Veedon Fleece has been my favorite Van album since my trip to Ireland where I listened to it every day. “Astral Weeks’ older, wiser cousin” is a great description. Enjoyed the list!

Yes. Nice work.

Any list that includes Drain You, Aneurysm and Radio Friendly Unit Shifter is correct.

Yes, it IS the quintessential Stripes song

Their version of Death Letter might be my favorite live song ever

I’m not quite the superfan #1 that I was in ’94/’95 (I was the perfect age — 14) but I believe 1,039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours (which was a combo of their actual debut LP 39/smooth and some EP tracks) was their debut on Lookout, not Kerplunk. Either way, thanks for writing this, brings back some good (and bad) memories. It’s interesting how you can still love an album 20 years later but for entirely different reasons. Now I appreciate the effortless sense of melody and song structure. Obviously back then it was the lyrics and energy that hooked me. This album, plus Rancid’s Let’s Go, plus In Utero, are what inspired me to start a band. We probably played When I Come Around a couple hundred times.

Beck maybe? But I agree re: Damon

I generally like this list, but State of Love and Trust should probably make an appearance. Best early Pearl Jam in my opinion. I also love Last Exit almost as much as Corduroy. And I think No Way is underrated . . . and Red Mosquito.

When their career is over and we all make Best of Daft Punk playlists, they will all be the greatest playlists ever.

Face to Face is my favorite Daft Punk song. I listen to it at least once a day. And I always thought the sample was “the third law” as in the third law of physics. Fits thematically. And love the ELO Evil Woman guitar sample. Such a beautifully produced track
