|An absurdly good album list|
Leaves Turn Inside You
Oh wow, this is classic noisy post-hardcore heaven.
|2||The Dismemberment Plan|
Emergency & I
|3||Shudder To Think|
Pony Express Record
Crazy album full of creative ideas.
|6||At the Drive-In|
Relationship of Command
I always liked this album but over time i ADORE and LOVE it. It has this special sound which is raw and has so much energy.
|7||...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead|

The Glow Pt. 2
This album is a joyful lesson about how lo-fi indie is done right. Epic and very touching record.
Slowly becoming the best slowcore album ever? Stratosphere: Yes.
|12||The Life and Times|
Alt-rock indie masterpiece which in the end beats my Shiner favorite The Egg.
Is This It
Why not listing one of the first two Strokes albums here? No rock record ever reaches the level of music-played-lazy-and-cool like this one.
|14||My Bloody Valentine|
m b v could be listed here as well but Loveless is the mother of all shoegaze and reverb indie music.
Just ice cold love for this record. It is all about riffs and maybe the best sound ever recorded.
Simply amazing indie.
This is the soundtrack of your nicest dream. Album grows and grows and is suddenly one of your most well rounded piece of music in your collection ever.
My favorite post-punk record ever because it is so varied and...ehm...good.
Ween did their best with Quebec: laid back rocking and dark. This is THE varied alternative rock allrounder.
The Moon & Antarctica
An album like a bridge from Indie to Alternative and Emo. Dislike the cover art...
|21||Neutral Milk Hotel|
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
Strange masterpiece which combines indie with jazz and kind of a 60ies vibe. Never boring und great musicianship.
|23||The Afghan Whigs|
The most timeless and perfect experimental rock album.
The Raging Sun
Downward Is Heavenward
You can find peace in these wall of sound between Deftones and Smashing Pumpkins...and a lot of hidden details.
Progressive post-hardcore space rock which has to grow on you. But it did over the years.
|28||The Mars Volta|
De-Loused in the Comatorium
This was ahead of its time and it was never copied. No more words needed.
|29||New End Original|
The one of a kind adult version of perfect solid emo rock music.
This Is The Way To Rule
So underrated. This should be as big as La Dispute, Hot Water Music or all other bands which are considered as emotional and punk and post hardcore. This album is the adult version of this genre.
THE post hardcore or post metal album that never ever gets boring. It is a flight through highly interesting and creative songs. And in the end...kollapse.
|32||Queens of the Stone Age|
Songs for the Deaf
One of the coolest rock records ever made. Sound is so tight.
Attack on Memory
United By Fate
Joy as an Act of Resistance
|36||The Smashing Pumpkins|
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
Frame & Canvas
|39||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven
I Was Young, It Was Dark
The Narcotic Story
Koi No Yokan
I am not the youngest guy and it is ridiculous that i love this one more than ever. So much energy and emotion. A lot of bands tried to be as good as Thursday on this one but they all had failed.
My favorite record of Swans. Listen to it as loud as you can. So mighty.
Best "rock" album when it comes to repetition and hypnotism. Could hear that endless forever and i would die happy.
|50||Magnolia Electric Co|
Magnolia Electric Co
|51||Have a Nice Life|
The Album that is interesting and beautiful forever.
Some might say this is overrated, but why? Leviathan is a totally relentless genre mix. Sludge, Hardcore, Metal, Prog...Big plus is, that it is not an epic album anyways. The songs are tight and sharp and the drums giving you permanent fire.
Punkrock becoming progressive.
Lifted or The Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground
Rock For Light
A Crow Looked At Me
The most depressive piece of music? Maybe. But in the end it is beautiful.
This albums is growing forever. Is it possible that pop music goes deep? Very difficult, but Titanic Rising does that.
|62||Anna von Hausswolff|
This album is THE best of modern drone heavy goth female singing music ever made.
A I A: Alien Observer
Possibly my favorite musical out-of-this-world experience. Transcendental.
The Magic Place
Perfection if it comes to haunting and magical music.
The Sacrificial Code
Eerie organ music done right. Mystical and beautiful tones.
Electronic sounds as art which works if you listen carefully.
Quintessential singer-songwriter folk.
The mother of all post rock records?
Permanent Waves (40th Anniversary)
Master of Reality
The heavy music allrounder.
|72||Boards of Canada|
In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country
Traced in Air
Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory
Think of the band what you want. This record is crazy.
Words That Go Unspoken...
Strange production, strange song structures, strange version of progressive death metal. But therefore the most unique and addictive one. I will never ever be bored by Vessels.
Chaotic annoying music done perfectly.
A Senile Animal
This is how a hard rocking rock album should sound like.
|82||Today Is the Day|
Sadness Will Prevail
Massive slap of anti-music. It is long and you probably won't reach its end but it is so much fun to get beaten up by this record.
That Within Blood Ill-Tempered
An album that should not be forgotten just because it once had been ahead ot its time.
A Sun That Never Sets
An album like lava you cannot fight.
From Mars to Sirius
This album was defining the post metal genre.
Tom G. Warrior knows the formula which is not a secret. I am wondering why not many bands listen to this guy. Play your metal dark, simple and effective. Don't blow up your metal with lots of notes.
Reign in Blood
No words needed. This album is the king of metal.
Rust in Peace
Totally slaying and carthatic death metal fest with songs without endings. Want a remaster of this one.
These 3 songs are the ice coldest winter black metal i know. And it is not norwegian second wave. Treble is so high that it will hurt your ears and you have to listen closely to find all the things of the music.
|93||The Ruins of Beverast|
Rain Upon the Impure
Band always delivered on a very high level. This album stood out as the bands uncut gem and for me it is their best. Production is raw, harsh and cold. A lot of details are hidden behind high treble and ambient noise. Music is genre best atmospheric black metal variety with a lot of doom in it.
|94||Lurker Of Chalice|
Lurker Of Chalice
Unique sounding darkness. This is my perfect version of black metal. The cult of this album will never die.
Timeless classic screamo classic. Maybe the genres best album ever? Not sure, but for sure it should be mentioned a way more often in the screamo classic lists.
|96||Suis La Lune|
Ok...THIS is the best screamo record ever made. Every song is so emotional that you want to cry and shout your heart out loud.
The Moon Is a Dead World
|101||The Mountain Goats|
The Sunset Tree
