Gene's user-rec extravaganza [50-100 votes part]

So I recently went around asking some users for recs of album under 100 but above 50 ratings. And they delivered big. But you can still rec up to two more. I initially wanted to finish up my own sub-100 votes list and then post after I had already listened to the recs, but I just couldn't wait, so let's dive in.
