My favourite must have alt rock

Gary Harden "uknowthedril"
 
Appetite For Destruction
Appetite For Destruction
"cant not include this album and rightly starting proceedures.  A classic in all senses of the word, Sweet Child and Welcom to the Jungle do not age with time."
Almost Happy
Almost Happy
"A coming of age album from the Belgium 5 piece with their last studio album offering hearthfelt sorrow through Sarah Bettens husky vocals. songs such as Another Year and Tired blow you away"
Doolittle
Doolittle
"One of the most influential bands of all time recently making a comeback, the first album of theirs i bought and i think the best. Debaser, Hey, and Monkey gone to Heaven are the best of the bunch."
The Bends

"Simply one of the best British albums and bands of the 90's. this aldum has it all from the winding and progressive Fake Plastic Trees, to the crashing Just...and great guitars by Jon Greenwood!"
Disintegration
Disintegration
"Amazingly the 10th studio album from the Crawley band, with classics such as Love song and Pictures of You making this a dark but classic album"
Without You I'm Nothing
Without You I'm Nothing
"part of the 'brit rock' movement in the 90's placebo have rightly outstayed their welcome. this album is the best of the bunch with the title track and Every You Every Me mind blowing"
Hunky Dory
Hunky Dory
"some people dont get david bowie but this album is his finest work to date. Alt rock? what more can you ask for than the king of freaky lyrics and synthesied guitars. Life on Mars is exeptional."
The Queen Is Dead

"From the first up title track you know this is going to be something special. one of the timely albums i own and one which will stick with me for years to come"
Rage Against The Machine
Rage Against The Machine
"This is rap/rock at its finest. cant say a bad word about this album, zack is as furiuos as ever and with a tight rhythm section and tom doing unspeakable things with his guitar.  Awsom."
Siamese Dream

"Great album from the US boys (er and girls), the first album i bought from SP and with tracks like Disarm and Today i rightly bought some more."
The Velvet Underground & Nico
The Velvet Underground & Nico
"Got into this band fairly late after rading my dads LP collection. another hugely influential band, Reed is on top form and Nico offers some great vocals on All Tommorrows Parties."

"This is the 'currently in my CD player' catagory, bought it on a whim and turns out is one of the buys of the year. no bad songs, you have to own this if you like mellow rock on a rainy friday night"
Grace

"Only official release from the tragedy struck singer but with his haunting vocals on Grace its clear he was taken before his time. great album."

"Very much student rock but have to incluse this rightous lady as she is very much underatted and can right a stomper of a song if she wants. see Lucky and Anything."
The Singles 81-85

"Bought without thinking much but turns out its full of classics and although sounding slightly dated some of the later songs are classic Dep Mode."
Dummy

"If you want to chill out with i bit of harmonised mellow rock this albums got it covered. Beth Gibbons vocals are truly touching and at times very haunting."
Word Gets Around
Word Gets Around
"One of the very first albums i ever bought. this shows the Welsh band in prime form with their debut, and hits such as Thousand Trees and Not Up to Me one wonders why they hav never matched this class"
Led Zeppelin IV
Led Zeppelin IV
"My favourate Led Zep album and with classics such as Stairway to Heaven on can you argue? Black Dog and Rock and Roll also meet the high standard of ROCK."
Paranoid
Paranoid
"Staying with the rock i beleive this is the definitive BS album with Paraniod a rare commercial sucess and a thumping drum solo to finish things off. what more do you want?"
Definitely Maybe

"Brit rock at its best. We all know Oasis were much better than Blur."
Automatic for the People
Automatic for the People
"20 years and still going strong. this album is one of their best though the hits are very much spread out over the years. see Man on the Moon and Nightswimming."
The Holy Bible

"Finish with another Welch offering. this album was released back in the mid nineties and stood up for a generation. the last album with guitarist Richie before his dissapearence."
