I had it on my list as well ... I can't remember if it was top 10, but it was for sure top 20.

#47 - Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot



I'm surprised that it's this low, honestly. Wilco's best album, and you can't convince me otherwise.

Quote:
A watery thin gruel simmered from the great albums of the late 1990s - e.g. Elliott Smith, Sparklehorse, etc. It grates, it simpers, it blathers. And yet somehow we are still shocked at just how underwhelmed we feel by the end of side 4. Oh ok, you got me. I haven't ever made it that far. And I spent a fair chunk on this too. You'd think I'd sit through it all, if only for financial reasons. But no. Not a bit of it. The thing is, there simply aren't any tunes. I mean really though. No fucking tunes whatsoever. And if you argue with that, fine - but know one thing. You have no ear for melody. In fact, you're basically tone deaf. Actually, that's what this whole record is - tone deaf. Despite its heroic efforts to the contrary it's exceedingly unmusical. Summarily then - a very, *very* overrated record.

Maybe a little bit better than I expected, but not much. Sounds like it was written with at least half an eye on the TV incidental music market. Not unpleasant on the whole (though it has its moments, like the quiet reversing vehicle beep at the start of "Poor Places", and most of "Radio Cure"), but not obviously remarkable, either. The whole thing sounds too keen to avoid offence; sampling a numbers station and making it unthreatening sums up the record's questionable achievement.

Then we'll just put that whole Jeff Buckley thing behind us.

#46 - Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes



And there you go. Don't hurt yourself in your excitement.

Can we all say "no talent Kate-Bush ripoff" kiddies? Yes, I thought you could....

The second release by dear Myra. I bought this one day, and I still regret it. "Tear in your Hand": _"I bet you're not leaving me because Charles Manson and I like the same taste of ice cream…"_
Somebody should've made her shut up in 1991. They could've smashed her piano, nailed that… horrible box she's in (on the LP cover) shut, and then they should've sent it to Antarctica (but not to the Cocteau Twins' Victorialand of course). Myra's just an American, whiny, jangly, ageing woman.

On the one hand you have The Office (UK): that smart, original, deeply moving and brilliantly funny sitcom by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.

On the other hand there's The Office (US), which is painfully stupid and amazingly unfunny.

On the one hand you have Kate Bush, that lovely, highly original and gifted musician from the UK.

On the other hand there's Tori Amos.

I really didn't know where it would fall so I guess I'm glad it's here at all. Would've been top 10 on my list, although in my head at least 20 records are top 10 so, I dunno.

#45 - Bruce Springsteen - Darkness on the Edge of Town



Let's see if we can get everything Bruce ever recorded on the list!

Quote:
If this slow, monotonous collection of ditties about nowhere people who have no reason to live doesn't make you want to lock up the razor blades, then you truly have a career ahead of you taking care of terminally ill patients. I listen to this album when I'm depressed, and I feel MUCH worse.
Quote:
Though many rate it highly for its hard-rocking and supposedly dark qualities, in reality Darkness was as overblown and pompous as stadium-rock ever got. On songs such as "Badlands", Springsteen - who could be brilliant as a folk singer - sounds like he wants to play dance-rock so typical of 1970s radio. Even if his voice is not generic like most stadium-rock singers and is still recognisable from the masterful The Wild, The Innocent and The E Street Shuffle of five years before, his players, no matter how much they try to rock, cannot overcome the pomposity of the sound.
Quote:
Hey, what happened here? Where did all the energy go? On Darkness on the Edge of Town, Bruce Springsteen sounds like he’s asleep on most of these songs. I really, really don’t like most of this album.
