Personal Faves

New to Sputnik, so here's a list of my favourite albums for no particular reason. Mostly British, mostly older,but hey. Feel free to recommend!

Was the best thing I'd ever heard back in 1994. Still is.
Never Apologise Never Explain

I could fill this list with Therapy? really. But I won't.
3The Wildhearts
Earth vs. The Wildhearts

The album that made me realise music was good. Defined my teenage years!
4Baby Chaos
Safe Sex Designer Drugs & The Death of Rock & Roll

Perfect mix of Wildhearts rock sensibilities and Therapy?'s edge and venom. My favourite switches between their 2 albums regularly.
5Faith No More
King For A Day... Fool For A Lifetime

Took me a while to get into this after Angel Dust, but was so worth it.
On The Turn

I wish this band had made more records.
7Polkadot Cadaver
Sex Offender

Supremely high quality throughout, although only really nine proper songs. Kinda feels like a collection of the greatest choruses ever!
Black Junk

They make the most unbelievable sound, considering they only use bass guitars and drums. An astounding debut.
9Captain, We're Sinking
The Future Is Cancelled

An album that has grown on me immensely since first hearing. An unusual amount of depth and complexity for an album that feels like pop punk, although the rough edges belie its uniqueness, and it features some of the most heartfelt lyrics around.
10Hundred Reasons
Kill Your Own

Band were something different when they came onto the scene. This is easy their best album.
11Manic Street Preachers
The Holy Bible

If Richey hadn't gone they wouldn't have been so big. But they would've been a helluva lot better!
12Fear Factory

An absolute belter of an album, which transcends all the genres in which it plays. Still sounds fresh and relevant all these years later.
13Down I Go
You're Lucky God, That I Cannot Reach You

A band that started impressively, and got better with each subsequent release. Managed to finish with an album so unique and distinctive that it couldn't possibly be bettered. Would love to hear them try though!
14Hell Is For Heroes
The Neon Handshake

There was a time when British Post-Hardcore was gonna take off. It didn't. These guys still rocked tho.
15Dog Fashion Disco

The soundtrack to the most horrific Chandler-esque film noir imaginable. It's great that DFD have a similar ambition to FNM, without sounding like FNM wannabees.
16Johnny Truant
In the Library of Horrific Events

Extremely heavy and brutal, but actually manages to just plain rock.
L.D. 50

Far and away the best thing to come from the nu-metal scene around the turn of the century, although they display much more of a Tool style vibe than anything akin to the detuned Adidas-wearing brigade.
Around the Fur

Always feel like the only person who thinks this is their best album. But it is.
The Frankenstein Effect

The standout release from Ginger Wildheart's massive discography. Somehow seamlessly blends metal, rock, thrash, hardcore and grind, as well as pretty much any heavy musical influence imaginable.

Went more punky and less industrial with this one, which made them sound much fresher and massively more relevant.
21The Mad Capsule Markets
Osc-Dis (Oscillator In Distortion)

All kinds of insanity going on all over this album. Crazy techno-metal-punk that could only come from Japan.
22The Venetia Fair
Every Sick, Disgusting Thought...

Big band punk rock, fronted by Michael Jackson crossed with JS Clayden. A proper room shaking out-and-out fun album.
23Enter Shikari
Take to the Skies

An album that excited and inspired me despite (or more than likely because of) its simple electronic production values and ridiculously irreverent lyrics. The less said about its follow ups the better, however...
