Half of mine were on there. Much better list than the over-all one. Sad there wasn't any Knife Play, though.

Strokes > Xiu Xiu????

Since when?

Excuse me, I think I meant to say not in the Top 5. Then again, Unwound is still relatively unknown to a lot of people.

The Strokes are obviously the closet band of a lot of people who post here.

My guess is that they were probably a bit like Pearl Jam for a next generation who heard them on mainstream radio and MTV and then got into the better music that they emulate and therefore maintain a soft spot for what they came by first.

I never had that middle ground, because when I was in high school it didn't exist (aside from maybe the Police and U2 of course) it was straight from mainstream radio to Confusion is Sex for me!

Good to see Lift To Experience make the list, even though it's the only one of mine that did. Did they get many votes aside from mine & Torn Curtain's?

And I'll nth all the props to SYRFox - as a few others have stated, it's a handy catch-up guide given that I've only heard about half of them. Still don't understand why so many people rate Nurse over Murray Street though...

You are certainly not alone in that routing. This sound like a great question for a poll!

Good list, Mr fox.

No Shellac ?
I'm surprised, their last one had got good critics on the board when it came out.

i'm shocked that sonic nurse beat murray st & nycg&f.

only one of choices made it to the top 35.

1) Fushitsusha - I Saw It! That Which Before I Could Only Sense
2) Quasimoto - The Unseen
3) Charalambides - IN CR EA SE
Joint 4) King Geedorah - Take Me To Your Leader & Keiji Haino - Next Let Us Try Changing The Shape
Joint 5) Merzbow - Yoshinotsune & Yo La Tengo - And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out
6) Charalambides - Live/Dead
7) Pink Reason - Cleaning The Mirror
8) Striborg - Trepidation
9) Teenage Panzerkops - Harmful Emotions
10) Eddie Marcon - Shining On Graveposts

If Terraform (NEEDS MORE LOVE!) or At Action Park had come out this decade I would have put on, but 1000 Hurtz just doesn't do it for e in the same way and I haven't got Grayhound yet. 6 of my picks made it, and my entire top 5, so I guess that means my taste is even more in line with the majority of this board than I thought. Great to see Fennesz so high. Makes me feel better about not voting for it (it would be top 15 for me, but not top 10). And yeah, mega plus points for the Boris placing. Oh and totally thumbs up to everyone for putting A Ghost Is Born on instead of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (not to say I have anything against YHF, it's just that AGIB is so brilliant. My number 2).

Yeah, Terraform rules!

Personally, I think shellac gets worse with every record... but they're still great.
