Recently I dug through my CD collection and started to listening to 3 that I haven't had out for a while; they're old but pretty good. Spiritualized - Lazer Guided Melodies. It's one of those records that grow on you over time. A little like Pink Floyd. Amazing, layered production. Luna - Penthouse. Again, excellent production values. Simple 4 piece band that would have been huge had grunge never came to be. And The Jesus and Mary Chain's Honey's Dead. Not good from beginning to end, but about 8 songs that are pretty amazing.

*Oh and regarding Lazer Guided Melodies, just in case anybody decides they want this one, make sure to get the CD version with all songs indexed; the newest release has the songs bunched together in 4 'suites' that each contain, I think, 3 songs. So if you want to listen to a particular song, you have to fast forward to get to it. A pain in the neck. Why they did this on later pressings, I have no idea.
