5. Brothers In Arms - Dire Straits
There is a really cool song from that album, can't remember the title, do remember listening to my dads copy years ago, it goes something like "Can't get no sleeves for my records, can't get no shoe laces for my shoes" 8)

Two classic albums right there- Bummed totally wipes the floor with Pills, Thrills and Bellyaches, I reckon.

Mine would be:

Junkyard- The Birthday Party
Surfer Rosa- The Pixies
Isnt Anything- My Bloody Valentine
Daydream Nation- Sonic Youth
Grotesque- The Fall
Psychocandy- Jesus and Mary Chain

Edit- Hang on, thats six. Or eight if you count the two I quoted from Sir Clive. This is why I dont usually do threads like these :?
