Good list (and a tough task indeed).

I would add TV on the Radio's "Dear Science", MGMT's "Time to Pretend", and at least one Elliott Smith album (XO definitely, and Either/Or).

Yes Please...

Some other omissions from the last decade include:

MUSE - Absolution
Sufjan Stevens - Illinois
Little Brother - The Minstrel Show
Kings of Leon - Aha Shake Heartbreak
Snow Patrol - Final Straw
Ratatat - Classics
Radiohead - In Rainbows

Also, Wu Tang Clan - 36 Chambers has got to be on there. Overall, though, this is a great list. You pretty much nailed the 80's (minus the slayer/metallica stuff)

I like White Pony a lot. Got the limited edition red case version. But it's not top 125 over the last 25 years worthy, especially when you consider that the best song on the album was a "duet" with Kennan of Tool, it drops it out of consideration. (A very similar album to that that is on the list is PJ Harvey's "Stories" which has a duet with Tom Yorke as the pinnacle song, but is a more solid top to bottom album than White Pony.)

They were on the fringe of the list. It's hard to define them and while their body of work is impressive and varies, I don't think that there was anything "monumental" enough about any of their albums that would justify inclusion on the list.

To me, they are a Radiohead-lite. Excellent body of work, but it lacks the true introspective genius and musicality of Radiohead. "Deadwing" was close to being on the list though.

It's a re-work/copy of the philosophy that they used on Pyromania. While incredibly popular, there is nothing on the album that is innovative or unique and the song writing is god awful.

Big time selling album, but it's neither ground breaking nor good from a musical perspective.

They remind me of Radiohead in terms of creating excellent music that doesn't immediately fall into a specific genre, but they don't have the nth degree of substance and finesse of Yorke's group. (And Yorke's vocals are absolutey stunning, where Wilson's are lacking range and change. Maybe that is really the difference for me.) :shrug:

Like I said, if this list was the top 130, Porcupine Tree would have had something on the list, whether that would have been "Stupid Dream," "Fear of a Blank Planet," or the more "popular" sounding "Deadwing."

Don't get me wrong, I think that they are really good and have a fantastic lexicon of albums.

I kinda' see where you're coming from wrt PT/Radiohead now but I'd still never make a connection between them. They're too different, musically, to me.

Yeah, it all boils down to personal tastes. I think your list is a good one and that is taking into account that probably over half of the list is comprised of albums that I either dislike or don't give a darn about.

I don't think that "fantastic lexicon of albums" means what you think it means.

I don't think that "fantastic lexicon of albums" means what you think it means.

At least to me, there's not a huge stretch between PT and RH. There's a little prog in RH's stuff, both have some degree of pop at times, musically they are very adept and intricate and passionate. I wouldn't necessarily define PT as pure prog, especially albums such as Deadwing and In Absentia. Both are guitar driven, with PT being a bit more anthemic and chord heavy and RH being a bit more immediate, but, at least to me, they aren't so far apart, especially Stupid Dream, which, when it was released, was very Radioheadish in terms of it's overall sound (musically, vocally). But that was right on the heels of two of the best records ever in The Bends and OK Computer and there was obviously some influence from those albums on Dream, and as PT progressed, they developed a more unique sound which climaxed with Fear of a Blank Planet.

By lexicon, I was referring to the myriad of albums that each band has which represents it's work in totality. A signature of the band in terms of musicality which keeps them unique and distinct from other bands of their era.

And I did throw a couple of personal faves in there that might not be on some lists like The Melvins and Michael Franti (though I consider both of those albums superb and worthy regardless).

even better still....

but a really bad list imo. Madonna - Ray of Light? wtf... c'mon, any Sarah McLachlan album is better than that. PJ Harvey is just yuck. Plus they picked the worst Sigur Ros album.

LMAO Was that a mixtape that I've been unaware of or something? An Outkast/Sugarland collaboration perhaps?

They also called Gillian Welch's album Time (The Reinventor). It's actually called Time (The Revelator). I'm unsure if the mistake is mojo's or the people who republished the list (I'm betting the typo was made during the republication of the list on that site).

Antonym and the Johnsons. ROFL

Probably the most ironic/appropriate of them, considering his singing style is sort of gender bending.

Nirvana- Unplugged- my favorite album of all time.



I actually remember watching that live on MTV. A buddy of mine had some friends over that night to watch it and I remember thinking Kurt looked like he was pretty phucked up. However, it was eerie because he just looked like he had left the state of the world and entered another realm as though nobody else was around- it was only him and the music. It was haunting, and arguably one of the best nights for MTV's Unplugged. Too bad that channel went to shit.

But thank God for Austin City Limit's!

My boy, Hayes Carll, is taping an ACL session. Check it out when it comes out. He's the shit.

I will. I'm listening to him now on Amazon. I see he does a cover of Tom Waits. :thumb:

Sounds like Townes Van Zandt and/or Steve Earle.

The song "Faulkner Street" is pretty much a chronicle of a portion of my life. And, yes, he's a complete fan of Townes and he and Steve have toured together.
