25 albums I would take with me to a galaxy far far way
Re-messed with: 2007-03-24.

I have given myself a task: Go through your records collection and find the 25 albums that means the most to you. Pick a maximum of one album per artist/band and no greatest hits compilations allowed. Here they are in no particular order.

David Bowie: The rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars [1972]

Probably the best rock album ever. Ziggy really sang...

Nick Cave and the bad Seeds: Murder Ballads [1996]

Killer lyrics that is surrounded by a hilareous sense of black humor. And fantastic musically too.

Alice Cooper : Special Forces [1981]

Perhaps a strange choice from Alice's catalogue but it's the first I heard and the one I've always loved the most.

Marilyn Manson: Mechanical Animals [1998]

Best rock album of the 90ties. God is in the TV.

Iron Maiden: Iron Maiden [1980]

The punky feeling combined with a new fresh heavy energy. Listen to

"The Phantom of the Opera" and say "These guys ain't going to make it"? Yeah, right...

Motörhead: Kiss of Death [2006]

It's been in my MP3 player for almost a year now...and I'm still singing along. Probably the best and most consistent Motörhead album ever!?

King Diamond: Abigail [1987]

King's first genuine concept album and still one of the best concept albums ever. 18 is actually 9.

Dead Kennedys: Frankenchrist [1985]

The album that led to DK's end. Unusually melodic and experimental stuff from the punkrockers.

Nina Hagen Band: Unbehagen [1979]

Hagen's earliest records were masterpieces both musically and vocally. This album is awesome.

Nekromantix: Hellbound [1989]

Psychobilly at it's finest. Quite raw production but very great songs that rocks you.

Adam and the Ants: Kings of the Wild Frontier [1980]

The album that propelled Adam to the top. All bands should have 2 drummers.

The Cure: Disintegration [1989]

Outstanding lyrics that captures many a thought of mine. One of my all-time favourites. (if not this one then pick: "kiss me kiss me kiss me".)

Prince: Dirty Mind [1980]

Prince became Prince - The first (but not last) of his (many) best albums.

Hubert Kah mit Kapelle: Ich Komme [1982]

Neue Deutsche Welle ruled. And this album has always been my favourite from that era.

Westworld: Where the Action is [1987]

Beat box rock'n'roll for the Rockulator inside you.

Björk: Debut [1993]

Fantastic fresh and happy album. Unfortunately I think she went downhill from there.

Depeche Mode: Violator [1990]

I'm actually more a fan of Depeche Mode singles than albums. But this is one of their best albums.

Dead or Alive: Youthquake [1985]

The only interesting production by Stock, Aitken and Waterman. But it is very good indeed.

Nitzer Ebb: That Total Age [1987]

Ultimate electronic body music aggression. Fast beat your feet!

Sigue Sigue Sputnik: Flaunt It [1986]

The Gods of Electronic Rock'n'Roll. It still sounds fantastic. The music press hated it. Well, fuck the music press.

Nine Inch Nails: The Downward Spiral [1994]

How does it feel to be down? Well there you have it. Low and even lower.

Fiona Apple: When the Pawn [1999]

Fiona makes great music. Unfortunately not so often. But this album is superb.

Ani DiFranco: To the Teeth [1999]

Ani has made more albums than most artists. Not all of them are good. But this one is. Possibly her best.

Eazy-E: It's On [1993]

N.W.A.'s finest rapper blew all competition away.

Insane Clown Posse: The Great Milenko [1997]

Can white men rap? Well these serial killers can and they are bloody hilareous too.
