I suppose if I needed horses I would click on that link, no?

Anyway it's pretty easy to guess what would be in the top 10 at least

probably #1 will be OK Computer, and we might expect 'In The Aeroplane Over The Sea' somewhere, as well as perhaps a Pavement album or two, or maybe even Sebadoh and Belle & Sebastian.

Wow, yertle. You're in fine form this morning.

Not that I expect anyone to care , but I own eight of the albums from 100-20:

Trompe Le Monde - Pixies
Maxinquaye - Tricky
Last Splash - Breeders
De La Soul Is Dead - De La Soul
Dummy - Portishead
Automatic for the People - R.E.M.
Bossanova - Pixies
Homogenic - Bjork

I'd be interested to see how many of the top 20 I have.

I care!

I also have 8 but I think I'll have a few in the top 20. I have:

62. Selected Ambient Works 85-92- Aphex Twin
52. Rid of Me - PJ Harvey
49. Bone Machine - Tom Waits
43. Automatic for the People- REM
21. Homogenic - Bjork

Here's their top 20 from their original list of top 100 at the end of the 90's (I have only 6 of these--my collection is missing some great stuff):

20. Grace - Jeff Buckley
19. Jawbox - For Your Own Special Sweetheart
18. Bjork - Homogenic
17. Walt Mink - El Producto
16. Beastie Boys - Check Your Head
15. Sunny Day Real Estate - How It Feels to Be Something On
14. Weezer - Weezer
13. Radiohead - The Bends
12. Pixies - Trompe Le Monde
11. Built to Spill - There's Nothing Wrong with Love
10. Pavement - Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain
09. Beck - Odelay
08. Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes
07. DJ Shadow - Endtroducing...
06. Nirvana - Nevermind
05. Liz Phair - Exile in Guyville
04. Guided by Voices - Bee Thousand
03. Pavement - Slanted and Enchanted
02. Radiohead - OK Computer
01. My Bloody Valentine - Loveless

Awww....you always care, joyful!



Some of those from the original list really fell a long way out of the top 20. I expect I'll have at least of couple of the new top 20. We shall see...

I love when little (and fairly unknown) gems somehow work there way into lists like this. Walt Mink was a good band...not great (IMO). Great local band maybe. But worthy of a top twenty? Neigh (a livestock reference).

I have a fun/embarrassing story about Walt Mink. I am an nerd though.

exactly.
I don't know what they're thinking by not including this album. I know this sounds biased coming from an obvious U2 fan, but I genuinely believe that the album belongs SOMEWHERE within the top 100. I mean, my god, that album was a huge musical step forward; it proved to be one of the most influential albums of the decade. It's a classic!

some critics just love to shun U2. I think they get off on it...

for Pavement (X2), Radiohead, My Bloody Valentine, Nirvana.

I like the old list better, only because I think Loveless is better than OK Computer.

And I think Slanted and Enchanted is better than both of them
