12. The Wedding Present - 'Seamonsters' (1991). David Gedge's band had always occupied the more misanthropic and self-loathing ends of Great Britain's C86 indie-pop scene. On their third album, they plunged even deeper into bad feelings than they'd done before, and their music turned stark and ugly to match the sentiments. Naturally, Albini was exactly the guy to record this sort of thing, and the result is a minor classic of unforgiving Brit-rock.
