Great instrumental progressive metal/rock with some nice jazz influences. Incorporates some speed metal aspects as well.
I had this on in the car yesterday and my sister said..."What is this? It sounds like an '80's movie soundtrack!"

It nearly came to blows. Good pick.

Opeth - Blackwater Park

This is beauty and Beast. I had a hard time choosing between this and My Arms Your Hearse. Both are terrific.

parliament funkadelic one nation under a groove.

*Monumental Funk album that starts out with the dance floor killer title
track. Every track a is solid chunk o funk. They even answer the question,
"who says a funk band can't play rock and roll?" Influential group in hip hop and
R&B today possibly at the height of their creative powers.

Queen - The Game

While most people will point to A Night at the Opera or Sheer Heart Attack as the quintessential Queen albums (I have them both), The Game is the one I listen to the most. It's a solid album, featuring "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" and "Another One Bites the Dust."

Automatic For The People

Great songs that hold up well. Most every song is either an F.M. staple or should have been. The one I would pick if I could only own one from the band. Man on the moon is here, which you may have seen in that Jim Carrey movie about Andy Kauffman (forget the name).

Nice suggestion, SR-71Panorama. Anyway,

Soul Coughing - Ruby Vroom

Uh, I don't know what to say... A must have if you like experimental-ish alternative rock.

The Wedding Present - Seamonsters

What a great CD! Another of my many finds as a direct result of talking to people at music sites like this on the internet. Nothing beats getting a recommendation from someone who has lived with an album for a few years ... and still loves it. This is definitely one of Steve Albini's best jobs (if not the best) as producer or engineer or whatever he called himself back in the early 90s. It's got the loud and powerful sound throughout, but full of subtlety as well. Building emotions that finally find release. The drum sound that drives many of the songs is just so immense and powerful and sensual. Close to a 10 on my completely unbiased and highly rational rating scale

Not too many X's, maybe XTC with English Settlement, or X with Los Angeles, or this one ..

Not too mnay Z's either, so I'll finish it off with one of my favorites from 1994 and then someone can start it over again

Hector Zazou - Sahara Blue

One of my favorite moments on this wonderful album comes in the second song, John Cale softly speaking the words ... "Her clothes were almost off; outside, a curious tree beat a branch on the window, to see what it could see" ... over spare guitar accompaniment by David Sylvian and Kent Condon, bass clarinet by Renault Pion, harp and backing vocals by Elizabeth Valetti, and claviers by Hector Zazou. The entire album is based on poems by the noted 19th Century French symbolist Arthur Rimbaud and is one of the largest and most eclectic gatherings of talent for one recording as you are ever likely to find featuring such diverse artists as John Cale, Bill Laswell, Brendan Perry, Lisa Gerrarad, Barbara Gogan, David Sylvian, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Gerard Depardieu, Dominique Dalean and many others (over thirty in all) with lyrics sung in six different languages.

^ Nice list. However, this could be an epic thread if everyone kept their lists in check.

Back on A I presume?

Aphex Twin - "Selected Ambient Works 85-92"

Richard James didn't invent Ambient Electronica, but he did re-invent it. He began by modding Moogs and worked toward designing his own "keyboards". During the mid 80's his singles made it rotation of the more progressive dj's in the world. "85-92" collects those singles together. At first, it seems spare, but the melodies are strong and, at the time, the sounds were/still unique. He became the godfather of 90's electronica and would define and inspire the worlds of Acid, Ambient, and Glitch.

A beautiful dirty electronic album that catches the universal tension and release of all great music.


V I couldn't agree more Davey. I added some thoughts to my post.
