DisintegrationUnited Kingdom The Cure
Kiss me goodbye, pushing out before I sleep
Can't you see I try
Swimming the same deep water as you is hard
'The shallow drowned lose less than we,' you breathe
The strangest twist upon your lips
And we shall be together
And we shall be together

Master Of PuppetsUnited States Metallica
Lashing out the action, returning the reaction
Weak are ripped and torn away
Hypnotizing power, crushing all that cower
Battery is here to stay

PornographyUnited Kingdom The Cure
Sharp and open
Leave me alone
And sleeping less every night
As the days become heavier and weighted
Waiting
In the cold light
A noise
A scream tears my clothes as the figurines tighten
With spiders inside them
And dust on the lips of a vision of hell
I laughed in the mirror for the first time in a year

ViolatorUnited Kingdom Depeche Mode
Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand?
Oh, my little girl

CloserUnited Kingdom Joy Division
Procession moves on, the shouting is over,
Praise to the glory of loved ones now gone.
Talking aloud as they sit round their tables,
Scattering flowers washed down by the rain.

Doesn't matter what you believe in
Stay cool

Who is righteous, what is bold
So I'm told

The Head On The DoorUnited Kingdom The Cure
Say goodbye on a night like this
If it's the last thing we ever do
You never looked as lost as this
Sometimes it doesn't even look like you
It goes dark
It goes darker still
Please stay
But I watch you like I'm made of stone
As you walk away

By the last breath of the fourth winds blow
Better raise your ears

Lock up your wife and children now

There are many great albums here but I feel little of your own personality or love of music comes through (something that the few well placed notes or a chart bio might help remedy). Only four of your 100 albums sit outside the overall BEA top 1000 and all but one are only ranked low because they are picks from artists who already have a number of entries in your chart. I don't mean to be rude when I say this but I feel like you are yet to carve out your own taste yet, try avoiding the classics and look off the beaten path - who knows you might find something you love that's a little different!!
