pretty much any dance or minimal electronic music, country music, and - frankly - most hip-hop from the era.

A few albums from the MTV Amp groups aside, this is pretty much right.

I tried in vein to get people to download one, just one Isolee single but there were no takers.


I love Wearemonster, is the first one as good?
Well cool on the web like Spiderman.

edit: actually, hate might be the vote-splitter. it's the one that first got them a lot of u.s. attention, sadly enough

really? i thought the great eastern was the one that really broke them into the US since it was mercury-nominated. i remember there being a serious gap between hate's release in the UK and US. i thought that'd kinda hurt it. either way, i think we can all agree that this is a good band who hopefully has one album on this list. for the record, i voted for both the great eastern and hate.

If Pulp wins this too, Iwill be very upset. Seriously, does anyone else not like them?

you're probably right. Hate was the first one that was anticipated in the U.S., which inflates a record's reviews upon its release but wouldn't make much of a difference in a poll like this, assuming Americans eventually went back and heard TGE at some point.

i don't mind pulp i have different class. it's a fine record in a retro (would you call it?) brit pop way. but i just never have the desire to put it on and listen to it from the begining to the end.

I like them quite a bit - but they are not "#1" material.
Every Sunday morning I wake up
I see you by your dresser doing your make-up
Fluttering a Chinese fan in a Knoxville fashion
All last night you tossed and turned
Your body was hotter than the night Richmond burned
You say you had a bad nightmare about tractor trailers crashing
- The Felice Brothers

The Great Eastern was definitely the U.S. breakthrough for the Delgados.

I agree with 100% of this comment.

And Mitchell, I'd love to hear about your connection to Pilkington... listened to that podcast until it stopped being free, and it was the best half hour of my week. I may have to start a thread for this...

I dont think I've ever heard a Pulp album. I like some Joe Jackson and I'm pretty sure he was their singer. The local library has a great selection of shit so I should probably rent something from them, any suggestions? I voted for "Common People" in the singles poll, only it was the William Shatner version. I guess this post means my votes wont count as much in the year end list.

lol, I have no fucking clue, I thought he sang background on the Shatner "Common People". Their is this thing Google, and Wikipedia, maybe I should use thoose more often before making dumb ass posts.

EDIT: The first time I heard "Common People" Ben Folds and Shatner were on Stern. I thought Folds made a refrence to Joe Jackson being backing vocals and that Jackson wrote the song.

Good to see this out of the way so quickly. Also kind of neat to see them nearly bookend the Top 250

ah, i see. yeah, joe jackson was in on that "common people" abortion, but, as i'm sure you've discovered, jarvis cocker is pulp's singer and main songwriter. and, really, i think he's one of the best storytellers in music over the last fifteen years.

Liars - They Threw Us All in a Trench and Stuck a Monument on Top


Year
: 2002

US Chart Position: n/a

UK Chart Position: n/a

Charting Singles: n/a

Acclaimed Music Ranking: #30 (year), #183 (decade), #1479 (all-time)

AMG Says: "The debut LP from Brooklyn's Liars is a churning collection of jerky punk rock, funk grooves, and computerized mayhem that oddly enough comes off quite charming. With sufficiently angular guitars, British-tinged vocals, and a truly pummeling bass presence, the group rocks with phenomenal energy and absolutely no restraint. The half-hour-long closer, "The Dust That Makes the Mud," collapses into a puzzlingly repetitive, sample-ridden hip-hop beat that ends things on a bizarre note, but the lead-up is pure rock & roll, complete with the attitude and aggression that makes for a great listen. Liars have a surprisingly unique approach that distinguishes them from other groups in their willingness to experiment with different tones, volumes, and styles, all of which make They Threw Us in a Trench and Stuck a Monument On an astounding debut. Catchy group vocals are all over the disc, and just about every chorus is instantly memorable yet still somewhat pummeling. The use of digital sounds and beats only adds to the unique properties of the record, giving it a feel somewhat akin to later Les Savy Fav records, only with a much more punk-fueled sound. Liars are something special, and when a young band puts out a record like this it is hard not to pay attention. Where they'll go from here is impossible to guess, but with a band this hyperactively creative, that seems to be the point."

Ranked Highest By: Gil-Scott Heroin (#7)
