grunge stuff would fit better in Modern Rock.

i'm actually going to go through and update this tomorrow. i'll toss in some things from 2006 and 2007 that have been suggested, amongst some older albums that should probably be included. i may color code things by genre too.

anything need removing?

color coding and adding will have to wait because i hit the character limit. perhaps a Alt/Indie Essentials 3.0 is in order?

As great as one of those albums is, I don't think that any of them are indie enough for the list.



Just curious, which album on my list is the good one?
#325
I really want you to put Brother, Sister by mewithoutYou on that list haha. Faultless album and completely on it's own in terms of what it sounds like. It's basically perfect.

Two things I think need to be added to this list:

1. Kasabian - Kasabian

2. A Storm In Heaven - The Verve (tied with Lovless as best shoegaze album ever as far as I'm concerned)

I'm not sure how this works but assuming we just recommend some albums we see as essentials I'd definately consider adding

built to spill- perfect from now on, and there's nothing wrong with love

iron and wine- the creek drank the cradle

the postal service- give up should probably be there

wolf parade- apologies to the queen mary

and I'd say jim croce- you dont mess around with jim deserves consideration
and maybe bruce springsteen - The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle too
Anatomy Anatomy
Whale Blue Review

Brian Eno's Ambient 1:Music for Airports should probably be on here

i'm sort of surprised at the lack of hip hop on this list. of course you'll say that hip hop isn't alternative or indie, but in that case i think we need to get some terms straight. what, precisely, is supposed to go on this list? you're excluding grunge? bands like nirvana were hugely influential to a lot of indie bands today, not to mention "grunge" is a stupid term and their music should fall under alternative anyway. and by that logic you'd have to exclude the beatles or vu because they fall under classic rock.

anyway, pretty arbitrary list ya got goin on here.

I'm pretty sure "Merriweather Post Pavilion" by Animal Collective will need to be added to that list soon enough.

Maybe it's not old enough yet, but trust me, it will be there eventually.

And Fleet Foxes self titled, definitely.

i'm in pretty much in full agreement. when i actually get around to restructuring things, there will likely bit a bit more diversity/accuracy/something to the thing. at the very least, i'll color code genres.

not if it is up to me! which it is! plus, there is a two year waiting precedent before any album is eligible.

Domestica is great to good, for the most part, but i don't know if i'd call anything Cursive has done essential.

Temporarily Closed While I Mull Over Essentials 3.0

feel free to PM me suggestions for 2008
