i mean proper insanity stuff. mental illness, suicide, turmoil, pestilence...that kind of thing. none of yer ryan "my girlfriend left me" adams with his heartbreaker or beck "i've just discovered acoustic guitars" hansen on seachange. The only heartbreak albums we can have will be ones where, i dunno, the girlfriend/wife was eaten by a bear or something.
Of course, with all my strict declarations in the paragraph above my starting picks will be scrutinised and probably mocked/rubbished. Whatever.
Starters, mostly blindingly obvious. That's why I'm making this thread:
Neil Young - Tonight's The Night
MSP - The Holy Bible
Bowie - Low
Lou Reed - Berlin (yeah yeah, i know)
Nine Inch Nails - Downward Spiral? Not sure about that one. Do goths count?
The Cure - Disintegration
Nirvana - In Utero
Ok, that'll do for now.
