Top 20 records
I happened to stumble upon this page that claims to list the best 100 record in the world and was alarmed that I have only two common records (Faust: The Faust Tapes and Comus: First Utterance). Hence, the author is mostly wrong.
Here is the correct list. However, top 100 is a bit too arduous for me right now, so I'll settle to top 20. The list is not definitive and is subject to change at any arbitrary moment. Only one record from each band or artist is allowed.
20. Kate Bush: The Kick Inside
19. Faith No More: King for a Day, Fool for a Lifetime
18. Hitomi: Thermo Plastic
17. The Mars Volta: De-Loused in the Comatorium
16. Magyar Posse: Kings of Time
15. Theatre of Tragedy: Velvet Darkness They Fear
14. David Bowie: Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)
13. Electric Wizard: We Live!
12. Tiamat: A Deeper Kind of Slumber
11. Sentenced: Amok
10. Solefald: The Linear Scaffold
9. Elend: Winds Devouring Men
8. Decoryah: Wisdom Floats
7. Emperor: Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk
6. The Gathering: How to Measure a Planet?
5. MonumentuM: Ad Nauseam
4. Third and the Mortal: Memoirs
3. Ulver: Perdition City (Music to an Interior Film)
2. Devil Doll: The Sacrilege of Fatal Arms
