Interference's Top 100 Albums of All Time - Results Thread
 
http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c3...picture-10.jpg

Hey there, it's your old pal John Stamos! Or, Uncle Jesse, for you aging housewives with nothing to do all day but sit around and watch ABC Family. I was the best celebrity my good pal LemonMelon could find out on the street on a last-second notice, and I will do my best to do add pizazz (do people still say that?) and charm to an otherwise boring list that nobody cares about. So many marquee celebrities have done countdowns such as these, so I have a lot to live up to.

Today is a very special day on...uh...inter-(what the fuck does this say?)...something...dot com, as we're about to announce what 36 of the nearly 50,000 of you think are are the 100 greatest albums of all time. Now, I have a bit of experience in the area of music. Heh. I even had multiple hits with my band Jesse And The Rippers, like "Forever" and...uh...anyway...just remember, I don't NEED to do this, I'm as famous as ever. Anyone who gets the honor of doing a voiceover in Farce Of The Penguins and gets name-dropped in The Benchwarmers doesn't NEED to do anything ever again...but that damn kid just HAD to go near my cardboard box. Fucking out-of-court settlements.

Anyway, we'll be back after a short break with your #100.

You started this thread RIGHT as my class is getting out and I have to go take an exam.


Damn you, Mr. Mel.

I think this deserves a :fuckyeah:.

elevated_u2_fan 11-20-2008 10:26 AM

Blame Stamos...

Is the comercial break over yet?

Hey fuck you, ad! I don't need no telephone add-on that tells me my secret crush, even if it does come with a free Pink ringtone! I got all that already!

#100 - Led Zeppelin - I
http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/image...6d00e010.L.jpg

Hailed world-over as one of the first and greatest examples of hard rock and blues becoming its own genre of sorts, I hasn't aged a second. Even Rolling Stone loves it....now. Here's what leading musicologists have to say:

Quote:

This album and band make me laugh, just about everything on it is plagiarized. I don't trust listening to Zeppelin anymore, just about every riff and melody and lyric was stolen. I'll admit they do make plagiarism sound half decent. Not.

This review is from: Led Zeppelin I (Limited Edition) (Audio CD)
You Americans have made yourselves the laughing stock of the world by describing everything as "awesome", "cool", and "gnarly". And ,oh yes , I think that Led Zeppelin are the most overarted band of all time , even more than u2 and Pink Floyd.

Man, when all the frat boys in the US started listening to Zep instead of The Lettermen and The Dave Clark Five it must have been one weird week.

The Sad Punk 11-20-2008 10:32 AM

I don't think I even care about the list now. I just want to read excerpts from reviews by leading critics!

Leading musicologists :wink: I think that's what got me...cause it's kind of what I'm going to school for, and those quotes are so not representative of the stuffy people that can be musicologists. :lol:

#99 - Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique

http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/image...dbbcb010.L.jpg

Melding a billion samples with bizarre rhymes and some actual beats of their own, making this album would get anyone imprisoned in the year 2008. However, it still kicks ass and you should stick it to the man. Here's what professional critics have to say:

1.0 out of 5 stars OUTRAGE!, January 4, 2000
By Norman Noodleman, Esq (Djibuti, Djibuti) - See all my reviews
I am personally outraged by the flagrant use of silly words and funky rhythyms in this song. What are we teaching the youth of America? If you must buy this CD, please do not expose it to any young people. It is VERY naughty. - Norman

1) I'll admit that the production and beats are really high-quality here. Higher-quality than anything else I've heard by the Beastie Boys. Though the Public Enemy/KRS samples should give you some insight into where their inspirations come from, to put it politely.

2) Their voices annoy the piss out of me. I have trouble listening to this crap. It sounds like Alvin and the Chipmunks doing a Run-DMC impression. The only song where I can hear past their annoying annoying screeches is "Three Minute Rule" which I'll admit is pretty awesome.

3) I was actually discussing this with my sister last Christmas: Every Beastie Boys fan either of us has met has said something like this: "I hate hip-hop... ok except Beastie Boys". Coincidently (?) this is the only hip-hop album RYM has ever recommended me. Frankly I get a weird Amos and Andy vibe and I don't want to touch it with a ten-foot pole. Sorry guys.

I guess this review was originally in all caps before Tradition stuck her foot in the door.
