90.Bleed American-Jimmy Eat World

This album kicks ass. Yes it's been done before, and yes it's been done better, but when you're listening to it, none of that matters. It really shows off what JEW are capable of, and is easily their best work. I never thought of them as a very good band until I heard this album, they were just okay, if you feel the same way, get this album, it will change your opinion completley.
I think you mean Clarity. Good list so far, especially considering your age. I just turned 15 so it's nice to know that I'm not the youngest one here .

I knew it was a bad idea...
I would've picked Overkill if I had to pick a studio album.

My favourite Motorhead album is Bomber with Overkill a close second. Nice to see them included though.

This is a little longwinded but I haven't checked this thread out before now.

That Wale mixtape is something I have seen before and thought it sounded at least a little interesting. I may have to check it out.

Gotta love some Motorhead too. I wouldnt know what to claim my favourite record was though. I have the huge boxset which I tend to listen to most of the time but quite a few albums on CD or vinyl I've picked up over the years. It's all good.

I have The Charlatans record, I have that one and something else but never really got into them.I may have to try again because I have seen them live a good few years ago and they were very tight.

Im a sucker for ambient music too and the Ulrich Schnauss album sounds interesting. Ill be checking that out for sure.

What I had heard of CSS I didnt like but I'm thinking of checking that out too given it seems to have a few fans here. Plus Lets Make Love and Listen To Death From Above is arguably the best song title ever.

I dont want to really mention your age as it must start to get a little annoying, it happens a lot on here but I dont think I know a 13 year old who listens to anything other than the Mama Mia soundtrack and Girls Aloud so I'm enjoying this list.

84.Straight Outta Compton-N.W.A

I was trying to get into more rap, and I already had the 2pac and Biggie albums. I decided I really liked the old skool stuff and decided I'd try a classic. What a great decision that was? This album really shaped my taste in hip-hop, and that's because it's so great. Combining great background beats which were pretty awesome for that time plus some interestingly contreversial lyrics, and even though a lot of times it just sounded like the were stringing cuss words together, but that's okay because sometimes that's all great music is.
Highlights: Straight Outta Compton, Parental Discretion iz Advised, I Ain't The 1

83.American Football-American Football

At a time I was obsessed with Algernon Cadwallader(they'll come up later in the list), and I wanted to find other bands like them, this is what I got through last.fm. They're not really the same at all, but this is a great freaking album. It's straight alternative, with a little bit of emo and indie thrown in there for good measure. They're a very talented band and their instrumentation really surpassed my excpectations. The only reason this is so low is because Ihaven't actually listened to it that much, but it needs to be included. I reccomend this album to anyone who likes emo or indie music because you'll definatley hear it in here.
Highlights: The Summer Ends, Honestly, I'll See You When We're Both Not So Emotional
82.We Love You-Semi Precious Weapons

I'll admit it, I came across this ban watching MTV. That should not discourage people from listening to it. This is glam/garage rock at it's best. Their frontman, dubbed "The Bisexual Giant" has one of the most unique voices I've ever heard, and it carries throughout the whole album, plus it has sme of the best bass playing in an album that's come out in the last few years. There's great party tracks, and ballads that you just want to sit down and sing aong to, or belt out in the shower. Definatley check this out.
Highights: Semi Precious Weapons, Jesus, Time Jones
81.Fur and Gold-Bat for Lashes

Bat For Lashes is one of the best female vocalists evar. Period. She can belt out or whisper, both are all over this album, and it always sounds great. I don't have much else to say about this album, you have to listen to it to understand the originality she puts in to here music. PM's are welcome.
Highlights: Trophy, Sad Eyes, Sarah

80.Illuminate-Lydia

I'm sure I've talked about this band before on here, but they're just that great. This is one of the many great album I found on my brother's iTunes. Very ambient, very indie. Definatley dac music. It's extemely soothing stuff with out being all post-rock. The light co-ed vocals throughout the album add to the extemely calming effect of the album. Great for listening to at night, when trying to fall asleep, not to say it's boring by any means though.
Highlights:A fine Evening For a Rogue, Hospital, I Woke Up Near The Sea

79.Alright, Still-Lily Allen

I'm into my fair share of female vocalists, and thoug ha lot of it is indie stuff, some of my guiltier pleasures would consist of pop phenom's like Lily Allen. I don't see what's not to like about a popstar wiht a little bite. Though he rmusic at first seems straight up bubblegum, upon further listening one could find that Allen definatley has some fight to her. Sometimes it is even downright hilarious that her charming, girly melodies are riddeled with such devilishly innapropriate lyrics. A great find for anyone who just likes fun music.
Highlights:Smile, Everything's Just Wonderful, Knock Em' Out

78.American Water-Silver Jews

NO first listen, I found this album intolerabley boring. The guy's monotone voice is definatley not what I want to hear allthe time. But sometimes I just want to chil and listen to music that I can sing along to without looking stupid. An album me and my friends play a lout when we're just hanging out. Not really something to an physical activity with, but unlike my original assumption, by no means boring. Plus it has some of the best bass grooves I've heard.
Highlights:Random Rules, Blue Arrangements, Wild Kindness

77.Hot Fuss-The Killers

One of the first band's I ever liked tha twasn't green day-esque, The Killers wil lalways be one of my nostalgia bands. Almost every song no this album brings back memories. From jamming to "Mr. Brightside" when I thought about my former crush, Megan, to "All These Things I've Done" helping me through the sad times. I'm not sure what this album is classified as, probably alternative which I would agree with as the guitar hooks are very reminiscent of bands liek the acadmey is, but also fused with vocals and melodies that are heavily influenced by Interpol and such. One of the only albums, that's typically considered "juvenile rock" that I've seen othe rMBers listen to, and if you check this out you'll understand why.
Highlights:Mr. Brightside, Andy you're a star, All tHese things That I've Done

Very interesting list so far and I wonder where it's going. I sure like Radiohead's "The Bends". I like their older albums over their new ones. I have to agree on the Fratellis album though. Saw them live as well last year and I wasn't impressed at all. Keep em coming though!
