15 Classic Albums
1Hanoi Rocks
Bangkok Shocks, Saigon Shakes, Hanoi Roc


Sleazy, raw and ready for a Friday night out on the town, this classic helped usher in the "glam" generation. Recommended track: "Tragedy"
2Motley Crue
Too Fast For Love


By far the best release in the band's illustrious discography. A perfect combination of hard rock. metal, a punk attitude and pop sensibilities.
3Burzum
Hvis Lyset Tar Oss


Lead by Varg's one of a kind voice, this is some of the most dense, emotionally satisfying black metal ever to exist.
4Spite Extreme Wing
Vltra


These guys while consistently amazing throughout their short discography, never really got the attention they deserve. Vltra is their magnum opus, combining black metal, punk and classic rock in a daring combination that pays off in dividends.
5Buckethead
Electric Tears


Far removed from the robotic shred that dominates most of his other albums, Electric Tears is a great exercise in chill guitar based bliss.
6Viggo Mortensen
Pandemoniumfromamerica


A colloboration between Buckethead and Viggo Mortensen, this one of kind album is filled with weird ambience the haunting prose of Mortensen.
7Deviser
Unspeakable Cults


Refined, classy and majestic black metal.
8Carcass
Necroticism:Descanting The Insalubrious


Carcass's first (and only) album played in a pure death metal style, this release sees them start to incorporate the melodic edge that would follow them on subsequent albums while retaining the crushing of traditional death metal.
9The Black Crowes
The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion


Probably still drunk from last night
10Damian Valles
Bow Echoes


Guitar based ambient that incorporates elements of classical amongst other genres. Really great stuff, the music will strike you at your core.
11Jonas Helborg
Octave of the Holy Innocents


Really awesome acoustic jazz from this Swedish born bassist.
12William Fitzsimmons
The Sparrow and the Crow


Probably the thing I enjoy best about William Fitzsimmons are his lyrics; he's not subtle, he doesn't write with crazy metaphors, everything is just upfront and honest. He also happens to be one of my favorite vocalists, his soft, whispered voice is just crazy alluring.
13OutKast
Stankonia


"Ms. Jackson" by itself brings this up to a 4 and the other songs are just icing on the (ice-cream) cake.
14Parliament
Mothership Connection


Shut the funk up, you know you love it too.
15Peaking Lights
Imaginary Falcons


Unusual lo-fi ambient that has some crazy addictive pop (AND REGGAE?!) hooks and ridiculously haunting female vocals.
