."
£17.01   Used & New from: £3.94
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Young Team
5.  Young Team by Mogwai
The list author says:
  "Still their best album, although 2006's 'Mr Beast' is close. Widescreen post-rock beautiful noise."
£17.49   Used & New from: £1.34
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

The Complete Bitches Brew Sessions
6.  The Complete Bitches Brew Sessions by Miles Davis
The list author says:
  "The best jazz album I've ever heard, although I must admit I know little about jazz. Buy the box set for hours of funky electric noodlings."
Used & New from: £39.96
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Swordfishtrombones
7.  Swordfishtrombones by Tom Waits
The list author says:
  "An arbitrary choice really; this guy is a genius, and pretty much any of his albums could go on here for any number of reasons. Brechtian music hall meets savage blues meets pots n' pans etc etc..."
£7.99   Used & New from: £3.20
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (25 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Goo (1990)
8.  Goo (1990) by Sonic Youth
The list author says:
  "Not quite as consistently brilliant as Tom Waits, but not far off. I chose this album for sentimental reasons, as it was the first one of theirs I ever bought many moons ago..."
£9.36   Used & New from: £1.65
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

Godflesh
9.  Godflesh by Godflesh
The list author says:
  "Absolutely brutal industrial (in the TRUE sense of the term, none of this dayglo dreadlocks EBM nonsense) metal from Brum. JK Broadrick is a genius... for proof, check out this EP."
£42.95   Used & New from: £7.99
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Angel Dust
10.  Angel Dust by Faith No More
The list author says:
  "A metal classic from my teenage years, and surely the world's first real glimpse of the maverick (if somewhat self-indulgent) genius that is Mike Patton."
£7.08   Used & New from: £0.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (45 customer reviews)

Souls At Zero
11.  Souls At Zero by Neurosis
The list author says:
  "I'm a pretty recent convert to these guys, and to be honest this CD makes me wonder why I missed out for so many years; absolutely stunning, complex and heavy as hell."
£13.51   Used & New from: £8.98
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

White 2
12.  White 2 by Sunn 0)))
The list author says:
  "Very heavy, very monged & very good. Sends me off to sleep like a baby, essential dark meditation music."
£10.01   Used & New from: £5.99
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Versus
13.  Versus by 5ive
The list author says:
  "Again, good heavy meditation music, but with drums this time. Essential JK Broadrick remix on here, too."
£9.06   Used & New from: £6.24
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Blood Mountain [U.S. Version]
14.  Blood Mountain [U.S. Version] by Mastodon
The list author says:
  "Insanely heavy and complex, savage yet melodic metal. Lyrics on an abstract Dungeons & Dragons tip. Believe the hype!"
£5.99   Used & New from: £1.40
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (41 customer reviews)

Amputechture
15.  Amputechture by The Mars Volta
The list author says:
  "A damn good album, albeit overshadowed a bit by Mastodon's same-day release. 'Viscera Eyes' singlehandedly invents pornofunk prog-metal. Ace."
£8.27   Used & New from: £2.31
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Singing Bones (CD)
16.  Singing Bones (CD) by The Handsome Family
The list author says:
  "Ignore the fact that these guys are worshipped by dreadful psuedo-intellectual tosser's rags Uncut and Mojo, they make haunting, beautiful country music."
£9.25   Used & New from: £7.43
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (34 customer reviews)

Ring Of Fire: The Legend Of Johnny Cash
17.  Ring Of Fire: The Legend Of Johnny Cash by Johnny Cash
The list author says:
  "Speaking of haunting and beautiful country music, this is as good a place as any to start with the master. My Mum bought it for me for Xmas last year. Thanks Mum."
£3.00   Used & New from: £1.20
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (102 customer reviews)

The Black Saint And The Sinner Lady
18.  The Black Saint And The Sinner Lady by Charles Mingus
The list author says:
  "The second best jazz album I've ever heard, although I reiterate I know nothing about jazz; awesome proto-Albini production, sounds like all the levels were in the red."
£7.99   Used & New from: £3.34
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (15 customer reviews)

Surfer Rosa & Come On Pilgrim
19.  Surfer Rosa & Come On Pilgrim by Pixies
The list author says:
  "Speaking of Albini production jobs, this was the first one I ever heard. Also the first band I ever saw live back in the day. A noisy, poppy saunter down memory lane."
£8.26   Used & New from: £2.77
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (45 customer reviews)

At Action Park
20.  At Action Park by Shellac
The list author says:
  "Steve Albini once again, fronting arguably the best of his personal musical projects. The first and only album which I have been stupid enough to have artwork from tattooed on my own body."
£15.50
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Check Your Head
21.  Check Your Head by Beastie Boys
The list author says:
  "I just saw this on my shelf, and remembered how good it is, so on the list it goes. 'So What'cha Want' is a fuzzy-vocal dancefloor classic."
£7.82   Used & New from: £1.20
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Peeping Tom
22.  Peeping Tom by Massive Attack
The list author says:
  "Patton plays pop. Probably the only album that is actually any good to feature Nora Jones, ever. Splendid live act too."
£8.79   Used & New from: £3.99
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Absence
23.  Absence by Dalek
The list author says:
  "Any friend of Mike Patton's is a friend of mine. It helps if they sound like the offspring of Gang Starr and My Bloody Valentine too. Absolute genius."
£8.87   Used & New from: £4.24
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Stoner Witch
24.  Stoner Witch by Melvins
The list author says:
  "More friends of Patton. Used to hang out with some Cobain chap too, apparently. 'Revolve' makes me throw the horns."
£7.00   Used & New from: £3.44
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Panopticon
25.  Panopticon by Isis (Rock)
The list author says:
  "There's not enough room to recommend everything I want to on here! Suffice it to say this is a post-metal atmospheric classic."
£26.89   Used & New from: £4.85
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)
