Let's get this thing rolling...

I am going to pick my first 10 albums. Then everyone else will add ten. You can use the same artist, but you can't duplicate albums. You can dispute one of my picks, and it may be deleted or adjusted. But in the end, I am the moderater and have final say. Remember the only criterea here are that you feel these are great albums. They need have no cultural, popular, or musical signifigance other than your own. We will worry about order of rank later, but here we go:

1. The Clash - Combat Rock
2. The Cure - Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me
3. Radiohead - Kid A
4. The Smiths - Strangeways Here We Come
5. Morrissey - Viva Hate
6. Ian McColloch - Mysterio
7. The The - Dusk
8. They Might Be Giants - Lincoln
9. New Order - Technique
10. New Order - Movement

Pezda's picks:
63. Beatise Boys - Paul's Botique (Solid pick, despite being on every other top 100.)
62. Tracy Chapman - Tracy Chapman
61. Ray Charles - The Genius of Ray Charles (compilation)
60. Original Cast Recording - Rent (Makes me think you have been colluding with Red! This will not make the final cut. Just letting you know now.)
59. The Strokes - Room on Fire
58. 10,000 Maniacs - Blind Man's Zoo
57. Gorillaz - Gorillaz (Definitely the best cartoon zombie smian hip-hop alternative album ever!)
56. Police - Ghost in the Machine
55. Suzanne Vega - 99.9F
54. Matthew Sweet - Altered Beast (Assuming the olive drab cover. I know it makes no difference.)
53. Elvis Costello - This Years Model (Outstanding!)
52. Echo & the Bunnymen - Songs to learn and Sing (compilation)
51. The Smiths - Meat is Murder (If anyone else would like suggest the remainder of the Smiths proper albums, you could spare us all the trouble.)
50. Squeeze - Singles, 45's & Under (compilation)

New rule: These must be proper albums. No EP's. No compilations. Too easy to say "the best of." Though, in the case of Squeeze it almost seems like you have to make an exception.
