Slint - Spiderland (1991)

I just want to make sure that EVERYONE has this album. I realise this isn't as obscure as it used to be, but everyone has to have this album and hear it. The greatest post-rock album ever, and still very punk in attitude. Slint's music just sounds like Slint. With the barely audible vocals, with the spoken word parts, with the heavy guitar parts, all these aspects make Slint Slint.

Very intriguing album cover, shot by Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, very intriguing songs, and plain amazing lyrics. Check out the lyrics if you can't hear them, because a lot of parts are barely audible due to the mixing (the guitar parts overthrows the vocals).
