Souvlaki
Souvlaki
"Labelled with the ludicrous 'shoegazing' tag but repeated listens reveal this to be a richly varied, warmly textured and extremely potent album. Only available on import but well worth the effort!"
Tourist
Tourist
"Jazz and Blues as we know and love them but fused with modern beats. Almost impossible not to involuntarily tap your feet and nod your head along to this one!"
Rings Around The World
Rings Around The World
"The album where Super Furry Animals finally became the band they had always threatened to be (they came pretty damn close on previous effort 'Mwng') too many standout tracks to name."
Insides (Version 2)
Insides (Version 2)
"'Orbital II' is more accesible but this is one of the only dance albums ever to move me in almost the same way that 'Dark Side of The Moon', 'Ziggy Stardust' and 'OK Computer' have."
Grinning Cat
Grinning Cat
"Of a similar ilk to Aphex Twin's early work but based largely around off-kilter piano lines and oddball vocal samples. Well worth checking out."
Officium [CASSETTE]
Officium [CASSETTE]
"Hypnotic choral chants from the Hillard Ensemble are blended masterfully with Garbarek's enchanting saxophone melodies. One of the few albums that ACTUALLY sends shivers down your spine!"
Queens of the Stone Age
Queens of the Stone Age
"A lot rawer than their more recent work and all the better for it. One of the best modern rock albums out there, simple as that!"
Mysteries Of Funk
Mysteries Of Funk
"Not as other-worldly as the work of LTJ Bukem but one of the few d+b albums that has tackled both sides of the drum & bass spectrum and sounded masterful from start to finish."
The Downward Spiral
The Downward Spiral
"Contains everything from unlistenable noise to gorgeous ambience via electro-funk but an explosion of industrial guitar is always waiting around the corner. One of the best albums of the nineties."
Vini Reilly
Vini Reilly
"An album of breathtaking instrumental guitar music that samples everything from Tracy Chapman to blues and gospel singers but still ends up sounding truly original."
Blood on the Tracks
Blood on the Tracks
"Dylan has made a LOT of albums, some of them admittedly pretty poor, but he can be forgiven for any musical faux pas for he has also made this. It is quite simply one of the best albums ever made!"
Imaginary Day
Imaginary Day
"Metheny is a virtuoso classical guitarist but this album flirts with electronica, jazz and a whole lot more. Exceptional."
Mezzanine
Mezzanine
"Arguably the best album to come out of the Bristolian trip-hop scene. Really it's the guest vocal performances from Reggae legend Horace Andy and the Cocteau Twins'  Liz Frazer that add a real edge."
Rounds
Rounds
"Dubbed as 'Folktronica' by lazy music journalists but really the music of Keiran Hebden cannot be categorised. At the time of writing I'm finding it difficult to listen to anything else."
Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space
Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space
"The first 'mainstream' act to incorporate the London Community Gospel Choir and this album sounds all the better for them. A lengthy album but easy to digest in one go - totally captivating."
Spirit Of Eden
Spirit Of Eden
"Sparse melodic passages explode into truly majestic choruses and then dissipate like waves in a storm. Disturbing or uplifting depending on your mood."
Deloused in the Comatorium
Deloused in the Comatorium
"Jazz-metal anyone? This album resembles the singer and guitarist's previous band 'At-the Drive In' but is far more complex and sounds even better for it."
Terror Twilight
Terror Twilight
"You want great riffs, gorgeous melodies, wild experimentalism, banjos and a harmonica cameo from Radiohead's Johnny Greenwood? You've got it and a whole lot more with this album!"
Serpents Egg [VINYL]
Serpents Egg [VINYL]
"If enya turned evil and soundtracked the apocalypse I guess it may sound something like this."
Mystery White Boy: LIVE '95-'96
Mystery White Boy: LIVE '95-'96
"Live albums have a certain stigma attached to them but this one breaks all the rules. Worth buying for Buckley's closing solo medley of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah' and The Smiths' 'I know it's over'."
Mellow Gold
Mellow Gold
"Taking its cue from blues, folk, country and a whole lot more - sometimes put through a Hip-Hop blender and sometimes slowed to an almost standstill but absolutely spellbinding from start to finish."
The Koln Concert
The Koln Concert
"Listening to this may be a depressing experience for any pianist as it is very unlikely they will ever compose anything half as spellbinding. Truly incredible."
Orblivion
Orblivion
"Ever stayed up all night on your own and watched the sun rise with an unexplained sense of serenity? If so this album may well strike a chord with you."
OK Computer
OK Computer
"This album changed the way I looked at music forever. It is the closest to perfection I believe I have ever heard and if anyone's ever made a better guitar album I'm yet to hear it. Nuff Said!"
Legend
Legend
"When listening to this for the first time I was amazed by how many songs I knew and each one I'd give 10/10. My Dad bought him a pint once."
