10 raw, raucous rock records

M. Hunkin "stoogesfan29"
 
Raw Power
Raw Power
"Iggy Pop and his henchmen invent punk rock five years before the Pistols. Amphetamine-charged, amped-up, and angry, Raw Power stands as the greatest rock'n'roll album ever made."
Rough Trade Shops - Rock and Roll 1
Rough Trade Shops - Rock and Roll 1
"The perfect intoduction to all manner of loud, scuzzy and sleazy (and often rare) garage/punk/rock'n'roll. Hardly a duff note on it."
In Session
In Session
"An exhilarating collection of their best tracks captured live in session - hear J. Mascis's guitar bleed all over the crashing rhythm's. Raisins and Bulbs of Passion are particularly excellent."
White Light / White Heat
White Light / White Heat
"The Velvets' finest hour. Pulsing with feedback, hard drugs, sleaze, and white noise. What more do you need?"
Surfer Rosa & Come On Pilgrim
Surfer Rosa & Come On Pilgrim
"Great dynamics, sheet metal guitars, pounding drums punctuated by Black Francis' violent scream and more-violent-still lyrics."
Elephant
Elephant
"Their finest album yet, the Stripes look to the past for their musical influences, but continue to drive things forward."
SUPERFUZZ BIGMUFF
SUPERFUZZ BIGMUFF
"Mudhoney's early mini-album pretty much defined the sound  of Seattle's nascent grunge scene. If I Think and In'n'Out Of Grace are amongst the band's most incredible work."
Psycho Candy
Psycho Candy
"JAMC fused feedback-drenced Velvet's rock with sweet melodic 60's bubblegum to underpin the Reid brothers compellingly bleak lyrics - think Phil Spector on bad trips!"
In Utero
In Utero
"Kurt Cobain's angriest and most honest work. And the band's loudest and rawest. A thrilling and disturbing grunge masterpiece."
Lack of Communication
Lack of Communication
"A fine blast of dark garage rock from the coolest denziens of the Motor-City scene."
