5.0 classic
A Tribe Called Quest The Low End Theory
Air Moon Safari
Aphex Twin Selected Ambient Works 85-92
Richard D James has a way with producing such bizarre sounds that never cease to boggle the mind, and his first LP is him at his smoothest. Standout 'Green Calx' blows my mind every time I hear it, while 'Ageispolis' has the perfect amount of reverb. Every track on here is such a weird assortment of strange noises that are so original and manage to resonate each and every time I hear them.
Bob Marley and The Wailers Legend
So universal. Backpacking through West Africa was proof that everyone can connect with this album. Rightfully revered around the world, Marley has put forth a standard in Reggae music that hasn't been touched and strikes a chord with everyone in the room.

thug life. thug life. thug life. thug life.
Massive Attack Mezzanine
If you've never heard the song 'Angel' you need to put it on. Right now. Just be patient with it and it will slowly blow your mind. Nothing but great tracks on here all creating such a dark brooding tone that twist and turn. Unlike anything before or after.
Nas Illmatic
Nicolas Jaar Space Is Only Noise
Nosaj Thing Drift
Brilliant in its simplicity, Nosaj Thing manages to deliver a Flying Lotus esque sound to the masses while still putting enough of himself in it to leave fans excited for his sophomore release
Pink Floyd The Dark Side of the Moon
'I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us...very hard to explain why you're mad, even if you're not mad...' Perfect composition, incredible inventiveness and precursors to an eerie yet soothing style of music that has in some ways never been matched.
R.E.M. Automatic for the People
Radiohead Kid A
'Yesterday I woke up sucking on lemon.' Nonsensical lyrics, twisted arrangements and bizarre beats. Genius
Radiohead Hail to the Thief
ScHoolboy Q Habits and Contradictions
Simon and Garfunkel Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme
Tangerine Dream Phaedra
The Beatles 1967 – 1970
The Doors The Doors
Philosophical, psychedelic and absolutely phenomenal. The keyboard work was so many years ahead of its time with lyrics that are so profound and hypnotizing. They just keep getting better the more you listen.
The Future Sound of London Lifeforms
I'd never given something a 5 after only 1 full listen before. But then again, I'd never heard Future Sound of London before either
The Jimi Hendrix Experience Are You Experienced
Thievery Corporation The Mirror Conspiracy
Tricky Maxinquaye
If Tricky's cover of 'black steel' isn't the greatest cover of all time, it is certainly the most inventive

4.5 superb

Amon Tobin Permutation
Animal Collective Merriweather Post Pavilion
Aphex Twin Richard D. James Album
Aphex Twin Windowlicker
Arctic Monkeys Favourite Worst Nightmare
Whatever People Say I Am was the fastest selling debut in British history for a reason. It isn't musical genius, but it put a great punk-spin on Indie comparable to what Mumford and Sons has done in the folk genre. Favourite Worst Nightmare is more punk and less Indie. Anyone who enjoyed their first album should definitely check this out. Even though it may not be quite as good, I actually enjoy this album considerably more than the original (Oh, and Humbug is a piece of garbage)
Beck Guero
This is pretty easily my favorite Beck album, and though I haven't plunged into Midnite Vultures or Mutations, I would be shocked if either overtook this gem. From start to finish, Beck unleashes every bit of his diverse influences on us and while everyone may know 'Hell Yes,' 'Girl' and 'E-Pro,' every track on this album is phenomenal and if you haven't listened to this one all the way through, you should -- right now

Exoplanet Bourbon Tape Machine
The Sad Demise Of R. Milhous is an absolutely phenomenal use of context for a song to have, and all 3 tracks on here are absolutely sensational.r(offered by the label for free at: http://specialfordjs.com/house/3268-exoplanet-bourbon-tape-machine-ep.html )

Radiohead Amnesiac
Dubbed Kid B so unfairly. This is every bit as good as the 2000 masterpiece below. The transition from 'Pyramid Song' to 'Pulk / Pull' to 'You and Whose Army' is the best 3 song segment Radiohead ever put together. Delve into this gem, and you'll be thrown in opposite directions simultaneously. Not easy to bare, yet once you've made your peace, the songs become so soothing and so natural that you realize your entire world has changed.

The Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
My favorite album from my first favorite band. Cover to cover, this is the most complete Beatles album, and 'A Day in the Life' is their seminal achievement. Even the tracks on here that not everyone knows are gems that contribute to a sublime musical progression.

You probably haven't heard of these guys -- and that's a mistake. Being a kind of fusion between Phish and Aphex Twin, their music has been dubbed jamtronica (electronic jam band). Constantly touring and playing big festivals to clouds of weed, with hippies on all sorts of drugs, they are a band to watch in the coming years as well as one you have to see live if they're coming to a town near you. (sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1syZXrL9WA4)
Massive Attack Blue Lines
An ingeniously inventive album with some tracks ('safe from harm', 'daydreaming', 'unfinished symphony', 'blue lines') that are still unfathomably good. But whereas Mezzanine and Heligoland have a cover to cover flow, some tracks on here don't quite stand the test of time
Massive Attack Heligoland
The kings of trip-hop released an excellent album last year and it didn't even make it on Sputnik's top 100 of 2010? "Paradise Circus," "Psyche," "Rush Minute" and "Atlas Air" are all phenomenal tracks on an album that doesn't have a weak point. Is it as good as Mezzanine? No, but will a trip-hop album ever be released that is?

Radiohead The King of Limbs
The optimistic tone of in rainbows, the cohesiveness of amnesiac, the experimentalism of hail to the thief taken in as new a direction as has been seen since kid a. Old timers hoping for something more like ok computer will be disappointed, but such a carefully constructed album could be the closest to true beauty that radiohead has ever come
Radiohead Street Spirit (Fade Out)
Easily the greatest Radiohead release in the pre Ok Computer era and one that goes far too unnoticed. The depth of 'Street Spirit', the brilliance of 'Talk Show Host' and 3 other solid tracks make this an excellent release and also make it perhaps the best starting point for someone looking to get into the band.
Red Hot Chili Peppers Californication
Red Hot Chili Peppers Mother's Milk
Red Hot Chili Peppers The Uplift Mofo Party Plan
Before he had to work his ass off to get the voice he currently has, Anthony Kiedis was afraid to sing. But he had a sick flow and rapped the truth on top of an innovative group of funk/punk badasses. This is the last album to feature Hillel Slovak on guitar before he died and Jack Irons on drums before he quit, but even with a change of personnel, this sounds more like the following LP, Mother's Milk, than the previous Freaky Styley. With tracks "Fight Like a Brave" and "Behind the Sun" leading the way, this is an album that I'm always up to listen to.
