No Malkmus =

And the fact that you have the inferior Doug Martsch on your list instead earns you a bonus

Another thing, I highly recommend checking out Quicksilver Messenger Service's album Happy Trails, w/r/t this survey.

Pavement is a band to me, and I can't separate the guitars from the rest all too well. If we're talking The Jicks, well, Real Emotional Trash has some amazing guitar work and would have been on the list had I given myself more room to work with. Unrelated: I also regret the lack of A Ghost Is Born.

The outro of Broken Chairs >>>> anything on Perfect From Now On.

Thanks. I heard the debut and was very impressed. This list isn't lacking psych by any means, but it could have used more. I've always loved the rambling solos on After Bathing At Baxter's, for one.

Well, I'd put forth Brighten the Corners as Malkmus' peak in terms of variety as well as the phenomenal solos on Type Slowly and Fin (to name two). The latter is one of the greatest solos I've ever heard, IMO, and I always turn the volume way up so I can hear as much of it as possible as the album fades to a close.

As far as his solo career goes, Real Emotional Trash does have some great, great stuff, though I'm not sure if the solos are as good as the peaks on Pig Lib (Animal Midnight, 1% of 1, Witch Mountain Bridge).

I would also add that while the guitar work is merely proficient, he never had a better guitar tone than he did on Slanted. Holy crap, Summer Babe is enveloping.

Oh, guess I missed out on Joni too. It's easy to take her guitar work on Blue for granted, but I've never been able to cover the songs on it because of the complex tunings, which make all the difference. It's like little else in pop music when you analyze it carefully. Hissing of Summer Lawns is pretty damn fine too, and almost made the list.

Artists that fell off the new list that were there in 2004: Louis Jordan (59), Etta James (62), N.W.A. (83), Miles Davis (88), Ricky Nelson (91), Martha and the Vandellas (96), Roxy Music (98) and Lee "Scratch" Perry (100).

Other notable moves: Carl Perkins dropped 30 spots in the list from 69 to 99. Nirvana slipped from 27 to 30. Other than that, there was very little movement in the last seven years.

Really? I don't think that he's doing anything revolutionary on that first album, you can smell those influences a mile away. I mean, it's perfect for what it is, but I just prefer the later, mellower playing.


And yeah, Joni is one in a million. I'd probably say Hejira would contain her best guitar work, or maybe Don Juan's Reckless Daughter. But for the songs themselves Hissing is my favorite.

LOL at dropping Miles from any list of immortals. He owns almost every motherfucker on this list.

A New Career in a New Town
Five Years
Life on Mars?
"Heroes"
Watch That Man

The more I think about it, the more I think Aladdin Sane might be my favourite Bowie album. The first six songs are all stellar, and so is Lady Grinning Soul, and even though I'm not a huge fan of Prettiest Star, Spend the Night Together or Jean Genie, none of them are bad.

Great choice of favorite album, but that list of David Bowie songs could be expanded. He has several more.

Aladdin Sane would be in the running for my favorite Bowie album as well. Every track on there is very good to stellar, but it does not cohere to the extent that Low or Station to Station do.

Definitely agreed there, and I ADORE Low, but Warszawa, Art Decade and Weeping Wall don't do much for me. Grinds the album to a halt. Yet I LOVE Speed of Life (the song that will be playing when a picture slideshow of my life is shown at my funeral), Subterraneans and New Career is my favourite Bowie song.

"Heroes" is really underrated I think. Outside of the title track, Beauty and the Beast, Joe the Lion, Blackout are all deliciously good krautrock tracks, and Sons of the Silent Age, Secret Life of Arabia and V2 Schneider are brilliant as well.

Too many more! It's so hard. That's the best I could do.

I still haven't heard that album, people keep scaring me away from it. Even though Low and Heroes are two of my favorite Bowie albums (my two favorite Bowie albums?)

It's not as bad as I bang on about, I just enjoy deriding it because it pisses laz off. But of the nine Bowie albums I own, it's easily last. Don't Look Back in Anger & Boys Keep Swinging are the only songs I truly enjoy.

Lance about three or so years ago, you said "Low will change your life". I sent you a pm asking you to elaborate, but you never did. I would love to hear why you love it so. You certainly don't have to answer, I just love reading people babble on about shit they love like I do.

I have a weird memory.

Wow. I don't remember that. I've probably cooled to it only slightly since then though. At least I do prefer Scary Monsters as my Bowie of choice these days. But Low's like... really cool and shit.

Is there an instrumental that is more befitting of its title than New Career in a New Town? Fucking amazing song.
