Blues For The Red Sun
Blues For The Red Sun
"This is the best album by the best band since Black Sabbath. Kyuss were genre defining, Stoner Rock was a term created to try and describe what this band did."
Wish You Were Here
Wish You Were Here
"Shine on (the complete version) cannot be described in words. This and Dark Side are comparable to each other but I prefer this album."
L.A Woman

"The Doors are simply the best band to have existed. This , the eponymous debut and Morrison hotel are excellent. Also the Live in Philedelphia really captures the band brilliantly live."
Morrison Hotel
Morrison Hotel
"This deserves to be in this list just for Maggie McGill. That track and " Been down so long" are so dark and bluesy."
The Music

"Such a good band and even better live."
Love Is Here

"Another great debut. Not a bad track on this album, everything sounds so fresh."
Stadium Arcadium

"By far the best Chilli's album. So much variety and class in this. It's hard to see how they could possibly better this. And I thought Californication couldn't be bettered!!"
Dirt

"I just love this album from heavy, loud, in your face "Them Bones" right through to the dark and brooding "Down in a hole" and the magnificent "Would?" If you don't own this, then get it."
(What's the Story) Morning Glory?

"You can't have an essential list without Oasis, and Heathen Chemistry was so close but this was the best of the best."
Paranoid

"Impossible to decide between this and Black Sabbath, Black Sabbath. They really ought to both be in the list."
No Wow
No Wow
"The Kills are a very under rated band. This is a superb album. No Wow is a magnificent track you don't tire of hearing. Their 1st album is apparently just as good as this."
Live at Winterland 68

"This is a fantastic live performance of Joplin at her peak. Well worth an investment if you like this kind of female vocal style."
Headhunters [Sacd/CD Hybrid]

"Jazz is not everyone's cup of tea but this is a magnificent fusion that deserves attention."
Mingus Ah Um
Mingus Ah Um
"Again, really hard to decide whether to put this in or 'Black Saint and the sinner lady". This won due to it being more accessible. Classic jazz at it's best."
Vorsprung Dyk Technik

"A quick skip of genres again. This has everything you could possibly want from trance. No wonder PVD is known as God!"
DJ-KICKS

"The DJ kicks series is really consitent. Tiga is a new favourite. If you can get hold of his Essential Mix then do so, well worth a look."
DJ Kicks - Kruder & Dorfmeister

"Arguably the best of the series. This pair turn everything they touch to gold. Have a listen, you won't be disappointed."
With Teeth

"Reznors latest album and is certainly his most commercial. Excellent all the way through and Right where it belongs is now an all time favourite. Exceptional"
Hot Rocks 1964-1971

"Being unable to choose which Stones album to put in, I've gone for the best of their best period."
Nevermind

"Quite simply impossible to leave this out. Brough grunge to the mainstream and let us hear other fantastic bands. As a single Heart Shaped Box is the one track that should have been on this album"
Back In Black

"Great fun. This and Highway to hell were excellent albums. So much packed into such a short space of time."
