Haha it's okay Earl.

And yeah, the list is pretty predictable. Definitely an accurate reflection. 19 and 20 were a bit random (thought they are only 19 and 20) and I didn't actually expect a Beatles album to make it. Also, I didn't think that many SY CDs would be up there. And no Dirty was surprising.

Other than that, not very surprising.

Just to give an honourary mention to three albums that never quite made the top 20, but missed out by such a small margin that it hardly seems fair not to give them any mention at all:

John Coltrane's, A Love Supreme

 


Neil Young's On the Beach

 


Black Flag's Damaged

The biggest surprise of all for me was how badly albums like Psychocandy (just a couple of votes I think) and Nirvana's Nevermind, which also only received two.

Yes. Got out tomorrow, buy it, then blast it in headphones or your stereo as loud as possible.

ok, I can give the final scores for the top twenty. You have no idea how long it took me to do these. It's fucking mental realising how crap at computers you are halfway through something like this:

Daydream nation - Sonic Youth (99) Almost twice as many votes as 3rd place!
Loveless (72)
The Velvet Underground and Nico (51)
Sonic Youth - Bad Moon Rising (50)
Evol (46)
the velvet underground-white light white heat (44)
Captain Beefheart - Trout Mask Replica (41)
The Beatles - The Beatles (39)
sonic youth - sonic nurse (38)
Yr Living All Over Me - Dinosaur Jr (34)
Sister - Sonic Youth (33)
Marquee Moon (29)
Fun House- The Stooges (26)
Radiohead Kid A (25)
A Thousand Leaves - Sonic Youth (20)
The Birthday Party - Junkyard (19)
dark side of the moon - pink floyd (16)
Hawkwind - Space Ritual (13)
Rain Dogs, Tom Waits (11)
Slint - Spiderland (10)

Not bad, 4 of my 5 were in the top 20. the top 3 were identical.

I was of course MASSIVELY tempted to add a few votes to The Cramps' Songs The Lord Taught Us.

I'm still really suprised Spiderland made it even that high. I think I've heard Slint mentioned here like twice, max.

I was expecting a far better showing for Pavement. Not that I like them myself, just imagined they might.

Rob's big vote for Trout Mask Replica definitely aided the Captain's cause. That's for sure.

I'm not surprised by the what came up at all. The vast majority of posters on here have pretty conservative taste, all considering. The irony of it is that is that some of the albums voted have an inherent quality of making you look out for other stuff, yet the overall feel is that of a crippled taste in music in who voted for them.
