Top 100 Albums: #100-90

100. Sunn O)))- Monoliths & Dimensons (2009)
Nihilism never sounded so beautiful.

99. Dead Can Dance- Within the Realm of A Dying ASun (1987)
Not as cohesive as a whole. But the second half is so good that it merits inclusion on the list.

98. Cryptopsy- None So Vile (1996)
"Go ahead and run. Run home and and cry to mama!"

97. Cat Stevens- Tea For Tillerman (1970)
Harold + Maude is carved somewhere on that tree.

96. Can- Tago Mago (1970)
Know your roots Radiohead fans.

95. Secret Chiefs 3- Book of Horizons (2004)
An alchemical rollercoaster of electicism and proficiency. A must for fans of Mr. Bungle.

94. Animal Collective- Merriweather Post Pavilion (2009)
It deserves the hype and attention it has received.
93. The Flaming Lips- Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots (2002)
Their follow up to Soft Bulletin is just as heavenly in its genre hopping consistency.

92. Genesis- Wind & Wuthering (1977)
Some people are pro-Gabriel. Other are pro-Collins. The truth is that the best years of Genesis belonged to the Steve Hackett era. Kicking off with Trespass in 1970 and bowing out with this gem. Although Patrick Bateman would strongly disagree.

91. Spacemen 3- The Perfect Presciption (1987)
Stoner music refined with a wandering coolness.

90. Robert Fripp- A Blessing of Tears (1995)
Fripp's soundscapes always existed as the soothing underpinnings of the King Crimson ouevre. Now he gets to fully explore them here.
