Let's talk about albums that haven't exactly been canonized or even have a cult following that you are aware of that you think are fuckin' rad. Don't be afraid of ridicule, just talk about music that you would like people to have a second thought about.
The first two Mars Volta albums got some praise from some critics, but were immediately banished from the hip cookout by major taste making publications. But they are SO fun, in my opinion. They are a love or hate kind of band, but their first two albums at least have quite a bit to love. Interesting unique sound and a great sense of melody. AWESOME drumming from Jon Theodore. Intense and convincingly weird lyrics that would sound stupid plain spoken but are strangely captivating and immersive when sung by Cedric Bixler Zavala. Many people see them as pretentious, but they are clearly no more pretentious than the recent Swans albums(which I do like). They even have more bang for your buck, honestly.
