Music To Shape Up Your Record Collection

Mr. J. Webb "jon52931"
 
Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness
Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness
"A True Masterpiece. Although Siamese Dream was great, this album stands out for its incredible ambition and the fact that every song is a classic, whether dreamy (Tonight, Tonight) or heavy (Bodies)."
Waterloo to Anywhere
Waterloo to Anywhere
"This album reeks of Carl Barat's anger and frustration but from it, he has created one of the best albums of all time, whether in the mocking Gin & Milk or closing lullaby B.U.R.M.A."
I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love
I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love
"Probably MCR's best album, their debut was a grim tale of a town overrun by vampires and although fantasist, Ray's spectacular work and Gerard's screams create an album which is almost flawless."
Making Dens
Making Dens
"From the jingly "You Can't Fool Me..." to the sensitive "Little Bag Of Hair" and back to the prog-rock thrills of "Zootime" this album is the definitive introduction to Thamesbeat."
The Freedom Spark
The Freedom Spark
"And but a few months later, Larrikin Love showed Mystery Jets how to properly rock out Thamesbeat style with an album yearning for freedom from a Britian that has nothing left to offer us."
Voices Of Animals And Men
Voices Of Animals And Men
"The Young Knives returned with an album that contained both smash hits (She's Attracted To) and hidden gems (Dialing Darling), this album sparkled and showed off The Young Knives faultless art-punk."
Silent Alarm
Silent Alarm
"Dark, brooding, uplifting, spirited, intense, intrinsic. Silent Alarm was all these things and more. Kele is a voice for a new, disenfranchised generation."
Funeral
Funeral
"With the power of an oversensitive tsunami, Funeral crashed onto our shores in 2005 and made us cry, then laugh and then cry some more."
A Call and Response
A Call and Response
"A Call & Response is fiery, intense and generally difficult to describe. It's just best to say this feedback-drenched, aggresive music is brilliant."
A Fever You Can't Sweat Out
A Fever You Can't Sweat Out
"Putting label-mates Fall Out Boy to shame, P!ATD created an album mixing pop punk, dance and even jazz (!!!), which sparkled amongst other dull American "emo" outfits."
With Love And Squalor
With Love And Squalor
"Damn catchy, you can bet this geeky trio's music will be lodged in your head for a very, very long time."
Howling Bells
Howling Bells
"Quite unlike anything else out there, this sultry, mysterious and dark album astonished anybody who had the joy to hear it."
Grace
Grace
"Jeff Buckley is the most spell-bounding musician ever and this, his only album, encapsulated him perfectly. RIP Jeff Buckley."
First Impressions Of Earth
First Impressions Of Earth
"Better than Is This It? Maybe so. The Strokes shocked the world with this diverse album and with songs as perfect as "You Only Live Once" and "Ize Of The World", that was no surprise."
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
"Unsigned indie with a singer whose voice is on the very border between ear-catching and irritating, this album is nevertheless perfect mixing Talking Heads and David Bowie to create a sehr kool album."
Fever To Tell
Fever To Tell
"Raw, garage art-rock that can both scream and shout (Rich) and be sensitive (Maps). Y Control is even quite dancey and amongst the hits that are well known are some diamonds."
Loveless
Loveless
"A bit before my time, I discovered My Bloody Valentine a few months ago and this album drifts and swells, hiding its secrets behind walls of feedback and white noise for only the patient to find."
Lazer Guided Melodies
Lazer Guided Melodies
"Slow, spacious - Spiritualized would sadly never make an album like this again. But with this album, they had created an album that could fill the universe if not take it over. Magnificent."
The Eraser
The Eraser
"Restless, bleepy and grim, Thom Yorke's The Eraser has eclipsed Radiohead latest effort, become a brother for Kid A and a rival for OK Computer."
Orchestra Of Wolves
Orchestra Of Wolves
"Whatever happened to punk? I'm not sure but Gallows have brought it back to 2007 kicking and screaming. Orchestra Of Wolves spits at you, insults you and leaves you wanting more."
Deloused in the Comatorium
Deloused in the Comatorium
"Despite being one of the most confusing albums ever made, The Mars Volta's self-indulgent debut album is astoundingly good - mixing their post-hardcore background with prog, jazz and latin. Bizarre!"
The Black Parade
The Black Parade
"MCR's latest effort detailed MCR living up to their potential mixing a story of Death with elements of Queen, Gogol Bordello and good, old MCR"
Black Holes And Revelations
Black Holes And Revelations
"It's difficult to choose between this album and Absolution. Both are enigmatic affairs detailing the end of the world and teaching other rock bands how to play their instruments."
Dookie
Dookie
"Where it all began. Where Green Day entered the mainstream and turned from bog-standard California punk-rockers into heroes in waiting."
Siamese Dream
Siamese Dream
"And back to where I began with Smashing Pumpkins. Siamese Dream is the definitive grunge album (more so than Nevermind) through Corgan's whine, Iha's guitar heroics and Chamberlain's immense drumming."
