I live near Modesto thus have been privileged to follow the band since 2000. Seen them live so many times and Kevin was always an integral part. I've many friends who are friends with him. Its hit the area hard.

I really wanted to go to this show but Grandaddy were playing too. Had to go with Grandaddy.

Grandaddy are my hometown heroes. So glad to hear them making great music again. I get to see them in SF on Sun too.

I love somber Beck and I love this.

I am damned excited about a new Grandaddy album and tour.

Fambly Cat is definitely underrated. I really dig Rear View Mirror and Summer It's gone. And the tour was great! Saw them in Merced (hometown show). My sources tell me a spring '16 tour is in the works.

I'm so hot and cold on Clark's stuff; love this one.

Had to call in to stay home with a sick kid. Been listening non-stop for 5 hours, so many amazing tracks. This is what I've been waiting for the past 15 years.

I'm just wondering if he included that sad picture in the letter.

Great news about Camera Obscura, thanks! I had no idea.

Am I the only one who loves Broken? Other faves would be Last Living Souls, To Binge and Feel Good Inc. I dig Albarn's shit, but I find his albums uneven.

I was, and still am, a Secret Machines fanatic. Anybody who was fortunate enough to see them live knows how epic Benjamin Curtis's guitar playing was on perennial closer First Wave Intact. I'll miss his talents and those moments in live music that can't be replicated.

Well-written list. I'm a fan since War and its nice to see Zooropa and ATYCLB get some love. Most big U2 fans I know diss Rattle and Hum, but I dig the majority of it. I'd put How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb last and agree that Achtung Baby is #1. Still hope they can put out one more great record, something edgier than the last few.

Songs from the Big Chair and The Hurting are New Wave classics. Haven't cared for most releases from TFF after those two records, although Sowing the Seeds of Love (single) was a pretty good piece of Beatles-worship.

Teen Dream Dream has so many great ones, I would have included Lover of Mine and non-TD songs You Came to Me (my #1) and Equal Mind. A couple years ago my two year old son heard me play BH and made me play him Zebra 100 times at least.

Everything they do is great and underrated. Faves include "Hold on to Your Genre" "Patty Lee" & "Year Before the Year 2000". Anything off Inches.

Crystal should not be on a list of NO's top ten, even though its a decent song for late era New Order. Age of Consent, Dreams Never End & Regret are good inclusions, but True Faith has always bored me a bit. I'd include album tracks like Face Up, All Day Long and Your Silent Face and at least one from Technique.

Need more than one from Sea Change. The big Beck fans I know all revere that album, as do I. A great non-album cut I'd include would be Deadweight.

I've been a Clash fanatic since 7th grade in '81. Even as a 12 year old (White Man) in Hammersmith Palais struck a chord and has remained my favorite Clash song ever since.. Great list; it would have been a travesty if some of those weren't on there (Straight to Hell, Train in Vain, Complete Control, Clampdown) but my personal top 10 would probably include Guns of Brixton, Police on my Back, Rudy Can't Fail, Radio Clash and I love the their versions of Police and Thieves and Pressure Drop.

I think they've been watching too much Metalocalypse.
