I love suggesting Gold because it is my favorite album...AND it has the most songs. I would definitely pick up both of the Love Is Hell EPs.

"Knight in shining Zubaz."

rem-automatic for the people (the last 2 songs get me...plus everybody hurts makes me cry when i'm already sad)

beck-sea change (man...if i want to just brood...this is the one)

me without you- [a-->b] life (for being more metal//harder rock than anything else i listen to...this has some super sad lyrics)

when i'm sad i like to either get it out via crying, or just brood in my problems for a while...so i listen to sad songs.

This is also my suggestion. It's a great record when you're feeling down. When I listen to it I hear somebody who's feeling even more depressed. In fact, Dylan sounds so depressed I get happy.

As for other great suggestions...

I get back to that later.

C ya!

Radiohead - lots of OK Computer, Street Spirit, How to Disappear Completely, Kid A, Fake Plastic Trees, Pyramid Song
Coldplay - A Rush of Blood to the Head album
AFI - Sing the Sorrow (especially the whole ...But Home Is Nowhere track, God Called In Sick Today
Tori Amos - Gold Dust, Northern Lad, Hey Jupiter, Putting the Damage On, most of Little Earthquakes
Tracy Chapman - New Beginning album, Fast Car
Manic Street Preachers - Door to the River
Placebo - Burger Queen, Without You I'm Nothing, Centrefolds, Lady of the Flowers, My Sweet Prince
REM - most of Out of Time

Soul Asylum. They are so depressing, but I probably indentify more with their lyrics than those of any other band.

R.E.M-Automatic for the people- When you need to wallow in your sadness a bit, This record is good, because it's melancholy but uplifting.

Lauryn Hill- The miseducation of...- When I feel resentful or if someone does you wrong, this album makes me confident that people will get what they deserve.

The Polyphonic spree-The beginning stages of.....: Good for cheering you up, but not good for when you you feel violent around happy people. The same goes for The Flaming Lips- Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots.

Garbage-Garbage: Good if you're angry and down.

That's my opinion anyway.

Yeah, I need to go out and get some Ryan Adams stuff too. I love everything I've heard of his so far. I watched MTV's making the video for So Alive and Ryan looks like he's crazy. But in a good way.

the cure at their most miserable is a stroke of pure genius

but the key to them is listening to their albums in full, at the end of Untitled on Disintegration listening to the mesmerising and oh-so-cold guitar solo, you feel all cleansed for some unknown reason, that there is suddenly a reason to live life again, even if you are a miserable sob

to wallow & cry, which eventually gets me over it:
Elbow - Asleep in the back
Nick Drake - pretty much everything
Neil Young
Damien Rice - O
The verve
Beth Orton - central reservation

to skip the wallowing stage:
Charlatans - wonderland (few things make me happier than a dancing tim burgess and a lemur imitation)
Chemical Brothers
Ed Harcourt
the frames
