Probably would've made my list if I hadn't discovered it like last week. Great record.

No, it'll be stupid, and we're already doing something stupid.

This is an old list I made for Atease last year. It's already aged quite a bit...but I got lazy and didn't get time to make it current. However, that doesn't mean I don't love a single album on this list. I had wrote comments for most of these last year...but honestly most are quite horrible. I may add some comments in for the heck of it.

70. Sigur Ros - Takk
69. The Beatles - Abbey Road
Half of my floor during my first year of college smoked pot and we had 2 dealers living on our floor for the first semester, it was a grand ol time. Now my roommate smoked every once in a while, but not nearly as much as me, but he didn’t mind it, so it was cool. Here’s his problem. His loves billboard country music. He would always play it. One day, me and my roommate decided to smoke up together. I thought “hey! This is a great chance to diversify his music states, he has to like the beatles!” So I threw on Abbey Road…on his high-end Bosse sound system that he brought up and we blared that shit. My roommate was fucking baked and I was pretty high as well. We were just sitting in our chairs listening to the music and doing nothing else. “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” is bliss anyways but when one is high this song gets ridiculous towards the end, to the point where you don’t think you could ever get bored of that riff and then BAM. CUT OFF. Silence. Enter the acoustic charm of “Here Comes The Sun”. It brought me and my roommate by complete surprise. I hadn’t listened to the album enough to recognize the beauty of the transition and it hit both of us at the exact same time. We looked over at each other in complete awe and my roommate decided that we needed to hear that transition again. I’ve never seen someone that excited by music in my life. He said to me that he has never heard of music that flowed like that. Haha, then we got to the medley. Needless to say, I come back into my dorm room the next night to find him high as fuck again showing another mate on the floor what I showed him the previous night. The beauty of this album.

68. Meat Puppets - Up In The Sun

66. Megadeth - Rust in Peace

50. Sufjan Stevens - Illinois
49. A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory
Opening bass on “excursions”…nuff said. Ohh yeah…”Back in the days when I was a teenager before I status and before I had a pager…you could find the abstract listening to hip-hop, my pop used to say it reminded him of be-bop, I said well daddy don’t you know that things go in cycles…”

48. The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots
47. Eric B & Rakim - Paid In Full
46. The Beatles - Revolver
“I’m Only Sleeping” describes lyrically and musically the laziness/pot haziness of my first year at college. Overall, the album is jam packed with sure-hit singles. “For No One” is a perfect composition and Lennon’s lyrics are quite something else. Ohh yeah, I’m still trying to figure out how you can get cymbals to sound as good as they do on “Tomorrow Never Knows”.

45. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik

29. The Roots - Game Theory
28. Clipse - Hell Hath No Fury
27. Bob Dylan - Blonde on Blonde
26. Big L - Lifestylez Of Da Poor and Dangerous
You can’t help but feel as if you just took out the entire rival gang with the gat in your arm’s reach, smacked some cuties, sparked up a blunt, and gave a big “fuck you” to the local mayor when you start this album. Big L is straight killing this shit and I can say that. “I got a crime record longer than Manute Bol”, “I smash mics like corn bread, you can’t kill me I was born dead”, “I beat chumps til they head splits, then break em like breadsticks, I sex chicks, I'll even fuck a dead bitch”. I mean the kid was fucking hard and real witty with his stuff. It’s a shame he died at such a young age. The production on the album is real cold and nasty as well, just check out the slow crushing bass to “Danger Zone” as Big L leaves nothing on the table with lines like…”Front and get scarred cause your rap style ain't even hard, I run with a thievin squad, and NONE OF US believe in God.” I could go on and on, there are so many quotables on this album. Big L puts on a clinic for life.

25. Metallica - ...And Justice For All

10. Can - Future Days
It took a few listens for me to finally “get” this album. This is the ultimate chill album. This is one of my favorite drum albums because of how well they fit and work to control the overall atmosphere of the piece. “Bel Air” is 20 minutes long….20 minutes of bliss. Spend at least one listen devoting yourself to listening to the drumming in the song. The patterns and rhythms sound like they would be played very loudly by a rock band (the fills especially) but the way they are delivered here, in their muted glory, it’s relaxing and always interesting. The layers of sounds all work very nicely here and you are sure to pick up on lots of interesting tidbits every time you listen to it. I love the fact that just when you think it’s all over…they come back again to wrap everything up in a nice warm package for you to drool all over. It’s one of those albums I could play on repeat for a very long time.

9. Frank Zappa - Hot Rats
Zappa was a crazy dude. Lived a very weird life and made a shit load of albums. I haven’t even touched the tip of the iceberg on his releases…but this one struck me as special right away. When I heard this album for the first time, I thought to myself “this sounds fresh”. The orchestrated mess is brilliant. Zappa plays the guitar with enticing care and rage. The violin solo on “The Gumbo Variations” has to be one of my favorites. Love every minute of it.

8. Tool - Aenima
The first album I ever liked. I remember never being able to tell someone what albums a band had, unless it was like ACDC’s Back in Black, but this was the one to break that spell. This was the album that made me realize that music can be used as a medium to express ideas about life and actually make use of lyrics. I have to admit that I played the drums and listening to Danny Carey play was like eating a favorite candy bar…priceless. Every actual song on here is spectacular, besides “Jimmy” which is good…but not great. So yeah, I have a great deal of nostalgia with this album but overall, the songwriting on the entire thing is superb. The way that “Pushit” hits it’s climax, for example, can never let me lay emotionless. “Eulogy” was always one of my favorite songs…”Come Down…Get off your fucking cross…we need the space…TO NAIL THE NEXT MARTYR!” Enter weird distorted guitar solo. “Third Eye” is my favorite Tool track and it clocks in at 13:47. This is Tool as their most progressive roots and I love it. I’m a big sucka for long progressive songs and Tool does this one to perfection. I love the energy that Maynard releases towards the end of the song when he screams “PRYING OPEN MY THIRD EYE!” All the drum patterns throughout are godly and even the guitar tone changes are excellent, keeping one off-centered and not knowing what they are going to hear next.

7. Tom Waits - Rain Dogs
6. GZA - Liquid Swords
5. Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein
4. Pixies - Doolittle
I remember holding off on looking into the Pixies because of their name, it didn’t intrigue me and I had a bunch of other music I needed to check out so I kept on delaying looking into them. I was a huge Radiohead fan (still am, but not as obsessive) and I heard that Radiohead loved the Pixies and said they were upset about having to play after them at a festival. I still didn’t look into them. Then, one day at school, this chick I knew had her iPod out and wanted me to listen to a song. I knew she had decent taste in music so I gave it a listen. She said we were going to listen to the Pixies – Monkey Gone To Heaven. I listened to it two times in a row and went home that day to download the album “Doolittle”. I had instantly fallen in love. Their sound was unique and it worked extremely well. I had a horrible job at K-Mart and I kept Doolittle in my car and listened to it on the way to work and on the way back from work. I even made secret breaks out to my car and snuck in a few listens of some songs. The album grew on me like mold on some old funky bread. Frank Black’s yelping, hooting, hollering, and emotional outbursts of energy were exactly what I wanted to hear from a frontman. His surrealistic imagery became interesting to me as well. I also fell in love with Kim Deal. Her bass lines were soo good filling the body of the pixies with fat. Yes…fat. Fat fucking bass lines. I love them all. This is my favorite album to play really fucking loud as I try my best Frank Black impression. Special stuff. Ohh yeah, “Gouge Away” is my favorite track. The drums sound so damn right and the explosion of the lead guitar makes me melt. It sounds angry, as if the Pixies are marching towards you about to dismember your entire body.

3. Radiohead -OK Computer
2. Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea

Posted Image

1. DJ Shadow - Endtroducing....
My favorite album of all time. Josh Davis created what I believe to be the most accomplished piece of music ever. Digging up old samples from lost records and giving them new life and meaning. It takes quite the ear to be able to do that. But aside from Davis’s talent as a DJ…the overall piece WORKS and I’ll never be able to forget a single song from it. This is the one c.d. I can put on to make my day better and it will never let me down. Just feel the kick and snare on “Midnight In A Perfect World” and let the vocals take you to a better place. Listen to the desolate piano notes and the hope they give. I have never heard another album even come close to sounding like this one. All I want to do after listening to this one is roller-skate.

how anybody past the age of 19 might enjoy Converge is beyond me... it's really good hardcore/metal/crossover/whatever and i respect it, but i find it funny that any adult could listen to this stuff on a regular basis.

I'm amazed that someone of your taste says that. You bang on about pop-punk/grr-punk all the time.

Converge is like what you listen to, just less MOR.

If you don't actually like energetic music, then that's fine. But that 'I find it funny' condescension is just sad.

i know what you're saying... but the "grr-punk" (i like that by the way) that i like is always super melodic and could probably be played on an acoustic if need be. i just don't hear any tunes in Converge. i just hear machismo, really good riffs, and horrible singing.

i didn't mean to be insulting... i just find it odd when old dudes listen exclusively to metal/hardcore/noise/mathrock stuff.

you guys turn me on to all kinds of heavy shit that i would normally never come across. i just think Converge is funny and really dated sounding.



re: why I like Converge: The balance between energy, intensity, tightness, and a compositional craft nearly unparalleled in the metal genre (or music in general.) Maybe it's hard for a person to hear the latter if "it all sounds the same!" but that's the exact criticism a lot of people have of jazz, electronica, hip hop, any and all types of punk rock... they are writing off entire genres using criteria that is irrelevant to that music.

Funny thing is that I was never sure what I thought of You Fail Me when it first came out. It was intriguing, but for years it just blurred together. Now I listen to it a couple times every week. Might even make my 100 if I made it today. The energy and aggression never let up, but it still manages to be incredibly dynamic. Just because "a lot of the songs have 'metal' screaming and are really fast" doesn't mean they're the same.

I don't listen to Pavement nearly as much as I did five years ago. Hardly at all, really, although I still like them. Over the years I've been led to believe that guitar-based pop/rock music isn't all there is. Believe it or not, a piece of music doesn't have to have intelligible lyrics or a sing-songy melody to hold my interest. It can be repetitious, as well!

I wouldn't classify your tastes as "pedestrian," I just think that criticizing any music for being something that it is not aiming to be is a bit silly. The metal that Converge plays is not the same metal explored by '80s Metallica. They are reconfiguring certain elements of the music and playing up others. They are merging elements of grindcore with elements of post-hardcore acts such as Drive Like Jehu, Fugazi, Antioch Arrow, Unwound, etc. I don't just hear a bunch of indistinguishable abrasive bullshit when I listen to the music. Things that might seem like "just part of the noise" the first couple times have ended up standing out to me as distinguishing components of their songs, of which they've never written the same two twice, AMAZINGLY.

Eh. Doesn't have to be your bag, I guess. Also doesn't mean that you're not... uh... "missing" something. Also doesn't mean that you'll ever find that something and like the music. Speaking as someone who has managed to do just that over the years, though, it is entirely possible, I'm sorry to say.



I find it odd when people can listen to mellow music and not aggro music. Life itself is a dynamic experience and, unless you're on some Jack Johnson trip, there is always relevance in shouty, aggressive music.

i find it scary if anybody listens to only one type of music... not just heavy stuff. most of the time if people only like one type or sound in their music it can reveal a lot about their character. it reveals a stunted world-view, no matter what type of music we are talking about.

Very few people here do this. Especially the Converge fans. Burzum, Eskimo Kisses, and even Through Silver have some of the most eclectic tastes on the board. They just don't like every boring indie rock album that is safe enough to garner a Stereogum write-up. Not that I'm reducing your tastes to something as dumbed down as that (they're not), but there's this notion in the world of modern music criticism/canonization that abrasive music cannot be as "interesting" or "engaging" as more outwardly poppy sounds or reflect qualities such as ambition and sonic/compositional excellence. Which is absolute bullshit.



You do grow out of aggressive music. You may have nostalgia for it, but you won't be listening to it very often. Of course, this is a general statement and there are a few exceptions to the rule.


I'm late to the argument so I'll just add that it's not as if any of us choose the music we like--the music chooses us. Whatever types we like, it's because it sounds & feels good, no? The rest sounds bad and boring. I hope to god people here don't pass their music collection & listening habits through some intellectual filter. Also, if we're supposed to outgrow aggressive music, I really do hope I die before I get old.

Tongue-Tied, Wow..excellent list! (and write-up)..a lot of stuff on yours came close to making mine..or bands did with different titles. Entroducing is an album I've listened to a few times and liked, and always meant to pickup, but can never find the Deluxe Edition used @ Cheapo. The day I do, I may start to really get into it and DJ Shadow's other work perhaps.

I’m about a third of the way through a stupidly long-winded album rating endeavor so this selection was made under “spaceship leaves in 10 minutes, grab your favourite 20 records” constraints. Picking one album for some of these artists was like shooting babies.

Ill try and make up for my tardiness by “pulling a Vurt” sometime over the next year. I’m going to print off this entire thread at work tomorrow so that I can read it on the train on Thursday. No offence to Paul, because I really appreciate the effort he puts in, but some of the individual lists in this thread mean much more to me than the final one will. You know who you are ;)

Damo Suzuki: So, um, yeah. Getting older isn't as bad as it sounds. Better than being young & poor (DjDrake) or young & slutty (SG) or young, poor and slutty (Paves); am I right?

Alright, my friends. It's time for another solid little rock jam

29. Blur – Leisure

Are you sure you didn't mean, you know, any other Blur album?

I find this choice to be pretty much the most mind-bogglingly left-field choice in this entire thread.
