Steve Albini is an American musician and audio engineer whose many recording projects have exerted an important influence on independent music since the 1980s. Most of his projects from 1997 onwards were recorded at the Electrical Audio studios in Chicago. Albini is occasionally credited as a record producer, though he dislikes the term to describe his work.

As a musician, Albini has fronted the bands Big Black, Rapeman and Shellac on guitar and vocals. He also played on other projects from time to time, notably as a bass guitarist the touring incarnation of Pete Conway's solo project Flour whose records he also engineered.

The list is in chronological order by date of release, but is incomplete.
