If there was a definitive discography of classic albums, what should be in it? Host Mark Fraser from The Curator Podcast, and titans of Glasgow music/co-hosts David Weaver from Detour and Chris Cusack from Bloc, discuss and dissect perceived classic albums to decide which albums would make this list. Then, after we've talked it to death, we turn it over to you to decide once and for all via a handy poll. Cast your vote on our Facebook page and let's celebrate unsung classics.

Mark and Weaver were fairly sure that Chris was trolling with this selection, but they couldn't be sure until they gave Moby's wacky, idiosyncratic fifth album 'Animal Rights' a spin. Results are...varied.

To be sure, this is not like any other Moby album. There are guitars and shit. There's screaming. There's drums. It's like digital hardcore meets Nine Inch Nails with the occasional spattering of Moby's usual ambient self. This is a record that shouldn't exist. An oddity. A weird mole on the career of a guy is, by all accounts, a very nice man.

Chris loved it. Mark and Weaver weren't convinced. Chris gives us some deep insight's into the mans catalogue and tries to make a case for this recording going into the discography on Moby's nice guy credentials alone.

Regardless of whether or not you think this deserves a place in our discography, we all agree on one thing - you need to listen to this record. Because it's fascinating.
