Dark Side of the Moon
Dark Side of the Moon
"An epic concept album, and one of the most successful on earth. Whether you like prog, metal, rock, indie, anything, this album is one to treasure.  Debatably the best album of all time."
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
"Another contender for the title of best ever album, Sgt. Pepper's was, at the time, daringly experimental, and still sounds fresh and powerful today."
OK Computer
OK Computer
"OK Computer combines yet more daring experimentalism with beautiful melodies, and song lengths the don't suffer the risk of alienating the listener.  It remains the peak of the alt. rock scene."
Lateralus
Lateralus
"In Lateralus, Tool combine eastern harmony with prog stylings, apocryphal lyrics and unconventional structures. A dark masterpiece, and a reason to get into metal."
In The Court Of The Crimson King [Original Master Edition]
In The Court Of The Crimson King [Original Master Edition]
"Pink Floyd + Satan = King Crimson. This album fathered heavy metal, but brought intelligence with it. Evil, powerful, majestic, and genuinely brilliant."
Blackwater Park
Blackwater Park
"Inaccessible at first, due to the growling death metal vocals that take up half the singing, but with enough listens, you will come to realise the beauty of these songs. Revolutionary stuff."
Thirteenth Step
Thirteenth Step
"The second release from the Tool singer's other band, this album is sublimely beautiful, while remaining immensely accessible. Great songwriting is in evidence, along with breathtakingly good vocals."
Pink Moon
Pink Moon
"Subtle, gently beautiful, with both a hauting melancholy and a spiritual optimism, this album is the antidote to every dull singer-songwriter nowadays, and has influenced countless modern  artists."
Howl
Howl
"If you want a rest from constant innovation, this is perfect - it takes the best parts of blues, of rock, of grunge, and condenses them into one well presented package. Clever, and great for the car."
Led Zeppelin IV
Led Zeppelin IV
"The highlight of Led Zeppelin's career, this album has it all - great rock, great blues and great folk. Plus, there's the little matter of Stairway to Heaven."
The Madcap Laughs
The Madcap Laughs
"An overlooked work of genius. While on some tracks (Dark Globe, in particular), Syd's turbulent interior is painfully evident, this is a great album, with whimsical humour and delightful songs."
Kid A
Kid A
"An electronic experiment for one of the greatest rock bands ever, this album cannot be rated too highly. It requires multiple listens and an open mind to get the full musical flavour,  but who cares?"
The White Album
The White Album
"The best known sonic experiment of all time, some songs on this album you won't like, but there is something for everyone here, and some songs (Blackbird, Happiness is a Warm Gun) that transcend time."
Deloused in the Comatorium
Deloused in the Comatorium
"This album combines Latin-American music with rock and metal to create pure brilliance, that, at the same time, does its very best to keep the listener from being alienated.  It's mind blowing stuff."
Everyone Into Position
Everyone Into Position
"A wonderful album from Manchestrian space-rockers Oceansize, Everyone Into Position is some of the finest, best structured prog to emerge from Britain in the last five years."
Frances the Mute
Frances the Mute
"Risky and highly experimental stuff, Frances the Mute is unlikely to appeal to anyone who disliked De-loused, but it is nonetheless a work of genius."
Ghost Reveries
Ghost Reveries
"A further refinement of the Opeth sound, this album, while not miles away from Blackwater Park, is the more accomplished piece of work, and is also an easier listen."
Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun
Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun
"A contender for most beautiful album of all time, the overseas debut of Sigur Ros is consistent in its alien magnificence. Melancholy and yet uplifting, this album is a fragment of perfection."

"Darker, colder, and perhaps even less accessible, ( ) still maintains the Icelandic beauty of Agaetis Byrjun, while adding a raw edge that was absent. Not quite as good, but still a masterpiece."
Takk...
Takk...
"Accessible, wonderful and never less than profoundly optimistic, Takk is Sigur Ros's third noteworthy album, and in it, they recapture the naivety and joy of childhood. Loveliness incarnate."
