Television - Marquee Moon - The title song, along with the last song, are the definition of epic. The rest is mostly epic, with some other epicness sprinkled around.
The Clean - Anthology - I think the first disc is absolutely perfect, and if you actually listen to it, I hope you think that too. This is an example of some 80s, perfect, poppy rock from New Zealand.
Iggy Pop - The Idiot - It's crazy and awesome. Rock-y, kind of electronic-y, and sounds demonic at times
The Kinks - Arthur or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire - Seriously, this rock opera, Something Else, and ... The Village Green Preservation Society are better than the Beatles.
The Boswell Sisters - Kick all kinds of ass. Old stuff with loads of harmony and makes you happy. It's 30's vocal jazz.
Any Billy Chlidish is kickass, too, if you enjoy garage (punk) rock, which is a genre worth exploring.
I hope you read this post, listen to the music if you haven't before already, and like it, because I like it.
