Pretty good list.

Yea, I've seen it before. DDN is #1. I think I can agree with that... I mean, there might be thing si like better, depeneding on the day, but it's easily the indeal apex of 80s alternative.

I wouldn't have put two pixies albums on the top 10 though. I think a top ten should really show they variety of the decade. The rest of the list is good. Anyway, I was disappointed that Bad Moon Rising didn't make it.

TheDom 04.13.2006 09:56 PM

Yeah, it actually is.

One question I have: How does Meat Puppets - Up On The Sun beat Meat Puppets II by like 20?

noumenal 04.13.2006 09:59 PM

Murmur kicks ass.

krastian 04.13.2006 11:42 PM

Yeah Murmur is is REM.

RockerNino 04.13.2006 11:44 PM

yea, they did a good job with the 90s list too. DDN rules.

Inhuman 04.13.2006 11:50 PM

Hmm, The Whitey Album should be on.

golden child 04.14.2006 12:05 AM

its a pretty good list, needs bleach though

acually, the 90s list sucks

Flen flyys 04.14.2006 12:36 AM

A piece of shit list. Pixie's fucking love affair and no Throwing Muses or Suzanne Vega.

dietzer123 04.14.2006 01:18 AM

i'm just glad to see some they might be giants on there! i'm one hundred percent accordian-core until the day i die!

hey alex 04.14.2006 01:46 AM

it's too soon... well, maybe was, too soon to have a truly awesome 90's list.

I'm glad television personalities was on the list. I got into them from that list. It's a really out of place album for 1981

IntoTheGroovey 04.14.2006 01:50 AM

Not a bad list. I haven't heard a lot of the records from about 50 - 100, but I'd add NIN's pretty hate machine (that was 89 I think).

Glice 04.14.2006 04:19 AM

Yarr. Nice to see the Fall and Prince in the top 20. Although in a just world the top three would contain The Fall, half man half biscuit and purple rain, but we can't always get what we want, can we?

Hip Priest 04.14.2006 04:22 AM

Good to see Duran Duran there, but the only reason for picking 'Rio' above 'Duran Duran' or 'Seven and the Ragged Tiger' is 'Save a Prayer' (a very good reason). The other two are better LP's, and 'Seven and the Raagged Tiger' in particular has a grandiose pop majesty that cannot be denied ('Tiger Tiger', New Moon on Monday', 'Union of the Snake').

Signpost 04.14.2006 04:28 AM

What? There's no Swans album?

Hip Priest 04.14.2006 04:37 AM

Top would be 'A Secret Wish' by Propaganda. THen The Fall and SOnic Youth.

NO place for either of the GAye Bykers on Acid's classics, 'Drill Your Own Hole' and 'Stewed to the Gills'? Bah, humbag and balderdash. And not enough Public Enemy on the list.

IN many cases the LP's picked are by the right bands, but I think are the wrong LP's. So you're right.

johnnywinternoshow 04.14.2006 06:01 AM

I've got these
prince - dirty mind
pixies - come on pilgrim
big black -songs about fucking
beastie boys - licensed to ill
dino jr - living all over me
stone roses - s/t
eno&byrne - life in bush of ghosts
SY - sister
The Fall - saving grace
Public enemy - a nation of 1000000s
tom waits - rain dogs
pixies - surfer rosa
pixies - doolittle
sy - Daydream nation
thought I would have had more than that

Alex's Trip 04.14.2006 08:09 AM

They can't get every single band that released an album on the list...
