Good list. I bought "My Aim is True" soon after it came out, and I didn't like it. Probably two months went by before I gave it another chance, leading to one of those "wow" moments.

Here's three I'd add:

Dixie Dregs, "Free Fall."

Steve Miller Band, "Book of Dreams."

Tom Waits, "Foreign Affairs."

Wire: Pink Flag
(Otherwise, I believe your list is complete!)
