The Dreaming - maybe a little too all-over-the-place for me to consider it her best, but it's still great - filled with hooks and always fascinating.
Ocean Rain - a band I should listen to more than I do. Good sound, good singer.
Crazy Rhythms - this is fairly monotonous, but that's kind of the point, and it's effective and memorable. I don't listen to it very often anymore but enjoy it when I do.
In Utero - I've never loved Nirvana, and I don't know if I've actually heard this album before today. It's good, maybe better than Nevermind - while it's not as obviously hooky there's still lots of memorable aspects, and the production really suits them. But it's maybe just a little too abrasive for me overall.
Bookends - these guys have never done much for me, for reasons I can't really articulate. This feels a little contrived much of the time, like they're trying too hard to fit in with psychedelia - but I also feel like their more acoustic stuff is kind of dull. Maybe I just don't think either is a great singer. Anyway, "America" is a great song and some of the others here are okay, while some are annoying.
Tonight's The Night - I like this more than some other Neil Young I've heard, since I think ramshackle suits him. But I still don't especially like it and I doubt I'll relisten.
Fragile - I like a couple of the short songs okay, "South Side of the Sky" is pretty good, "Roundabout" is alright, the rest I dislike. Something about this album just feels anemic to me.
The Money Store - I can see why some people love this - it's definitely different from most things I've heard and has an immediacy that's enticing. But every song sounds the same and the vocalist gets really tiring after a while.
Modern Vampires Of The City - I'd been vaguely meaning to listen to them again after discovering that I like Rostam Batmanglij's solo albums, so I'm glad you picked this. This one has the bonus of being co-produced by Ariel Rechtshaid, who worked on two actually great albums the same year this came out (by Charli XCX and Sky Ferreira). However, this one sucks. The first two tracks are okay but then they follow it up with two terrible songs that were apparently a double-sided lead single for some reason. They ditched some of the Afropop affectations of their early stuff but that just means Ezra Koenig's terrible singing is more exposed.
