Somethin like that.

Ehhhhh, I already don't like it. But I'll stick with it. Obviously, there's a ton of stuff that is right up there with those albums. I guess these 10 are just the BIG inescapable ones from my youth that have had the most impact. I don't know.

Hmm. We share our top 2 in order, as well as Doolittle. And on some days I'd have Tracks on my list over Oh Mercy. Not today though:

1. Achtung Baby
2. The White Album
3. Pavement, Wowee Zowee
4. Steely Dan, Countdown to Ecstasy
5. The Replacements, Pleased to Me
6. Sugar, Copper Blue
7. The Afghan Whigs, Black Love
8. Pixies, Doolittle
9. New Order, Brotherhood
10. Bob Dylan, Oh Mercy

Too bad you only listed 9 albums. No wonder you're an incomplete human being. FAIL.

And yet we are so different. I recently acquired all of Oh Mercy, so I'll have to give a spin. I only had "Political World" and "Most of the Time" previously, both of which I love.

Ahhh, nice catch. I was never good at the maths. I guess I'll toss The Stone Roses self-titled debut in that #10 position. Or maybe Revolver. Or maybe Appetite For Destruction. Or Document. Or Crooked Rain. Damn.

If you're interested in compiling "Mo' Mercy", my deluxe version which include the brilliant songs Dylan cut over Lanois' protests, let me know. It's even more of a masterpiece, and rivals any of the recent renaissance albums.
