For the german rockers out there, rammstein's sehnsucht, mutter and reise reise. And hey, even if you dont speak german, they the guitar/bass/drumming/vocal timing will sweep you off your feet. alexisonfire, unless you've been under a rock for the last few years you've probly heard of them, love'em or hate'em. get their newer album "watch out!" cause its rocks hard. And refering to the person who was just dug up from under wence he came, get the billy talent ablum, probly one of the most solid english ablums out there.

so from a scale between 1 and awsome, i'd have to get this a really really good.

Oh, fuck, I forgot:

Beck - everything
The Replacements - Tim
Bruce Springsteen - Born In The USA
Bjork - Homogenic, Post, Medulla
Joy Division - Substance, while not an album per se, is goddamn definitive.
R.E.M. - Automatic For The People

Quote from: Skibas_clavicle
Jawbreaker - Dear You


You obviously meant to write "Jawbreaker - 24 Hour Revenge Therapy."  Type more carefully in the future.

Quote from: Reno
the Arcade Fire - Untitled (it is their Debut EP)


That album was weak.


Other albums unlisted:

The Black Keys - Rubber Factory

Just a great album.

The Mars Volta - Deloused in the Comatorium

The classic new progcore album.  Forget Coheed and Cambria or any of those bands, The Mars Volta are the important new name right now.

Les Savy Fav - The Cat and the Cobra

Very necessary post-punk album.

Dead Kennedys - Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables and Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death

No explanation needed

Velvet Underground - Velvet Underground and Nico

Classic album from the arguably first indie rockers.

Pink Floyd - Piper at the Gates of Dawn

No explanation needed

Jawbreaker - 24 Hour Revenge Therapy

Seriously.  It's Jawbreaker.  It's Jawbreaker's best album.  Ever.  Seriously.

My list felt empty. Why? I forgot to mention EVERY VELVET UNDERGROUND ALBUM.

Thank you for reminding me, sp2. :D

Wrong, wrong, wrong. Actually, I am German and I rock. And Rammstein suck harder than a vacuum cleaner powered by a black hole.
Their lyrics alone already give me cancer. In several parts of my body, among them the brain and the ass (the latter one for reasons I have yet to understand).

Yes, but given your list of german artists you don't like, it's clear that you hate music. :p

I dunno, I like Rammsteins lyrics. Maybe if I was a native german speaker, rather than a horribly stilted German student with atrocious grammar, they would seem really cliche to me or something, but I'm not so sure. I like Bloodbath and Mayhem lyrics.

"When the others searched for girls
I could already fertilize myself
I am not even downhearted then
When one tells me go fuck yourself "

Why has no one listed New Adventures in Hi-Fi by R.E.M. ?

I see a few references to Automatic for the People, and whilst I also love that album New Adventures is just so more complete and emotive.

Anyhoo my other essential CD's are -

Surfer Rosa - The Pixies (Criminally under represented in this thread!)
Adore - The Smashing Pumpkins
Mutations - Beck
Homogenic - Bjrk
In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country [EP] - Boards of Canada
Enjoy the Melodic Sunshine - Cosmic Rough Riders
Discovery - Daft Punk
Daisies of the Galaxy - Eels
Asleep in the Back - Elbow
XO - Elliot Smith
The Downward Spiral - N.I.N.
Screamidelica - Primal Scream
OK Computer - Radiohead
Chutes to Narrow - The Shins
gtis Byrjun - Sigur Rs
Pinkerton - Weezer

Nobody mentioned NAiH-F because 'Automatic...' owns its ass. Simple.

What!!!

E-Bow the Letter and New Test Leper are two of the best R.E.M. songs ever!

Automatic is very very cool but its a bit of a singles album (nightswimming kicks ass tho).

I was just about to come in here and post the Dead Kennedys; because, as you know, they totally kick ass.

but the music sucks because the keyboards don't have the cold/mechanical sound they had but a wannabe techno sound that it's pathetic for Rammstein standars.

I wish White Rabbit would never have been concieved, if only for the several occasions I was too lazy/drinks were to cheap to leave a bar where people for some reason felt they had to do karaoke versions of it.  That could just be me though.

Since lists are hip.  GWAR-Scumdogs of the Universe.  Mclusky - Mclusky Do Dallas.  Crass - The Feeding of 5000.  Subhumans - The Day the Country Died.  Citizen Fish - Thirst.  Modest Mouse - Lonesome Crowded West.  I felt there was more then this when I started the list but that is all that is coming out off the top of my head.

Discounting my taste is silly-wank experimental music I consider the following extremly worthwhile.
Kinks-Are The Village Green Preservation Society
Black Sabbath-Paranoid
Neil Young-Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
Can-Tago Mago
Sonic Youth-EVOL/Sister/Daydream Nation (It's hard for me to pick)
Wire-Pink Flag/Chairs Missing/154
My Bloody Valentine-Isn't Anything
Kraftwerk-Trans Europe Express
Slowdive-Souvlaki
The Jesus and Mary Chain-Psychocandy
Mercury Rev-Desserter's Songs
Slint-Spiderland
Polvo-Cor Crane Secret

Man, I put more straight 'indie' albums in there than I thought. I feel so dirty.

I'm not nearly as schooled in the ways of indie/punk/prog bands as the rest of you, so if you're in a poppier mood, these are essential:

Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
Depeche Mode - Violator
Madonna - The Immaculate Collection
Garbage - Version 2.0
Janet Jackson - The Velvet Rope (for artistic merit) or Rhythm Nation (for durability)
Oasis - Definitely Maybe
Michael Jackson - Thriller
Underworld - 1992-2002
New Order - Substance
No Doubt - Tragic Kingdom
Blondie - Parallel Lines
Daft Punk - Homework
Nirvana - Nirvana (or Nevermind, for you pesky purists)
Bjork - Homogenic
Pretenders - Pretenders

It's more for the fact it's the first GWAR album I had heard extensively.  Plus Maggots, Sick of You and the one's you mentioned.  I don't even own most of those that I listed, I was going for stuff that was formative to who I am, etc.

I was thinking the same thing, except about the Velvet Underground.
