I just bought something yesterday that's been on my wish list for years:

Urban Hymns by The Verve

I love it so much already I can hardly stand it.

After briefly reading over this thread I think that my list is going to stand out a little from the rest. I’m not going to bother to break things up into unknowns or knowns because different people are exposed to different music. Also, please excuse my capital letters, I am typing this in MS and the red lines annoy me. Trust me, I do in fact hate capital letters.

In no particular order:

Stone Temple Pilots – Purple
alt.rock
An absolute classic of the 90s hard rock scene. I don’t care what you think about Velvet Revolver, because this album is the best thing Scott Weiland ever did. (His solo album is quite interesting though.)
Highlights include: Vasoline, Interstate Love Song, and Big Empty

Ours – Distorted Lullabies
goth.alt.rock
Gnecco’s voice is a perverted combination of Jeff Buckley, Marilyn Manson, Bono, and Thom Yorke. Dark and mysterious rock’n’roll.
Highlights include: Fallen Souls, Sometimes, and Here Is The Light

Jeff Buckley – Grace
alt.rock
Wow. Just wow. It’s too bad that Jeff died so young.
Highlights include: Last Goodbye, Grace, and Hallelujah

Marilyn Manson – Mechanical Animals
alt.rock
Don’t laugh. It’s a great album. Manson takes a left turn after Antichrist Superstar and turns out a very unique album.
Highlights include: Great Big White World, The Speed of Pain, and Coma White

Tool – Aenima
alt.metal
A masterpiece of alternative rock, pure and simple. MJK is one of the best vocalists and most intriguing lyricists around.
Highlights include: 46 and 2, Eulogy, and Aenema

Guster – Keep It Together
alt.pop
What pop rock ought to be. The band adds a member, expands its instrumentation, and delivers. Look for their new album in the spring of 2006.
Highlights include: Diane, Come Downstairs And Say Hello, and I Hope Tomorrow Is Like Today

Jimmy Eat World – Futures
alt.rock.emo haha
I hated Bleed American but JEW totally won me over with this album. Great songs and great production. One of the best albums I’ve heard in a long time.
Highlights include: Kill, Polaris, and 23

Peter Gabriel – So
alt.pop.elec
I don’t really know what to say about this one. A total classic from the 80s. Everyone should own this album.
Highlights include: Red Rain, That Voice Again, In Your Eyes

Third Eye Blind – Out Of The Vein
alt.rock
You probably remember them for such hits as Semi-Charmed Life and Deep Inside Of You, but the band’s most recent effort is by far its best to date. Catchy alternative rock never sounded so good.
Highlights include: Faster, Danger, and My Hit And Run

Toad The Wet Sprocket – Dulcinea
alt.rock
Ah Toad, a fond memory of the early 90s. Dulcinea is their best effort in my opinion and is a wonderful addition to any music library.
Highlights include: Fly From Heaven, Windmills, and Stupid

I’m having second thoughts about a lot of what I included in this list so I’m going to hurry up and post this before I start arguing with myself. I may not be an indie-hipster but there are some good albums on this list that I don’t think anyone has mentioned.

nice.

i hadn't thought about toad in years, until you brought it up in the other thread. i actually bought 'dulcinea' when it first came out. i believe 'windmills' was the song i liked on it as well. i hate to say, i have no idea where that cd ended up.

nice to see you included interstate love song, peter gabriel's 'so' , and you know i'm a sucker for 'futures'.

and i'm still working on hearing guster, i swear!

i'm glad i earned a thumbs up from you, my love. i think my list is a little more mainstream than the others here. i purposely left out the classics as well (beatles, stones, zep).

you would be doing yourself a favor to go dig up dulcinea. what a great album! i love glen phillips.
also liz, i really think you would like Ours. i don't know why but it's something i can picture you enjoying. check out a song or two if you can - realize, sometimes, here is the light, and leaves are all good introductions. they're a band i just got into again recently after letting their 2 albums collect dust on the shelves. i love when that happens.

the list was pretty hard to do. here is a little addendum (did i spell that right?):

pearl jam - yield
r.e.m. - monster
superdrag - last call for vitriol
eminem - the eminem show
nine inch nails - the fragile
a perfect circle - 13th step
red hot chili peppers - blood sugar sex magik

lol, it's hard to stop!

i'm off to go listen to the sigur ros leak.

Mainstream:

Queen: A Night At The Opera. 1975.

Yes. It has "Bohemian Rhapsody." Yes. It has "You're My Best Friend." Those 2 tracks are reason enough for any self respecting rock fan to own this album, but wait, there's more! "'39" is an acoustic folksy romp with Brian May on vocals. "Death On Two Legs (Dedicated To...)" is classic Queen. "The Prophet's Song" is 8+ minutes of rock, with an extented vocal bridge that border on insane. "Love Of My Life" is a beautiful piano ballad, that became a concert staple. "Seaside Rendezvous" is Quen in ragtime mode. No other rock record made covers this much ground. Musical precision, passion, melody up the wha-zoo. Why doesn't everyone have this record? The world would be a better place.

Neil Young, Harvest. 1972.
Harvest might be the perfect album. I really can't give this album a propper review cause I've been listening to it since I was born. Dad loves it. "Heart Of Gold", "Alabama", "Old Man", "Out On A Weekend", Harvest." You probably already have this album. And if you don't, why? You can usually get it for $9.99.

Left Of Center:

The Verve- A Northern Soul. 1995.

The first record showed so much promise (A Storm In Heaven, 1993.) And this one delivered on it. Song structures were more deliberate, but the noise was still there. Lots of noise. The acoustic ballad "On You Own" was the first single off this album, and really showcased the band as a songwriting unit. The opening track from the album, "A New Decade", 3 chords never sounded this good. Screaming guitars. "No Knock On My Door" is more of the same good stuff. "This Is Music" follows the same route. Forceful, grooving. "A Norther Soul" sees a retun to more psychedelic territory from album #1. And "History" is a pleading acoustic ballad that foreshadowed what was to come on the next record.



...more later

Sounds like you already have a large collection, and I honestly haven't heard a lot of newer stuff (or some older for that matter). Many of these bands are all foreign to me So while I will leave out my obvious choices (Black Crowes, Midnight Oil, Elvis Costello, Audioslave), I just remembered an older indy title that I really liked, and may have to pull out of the closet:
Sugar - Copper Blue

I originally bought it for the song 'Helpless', but I really enjoyed the whole CD (Bob Mould's band, formerly of Husker Du)

oh, and Traffic - Low Spark of High Healed Boys
