25 albums worth a listen Vol. 02

Mr Maggots "Loser"
 
Uncle Meat
Uncle Meat
"One of Zappa’s early albums. From an unfinished film of the same name. A greasy mish mash of hippie psych nonscense and beautifully composed music."
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven
"More atmospheric textures and melodies from this uncommonly good Post-Rock Outfit."
Doc at the Radar Station

"This is Beefheart showing a slightly more mature side, but still a swinging a sponge on the end of a string. This is album is full of marvellous musical/lyrical moments."
Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun
Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun
"A Beautifully atmospheric album from Iceland. Can’t understand a word they’re on about though, but it doesn’t seem to matter when the music is so world class."
American Beauty
American Beauty
"Many people overlook how music can make a good film great. In this case it turned a great film into a real beauty."
Powertrip
Powertrip
"Simple and effective chunky rock action with plenty of well-written songs and original touches."
Cypress Hill
Cypress Hill
"Side-stepping the obvious choice of Black Sunday. Quite literally the funky Cypress Hill S**t."
Shut Up 'N Play Yer Guitar
Shut Up 'N Play Yer Guitar
"Probably hard work if you’re not into guitar sounds. 3 discs of solid instrumental guitar tunes, featuring some wonderful tones and Zappa’s improvisational and musical skill."
Lemonjelly.ky

"A soothing blend of friendly instrumental/sample based tunes. Brings a childlike charm through your speakers."
The Berzerker
The Berzerker
"A Savagely Evil sounding album. Piercingly heavy and genuinely disturbing. Not suitable for dinner parties, unless it’s the guests who are being eaten. These Guys is Mentalistica."
Blow By Blow
Blow By Blow
"A Slick sounding jazz-funk fusion type instrumental affair from the mid seventies. That just about sums this up."
REEK OF PUTREFACTION
REEK OF PUTREFACTION
"Abysmal Sound Quality.  This album kicked off the whole ‘grindcore’ scene. Featuring classic song titles such as ‘Regurgitation of Giblets’ and ‘Feast on Dismembered Carnage’."
De La Soul Is Dead
De La Soul Is Dead
"An often overlooked album, after ‘3 feet high and rising’. An entertaining album interspersed with silly skits and arsing about. A big plate of hip–hop fun."
Skunkworks
Skunkworks
"A rather underrated album I think. Probably because it sounds nothing like Maiden. A stripped-down collection of storming space-grunge rock tunes."
The Sound Gallery
The Sound Gallery
"I’ve had this album for years, but this kind of music has become kind of retro fashionable these days. Still some damn fine recordings on it though. Reeks of Seventies cop shows."
Wormhole
Wormhole
"A dark and gnarly array of dry n squelchy drum n bassy in your facey."
Return To The 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version
Return To The 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version
"Dirty-ass rhymes and crust-funk bass beats from a certified Loony Toad Quack."
Fried in London
Fried in London
"A gritty and refreshing combo of Ska-Punk-Metal. Cracking live band."
Our Problem
Our Problem
"Satisfyingly heavy downtuned sludgecore stoner metal type scenario with insane vocal onions. Mentalists."
I Robot
I Robot
"A Quality Late-Seventies Prog-Rock type album."
Moog Indigo
Moog Indigo
"Another one that has now become ‘retro-cool’. Pioneering use of the now famous moog synthesiser. I cried with laughter when I first heard ‘gossipo perpetuo’. Smashing stuff."
The Principles of Science
The Principles of Science
"5 songs of wonder, featuring droney violin and finger picked guitar, pulsing piano and sweet vocals. That’s what the sleeve notes say."
Chronicles
Chronicles
"All of the Canadian Prog-Rockers finest songs stuffed onto two discs. I’d forgotten how good they were until now."
Crystal Planet
Crystal Planet
"You’ll probably find this a bit tiresome if you’re not into guitars. It’s just a pleasant and melodic album with some nice guitar based instrumental music."
In Absentia [European Edition]
In Absentia [European Edition]
"Some quality pieces of modern prog-rock. Great production, decent songs, multi-layered vocal harmonies and musical skill all add up to an enjoyable disc."
