Gluey Porch Treatments and Unreleased Demos
1.  Gluey Porch Treatments and Unreleased Demos by Melvins

£16.98   Used & New from: £4.97
3.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Master Of Reality
2.  Master Of Reality by Black Sabbath
The list author says:

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (63 customer reviews)

Welcome To Sky Valley
3.  Welcome To Sky Valley by Kyuss

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (45 customer reviews)

Ruined By Idiots

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

ABSOLUTEGO
6.  ABSOLUTEGO by Boris
The list author says:
  "1 track, 62 minutes.  Not easy listening by any stretch of the imagination, but this debut of the leaders of the Jap stoner scene is well worth the effort"
£13.09

Earth 2
7.  Earth 2 by Earth
The list author says:
  "'Ambient metal'?  Something that sounds so uninviting shouldn't be this good, or this soul-cleansing..."

00 Void
10.  00 Void by Sunn 0)))

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Dopethrone
16.  Dopethrone by Electric Wizard
The list author says:
  "Ahhhh yeah, this is the good stuff.  Trance-inducingly heavy and progressive.  You keep expecting clouds of weed smoke to start pouring out of your speakers"

Holy Mountain
17.  Holy Mountain by Sleep

Surrounded By Thieves
18.  Surrounded By Thieves by High On Fire

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

The Big Black
19.  The Big Black by Orange Goblin
The list author says:
  "Good, if a by-and-large unremarkable, effort from UK stoners.  The hidden answerphone message at the end is a good laugh."
£13.95   Used & New from: £6.40
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Flight Of The Behemoth
20.  Flight Of The Behemoth by Sunn 0)))
The list author says:
  "More Sunn 0))) (they're named after a make of amp, BTW).  Perfect for annoying the neighbors and/or destroying your sub-woofer.  This one features Merzbow on a couple of the tracks"
Used & New from: £6.89
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Sperm Whale
21.  Sperm Whale by Thrones
The list author says:
  "Thrones is Joe Preston (a Melvins alumnus), his bass, a drum machine and all manner of electronics.  Sounds kinda like a sludge-metal Aphex Twin"
