    3. Death - Symbolic (1995)

    5. Demilich - Nespithe (1993)
    6. Supuration - The Cube (1993)
    7. Judas Priest - Painkiller (1990)
    8. Megadeth - Rust in Peace (1990)

    Oops, sorry, you said five.

    radiohead ok computer
    tom waits bone machine
    dj shadow endtroducing
    R.E.M. automatic for the people

    I couldn't choose a #5 smashing pumpkins siamese dream and sigur ros Ágætis byrjun were too close even after quickly going through the albums. Without nostalgia sigur ros would win it but that's scewing my whole list anyway
    A top 15+ list would've been a lot easier!

    Lots of all-time greats being mentioned here.

    I don't know what my top 5 would be.

    I'm pretty sure that Odelay and Crooked Rain would be on it, but after that I'm not sure at this time.

    2) Judybats - Down in the Shacks Where the Satellite Dishes Grow
    3) Slowdive - Soulvaki
    4) Ride - Nowhere

    Good question! There was a thread long time ago, highlights many female artist that came out with great albums. Hard to pick.

    Phew, way too hard to narrow it down to 5, but I'll try:

    Nirvana - In Utero
    Alice In Chains - Dirt
    PJ Harvey - Rid Of Me
    Radiohead - OK Computer
    Tool - Undertow

    Unfortunately leaves out The Downward Spiral, which is a masterpiece. Along with Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger. And about two dozen other albums.
