Like who, out of interest?

R.E.M. should definitely be on that list, for example.

Correct me if I'm wrong, because I'm not an R.E.M fan, but according to Wikipedia they didn't release an album until 1983? Which puts them two years too late for this list.

Exactly. This list is for the year 1981 and 1981 only. Plus, I'm not sure R.E.M. have been a big influence on our particular scene but I would definitely consider including a record like Fables Of The Reconstruction for 1985.


The Shape of Punk to Come, perhaps?

It will definitely be on the 1998 list, just like Songs To Fan The Flames Of Discontent for 1996.

Rush's Moving Pictures is the most glaring omission. Cool idea though. Going to bring up a lot of debate (read: complaining), I'm sure.

25 years ago - 1986 :

http://www.alternativnews.com/2011/0...-ans-1986.html

Bad Brains - I Against I
Big Black - Atomizer
Cro-Mags - The Age Of Quarrel
Dag Nasty - Can I Say
Depeche Mode - Black Celebration
Metallica - Master Of Puppets
Midnight Oil - Diesel And Dust
Slayer - Reign In Blood
The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead
Youth Of Today - Break Down The Walls


Honorable mention:

Dead Kennedys - Bedtime For Democracy
Descendents - Enjoy!
Killing Joke - Brighter Than A Thousand Suns
Queen - A Kind Of Magic
R.E.M. - Lifes Rich Pageant
Sonic Youth - Evol
Uniform Choice - Screaming For Change



People are gonna bitch about this one haha...
Yes, I put Queen aside because I think the 80's were not a really influential period for the band (and both critics and fans were being let down by every album they would put out at that time).
Dead Ken, Killing Joke, R.E.M. and Sonic are all highly influential bands but not with those particular releases, again in my humble opinion.


Ah, yeah fair enough. Ah I'll look forward to reading that list, when you post it, make sure to quote me on here to let me know, I'm intrigued to read it.

There you go!

All great choices, I'm afraid to say I'm not familiar with Big Black, so I'll make sure I check them out. Here are a few of my suggestions of albums that didn't make the cut

Run DMC - Raising Hell
Bon Jovi - Slippery When Wet
Iron Maiden - Somewhere In Time
Megadeth - Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?
Husker Du - Candy Apple Grey

Like I said though, your picks were great, and I can't argue with any of them.

Another good list, can't really argue with any of the inclusions there.

A few other great albums from 91:

Ribbed - NOFX
Spiderland - Slint
Gish - Smashing Pumpkins
1039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours - Green Day (Technically a compilation I suppose...)
Metallica/The Black Album - Metallica
Use Your Illusion - Guns N Roses
Screamadelica - Primal Scream
Loveless - My Bloody Valentine

Don't know if you were planning on including hip hop but De La Soul Is Dead and The Low End Theory were both released that year.

Thanks again for the feedback! Loveless is on the list, you probably missed it.
About the hip-hop, I am a big rap fan but those lists are supposed to be records that influenced our scene (i.e. alternative/emo/punk/hardcore/metal) the most so I guess there won't be many hip-hop records on there, if any at all. Just like there won't be much pop or electronic stuff either.

Good call on A Tribe Called Quest, one of the best hip-hop albums of all time.

Ah, yeah must have missed Loveless somehow. Oops...

Fair enough about the hip-hop, it makes sense to exclude certain genres or else there'd be too many albums to include ha. I'm looking forward to reading the next list, keep it up!
