In no particular order...

1. Elvis Costello: My Aim is True
A few years after I started getting serious about music, I got an issue of Q magazine with a huge list of "essential" punk albums (Inflammable Material, The Clash, Singles Going Steady...) and, amongst all the scrunched up faces and tough guy poses, there was this jazzy cover with a dude holding a guitar like a gun. It didn't look very "punk" to my barely teenage self, still to properly comprehend the meaning of the term, but it stuck with me. A number of years later, I took a chance on the album, as I had with so many from the list and others like it. I'm glad I waited because my maturing palette instantly fell in love with every swingin', romantic note of this pop masterpiece. Not only did Declan McManus show me that restraint and melodies can trump the mightiest of chops, he destroyed that niggling voice in my head that it ain't punk to write about girls (Aaaaaaaaaaaaaalisooooooooonnn....) It does sound 34 years old and yet it doesn't sound 34 years old. Diverse, charming, evergreen.


2. Weezer: Weezer (Blue Album)
Still the quirky alt-pop benchmark. This album, which I didn't like at first because it wasn't 10 "Buddy Hollys" (what can I say, I was very particular in high school) soon became the first album I habitually listened to in its entirety. There's not a doubt in my mind it's still the album I've listened to most. Wry nerd fuzz rock par excellence.


3. Sugar: Copper Blue
Bob Mould basically invented modern alternative guitar playing and Copper Blue is the sound of the maestro perfecting the art. It's no exaggeration to say it's an awe-inspiring collection of chugging power chords, prickly arpeggios, and stratospheric harmonies. The deceptively simple lyrics and songwriting work beautifully whether it's been a good day or a bad year. Being a great "breakup album" is one thing, but it's quite another to be both a strong breakup and "love is all around" album. It's no coincidence this is the only vinyl I've ever bought.


4. The Afghan Whigs: Black Love
Booze. Broads. Bullets. This is the soundtrack to the greatest gangster movie never made; and that's precisely why you've got to listen to it the whole way through to get the full effect. It's less a concept album than it is an aural noir epic with its own narrative, right down to the bookend train "entrance/exit". Greg Dulli's impossibly cool growls elevate the potentially pompous to the truly magnificent. To hear the soul (literal and figurative) of this record is to truly appreciate just how empty so much music, especially in the rock bracket, really is.


5. Japandroids: Post-Nothing
Two Canadian gentlemen who sound like a Death Star blowing up inside another Death Star, Japandroids are probably what you would get if My Bloody Valentine jammed with the punk kids in the garage down the street. A refreshingly honest, manifesto-free riffstorm. Best served: LOUD and repeatedly.

Weezer's rhapsody in Blue was on there until I couldn't agree with myself on it or Pinkerton for inclusion.

Nice list, Bobby. And a 'Droids shoutout too. OHYEAAAAAHOHYEAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH

When they go back into the last "Bulls on Parade" at the end I get goose bumps everytime. That doesn't happen much anymore.

I'm with you, up until "Butterfly" begins.

I know it merits inclusion thematically, but gahtdamn, Rivers.

I've decided that "What Went Wrong with Weezer" is most definitely the departure of Matt Sharp. Sure, the bass playing has been covered competently, but Sharp brought a distinct sense of whimsy and fun to Rivers' obnoxious self loathing and nostalgia (don't get me wrong, self loathing is a time honored part of rock and roll, but Sharp's high vocals and screamed callbacks seemed to take River's mooning for being a highschooler from obnoxious to endearing.)

From what I remember, Mikey - the Green Album Sweater guy, was really really crazy.

And it's obvious I think that Cuomo needs an editor, that guy was probably also Matt Sharp. Sucks for him that he hitched his trailer to The Rentals (he didn't think Rivers was going to come back to the band after he went back to college), and it really sucks for Weezer fans, too.

I remember Mikey and the story that he had been committed to an asylum at one point.

Rivers really does need someone to call him on his shit, but he's sadly gone the way of many artists before him in becoming so insular that that is nearly impossible now.

Nice list, Bobby. And a 'Droids shoutout too. OHYEAAAAAHOHYEAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH
Thanks, mate! The 'Droids album is far and away the most recent inclusion, but I knew it belonged here because I gave it marathon repeat listens for weeks after I first got it and I still go back fairly regularly.

I'm loving these lists so far, people. Plenty of choices I support (The 'Mats, natch', G 'n' R, Pumpkins) Spotify shall be consulted for those I'm unfamiliar with.

I always thought he was great... and a suave gentleman for wearing that Barcelona top in the "El Scorcho" video, too.

Even making a top 10 is tough...

1- The Tea Party - The Edges of Twilight
The album that influenced me the most. It's a shame that the band never got big in the US (too early?), but that album defined my teenage years and the early 20's.

2- The National - Boxer
If the The Tea Party are my 20's, The National are my 30s. Easily the best rock band you barely heard of, these guys are superior musicians and outstanding performers. So far, their 3 last albums are classics and always on top 10 of nearly every critics, but Boxer takes the cake for me as that album that's perfect to listen to on an evening, with a glass of scotch in my hand.

3- Dead Can Dance - Toward The Within
Sort of a best of, it's a live album from one of the most influencial band of the 80's-90's. I always listen to DCD, or the solo albums of Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard (aka the best female vocalist ever).

4- VNV Nation- Empire
That one band that managed to infuse dancable music with deep lyrics. Still lvoe these guys, able to turn an electronic show that should technically be live karaoke into an event.

5- Sigur Ros - Takk
Kinda similar to DCD, Sigur Ros is able to move me while singing into a non-existence language (no, it's not Icelandic!). Orchestral, Takk is post-rock at it's best. Hoppipola is hope personified (see: the Children of Men trailer)

6- Radiohead - Kid A
7- Mumford and Sons- Sigh No More
8- New Order - Substance
9- Interpol - Turn On the Bright Lights
10- Iron Maiden - The Number of The Beast

it wouldn't be a MARTIN LIST without the Tea Party. No complaints from me of course...I love that album.

And HELL YES on the Iron Maiden love. It's a toss up between 'The Number of the Beast' and 'Piece of Mind', but I give the edge to Number.

For me Number is the best metal album ever. More so than Metallica's Master of Puppets, by a small margin.

And yeah Matt, me and TTP is like you and Rush, but The National might be my number one over time. Pure bliss.. And Mumford's stock might also rise over time.

I remember seeing the Pumpkins live. They blew out the sound system on the intro to "Bullet With Butterfly Wings". When things got reset they restarted and played it the exact same. At the time I really enjoyed myself but looking back I realize it really wasn't a very good concert. But Fountains of Wayne opened (it was when their first album hit, on D'arcy and James' label) and they were really entertaining.

Here's my pedestrian list, which would mostly be completely different if you asked me on another day, kind of like a "favorite movies" list-

1. Before These Crowded Streets- Dave Matthews Band. No surprise. "Under the Table..." probably got more play back from me back in the day but I have to skip a coupls songs on that one these days. BTCS was crafted as a continuous suite with interludes connecting the songs and it still stands up, even if the opener has been overplayed to. death. live.

2. Earthling- David Bowie. Swap out "Seven Years in Tibet" for "Law" and I completely agree with Rob.

3. Animals- Pink Floyd. Really, this could just be a disc with only "Dogs" and I'd still put it here. Spent many an hour listening to this album instead of my History of US Politics professor in college.

4. Fizzy, Fuzzy, Big and Buzzy- The Refreshments. So much more than the "Jean-Luc Picard" song. It sucks that addiction ripped the band apart after only two albums. Roger CLyne and the Peacemakers are alright but it's not the same.

5. Rubber Soul- The Beatles. Probably too easy to list a Beatles record but I love the hell out of this one. Discovered it years after Sgt. Pepper and was like "man, what".
