Madlib and MF Doom - Madvillain (2004)

At a time when hip-hop in many ways has made a mockery of itself, and when its premier acts are neither creative nor conscious, MF Doom and Madlib have delivered an undisputed classic. Madvillainy is a rare hip-hop "concept" album filled with frenetic beats and rhymes that are both avant garde and street-level at the same time. It is amazing to hear their reinvention of the beat and rhyme on tracks like "Rhinestone Cowboy," "Figaro," "Accordion," and the instant classic "All Caps." Many of the tracks are short, and the interludes sometimes make little sense. It is telling that many of the artists leading a revolution within hip-hop are its elders, like De La Soul, Common, and (hopefully) Digable Planets and A Tribe Called Quest. Madvillain sports 2 prolific veterans of the rap game who have managed to make hip-hop challenging and relevant again. In my humble opinion, Madvillainy is the most important hip-hop album of the last decade and one of the best albums of the last few years, period. Pick it up. --Amazon User Review

Nirvana - Nevermind (1991)

If Nevermind's sound is familiar now, it's only because thousands of rock records that followed it were trying very hard to cop its style. It tears out of the speakers like a cannonball, from the punk-turbo-charged riff of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" onward, magnifying and distilling the wounded rage of 15 years of the rock underground into a single impassioned roar. Few albums have occupied the cultural consciousness like this one; of its 12 songs, roughly 10 are now standards. The record's historical weight can make it hard to hear now with fresh ears, but the monumental urgency of Kurt Cobain's screams is still shocking. --Douglas Wolk

Manu Chao - Radio Bemba Sound System (2002)

Anyone who's caught Manu Chao and his band Radio Bemba Sound System at one of their live gigs will testify that the Parisian troubadour sure knows how to throw a party. This live album draws on reggae, salsa, and Latin pop songs from Chao's first two excellent solo albums (Clandestino and Proxima Estación: Esperanza) as well as joyous gems from his time leading the more punk-tinged Mano Negra. While the styles vary as often as the languages (Chao flits from Spanish to English to French as he translates his life as a global nomad into his music), the common thread is a sense of vitality and hope. From the uplifting reggae of "Bienvenida a Tijuana" to the African pop and salsa of "Casa Babylon," this album showcases Chao's role as the pied piper of multiculturalism, leading his crowd on a (literally) merry dance. And it's the crowd that really makes these 29 tracks come into their own. You can almost picture the mob waving, cheering, blowing whistles, shouting into megaphones, and generally having the wildest time this side of Rio Mardi Gras. A great flashback for those who have seen Chao live and a perfect introduction for recent converts. --Ian Watson

Deltron - Deltron 3030 (2000)

Hip-hop confabulations don't come much more forward-thinking than this. Working from solid atomic principles, Deltron 3030 takes one producer, one MC, and one DJ and throws them beyond Futurama. Dan the Automator (one of the founders of the Handsome Boy Modeling School and administrator of Dr. Octagon's porno hospital) reinvents himself as the Cantankerous Captain Aptos and teams up with Deltron Zero (a.k.a. Hieroglyphics crew member Del tha Funky Homosapien) and Skiznod the Boy Wonder (bucky turntablist Kid Koala). Between the radio ads for future-funked, rap jams, and camouflaged cameos (by the likes of Prince Paul, a castrato Damon Albarn, MC Paul Barman and his Upper West Side doppelgänger Sean Lennon), the Deltron crew advise you to upgrade your brain to avoid getting sucked into the time virus. ("Ugrade your gray matter," they chant, "'cause one day it may matter.") The thematic opener, "3030," sounds like a beat-driven David Lean movie that slipped into the DJ's fingers with 31st-century rhythm stutters and scratches. Automator ping-pongs loops as rousing choral parts swell with space pride. "Things You Can Do" riffs off mod rock while a harpsichord hack and Sean Lennon drops feature on the sickly sweet mental apocalypse of "Memory Loss." Over its 21 tracks, Deltron 3030 erases the errors of this rap era in favor of hip-hop's future fathers. --Chris Campion

Balkan Beats (2005)

When the first grenades were fired in the disintegrating Yugoslavia of the early 90s, a young Bosnian named Robert Soko came to Berlin to start a new life.He didn't care if his neighbour was Bosnian, Serbian, or Croatian. Robert began to throw parties with like-minded emigrants and played the old yugo hits - a symbol of long gone, peaceful Yugoslavia.Vital survival training of emigrantstrying to regain a lost past, their own history, and identity. After over 10 years, the BalkanBeats parties are "legenda". Twice a month, BalkanBeats are blasting in Berlin's Mudd Club: Gypsy grooves, tribal beats and Balkan ska. BalkanBeats became an international cult affair. Now, Soko plays New York and L.A. on a regular basis. BalkanBeats are highly addictive - it's in their savage energy, the colourful, fresh timbre, and passion. The inexhaustible diversity stems from Slavonic, Oriental, Jewish traditions, and from the culture of the Roma people. The music's natural openness enables an easy and exciting transfer to modern times. Fresh Balkan bands pick up those traditions and process them into an individual cultural amalgam. Artists such as Let 3 and Magnifico spoof their own Balkan roots, fuse them with rock, ska, or metal, and nevertheless pay respect. Fanfare Ciocarlia, Karandila, and the Boban Marković Orkestar radicalize classical Balkan brass music with maximum virtuoso skill, thus renewing an old tradition to something sounding fresh and exciting. Many of the bands are inspired by completely different traditions. Mahala Ra Banda throw you out of the Bucharest slums into the heat of New Orleans. BalkanBeats presents the greatest hits from the Mudd Club on a CD. Traditional and urban sounds - diverse, explosive, and just over the top.

Aphex Twin - Richard D. James Album (1996)

Richard D. James is the third and best Aphex Twin's album. As the title indicates, James has turned inward for inspiration, painting aural pictures of real and imagined scenes from his west country childhood. "Goongumpas" is a fanciful, playful tune that wouldn't sound out of place on the soundtrack to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. As his adventures with the family upright indicate, James was a bit of a devil even as a child. "Beetles" is the sound of a boy frying bugs on the sidewalk with a magnifying glass, and "To Cure a Weakling Child" shows flashes of the sort of sadism found only on preschool playgrounds. If you still doubt that young Richard developed early on, the romantic Nino Rota-style strings on "Girl/Boy Song" are just made for passionate seductions, and the tune appears in three mixes, each one hot and hornier than the one before.
The raucous undercurrents of even his calmest tunes and the sources of many of his most common sounds are what link James to the rock tradition. With Richard D. James, the artist solidifies his position as an electronic music mastermind who has earned a spot beside such well-respected innovators--whether or not he's destined for stardom. --Jim Derogatis

Justice - Cross (2007)

The French electro duo Justice, part of Ed Banger's Paris crew of techno punks, started making noise four years ago, moving Converse-clad indie-kid feet with their hit remix of Simian's "Never Be Alone." They don't bother with intricate touches that would get lost in compression - they go straight for the jugular, which makes them declasse for dance aesthetes but gives them plenty of bonehead sonic punch. "D.A.N.C.E." has a children's choir chanting the title, over Chic bass and harshly hissing strings. "Genesis," "DVNO" and "Waters of Nazareth" deliver thrills a la classic Eurotrash like Army of Lovers or Sheila and B. Devotion. With loads of melodrama and not a moment of subtlety, Justice define the new-jacques swing.

Daft Punk - Alive (2007)

This to me is probably the best live cd I have heard. All the songs we know and love are mixed perfectly. Daft Punk really knows how to put on a show. I do believe that if you are new to daft punk you shouldn’t pick up this cd. The great part of this cd is to be surprised and see how well they mix the the songs. Knowing all these songs by heart and hearing them in a whole new way is what makes this cd amazing. If you are new to daft punk you may not see the greatness. For any Daft Punk fan do yourself a favor and buy this cd! (review by a fan from

David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust (1972)

After flirting with heavy guitar rock ("The Man Who Sold the World") and lighter pop ("Hunky Dory"), Bowie found middle ground on Ziggy Stardust. The creation of the Ziggy Stardust persona would live on well after Bowie shed the alien skin, marking the first rock concept album by a sexually ambiguous, artistically bent musician who confounded critics at every turn. A blend of dramatic strings, swaggering saxophones, jagged guitars, and theatrical arrangements, the album's darker rock numbers like "It Ain't Easy," "Moonage Daydream," "Ziggy Stardust," and the irresistible "Suffragette City," still serve as solid excursions into the future (then and now) of rock. The buoyant "Hang on to Yourself" and the dreamy "Star" offer hints of optimism in Ziggy's bleak world. The dramatic "Rock 'n' Roll Suicide" and the image-heavy "Star Man" ("he'd like to come and meet us but thinks he'd blow our minds!") no doubt provided plenty of stage-worthy moments when Ziggy toured in the '70s, but years later they still thrill. Bowie blew our minds! --Lorry Fleming

Wu-Tang Clan - 8 Diagrams (2008)

Wu-Tang has not released an album since 2001's Iron Flag, but getting them together has proven the right move, as 8 Diagrams is a new classic album in an age where hip-hop is supposedly dead. If anyone could be relied on to bring classical skill back into an album, it is without a doubt the Clan - they have deep history in rap, which is thoroughly evident in 8 Diagrams yet doesn't overshadow the amount of new sound they have also infused.
Rolling Stone : 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Terrific mix of classic Clan grime and enough new tricks to justify Inspectah Deck's claim that 'Wu-Tang keep it fresh like Tupperware.'"

Amon Tobin - Supermodified (2000)

Supermodified is still rife with sophisticated Brazilian lounge-jazz samples and unpredictable drum'n'bass skitterings, this time augmented with more overt nods to hip-hop and Aphex Twin-style sympho-electronica.
Feeding off Latin rhythms, downtempo beats, and wildly adventurous musical jumbles, Tobin's manic bliss never allows the songs to wander, working a sense of method into a sea of crazy atmospheres. The result is focused, enticing, and fascinating -Matthew Cooke

Yann Tiersen - Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain OST (2001)

Heavily influenced by traditional French music, the music is performed by strings, accordion, piano and a small number of other instruments. Tiersen performes the majority of the instruments himself, from the piano and vibraphone to the banjo and toy piano. Strings are used in a couple of cues, but the orchestral sound is mostly very small throughout the entire score. There are a lot of solo performances by the piano and the accordion, and with cues dominated by lively waltzes this is a score that without doubt makes the listener happy. After having seen the film, I left the cinema with a big smile and every listen to this score leaves me with an equally large smile and a warm heart.
