1.  MURMUR by R.E.M.
The list author says:

2.  Boy by U2
The list author says:
  "Without u2 the music world would be a very different place, but back when they had youth they tried to live up to their heroes of boy. So full of catchy hooks and joyous word play, perhaps their best"

The Smiths
3.  The Smiths by The Smiths

Generation Terrorists
4.  Generation Terrorists by Manic Street Preachers
The list author says:

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (49 customer reviews)

Weezer: Deluxe Edition (Blue Album)
5.  Weezer: Deluxe Edition (Blue Album) by Weezer
The list author says:

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews)

Slanted and Enchanted (Luxe & Reduxe 2CD Edition)
6.  Slanted and Enchanted (Luxe & Reduxe 2CD Edition) by Pavement

Surfer Rosa & Come On Pilgrim
7.  Surfer Rosa & Come On Pilgrim by Pixies
The list author says:

The Velvet Underground & Nico

Turn On The Bright Lights
9.  Turn On The Bright Lights by Interpol
The list author says:

10.  Parachutes by Coldplay
