Top 25: Round 2, The Albums October 31, 2009

I tried to make the whole list making thing a bit easier by not catering to R so much, but rather incorporate the albums that were quintessential to me and Mon’s musical independence. It didn’t work. It may have even made it more difficult. These are the game changers. These are the albums that we listened to over and over and over again and they still don’t get old. And we plan on forcing them upon little R’s ears. Until he rebels. There are certainly a few of those cliche albums that appear on every “best of…” list ever compiled, but they work. At least for us. Ask me tomorrow and I may give you an entirely different list. Though I won’t (make another list). This is it for now. The albums/artists I hope to never hear come through speakers in my house/car/ear would’ve been fun, but I don’t think I have the energy for it. Plus, I don’t want to offend any of you by putting your favorite all time album on my “Worst. Album. Ever.” list.

And now that I’m done bitching about making this list, here it is (alphabetical by album title).

1. The Bends – Radiohead
2. Dark Side Of The Moon – Pink Floyd
3. Different Class – Pulp
4. Either/Or – Elliott Smith
5. Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere – Neil Young & Crazy Horse
6. The Hot Rock – Sleater-Kinney
7. Innervisions – Stevie Wonder
8. L.A. Woman – The Doors
9. Led Zeppelin II – Led Zeppelin
10. Nevermind – Nirvana
11. Not A Pretty Girl – Ani DiFranco
12. Off The Wall – Michael Jackson
13. On The Corner – Miles Davis
14. Operation Ivy: Energy – Operation Ivy
15. Parklife – Blur
16. Paul’s Boutique – The Beastie Boys
17. Perfect From Now On – Built To Spill
18. Pet Sounds – The Beach Boys
19. Rumours – Fleetwood Mac
20. Trust Me – Culture
21. Two Cents Plus Tax – Versus
22. The Velvet Underground & Nico – The Velvet Underground
23. Washing Machine – Sonic Youth
24. The White Album – The Beatles
25. Writer – Carole King

As was the rule before, if you hate it or love it, feel free to let me know. If you can’t stand one of these albums and feel the need to rip me a new one on my choice of putting it up here, then go right ahead. Say what you want, I promise to take no offense (I will just add whatever you don’t like to a continuous loop that plays on this site).
