Absolute Punk's Absolute Classics

I'm not familiar with this website, but it appears to be exclusively centered around the punk / emo scene, which isn't exactly my 'scene' in the first place (which is okay, I have no problem with different tastes). Anyway, here's a list its staff made earlier this year:

15 Absolute Classics-
The Anniversary - Designing A Nervous Breakdown
At the Drive-In - Relationship of Command
Blink182 - Dude Ranch
Bright Eyes - Lifted or The Story Is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground
The Clash - London Calling
Cursive - Domestica
Deftones - White Pony
The Dismemberment Plan - Emergency & I
Less Than Jake - Hello Rockview
Marvelous 3 - Hey! Album
Modest Mouse - The Lonesome Crowded West
Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
The Promise Ring - Nothing Feels Good
Propagandhi - Today’s Empires, Tomorrow’s Ashes
Thursday - Waiting

"Some of these albums are classics of our music community, and there's no which way to argue. And then some of these albums - while still classic - may have never crossed your doorstep. That's why we're so pumped for this feature. Truthfully, classics are almost always relative to genre, listener or time period, but they all have one thing in common: they're damn good. So the fifteen albums listed below, compiled wholeheartedly by your AbsolutePunk.net staff, are our collective personal favorite classic albums and maybe a few of your new favorites. Tell us what you think of our picks - are we crazy, correct or missing a few? What classics would make your list of 15?"
