    13 really? 13?

    Definitely in the bottom half of the Blur catalog. Though 'No Distance Left To Run' is pretty rad.

    Parklife is far and away considered their best record. Great Escape and Leisure are great as well.

    Blur - Parklife
    Foals - Total Life Forever
    Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Your Funeral, My Trial (but they're all good pretty much except for Nocturama)
    Beach House - Bloom
    Metric - Fantasies
    Sigur Ros - Takk
    Spiritualized - Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space (Songs in A&E is also brilliant)
    Dead Can Dance - Aion or Within The Realm of a Dying Sun

    13 is my favorite Blur album as well. Probably their weirdest and most musically accomplished, esp. the back half-- the stretch from "Battle" to "No Distance Left to Run" is better than anything they've done (IMO).

    Parklife and Great Escape are definitely Blur's best two.

    I would definitely not say Fantasies for Metric. Old World Underground , Where are You Know is my favorite. Both Live It Out and Grow Up and Blow Away are better than Fantasies IMO.

    While Substance is the best thing with the New Order name attached to it, it's a collection of singles, not a proper album.

    And don't listen to TallGuy, the critics, or anyone who tells you that You're Living All Over Me is the best Dinosaur Jr. album. Bug is the better listen for its flaws, not in spite of them.

    And El-P's best listen is still Company Flow - Funcrusher Plus. Aesop Rock is still Labor Days, although he's been consistently great.

    Red Hot Chili Peppers - Freaky Styley
    Ghost - Hypnotic Underworld (hahajkomg!!! It's really the only album they have, Opus Eponymous)
    Violent Femmes - Violent Femmes
    Lou Reed - Transformer
    Nick Cave - Tender Prey
    Grinderman - 2
    Dropkick Murphys - Do Or Die
    Social Distortion - Social Distortion

    The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses
    Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Fever To Tell
    Modest Mouse - The Moon And Antarctica (Agree, a near masterpiece, but LCW one of most overrated LPs of last 20 years...three great songs and a ton of slop)
    Grinderman - Take Your pick - I has better best songs and wicked humor (great best songs), II is a more consistent and more instrumentally impressive effort but as second cover implies, more menacing than funny.
    Beach House - Teen Dream
    Stars - Set Yourself On Fire
    Foals - Total Life Forever

    The Xx - The debut 10x better than follow up
    Sigur Ros - Takk
    Hot Chip - The Warning
    Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest
    Bat For Lashes - Fur and Gold
    Janelle Monae - The ArchAndroid II & III
    El-P - I'm partial to latest Cancer 4 Cure
    Franz Ferdinad - s/t debut

    RHCP - In minority here, but I love the 2006 double way more than Blood Sugar Sex Magic, just a JF showcase
    Nick Cave - Who knows, but for a 50 year old, his recent years have been incredibly productive, last release Dig Lazarus Dig was great, like it and Abatoir a lot more than Murder Ballads but his discography is vast.
    Vampire Weekend - The s/t debut
    Tame Impala - Lonerism is an incredibly forward looking approach on psychedelic music, but I find it really lacks momentum and am personally partial to Innerspeaker even though Lonerism is a much more unique effort and sonically amazing.
    The Gaslight Anthem - The '59 Sound but in honesty, this is one of those bands where every song truly does sound the same - one of the least impressive and unwarranted ask backs in recent memory - very average live act - which is surprising giving the Springsteeny earnestness of their songs.
    Thee Oh Sees - Tons of material, but I really liked last years Carrion Crawler/The Dream Double EP - two or three barn burners in there I hope to hear on the polo fields.
