Classic Albums That Aren’t By The Beatles
Do not get me wrong, The Beatles are still the best ever, problem is, all their albums are classics. My Fav is Magical Mystery Tour, and I know that in order to show any mucical credibility your supposed to say Revolver is your favourite, I don’t care, I am the Walrus…. so there…
So anyway, if you don’t have these albums, get them right now, they are must haves, some are recent, some aren’t, but they all press my buttons. I have included a link to a YouTube clip where possible.
Let me know your thoughts. If you don’t agree, tough….
1. Siamese Dream – The Smashing Pumpkins
How can being in love be so gutwrenching. Billy Corgan and Co prove you can still sing love songs and rock hard…

2. Our Love To Admire – Interpol
From the opening grace of Pioneer To The Falls to the frustrated anger of Mammoth, a modern classic….

3. In Utero – Nirvana
Kurt Cobains big “Fuck You” to the record companies. Full of anger and self loathing. Originally titled “I hate myself and I want to die”

4. Odelay- Beck
The “Loser” grows up and releases the most original album in years

5. Electro Shock Blues- The Eels
Probably the one of the most heartbreaking albums ever, written after the remaining members of his family died, his sisters suicide, E still manages to end the album with a shred of optimism. Probably my fav album of all time…

6. The Downward Spiral- Nine Inch Nails
And you thought you were angry… Trent Reznor shows why he is so sought after as a producer. A totally mindblowing album on so many levels

7. The Bends-Radiohead
I don’t care what anyone says, this album is so much better than OK Computer. A true masterpiece

8. Fear Of A Black Planet – Public Enemy
Rap with a conscience. Public Enemy bring rap into the mainstream, and turn themselves into the voice of a generation
9. Whatever People Say I Am That’s What I’m Not – Arctic Monkeys
An absolute cracking album, these guys got popular via word of mouth and leaving recordings of their songs on thumb drives, and leaving them in the toilets at other bands gigs

10. Paranoid – Black Sabbath
The band that scared every parent on earth, and the singer that consumed every drug on earth… The original grunge band.

11. Pornography – The Cure
Emos’s these days are clueless…. The classic goth album.

12. Narrow Stairs – Death Cab For Cutie
Another modern classic, brilliant songwriting , songs that both haunt and stick in your head and are instantly catchy. Buy this now…

13. Nothings Shocking – Janes Addiction
Pioneers of the alternative scene, the madness of their live shows made these guys legends.

14. Honeys Dead – The Jesus And Mary Chain
Distortion and stoner music at its best….

15. Antichrist Superstar Marilyn Manson
Some may disagree, but I think it’s awesome, it’s a slap in the face to rock stars, like he is taking the mickey out of himself…

16. Mezzanine – Massive Attack
The classic Trip Hop album…

17. Black Holes & Revelations – The Muse
Who said prog rock was dead??

18. Golden Rule – Powderfinger
Awesome Aussie band, Burn Your Name always gives me a shiver, won’t say why…

19. Music For The Jilted Generation – Prodigy
Techno Music launches itself out of the underground…

20. Songs For The Deaf – Queens Of The Stone Age
Just buy it, it kicks ass….
