Ok, I don't know if this thread will tick people off or not. Im just looking for people's top 5 album recommendations for me, as in essential/classic listening. Please dont recommend Radiohead or The Pixies (as I know some of you might) as I am already into them. I do listen to a decent amount of Alt/ Indie, but I'm curious to find out what you people would recommend for me as must haves.

There is poetry in despair.
Jane's Addiction
Smashing Pumpkins
Infectious Grooves (Side band for Suicidal Tendencies)
That's all I can think up right now.
At the Drive-In
Cap'N Jazz
or you want albums?
Just look under those
artist...theres more too.
But I don't want to give away my secrets.
College. ... ? . !!
