There's just a handful that I listen to pretty regularly - New Gold Dream and a couple by The Chameleons - Script of the Bridge and What Does Anything Mean Basically. 

Brian Johnson did a turn with Muse on Sunday, they and he were great.

This one. It's great!

 

^ I love that album cover. Great track as well. B|

It was 25 years ago when I actually started buying albums. In early January 1992 I bought a CD ghetto blaster with single cassette deck. The first CD albums I bought were Seal, Michael Jackson - Dangerous and Shamen - Boss Drum. :$ I also bought the Prodigy Experience too at some point. I was still trying to fathom my musical tastes back then. I was just into chart music really and then got into Indie/Britpop in the mid 1990s. Sadly lost those albums in a burglary in February 1996 thanks to some delightful 'traveller' types. The did leave my 'Beach Boys - greatest hits' CD behind, so not all was lost!

I did buy 'Siamese Dream' by the Smashing Pumpkins in 1995. That album came out in 1993 at the same time my friends were worshipping Saint Kurt of Seattle but it took me 2 years to decide whether or not to splash the cash on it, One of the few albums I replaced after the burglary (and also SP's following album 'Mellon Collie & the Infinte Sadness') . So I guess that played every now and again after 22 years. This is the best track off the album imo:

No apologies for this one - it's a cracking pop album. Time-index linked to my favourite track

 

The album from which this comes. This actually brings tears to my eyes. From the film "Renaissance Man".

@Malthus what a good idea for a thread and 25 out of 10 for mentioning the Cult.

@DTMark Erasure: yes. 

Talking Heads - Fear of Music

Pink Floyd - everyfuckingthing

U2 - nofuckingthing

Probably this one stands out for me:

I was listening to Stigma by EMF in the car yesterday. Weirdly both dated yet somehow contemporary sounding.

 

I used to practice, in the room next to them, at Time Out, a rehearsal place in an old warehouse in Gloucester docks. 

It was really odd, hearing their music on the radio etc, after hearing it for so long through the walls at Time Out.
