As has been pointed out...all these lists are different.

There is no way to accurately make a top 5...indie encompasses so many different types of bands you may as well ask "give me a top 5 albums to start out of nowhere". Noble effort, but I doubt this thread would be much use to a newbie.

Unless you guys start giving descriptions of each one. I'm sure someone coming in here would already know the style they are partial to, and that way the lists might be a bit more help.

Or they could see which ones come up most often and listen to those.

Leaving out obvious ones isn't really the point of the thread.
If you think
In An Aeroplane Over The Sea
Funeral and
For Emma, Forever Ago
are essential Indie albums, then so be it..

Even though they could just see what albums come up most and give them a listen. I did actually think people would tag a description along with each album.. Even a line would've been good.

Sure, but those albums have already been posted and will more than likely be posted multiple times. I'd consider the 5 I posted just as essential as those, plus then I'm not just reposting something that's already been listed 3-4 times.

Fair enough, I kind of made the thread because I thought people would post why the album they chose is more essential than an 'obvious album'

Say, I want to know why your 5 albums are more essential than NMH (even though they're an obvious one, I don't think you can get more essential than that)

Nah, too much like hard work

...I'll probably edit one or two in out of sheer boredom later though.

I've seen people on this site go out of their way to write a 5 paragraph rant about certain topics, and when I say 'people' I mean booboo.

Don't get wrong, I do that sometimes myself. Just wasn't really feeling the vibes when I posted my list
