5's of mine that sput sleeps on
1Christoph De Babalon
If You're Into It, I'm Out Of It


drum n bass. This is perhaps my favorite modern electronic album. It's dark and brooding drum and bass with a very eerie and powerful vibe to it. Christoph blew the competition away so hard with this record that it's perhaps forever designated to being a looming monster in the corner that we just don't talk about.

Favorite track - Water
2Confuse
Nuclear Addicts


punk. This is my favorite punk album, it's everything I want out of punk and more. Catchy, spastic, memorable, very raw, it's just perfect imo. Perhaps the best Japanese band ever, they're punk gods that will live on forever.

Favorite track - Hate (Is It War?)
3Confuse
Stupid Life


punk. My other favorite punk album. It's still quite raw, but much more bouncy than Nuclear Addicts. Something about this band is just addicting to me. They're still as catchy as ever.

Favorite track - Stupid Life
4Dayglo Abortions
Feed Us A Fetus


punk. The best punk album to come out of Canada. This is quintessential down to every last bass note, it just has that right vibe that you don't hear anymore. It's stupid in-your-face silly filthy fun that takes shots at everything.

Favorite track - Don't have a fav on this one, I just listen to it all
5Dick Hyman
Moog - The Electric Eclectics Of Dick Hyman


electronic. Some very early electronic moog music that will take your mind into hyperspace, a must listen for any synth fan. Moogs have such a pleasing sound, and this is one of the best moog albums.

Favorite track - The Minotaur
6Electro Hippies
Play Fast Or Die


fast hardcore / grind. Early grindcore and one of the greatest ever. Love the album art on this. Sick dirty riffs and vocals. I really like the vocal style.

Favorite track - Acid Rain
7Extreme Noise Terror
The Peel Sessions '87 - '90


grind. This is probably the best peel session I've heard yet. They nailed every track. MURDER!!

Favorite track - Murder
8G.I.S.M.
M.A.N. (Military Affairs Neurotic)


idk. I'm not sure how to describe this album. It's a mixture of hardcore, thrash, and metal. Really great guitars, fascinating vocals, and just very interesting songs in general. This is truly a one-of-a-kind gem from Japan.

Favorite track - Frozen Dirt
9Gryphon
Gryphon


medieval prog. This is honestly a contender for my favorite album ever. The album art is 10/10. Every performance on every instrument is just a godsend. The Crumhorn, recorder, percussion, it's all mind blowing. I can't properly explain how much I adore 'Estampie'. There's nothing else out there like this and I'm just thankful that it exists.

Favorite track - Estampie
10Issa Bagayogo
Tassoumakan


world. I've put this in several lists before but it still only has my 5 and a 5 from potsy. Will you add to the 5 party? This album is the best thing I've heard from Africa. The mixture of folk, western stuff, and electronic is just flawless and timeless. This has held a special place in my heart for 14 years now although I have no idea what he's saying. Please try it.

Favorite track - Koroto, but Kalan Nege has come up in recent years as my other favorite
11Masayoshi Takanaka
An Insatiable High


jazz. Some of the tightest, funkiest groovy jazz I've heard from Japan. Masayoshi is a jazz guitarist. It's hard to not dance with this on. It's so damn funky.

Favorite track - Sexy Dance
12Malignant Eternal
Tarnet


black metal w/ some keys. I've had this in my lists before as well. One of the best bm albums ever and it only has 8 votes. Also, this has the best album cover of any bm album.

Favorite track - Into Twilight
13Oingo Boingo
Demo EP


new wave / post punk. This might be my favorite demo. If you know the band, you know what to expect. This is some of their best work by far.

Favorite track - Ain't This the Life
14T-Connection
Magic


disco / funk. This is my favorite disco album, and it lives up to the name 'Magic'. All tight grooves for the soul. This is a classic and it only has my vote, it's a shame. This is their first album, their other stuff is good too.

Favorite track - Disco Magic
15Teddy Pendergrass
TP


soul. Wow, this still only has my vote. What a crying shame. This is my favorite soul album. 'Love TKO' is one of the best songs ever sung, it hits so hard within the first few seconds. You might recognize Love TKO from the radio, and it's been sampled before. ' I Just Called To Say' is heartbreaking. Every song sets the standard of quality for soul.

Favorite track - I Just Called To Say
16The Peanut Butter Conspiracy
The Peanut Butter Conspiracy Is Spreading


psychedelic. Perhaps my favorite 60's psych album, but it's really hard to choose one. These guys were from my general area. They have a perfect sound in every aspect, the instruments and vocals are an inspiration.

Favorite track - Twice is Life
17Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan
Song Of The Second Moon


electronic. Without a doubt this will always reign king as the greatest electronic music ever made, never to be dethroned. This is some of the first electronic music, it's pure science and still fucking scary tbh.

Favorite track - Song Of The Second Moon or Moon Maid
18Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan
The Fascinating World Of Electronic Music


electronic. A comp of the earliest electronic music ever made, and it's still unmatched to this day in terms of innovation and sonic ingenuity. This makes modern electronic music sound like safe boring trash, it's still ahead of its time.

Favorite track - Too hard to pick
19Kaleidoscope (UK)
Tangerine Dream


psychedelic. This actually has a decent amount of votes at 30, but I still decided to include it because it deserves thousands. This is one of the best albums of the 60's and is another contender for my fav psych album. The guitar tone is just glorious, as are the vocal harmonies. I'm not sure why this album doesn't come up more.

Favorite Song - Dive into Yesterday (this song gives me chills every time)
20Cristina
Sleep It Off


no wave. A quirky, unique masterpiece of post punk, pop, new wave, post punk, no wave and more. This lovely album is an oddity that was probably a bit too creative to catch on with the general public at the time.

Favorite Track - What's A Girl To Do or Don't Mutilate My Mink
21Rose McDowall
Cut With The Cake Knife


synth pop / goth / post-punk. Do you like Strawberry Switchblade? Then you should check this out. It's on par with her Switchblade work. There isn't a slight shoegaze element like with Switchblade, but it still has a very similar sound. A little more Madonna-ish pop at times, but better.

Favorite Track - Tibet or Sixty Cowboys
22Jun Togawa
Tamahime-sama


pop / goth / synth pop / new wave. This is probably Jun Togawa's best work, and one of the best Japanese pop albums ever made. It's creepy and unique, and the music and lyrics are very dark and bizarre. It's so odd that this doesn't get more love. If you're into oddballs like Shiina Ringo, you would most likely dig this. It's a very creative album with fantastic vocals, and produced by Jun herself.

Favorite Track - 怒濤の恋愛

If you like this I would recommend another one of my 5's that has no votes, her sister Kyoko Togawa - Tears. Kyoko has lighter, catchy synth pop / new wave music, but a much darker personal story.
