1.  You Forgot It in People by Broken Social Scene
The list author says:

Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven
5.  Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven by Godspeed You! Black Emperor
The list author says:
  "How much does this rock? Err, not a lot, but it's darned good anyhoo. Didn't like Yanqui UXO, and Silver Mount Zion are well daft (and not in a Chuckle Bros fashion either)"
22.33   Used & New from: 12.99
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (45 customer reviews)

Heart
6.  Heart by Stars
The list author says:

Ambient 1: Music For Airports
7.  Ambient 1: Music For Airports by Brian Eno
The list author says:
  "Intense doom metal from Suffolk! (Not really). I'm trying to set up a Brian Eno fan club but I'm having a few problems with the badges at the moment. Normal service will be resumed shortly...."

4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (41 customer reviews)

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

In Case We Die
9.  In Case We Die by Architecture in Helsinki

4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Slanted And Enchanted
10.  Slanted And Enchanted by Pavement

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

Aftertaste [Us Import]
11.  Aftertaste [Us Import] by Helmet

5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Lovely Thunder

Happy Songs For Happy People
15.  Happy Songs For Happy People by Mogwai

4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (31 customer reviews)

A Bell Is A Cup Until It Is Struck
16.  A Bell Is A Cup Until It Is Struck by Wire
The list author says:

Kaleidoscope
18.  Kaleidoscope by Siouxsie & The Banshees
The list author says:

4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

Mirrored
20.  Mirrored by Battles

Blue Sunshine - Deluxe Edition
21.  Blue Sunshine - Deluxe Edition by Glove

The Reminder
22.  The Reminder by Feist
The list author says:
  "Feist is gorgeous (and the music's great too). The question is: has Jason Parkes heard it? I'm not sure I can cope without his sage recommendations."

Fall Heads Roll
23.  Fall Heads Roll by The Fall

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)

World Class Listening Problem
24.  World Class Listening Problem by Don Caballero
The list author says:
  "This is too confusing for me to comment on. It's sorta like metal but it ain't, and it gives me a headache trying to keep up. The future of music? Naah..."
20.60   Used & New from: 3.55
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

The Drift
25.  The Drift by Scott Walker
