""You never were a virgin kid, you were f---ed from the start." Even a celine dion album could warrant a place on this list with such lyrics as that. Bruce Springsteen+ The Clash + Alot of Alcohol+Civil War Text Book-Boredom= The Monitor. Have at it."
Ys
Ys
"Of all the albums I've listened to this century, Ys is one of the very very few I can call, with 100 percent conviction, a masterpiece. Ambitious in both lyricism and song structure as well as being just ridiculously enjoyable, which is a major feat for 5 songs of 9+ length. An new age astral weeks for Lovers of literature Top track: Emily, Only Skin, Cosmia."

"Very recent. But very very good release. Raw and really visceral innovative stuff. You know what, God probably wouldn't like this very much. Screw it. Top Track: The Cage."
The Band
The Band
"I love Levon Helm, but this WHOLE band was chock full of songwriting and musical genius. Even if Robbie was sort of a jerk. Top Track: The Unfaithful Servant. (Oh god, that song is so dam good!)"
Dopethrone

"I'm not an expert on metal, weed, or sludge. I technically am one of the least qualified people to talk about this genre next to my grandma. Saying that, I love this record and all the deliciously evil bass lines that come with it. More please. Top Track: Funeralopolis."
Dr. Octagonecologyst

"An insane album made by one very insane individual. That means its well worth listening to. Top Track: Real Raw"
Original Pirate Material

"A Bit Overrated? Yeah, there's too many pop country influences here for me,  but definitely one of the best vocal albums I've heard in the past few years. Adele's a great songwriter. Top Track: Rumour Has It"
Hospice
Hospice
"Yes, it's depressing, very depressing. But what do you expect from an album about the end of a relationship told through the metaphor of dying from illness? Love this. Top Track: Two"
Trans-Europe Express

"Electronica 101. Top Track: The Hall Of Mirrors."
Late Registration (Explicit Version)
Late Registration (Explicit Version)
"Kanye isn't a great rapper for his flow. More for his personality, great production, and those hilarious lyrical moments that he frequently has though not frequently enough. Those who hate his music for his personality miss the point. Only a giagantic ego can make music like this. Top Track: Heard em Say."
Doggystyle [Explicit]
Doggystyle [Explicit]
"West Coast Classic that above all else is just really really fun. People forget how funny a lyricist Snoop was. Top Track: Gin and Juice, Tha Shiznit"
Getz / Gilberto
Getz / Gilberto
"The hardest aspect of getting into Bossa Nova is moving past this album. Everything to love about the genre is here, but there IS more to love of BN then this. Top Track: Corcovado (Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars)"
The Joshua Tree (Remastered)
The Joshua Tree (Remastered)
"I almost hate putting this on here. For the longest time I deplored this group and never understood the appeal of Bono. Saying that, this album is good. Very Very Very Very good. Top Track: Red Hill Mining Town."
Exile On Main Street [Remastered]
Exile On Main Street [Remastered]
"No need to Explain this. Top Track: Let it Loose"
Real Life [Remastered & Expanded]
Real Life [Remastered & Expanded]
"I agree The word underrated is used too often,  but the fact that this album hardly ever gets mentioned with the other post-punk greats of its generation really burns me up. "Shot By Both Sides" and "Definitive Gaze" are two of the best songs I've ever heard. Top Track: Shot By Both Sides."
Oh, Inverted World
Oh, Inverted World
"An Indie Staple. For me tied with Chutes too Narrow as their best album. Top Track: Know Your Onion!"
Music Has The Right To Children
Music Has The Right To Children
"Still BOC's best record. Simple to describe music yet a hard to articulate aural experience. Nostalgic, grainy, and esoteric. Top Track: Sixtyten"
The Smile Sessions
The Smile Sessions
"Even if you've heard the Brian wilson version from 2004, this set is still well worth your time. It isn't complete as in "regular album" complete, but the loose ends of it in many ways add depth. Top Track: Vega-Tables."
Marquee Moon
Marquee Moon
"You'd be amazed how many people have never heard of or listened to this album. Top Track: Marquee Moon, Friction"
New York Dolls

"The bridge that led Rock and Roll to Punk. Top Track: Personality Crisis, Trash"

"Still Offensive, Still Angry, Still Relevant, and yeah Still Gangsta. Top Track: F--- Tha Police"
Innervisions (Remastered)
Innervisions (Remastered)
"Not as big on Stevie as most people. Really really talented, but I just wasn't as much of an admirer of Talking Book as others. It was good, very good, but just didn't get under my skin like this incredible album: A socially Consious voyage into inner-city America Top Track: Visions"
Lady In Satin
Lady In Satin
"Far from the crystal clear voice of her prime, Billie comes of as frail, raspy, woman full of pain in her final LP; a voice almost a metaphor for her fall into drugs. It's rough to hear but beautiful in its own sorrow ridden way. Top Track: I Get Along Without You Very Well."
Pure Ella
Pure Ella
"Everyone from music Critics to Opera Singers adore her, and over hundreds of singers  have tried to be her. But none will ever top her. This is a great introduction to Mrs. Ella. Top Track: Summertime"
Into the Woods
Into the Woods
"As Broadway composers go, Sondheim is up there as a favorite. Very intellectual stuff, and not always accessible but Into the Woods might be his most enjoyable.  Its got terrific performances from Bernadette Peters and Joanna Gleason. Top Track: Last Midnight"
Sunday in the Park With George
Sunday in the Park With George
"Experimental and bold musical production,  yet beautiful as well. Sondheim's most underrated work and again, Bernadaette Peters, Amazing. Top Track: Color and Light"
Will The Circle Be Unbroken
Will The Circle Be Unbroken
"All genres change over time, and it comes as both a blessing and and a curse for most, but for country with all of the new technologies and move to more polished production, I feel it has been nothing but bad. Here is country music at its most spiritual, authentic and life affirming, and it is everything today's country lacks. Top Track: Will the Circle Be Unbroken"

""IIII Havvvee A Liiitttlee Reeeddd Rooooossttaaa tooo laazzzeeyy tooo crrrowww faa daayyzz" I'm sorry did you want something? Top Track: I asked for water, she gave me Gasoline, You'll be mine."

Mecca And The Soul Brother
Mecca And The Soul Brother
"T.R.O.Y is one of the most beautiful songs of the 90s, but it's not the only gem here, ("Lots of lovin", "Return of the Mecca, "Wig Out", etc)  and frankly I find this album to be an underrated milestone of the Boom-Bap era. Top Track: They Reminisce over you."
Stankonia
Stankonia
"Outkast is one of those groups most people only know for a few catchy songs (Hey Ya,Ms. Jackson), and not as the group who put out 5 incredible, influential consistent, funkified hip-hop classics.It's always a toss between this and Aquemini.  Top Track: Stankonia (Stanklove)"
Bizarre Ride II [Explicit]
Bizarre Ride II [Explicit]
"Manic Jazz/Funk infused hip hop Album which was love at first listen for me.  Not paid as much attention to today as Tribe's or De La's albums, but more than deserving of it. Top Track: Soul Flower"
