    Power, corruption and lies and Lowlife – New Order

    Surely Technique 🙂

    I said lowlife in my list. Power would be second and technique would be third on my list for new order.

    I can’t list a top ten too many variables depending on mood…

    Kate Bush – Hounds of Love is easily my number one album though. A stunning piece of work.

    Forgot that one. Saw her live in 2014. Awesome.

    Rancid – …And Out Come The Wolves

    Good call. It’s a pity everything since has been a bit shit.

    Cypress Hill – Black Sunday is another that’s just sprung to mind. There really are too many good albums.

    Think a thread of almost perfect albums would be better. Those that are spoiled by one or two duff tracks.

    i assume you know the story behind it, and why theyll never play it live. i actually like having a slow, haunting song in the middle of all the noise and never skip it.

    That’s why I skip it. I’m a big softie and it’s very sad.

    Brutalism is a far better album anyway.

    Agreed and I think Mother is their best track

    So many excellent suggestions here, in fact my two all time favourite albums have already been mentioned several times over…

    I’m a David Bowie fanboi, so my top two are Hunky Dory and Low.

    Spiritualized – Laides & Gentlemen

    Pulp – Different Class and This is Hardcore

    Libertines – Up the bracket. Don’t think I’ve listened to it for about ten years, might have to dig it out.

    Outkast – Stankonia (probably prefer Aquemini but usually skip a couple)

    Andy Shauf – The party

    Faithless – Reverence
    Skinnyman – Council Estate of Mind

    Lots of good ‘uns already mentioned! I’d also have Paul Simon’s Gracelands, Bob Dylan’s Desire, Weezer’s Blue Album, Joni Mitchell’s Hissing of Summer Lawns, Pixies’ Surfa Rosa, Nirvana Nevermind and Unplugged in New York, Smashing Pumpkins’ Mellon Collie.

    And I’d probably add (a non-exhaustive, unordered list):

    * Kaya (Bob Marley and The Wailers)
    * Death Is This Communion (High on Fire)
    * Reflections of a Floating World (Elder)
    * Hot Rats (Frank Zappa)
    * Kind of Blue (Miles Davies)

    What happened to them? Phenomenal album followed by lots and lots of utter shite

    Aha Shake Heartbreak isn’t bad as such, but it’s certainly not as good – agree that after that it drops off a cliff.
    I guess it’s the classic “you work your whole life on the first album, then work for a year on tour on the second one”, coupled with a shift towards stadium cock-rock that comes with playing ever-bigger venues. Shame though.

    Probably not a hugely popular one but ‘101 Damnations’ by Carter.

    Ooh, good shout. Loses points for not having The Music That Nobody Likes on it though

    PS, this is a bloody brlliant thread, I’ve been listening to stuff I’ve not even thought about for years, cheers!

    Fantastic thread, much to investigate hear – had a spin of Hell Is For Heroes – Neon Handshake last night, very good! 🙂

    Mine are all going to be achingly more mainstream but…

    Eponymous Roses
    Eponymous RATM
    Coldplay – Parachutes
    Finley Quaye – Maverick A Strike
    Ash – Free All Angels
    And absolutely Red Hot Chili Peppers – Blood Sugar Sex Magik. That album changed my life, and they’ve done nothing approaching it since. Nobody has, for me.
