    I'm in a bit of a musical rut. Recommend to me an album that you think i'll like.
    It can be any album.

    My favourite bands are Elbow, Radiohead, The Smiths, Joy Division, Stone Roses. Something along those lines?

    Thanks.

    you tried any pink floyd, slightly different from the stuff youve listed but they are what i would class as proper 'albums' as most of them have a theme running through them

    White Lies? They're quite smiths and joy division-esque.

    Digital Ash in a Digital Urn- Bright Eyes
    And agree with the Interpol although personally I think Turn On The Bright Lights is better

    Well yeah, if you just want a pale imitation of Smiths and Joy Division.

    While I don't agree Radiohead are depressing, this is a wonderful album and I highly recommend it to anyone.

    And you might like 'The Decline of British Sea Power' by British Sea Power, sort of like Joy Division and Pixies mixed together.

    Speaking of Pixies, I highly recommend the albums 'Surfer Rosa' and 'Doolittle', Thom Yorke is a big fan of them.

    And how about some Talking Heads? Try Remain In Light, it's sort of Joy Division esque in a way (the last song on the album is an attempt to write a song like Joy Division, despite the fact none of the band had ever heard a Joy Division song :P ), but they're alot more rhythmic than Joy Division, and a bit more cheerful.

    Oh, and you might like Television - Marquee Moon, I defy anyone not to like that album.

    You need some Arctic Monkeys in your life - first album will do nicely. And I second Hard-Fi! (Stars of CCTV, is the album you want.)

    Hounds Of Love - Kate Bush
    Little Earthquakes - Tori Amos. (a little bit like Kate Bush on this album but far more focussed just on piano).
    The La's.
    R.E.M.- 'Out of Time' is a safe bet but they have lots of albums that are great - I especially like 'Green' (very mandolin-based in part) and 'New Adventures in Hi-Fi' which is like a mix of their Out Of Time country rock and Monster-era hard rock.
