Gee that's hard. Indie is such a deceptively large genre. For a noob i'd say

Stone Roses -S/t
Pixies - Doolittle
Jesus And Mary Chain - Pyschocandy
The La's - s/t
Blur - Parklife

All predictable yet accessible choices.
'Said do you feel it? Do you feel it when you TOUCH ME?. THERE'S A FIRE! THERE'S A FIRE!' The Stooges. Dirt.

I'd say:

The Smiths - s/t
Arcade Fire - Funeral
Radiohead - Amnesiac or OK
Belle & Sebastian - Tigermilk/DCW/If you're feeling sinister
NMH - An Aereoplane over the sea (but that's so obvious)
The Postal Service - Sleeping in (Has to be one of the albums I have listened to most in my life)

This was a tough one. So many great albums to choose from. For the moment, here's my 5.

Replacements - Let It Be
Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation
Pavement - Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain
Sebadoh - Bake Sale
MinuteMen - Double Nickels On The Dime

I'm sure I'll want to edit this list before too long. It was hard not to include:

Guided By Voices - Bee Thousand
Elliott Smith - Either/Or
Dinosaur Jr - You're Living All Over Me
Archers Of Loaf - Icky Mettle
Husker Du - New Day Rising

and so many more...

after a hard day of nothin' much at all
Summer's passed, it's too late to cut the grass
There ain't much to rake anyway in the fall

In no particular order, but I am still pretty sure that these are the five I'd include:

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - I See A Darkness
Elliott Smith - Either/Or
Bright Eyes - Lifted, Or The Story Is In the Soil
Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
The Smiths - The Smiths

It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
Perhaps they're better left unsung

Very 'safe' (in listing well known albums) lists. I suppose when someone says essential people think it must be famous singers or groups who have received a lot of praise generally.
