...which I own (thus narrowing the choices considerably). Choices are in no particular order.
1. Radiohead - O.K. Computer (never gets old).
2. Beth Orton - Central Reservation (that voice!).
3. Vigilantes of Love - Welcome to Struggleville (lyrically unmatched).
4. Flaming Lips - Yoshimi vs. the Pink Robots (weird but good).
5. Emmy Lou Harris - Red Dirt Girl (actually don't own this one, but if you want my list to have more integrity, you know what to do).
1. Coldplay - both albums (I'm not ashamed to like them, there's a reason they're popular).
2. Over the Rhine - Good Dog Bad Dog and Ohio (that voice!).
At a time of deep national division, where the cry for sound political analysis is at desperate pitch... I am glad to have been able to bring you the millinerd top 5 albums (which I own).
