needs more Richard Hell...

As much as I love Richard Hell, none of his albums are really essential. They are essential to me, seeing as I love his music, but not to everybody, and certainly not in the Alt/Indie Forum. Then again, that's jut my 2 cents.

The Good, the Bad, and the Queen - Self-titled?
Technically the band's unnamed but they're pretty good.
Quote by mynamesedson
I asked my son he said nothing but he just asked me he wants a psyachatrist (spelling?) Because he heard voices calling out his name. What a freak.

I nominate Grizzly Bear - Yellow House just because it's probably the best album of the past five years (and that's saying A LOT)

i tend to disagree. Arular was a very solid album.

here is my list of possible 2005 releases:
MIA - Arular
The National - Alligator
Animal Collective - Feels
Sufjan Stevens - Illinoise
LCD Soundsystem - s/t
Deerhoof - The Runners Four
The Hold Steady - Separation Sunday

I have no idea if any of these have been mentioned already, or if they're even on the original list, but I'd say:

Bloc Party - Bloc Party
65daysofstatic - The Fall Of Math
Weezer - The Blue Album
Idlewild - The Remote Part

that doesn't exist

Yep, 2005 is now open for debate.

Here are some to think about.

MIA - Arular
The National - Alligator
Animal Collective - Feels
Sufjan Stevens - Illinoise
LCD Soundsystem - s/t
Deerhoof - The Runners Four
The Hold Steady - Separation Sunday
Lou Barlow - Emoh
Camille - Le Fil
Orange Juice - The Glasgow School

Personally I wouldn't go for Sufjan or LCD as we already have 'Seven Swans' up, which in my opinion is superior to the rest of his work, and I just don't like LCD Soundsystem.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

Sorry, Kasabian will not make the list. Bloc Party possibly. Might have to do some kind of poll at some point.

How about Daft Punk? I know they're influential, but I don't know if they could be considered to have influenced alt/indie. Anyways, either Homework or Discovery would be great additions.

Though I like MIA, I don't like Arular. I do support the National and Animal Collective, and apparently I must check Emoh.
#110
na their not but ur talking about one album and highly evolved was a cracking album
and so was kasabians if ur talking over long periods of time then no

The problem I have with the Vines is that they wrote one really good single ('Get free') and I bought the album on hope that the rest would be good, then I hated the rest of the album so I feel they ripped me off. With their second album, again great single ('Ride'), just decided to stick with that though so have no idea about that album.

Like the suggestion of Daft Punk. 'Discovery' seemed to welcome through a bit more electronic influenced indie, but maybe I had just shut it out before that or am forgetting something?

you should try some commas and dots.

Discovery would be a very nice addition to the list

My suggestions (sorry if they've already been suggested I only read the first post and a few folowing it.)

Vashti Bunyan - Just Another Diamond Day (1970)
This album was a huge influence on Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom, Animal Collective (she even did an EP with them) and is often considered the first psych-folk album,

Belle & Sebastian – If You’re Feeling Sinister (1996)
This has probably already mention but I think it deserves to be on here for just being a really great album.

Board of Canada – Music Has the Right to Children (1998)
I think this is the best electronic album of all time.
