Rank, which I had on vinyl but couldn't find on CD here in good old Brisvegas. The Smiths are revealed as a (gasp) Rawk'n'Roll Band!! Check out that zingy chorussed guitar on The Queen Is Dead, and that crazy wah wah. Nice one.
Histoire de Melody Nelson. Love that snappy, bouncy trebly bass all the way through Cargo Culte, not to mention the dirty old man himself mumbling his spiel, and the choir, and the way the whole thing builds, and the bass starts to play chords and get all narrow and clangy... The lads from Air basically ripped this off wholesale, didn't they? No matter, I still love Moon Safari.
Also, The Execution of All Things, because I heard that song Spectacular Views on last.fm and really liked it, it sort of reminds of me of The Breeders circa Last Splash. We don't get much of that "US College Indie Rock" round these parts, so I had never really heard of them before I got on this site.
