My top 20 indie rock albums of all time. the best of the 80's 90's and today including Radiohead, Elliott Smith and The White Stripes. Alternative music made without the influence of major record labels. In my opinion these are the purest, strongest, soul filled indie albums. no fillers, no watered down taste, no corporate hang-over. Every one of these albums changed my life and i promise if you give them a open minded listen they will cuddle up inside your soul and grow like golden magic tumors or diamond crusted insect eggs with a caramel core. They will give you super powers.
