The albums of your life  

Shamelessly stolen from here but, face it, you bums are lucky to have me.

Anyway, it's simple: pick an album for each year you've been alive. If you participated in the albums of the decade threads, this'll be easier for you I guess. Also easier if you're relatively young and awesome, like myself.

Rules: No ties, no best-ofs.

Anyway:

1984: The Smiths
1985: New Order - Lowlife*
1986: The Smiths - The Queen is Dead
1987: The Pogues - If I Should Fall From Grace With God
1988: Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation
1989: New Order - Technique
1990: Janes Addiction - Ritual de lo Habitual
1991: My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
1992: Manic Street Preachers - Generation Terrorists
1993: Autechre - Incunabula
1994: Manic Street Preachers - The Holy Bible
1995: Radiohead - The Bends
1996: Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Murder Ballads -
1997: Radiohead - OK Computer
1998: Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea*
1999: Flaming Lips - The Soft Bulletin
2000: Radiohead - Kid A
2001: Ladytron - 604
2002: Ladytron - Light & Magic
2003: Belle & Sebastian - Dear Catastrophe Waitress
2004: Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus
2005: Boards of Canada - The Campfire Headphase
2006: Ladytron - Witching Hour
2007: LCD Soundsystem: Sound of Silver*
2008: Ladytron - Velocifero

The * denotes album of the decade.

This list kind of makes me feel embarrassingly white, with Fishscale (2006), Ready to Die (1994) and The Black Album (2003) unfortunately missing the cut. Also disappointed I couldn't fit more IDM on there, with Autechre's Incunabula and Boards of Canada's 2005 missive the only representatives (and the latter being my least favourite of the band's albums). Honourable mentions in that department go to: Telefon Tel Aviv for A Map of What is Effortless in 2004, Aphex Twin for Richard D. James in 1996 and BoC's Music Has the Right to Children from 1998.

Have fun.

1994: Notorious B.I.G. - Ready to Die
1995: Pulp - Different Class
1996: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Murder Ballads

1998: Smashing Pumpkins - Adore (Call me crazy, but I never saw this as a subpar effort.)
1999: Magnetic Fields - 69 Love Songs
2000: Black Box Recorder - The Facts of Life
2001: Jay-Z - Blueprint
2002: Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
2003: John Cale - Hobosapiens

2005: Antony and the Johnsons - I Am a Bird Now
2006: The Knife - Silent Shout
2007: The National - Boxer
2008: Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend

There. As I suspected, Nick Cave reigns supreme. The inclusion of two Tom Waits albums on the list has probably a lot to do with my girlfriend. While I've been a casual fan for some years, nowadays the exposure is more or less constant.

I don't want to sound gay or nothing... new [re: RabbitFighter]  

but that's a pretty kick arse list. The Waterboys are those Whole of the Moon guys, right? Agreed on The Smashing Pumpkins too, I bought Adore as a 13 year old and bloody loved it, though haven't listened to it for a few years now.

Happy to be born in the Year of Ziggy (Bowie's breakthrough). From 1981, albums started to mean something but this list is mostly from the point of view of today. The mid 90s is especially difficult due to fierce competitors and a personal peak in music interest:

1972 - Bowie: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust

1973 - Pink Floyd: Darkside of the Moon

1974 - Bowie: Diamond Dogs

1975 - Bob Dylan: Blood on the Tracks

1976 - Bowie: Station to Station

1977 - Bowie: Low

1978 - Kate Bush: The Kick Inside

1979 - Pink Floyd: The Wall

1980 - Bowie: Scary Monsters

1981 - Psychedelic Furs: Talk, Talk, Talk

1982 - Peter Gabriel: Security

1983 - Bowie: Let's Dance

1984 - U2: The Unforgettable Fire

1985 - The Pogues: Rum, Sodomy and the Lash

1986 - Peter Gabriel: So

1987 - The Pogues: If I Should Fall From Grace With God

1988 - U2: Rattle and Hum

1989 - The Pixies: Doolittle

1990 - Nick Cave: The Good Son

1991 - Tori Amos: Little Earthquakes

1992 - Peter Gabriel: Us

1993 - U2: Zooropa

1994 - Morrissey: Vauxhal and I

1995 - Bowie: 1.Outside

1996 - Tori Amos: Boys for Pele

1997 - Radiohead: OK Computer

1998 - Billy Bragg and Wilco: Mermaid Avenue

1999 - Moby: Play

2000 - Radiohead: Kid A

2001 - Radiohead: Amnesiac

2002 - Wilco: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

2003 - Des De Moore and Russel Churney: Darkness and Disgrace

2004 - Darren Hanlon: Little Chills

2005 - Jens Lekman: Oh, You're So Silent Jens

2006 - Dappled Cities: Granddance

2007 - Wilco: Sky Blue Sky

2008 - more than likely, the next Darren Hanlon album.

In reply to:

1988: The Waterboys - Fisherman's Blues (is this controversial?)


Not at all. Great album from a once brilliant band. "This Is The Sea" is Mike Scott's masterpiece but "The Fisherman's Blues" is indeed the Waterboys album that means the most to me for personal reasons. It was an integral part of a thrilling phase of my life back then.

Infidel, the fact that you're 17ish starts to make life make so much more sense to me.

Also, I'm sorry to be if one to tell you this but, you're young and you've still got time to change... anyway, you know REM? They really, really, really suck
