STEAL THESE ALBUMS - some of the finest ever albums

"seany1979"
 
Fast Stories From Kid Coma
Fast Stories From Kid Coma
"An incredible record, arguably the best to come out of Seattle in the 90s - dense, swirling, psychadelic, heavy as f*** - awesome."
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
"A beautiful record - some hailed it the US equivalent of OK Computer but that is lazy - a stunning fusion of melancholy country, spot-on pop and discordant noise."
Spiderland
Spiderland
"Hearing this for the first time you are not sure how to feel - as disturbing as it is enthralling, Slint's masterpiece will hopefully sound great when they gig later this year having reformed...."
Brighten The Corners
Brighten The Corners
"Pavement's best record. Each tune will burn it's way into your psyche, and before you know it you will even have subconsciously memorised all the lyrics too. Brilliant."
Washing Machine
Washing Machine
"Daydream Nation and Sister are both superb, but I feel this underrated gem is SY's best. Listen to the beautiful, epic, Diamond Sea, or the woozy, childlike Unwind for proof. See?"
Dust
Dust
"Right up there with Fast Stories..., the Trees meisterwork still sounds as fresh and as huge today as it did back in 1996. The band impoded soon after, but their legacy is one of THE greatest albums"
LEVIATHAN
LEVIATHAN
"The most recent album on my list, but worth it's place. Mastodon provide the most thrilling slab of old meets new school, unreconstructed METAL that any of us had heard for a long time. Magnificent."
AT DAWN
AT DAWN
"MMJ are a wonderful, wonderful band, and I love each of their records, although because this one has "Strangulation" on it, which makes me want to cry. Jim James for president."
I See A Darkness
I See A Darkness
"Will Oldham has made many great records, but this was his most accessible and contains some of his most beautiful, coherent moments, as recognised by Johnny Cash. A super album."
Harmacy
Harmacy
"Dismissed as lo-fi chancers, this was a multi faceted, richly rewarding album that encapsulates heartbreaking balladry, razor sharp grunge and wistful instrumentals. Should be as huge as REM."
Isn't Anything
Isn't Anything
"MBV's rush of swirling, off kilter guitars, swoonsome vocal melodies and crunching riffs has aged well. Just edges Loveless for me; I wish Shieldsy would release more music!"
American Recordings
American Recordings
"The Man In Black ressurects his career with super-producer Rick Rubin, and goes on to make three more records, all near perfect but none quite as stunning as this."
Celebrity Skin
Celebrity Skin
"Forget about the try hard grunge of the first two albums or Courtney's poorly received solo offering, this was where Fleetwood Mac (AOR era) met Smashing Pumpkins, and where Love reached her peak."
The Holy Bible
The Holy Bible
"One of the most harrowing albums ever made is also one of the best. They hit their commercial peak with "Everything Must Go", but never matched the stripped down post punk and the themes explored here"
Sign 'o' The Times
Sign 'o' The Times
"The only person crazier than Courtney Love on my list, this was one of the best albums of the 80s, definately Prince's high point, when he was at his jaw dropping and vital best."
Marquee Moon
Marquee Moon
"Forget about your Strokes, THIS is it. A sprawling, cock sure, snarling collection of songs, held together by duelling, thrilling guitar bombast and Tom Verlaine's yelp. One of the greatest ever LPs"
Black Love
Black Love
"Greg Dulli guides you through what feels like a film noir with many twists and turns, at times sultry and smoky, with buzzsaw guitars and f*** you attitude only just around the corner. Awesome."
Liquid Swords
Liquid Swords
"The best of the Wu Tang solo joints, and also one of the best hip hop releases ever. Lyrically it is razor sharp, musically it intersperses angular beats with the trademark martial arts samples. Super"
Voodoo
Voodoo
"A rich gumbo of soul, hip hop and traditional rhythms and flavours, this is a modern soul classic."
Timeless
Timeless
"Aptly named, this is a record I keep going back to. Goldie has long since disappeared via an embarrassing stint in Eastenders, but not before perfectly encapsulating the feel of modern urban existence"
Welcome To Sky Valley
Welcome To Sky Valley
"The best release from one of the most important bands of the last 15 years. Mind blowingly heavy, the seeds of QOTSA are also sown with Demon Cleaner. Fantastic."
Ready To Die
Ready To Die
"I love Biggie. His enthusiasm, wit and flow set him apart and this album was the start of his massive success. Super sharp production, memorable rhymes and hardly a duff tune on there - dead on."
Hips & Makers
Hips & Makers
"Very raw, stark and beautiful, this is a world away from Throwing Muses and a remarkable album. The duet with Michael Stipe is a real spine tingler."
Funcrusher Plus
Funcrusher Plus
"As heavy as any metal release, Co Flow's dark and at times disturbing work has an almost infinite shelf life on account of the fact you hear something new with each spin. Deep."
Songs Of Love: LIVE
Songs Of Love: LIVE
"Mark Eitzel probably never topped this, on record anyway, as he sobs his way through AMC classics before a rapturous audience. Absolutely incredible and one of the best live albums you will ever hear"
