Good list. My list is very similar buy I would like to give mention to the following:
Acid House Kings
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart
I think Toro Y Moi’s “Still Sound” or Love Inks “Blackeye” should be considered.
Though it did make some lists, I feel that Menomena always gets overlooked. “Mines” was excellent. I also think another unrecognized album was the Netherfriends’ “Barry and Sherry.” It was one record I listened to religiously.
Why even post this! This band is no longer relevant. Actually, were they ever relevant?
Damn it! This should read – all “been” done before.
I hate typos!
I’m sure this would be fun live, but it just feels like it’s all be done before. Anyone remember Le Tigre!
I have to agree! Not having Neutral Milk Hotel and Modest Mouse is a tragedy.
Not that I dislike Achtung Baby, I just really don’t see how this rates above many of these other records. Not to mention that most of this list feels a little to out dated. Funeral at 66?! Yankee at 81?! But Hole at 55!!!! And leaving out Kid A – are you F—ing kidding me!!!! My list would actually have Kid A at No. 1, followed by Slanted and Enchanted. But everyone is entitled to their opinion.
Is this badges only or is it open to the public?
