Red Hots--The consensus would be Blood Sugar Sex Magik, but personally I've always preferred its predecessor Mother's Milk. A bit harder.

Flaming Lips--Have to go with The Soft Bulletin. An all-time classic album.

Sonic Youth--Don't listen to anyone who says Dirty. It's Daydream Nation, no contest.

Sleater-Kinney--I thought The Woods was last year's best album, but you could take One Beat as well, which is closer to the S-K "classic" sound.

Thievery Corporation--Would have to say The Mirror Conspiracy, but they're all pretty damned great and will give you a good primer for checking them out.

Ween--Tough call. My first instinct is to say Pure Guava, but the double live album Paining the Town Brown might be a good choice.

Wilco--I'm one of the few who won't say Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and suggest another double album, Being There. VERY little filler.

Death Cab For Cutie--my housemate is a huge fan and he swears by We Have The Facts and We're Voting Yes.

Common--Like Water For Chocolate. Pre-hippie Common. Amazing album.

Re: The Essential Lollapalooza Albums Thread

The Red Hot Chili Peppers - money's on BSSM, but I'd go with Californication still

Kanye West - I definitely think Late Registration was better than College Dropout

Wilco - take both Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and Being There, I can't get it down to one

the Shins - oh, inverted world

Death Cab For Cutie - tough one, but I'd say The Photo Album

the Raconteurs - only one record

Flaming Lips - gotta agree with Soft Bulletin

Broken Social Scene - You Forgot It In People (thanks lmj )

Secret Machines - STILL haven't listened to new record, but you can't beat Now Here Is Nowhere

Stars - maybe I'm in the minority, but I prefer Set Yourself On Fire to Heart

Iron & Wine - definitely Our Endless Numbered Day, but don't forget the Woman King EP
