Facebook teenage albums list thing

I try to avoid jumping on the bandwagon with these types of posts but for some reason I’m caving in this time. Here are ten albums that re-programmed my brain by the time I started college. Pretty much all of these were introduced to me by WPKN, college radio, or CMJ New Music Monthly.
Future Sound of London: ISDN
Orbital: In Sides
Aphex Twin: Richard D James Album
µ-ziq: Lunatic Harness
Alec Empire: The Destroyer
Stereolab: Dots & Loops
Guided By Voices: Alien Lanes
Dr. Octagon
Sun Ra: Space Is The Place
Quasimoto: The Unseen
This is leaving off a lot of “obvious” (but still valid) choices like Moby, Beck, Björk, Beastie Boys, A Tribe Called Quest, Daft Punk, Pixies, Massive Attack, Tricky, Radiohead, etc.

Taking it further, here’s 10 college albums:
His Name Is Alive: Someday My Blues Will Cover The Earth (really all of them, but this is where I started)
Cocteau Twins: Heaven Or Las Vegas
Brian Eno: Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks
Venetian Snares: Higgins Ultra Low Track…
Duran Duran Duran: cdr he sent me in 2002
Longmont Potion Castle: Best Of
Alice Coltrane: Journey In Satchidananda
Coil: Musick To Play In The Dark Vol. 1
Negativland: Escape From Noise
People Like Us: Abridged Too Far
