the beauty of this I suppose is that it is entirely your perception that makes the album a must have

I'm getting a little sick of the usual albums constantly being referred to, and while they are undoubtedly classic, I find that many of them are not directly relevant to the music that I am listening to, the music I love, or the music that has influenced me

I also get the impression that a bunch of people are looking back at past lists and repeating what they are saying, and also that the music that constantly gets referred to is very baby boomerish

so i am very keen to hear what people actually consider to be their must haves from their own point of view

endtroducing is definitely on my list too, and kid a is amazing....but ok computer would edge it I think, and three feet high set the tone.....killer

Cornelius - Point
Talking Heads - Remain In Light
Camille - Le Fil
Beck - Odelay
The Beta Band - The 3 EPs
Happy Mondays - Pills N' Thrills N' Bellyaches
Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique

Yeah, all these lists are personal but it's a great way to find out about records you don't know. If you see that somebody else likes x and y that you love then it's probably worth checking that z thing they listed that you haven't heard of....
