I consider Slowdive and Lush as Ethereal Shoegaze or something like that

btw I can't decide if my favourite genre is rather Ethereal Wave or Death Metal
>Pale Saints -
I considered putting Rites of Spring but it seems so aesthetically different if someone was starting out with emo

you can't have all those as your favorite genre.
Oh go on, please.
The only one that doesn't fit is Garifuna, which isn't actually a genre of music, sort of in the same way that MPB isn't a genre.
i guess that works too

i probably agree,

Do one for each wave, like:
>Venom - Black Metal
>Forgotten Woods - As the Wolves Gather
>Leviathan - The Tenth Sublevel of Suicide
True, but I think mine explores three different aesthetics present in first wave. Plus those are just the essential of the essential.
Yeah I see what you mean, but I think it'd sort of avoid the misconception that the 90's Norwegian scene is all black metal has to offer.
Either way, those are all great albums
Agreed, and likewise.
>No Wave

And Swans is a bit late in the game.

I know this list is pleb as fuck but they really are the best introduction to hip hop from all three major regions.

Atmospheric Misery
> Uaral - Sounds of pain
> Bohren and der club of gore - Geisterfaust
> Skagos - Anarchic
>no Wu-Tang

apart from that not bad.
>Avant-garde metal

Shining - Blackjazz
Sigh - Imaginary Sonicscape
Unexpect - In a Flesh Aquarium
I still think Sleepytime Gorilla Museum is way better than Unexpect.
I guess Unexpect would be a bit more entry-level, but we are talking about avant-garde metal. Anyone who wants to into it should go for something at least a little challenging first.
Sleepytime Gorilla Museum is way better but Unexpect is still something any newcomers should at least hear.
>Illmatic/36 Chambers
>Straight Outta Compton/Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde
>Soul Food/Southerplayalisticadillacmuzi

My two cents on the the best intros to each region. Also enough diversity within those albums, pick and choose whichever.
I love wu tang but i was limited to three, and illmatic is a better introductory album for the whole east coast. If I was doing a list for exclusively east coast
enter the 36
and either the low end theory, moment of truth, or Ready to Die
My avantgarde metal essentials would probably look like this

>gorguts - obscura
>maudlin of the well - bath
>sigh - in somniphobia
all great picks

these were my top two picks
I love both of these albums, but I feel like Doggystyle incorporates the gangsta of SOC and the g-funk movement which were both essential to the region. The Pharcyde have always felt more in tune with the whole Native Tounges movement, so I would include them in an intro to that group.
honestly I'm from Houston so I'm biased towards UGK but these would both be just as good, although I'd probably pick Aquemini just because of how it brought the styles of Kast's two previous albums together and seems to be generally more cohesive as an album.

You do have good taste in hiphop though anon, I totally blanked on goodie mob
That makes sense, especially if they already enjoy progressive metal.

Mine would go:
maudlin of the Well - Bath / Leaving Your Body Map
Sleepytime Gorilla Museum - Of Natural History
Portal - Outre'

I think that would cover basic, a bit more difficult, and full-blown impenetrable.
dont listen to him
Shit. I forgot about Gorguts.
Definitely replace Portal with that if you like death metal more than black metal.
New Order - Substance (1987)
The Chameleons - Strange Times
Wire - Chairs Missing
My avant garde metal would be
>Naked City - Torture Garden
>Peste Noire - Ballade cuntre
>motW - Bath
jazz noise:
one bird two bird by akita/gustafsson/o'rouke
borbetomagus by borbetomagus
stones by gustafsson/stetson
Hmm lets see

Acyl - Algebra
Giant squid - The ichthyologist
Callisto - Noir
John Coltrane - A Love Supreme/ascension
Duke Ellington - Money Jungle
Jackie McClean - let Freedom Ring
Post bop btw.
Alternative Rock

Pixies - Doolittle
Weezer - Buddy Holly
The Rentals - Return of The Rentals
Shit I meant to say "Weezer - Blue Album", I honestly have no clue why I said "Buddy Holly".

No Maxinquaye? I feel as if that LP is pretty much the cornerstone of trip-hop and still is a good starting point for the genre.

Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures

Pere Ubu - The Modern Dance

Pretty hard to sum up the entire genre in four albums and try to fit some of my favourites in there as well.
>love wu tang but i was limited to three

no excuses
This is fucking shockingly bad.

>My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
>My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
>My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
>Tool - Ænima

Better intro prog albums, go
King Crimson - ITCOTCK

Henry Cow - In Praise of Learning

Bonus: Third Ear Band - s/t
>Math Rock
Don Caballero - What Burns Never Returns
Polvo - Today's Active Lifestyles
Hella - Hold Your Horse Is

Slint - Spiderland
Cul de Sac - China Gate

ITCOTCK i'll grant you. The others are barely prog rock at all and, although they are diverse I don't think they'd act as a good introduction.

>The Taj-Mahal Travellers - July 15, 1972
>Sword Heaven - Entrance
>not including itcotck
It's good tho
>Henry Cow - In Praise of Learning

uhh, that might be a bit much for a beginner.
It's ok but Daydream Nation & Confusion Is Sex are much better
All stoner? Shit list, friend. Shouldn't have expected anything different from /mu/ though. Get some traditional or funeral or sludge. Doom is too broad to cover with three albums anyway
i'd pick lizard or Larks' Tongues in Aspic before ITSCOCK

>drum n bass
dieselboy - substance D
dj dara - future perfect
ak1200 - shoot to kill
Prog is too vast to cover with just three albums. But this covers some decent ground. Though I prefer other symphonic prog albums to ITCOCK and I think The Mothers Of Invention are a better avant prog band, it still covers the styles
Dream Pop

>Beach House - Teen Dream
>Deerhunter - Halycon Digest
>Grouper - Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill
>Henry Cow - In Praise of Learning
i approve of this.
but tago mago might be better choice
there is nothing wrong with starting with "advanced" stuff
Prog rock
>Close to the edge
>Thick as a brick

Jazz fusion
>Hot Rats
>Bitches Brew
>Head Hunters

this is shit

don't get me wrong, there are other bad ones in this thread, but this is just so outrageously bad that i feel obligated to go out of my way to post about how fucking terrible it is

Black metal

>Vegas Martyrs
>prog rock
Genesis - Foxtrot
Can - Tago Mago
The Mothers of Invention - Weasels Ripped My Flesh

Bonus: In The Court of the Crimson King (for your prog boy points)
Prog rock
>Brain Salad Surgery
How do you even find a favorite genre?

Songs I like are usually random.

>Better intro prog albums, go
Anything Rush did between '76 and '82
It's great that these prog lists have no Pink Floyd. No seriously, you guys are wrong.

[spoiler]Meddle would be my choice on the list.[/spoiler]
Canterbury Scene
>Soft Machine - Third
>Caravan - In the land of grey and pink
>Robert Wyatt - Rock Bottom
but genesis a shit
>not even yes
But Genesis is the best symphonic prog band. Yes is great too but Genesis is better. Sorry.
why are you laughing?
Weasels ripped my flesh goes more for the free jazz side and is in general really weird to be considered prog
I just consider it avant prog
>not Welcome to Hell
I'll be damned if anyone shits on One of These Days.
Uncle Meat is probably a better choice
Yeah probably, I just prefer Weasels. I still think my list was decent.
Both of those are spot on. Good job, anon.
Just so you know anons, I'm saving this thread and if I find any albums I don't like I'm never taking your recommendations again.
Longshot: anyone a chiptune fan? Need some essentials.
