1 Heaven or Las Vegas - Cocteau Twins
2 Pills, Thrills and Bellyaches - Happy Mondays
3 Ritual de lo Habitual

There also a couple I enjoyed, which might not count:
Smile - Ride is just a couple of singles
Wrong Way Up - Eno/Cale but the best song on my CD is only there as an extra track on a remaster

I have known you for years and can confirm that you do actually listen to that rubbish. (Most of which I like, too :D )

Paul Simon - Rhythm Of The Saints
Fugazi - Repeater
Edie Brickell & The New Bohemians - Ghost Of A Dog
Sonic Youth - Goo
Los Lobos - The Neighborhood
Ultra Vivid Scene - Joy 1967-1990
Neil Young + Crazy Horse - Ragged Glory
They Might Be Giants - Flood
The Breeders - Pod
Unrest - Kustom Karnal Blackxploitation
Cocteau Twins - Heaven Or Las Vegas

Neville Brothers - Brother's Keeper
Travelling Wilburys - Vol. 3
Robyn Hitchcock - Eye
KLF - Chill Out
Urban Dance Squad - Mental Floss For The Globe
That Petrol Emotion - Chemicrazy
Betty Boo - Boomania


Looking at that list I'm surprised by how many of them have been played by me within the last six months.

And though I deliberately left off reissues and the like, it would feel wrong not to at least mention Pet Sounds, Dream Letter: Live In London, Missing Links Vol. 2 and the Robert Johnson box in passing.
