Favorite "Other" Recordings Of All Time

I do not know how else to describe the recordings/releases/albums in this list other than to call them "other" style recordings. In the past I may have called them electro-acoustic improv recordings or more recently minimal noise like what I do with Partly Zombish. Either way it is very hard to classify the audio on these recordings. Some veer towards field recordings and while others toward music concrete but either way they are not rock, country, or glitch ala Mille Plateaux. You may be surprised to fine something new and interesting so I would highly advise that you seek some of these out and give them a listen. (Note: This list will probably change as I am always updating these kinds of lists.)
