Re: I'll help with the consensus:
I lump the Stone Roses in with '80s guitar rock, more along the lines of the Dream Syndicate; Madchester is something different (and yeah, both Pills 'n' Thrills and Screamadelica don't have to be on there, but XTRMNTR is totally different except for the same rock-and-electronica hybrid; still, there are many kinds of electronic music that you can't or shouldn't ignore). Ladies and Gentlemen sounds pretty different from the Roses as well but if it falls under symphonic-rock same as another it should be dropped. Discography is the better Pet Shop Boys album.
Some to add:
The Jesus and Mary Chain - Psychocandy
Oasis - (What's the Story) Morning Glory?
Aphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works, Vol. 1
Limp Bizkit - Significant Other (hey, it was huge at the time and quintessential doesn't necessarily mean good. It's funny how suddenly and how completely LB became unpopular)
Def Leppard - Pyromania or Poison - Look What the Cat Dragged In
