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… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHUd896Sur0

2. Our Love To Admire – Interpol
From the opening grace of Pioneer To The Falls to the frustrated anger of Mammoth, a modern classic…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAaXS_wioYg

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” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6P0SitRwy8&ob=av2el

4. Odelay- Beck
The “Loser” grows up and releases the most original album in years http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aa3rBVb3v4g

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… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TfqbuTBqX8&ob=av2el

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 http://vimeo.com/3554226

7. The Bends-Radiohead
I don’t care what anyone says, this album is so much better than OK Computer. A true masterpiece http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKd06s1LNik

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 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PaoLy7PHwk
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 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xm69M3jtZl4&ob=av2nl

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. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kz_6jagv_D4

Emos’s these days are clueless…. The classic goth album. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEH5jReEkSk&ob=av2em

Pioneers of the alternative scene, the madness of their live shows made these guys legends. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mm2Z9Mr9Ilw

14. Honeys Dead – The Jesus And Mary Chain
Distortion and stoner music at its best…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNfbcSBib64&ob=av2em
