Brian Eno - "Another Green World"
Captain Beefheart - "Trout Mask Replica"
Faust - "The Faust Tapes"
Pink Floyd - "Piper at the Gates of Dawn"
Jimi Hendrix - "Are You Experienced?"
replace Experienced with Axis and Eno with Low and Faust with Tago Mago and you've about got it right
I like all those too - but the Eno album is much more fun than Low.
And thats an objective fact.
