20. Mogwai - "My Father, My King" (2001). Not actually an album, but this 20-minute song arguably does Mogwai's whole sweeping, mythic quiet-to-loud thing better than any other single object in the group's long, storied discography. Taking the melody from the Jewish prayer-song "Avinu Malkeinu," the group gives us what might happen if Lawrence Of Arabia had a sludge-metal score, and Albini makes sure every sudden flare-up hammers hard. These guys need to work together more often.
