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 Probably the best rock album ever. Ziggy really sang...Nick Cave and the bad Seeds: Murder Ballads Killer lyrics that is surrounded by a hilareous sense of black humor. And fantastic musically too.Alice Cooper : Special Forces 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 Best rock album of the 90ties. God is in the TV.Iron Maiden: Iron Maiden 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 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 King's first genuine concept album and still one of the best concept albums ever. 18 is actually 9.Dead Kennedys: Frankenchrist The album that led to DK's end. Unusually melodic and experimental stuff from the punkrockers. Nina Hagen Band: Unbehagen Hagen's earliest records were masterpieces both musically and vocally. This album is awesome.Nekromantix: Hellbound Psychobilly at it's finest. Quite raw production but very great songs that rocks you. Adam and the Ants: Kings of the Wild Frontier The album that propelled Adam to the top. All bands should have 2 drummers.The Cure: Disintegration 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 Prince became Prince - The first (but not last) of his (many) best albums. Hubert Kah mit Kapelle: Ich Komme Neue Deutsche Welle ruled. And this album has always been my favourite from that era.Westworld: Where the Action is Beat box rock'n'roll for the Rockulator inside you.Björk: Debut Fantastic fresh and happy album. Unfortunately I think she went downhill from there. Depeche Mode: Violator I'm actually more a fan of Depeche Mode singles than albums. But this is one of their best albums.Dead or Alive: Youthquake The only interesting production by Stock, Aitken and Waterman. But it is very good indeed.Nitzer Ebb: That Total Age Ultimate electronic body music aggression. Fast beat your feet!Sigue Sigue Sputnik: Flaunt It 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 How does it feel to be down? Well there you have it. Low and even lower.Fiona Apple: When the Pawn Fiona makes great music. Unfortunately not so often. But this album is superb.Ani DiFranco: To the Teeth 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 N.W.A.'s finest rapper blew all competition away.Insane Clown Posse: The Great Milenko Can white men rap? Well these serial killers can and they are bloody hilareous too.
