    Registered Users Posts: 3,312 mr_angry

    Following on from the "Moderator" thread, I thought it might be interesting to have people list their top 5 indie albums in a High Fidelity-style. Word of mouth is always the best way to find new music, eh?

    Even after my post on the original thread, I found myself questioning my list, and I've actually revised it since last night. So, without further adieu:

    1. Mansun - Six
    2. Garbage - Version 2.0
    3. Placebo - Without You I'm Nothing
    4. Nada Surf - High Low
    5. Interpol - Antics

    Lets hope I stick to this one a bit longer... :eek:


  • Way too hard to do a top of all time, but ill give you my top 5 of the moment.

    1. Rilo Kiley - More Adventurous
    2. Bright Eyes - I'm Wide Awake It's Morning
    3. The Arcade Fire - Funeral
    4. Camera Obscura - Underachievers Please Try Harder
    5. Death Cab For Cutie - Transatlantism

    I usually go through a phase of just listening to a certain bunch of albums religously, and at the moment these are them.

  • 1. Weezer - Pinkerton
    2. Biffy Clyro - The Vertigo of Bliss
    3. Saves The Day - Stay What You Are
    4. Jimmy Eat World - Bleed American

  • Because my last list wasn't avant garde enough:

    1. Einstuerzende Neubauten - Haus der Luege
    2. Throbbing Gristle - 20 Jazz Funk Greats
    3. The Hafler Trio - The Sea Org
    4. Swans - The Burning World
    5. Rolf Harris - The Best of Rolf Harris

    The shins - Oh inverted world
    Rilo kiley - more adventurous
    Joanna newsom - The Milk Eyed Mender

    Amazing list there, Cremo!

    Can't pick a Top 5.... i'd regret it 5 minutes later and constantly keep changing it! :D

    I'd definantly have Counting Crows "August And Everything After" in there though! My absolute favourite album EVER!

  • yeh it's a really hard thing to do, i just picked them really as they had the most impact on me and they are all albums that you can listen to and be shocked at the fact that you've just listened to a whole album and that you didn't realise it.

    they are also the sort of albums you could just pick up in any mood and listen to them.

  • Radiohead - The bends
    Radiohead - Ok Computer
    Radiohead - Kid A
    Manics - Everything Must Go
    Placebo - Without You I'm Nothing

  • Ill try a double ended one (oo er missus)

    At the moment
    Polyphonic Spree - Together We're Heavy
    Willy Mason - Where Humans Eat
    Bright Eyes - Im wide awake its morning
    Ryan Adams - 29/Cold Roses
    DJ Format - Music for the mature B Boy

    All time classics (though this list will prob change everyday)
    Neil Young - After the goldrush
    The who - who's next
    Zepplin - zep 2
    The sex pistols - never mind the bollocks
    the replacements - let it be

  • Radiohead - Ok Computer
