15 albums in 15 minutes

I'll be spending a few days at home in Leeds for a bit of home cooking and convalescence. Before I left I was asked to complete an inconsequential Facebook survey, and I do hereby present my reply...

The rules: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen albums you've heard that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Tag fifteen friends, including me, because I'm interested in seeing what albums my friends choose...

Nico - The Marble Index

Soft Cell - Non Stop Erotic Cabaret

Suicide - Suicide

Whitehouse - Great White Death

Scott Walker - The Drift

Serge Gainsbourg - Histoire de Melody Nelson

Siouxsie and the Banshees - Kaleidoscope

Current 93 - The Inmost Light

Velvet Underground and Nico

Dopplereffekt - Gesamtkunstwerk

White Noise - An Electric Storm

Coil - Musick to Play in the Dark Vol. 1

ABBA - The Visitors

Chris and Cosey - Techno Primitiv

Kate Bush - The Dreaming

Granted that took a little over the allocated time, but still I think it's a decent selection. It captures a narrative and it does so better than any of the others I saw.
