Anyone who cares know the names. I think Dweezil Plays Frank is as catchy as Zappa plays Zappa.

the only (yet great) second tier Ween albums are La Cucaracha, Shinola, and 12 country golden greats. The rest could be put in any order for all I care. I'd put the Mollusk at number 1 and all others at a tie for number 2.

All I can say is stop. Stop denying the fact that this album is FRICKING INCREDIBLE! Everything ever made sounds a little bit like something else. This group just put together sounds of different genres and made a great dance album. Let's celebrate!!!!

When I read Robin was going to sing Corduroy, I was worried. Turned out to be pretty decent. I like that they molded it to their own style. Anyone who tries to out Pearl Jam Pearl Jam is bound to lose.

wow. Just really frickin great. The tension that was "the terror" meets the gorgeous melodies of previous material = a great future for one of our best.

Although the production isn't groundbreaking, this is Eminem at some of his verbally dextrous best. And like everything he does, you can actually follow his flow (unlike many other rappers who rhyme fast). Not game changing, but any Eminem fan will love this. A solid return to form.

I saw them twice at Sasquatch this year (they played an abbreviated second set in a shack for those who waited in line....me) Not for a moment did I think she was a dominating force. She's pretty, sure. She has a great voice, sure. But that was a band. They rocked.

I was really hoping Somewhere would be on this list. I think it's the best song they ever wrote. Also, Fopp, Hands all over and Uncovered should be considered.

July 2, 2013 on Sigur Rós Albums From Worst To Best
Ok, so I truly believe Sigur Ros made 3 albums so great that I'd compare them to The Bends, OK Computer and Kid A. AB, (), and Takk. The others are great too....but to not have these as the top three is a little questionable. I can't rank these albums. It's like ranking Radiohead (or even Pink Floyd) albums. Really too great to put numbers on.

Not that I'm particularly a fan, but I feel I'll end up hearing "alive" by Empire of the Sun this summer as much if not more than most of these songs. It has that summery vibe. Or maybe "recover"...even though its not new its super poppy and people like hooky jams like this in the sun. Deafheaven have moments of beauty, but they're always eventually barreled over by the vocals. Kanye is just angry. "Step" would be a better song off MVOTC.

Grimes played on the second "Bigfoot" stage.....not the main stage. You must have been closer than I was, cause the sound of her set didn't carry well to the back. This seemed to be a trend for multiple acts on this stage (Vampire Weekend was particularly quiet).

Check out Heartbeats and Marble House. This is why alot of people care. But we also love the experimental side of things. I'd say go ahead and check out Mountains - Centrailia.

There are glaring similarities between this and the new Flaming Lips album. Both are challenging, but sure to reward with repeat listens. Also, both have a couple bangers to please the pop fan in all of us. But neither are pop albums. Far from it. These are bands still interested in creating. Love them more for it.

I don't know if I agree with the ordering of this list....but putting Clouds Taste Metallic at number 1 makes me REALLY happy. The Soft Bulletin may be their most important album, but CTM has always been my favorite. Oh, and anyone who didn't listen to Zaireeka in the way it was intended to be heard missed out on something monumental.

Heck yeah, check that out. He's a great performer. Come to think of it, I don't this his album is that great.....It's more about his energy, which comes across far better live.

Money Store > No Love Deep Web. Aesop Rock's Skelethon? Also, I'd put Macklemore and Ryan Lewis on any best of hip hop list (but I'm from the pacific NW, so I'm a little biased).

Chan Marshall should be on this list somewhere. I have mixed feelings about her latest album, but as a human being she is about as beautiful as we get.
