Best 3 'melancholy' albums

Occasionally feel-good music just does not hit the mark and I listen to some 'melancholy' music from my student days for a change.

My Top three are:

() Stina Nordenstam - And She Closed Her Eyes
This still sounds amazing to me even after ten years

() The Sundays - Reading,Writing And Arithmetic

() The Smiths - The World Won't Listen

I've always liked melancholy music, so much of what I have fits that description. One I particularly like (although I haven't listened to it all that much lately) is Ian McCulloch's Candleland.
