If you are introducing someone to a genre, majority of the time you do go with safe choices to help ease them into it which are generally the most popular ones or critically acclaimed ones.

Yeh, although they can also have a tendency to be overrated. But what really do we mean by 'essential' here? Some of these albums may be essential to some people but not to others. Or do we really mean '5 Famous Indie Albums'.

I agree that essential can have different connotations - be it - essential to the person itself, for example and album that really opened the genre to you or perhaps essential or seen as ''important'' to the genre, i.e albums that set trends and sounds for bands and albums that came after it. I myself wrote albums that are essential to me in this thread, perhaps others wrote albums that are essential to the genre in some way. Perhaps it should be made clear what we're really discussing - I for one would love to discuss both.

And what a glorious post it was, an opinion so rarely voiced in this thread I really feel I have grasp on the indie genre. Good night sweet prince, and may your epitaph live on through the ages, "ITAOTS or GTFO".

And those that haven't been tried and tested much don't stand the test of time? No, I think it is more about what people know best and that tends to be famous stuff as that is what they have heard first and so have known longest (or just know at all), then they pass those names on to the next generation and so on.
