I think that the popularity of songs like Clocks and Mr. Brightside will guarantee that those albums will at least be remembered. Also, Origin of Symmetry definately has music cred. I forget where, but it was voted one of the best albums of all time. And the riff for Plug In Baby was voted the best of all time (again, I forget where).

Despite the fact that Showbiz beats it <.<

Plug In Baby was #8 in some guitar magazine, I don't think it should be that high but it is a great riff.

Which reminds me, I seem to have lost every Spiritualized album sans We Are Floating in Space, must get back on that...
Drug addiction wasn't why the band broke up, but it did contribute towards it. I'm pretty sure it was the birth of Spiritualized. Peirce had covered "Anyway You Want Me" by the Troggs, which Kember had wanted to cover for years and that was the final straw.

Interpol- Turn On the Bright Lights (2002)
Post punk revival at its finest.

Both Gorillaz albums
An orgasmic collision of genres, courtsey of Damon Albarn.

LCD Soundsystem- Sound of Silver (2007)
One of the best (if not the best) dance punk records of the decade.

Fixed

I'd say Takk from Sigur Ros will be fairly iconic in the future. It's hard to say what band will be remembered at the front of the post rock movement but at this point I'd give it to Sigur Ros. Takk isn't my favorite from them but among listeners it's usually the most popular and very approachable. The band itself is also a great story being from Iceland and all so that would probably add to the 'classic' appeal.

I have to concur with Turn On The Bright Lights, i think Is This It? will be seen as a classic too, although TOTBL is better

Kayo Dot - Choirs of the Eye

Boredoms - Vision Creation Newsun

^^^
Two releases very unpredictable in nature, but still fairly accessible.

Venetian Snares - Rossz csillag alatt született
Not a huge fan, but I already see this getting a lot of praise.

Then there are a few metal releases as well that could be considered a classic, but honestly, many metalheads now a days are so full of themselves. The music isn't l337 or underground enough for them. Basically, they are more after power chords, blast beats or how 'br00tal/undergound' their music.

A unilateral work of genius by another one of my favorite songwriters, Jason Pierce. This is certainly no Spacemen 3 album. It's thick, a masterpiece in sonic production, but it still has incredible aesthetic appeal as well in the poignant lyrical themes.

The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots (2002)
The Flaming Lips have evolved over the last score of years to become one of the quirkiest group of individuals, and this album is a summary work of everything they've accomplished, from psychedelia to space rock. Few records can live up to this work's genius.
I agree with these two.

I'd add:

The Strokes - Is This It
The Shins - Chutes Too Narrow
The Fiery Furnaces - Blueberry Boat

Madvillainy, as far as underground hip hop goes it was a pretty huge release, and I really see esteem for it growing. I think it will be remembered for a while.

Return to Cookie Mountain, especially if TV on the Radio last for a while longer and garner even more attention.
