I was gonna redo it, but there probably isn't enough change to warrant doing so (I have to imagine the above list is in no particular order after the first spot). I might put The Electric Lady on it, which probably still seemed to new include when I made that list.

I had a lot of trouble ranking this time. And it could probably change at any time. It's really only the top six that are cemented.


A Senile Animal is my fav Melvins album. I think a lot of people rank it fairly highly actually.

One per artist... I'm pretty sure about my top 5...

1. The Beatles | White Album
2. Pearl Jam | Vitalogy
3. Fleetwood Mac | Tusk
4. Stevie Wonder | Songs in the Key of Life
5. Elvis Costello | Get Happy!!

And the rest, in no particular order...

Michael Jackson | Off the Wall
Fiona Apple | The Idler Wheel...
Ryan Adams | Love is Hell
Bruce Springsteen | Darkness on the Edge of Town
The Clash | London Calling
Prince | Purple Rain
Led Zeppelin | Physical Graffiti
Al Green | I'm Still in Love With You
The Black Crowes | Southern Harmony & Musical Companion
The Who | Who's Next
U2 | Achtung Baby
D'Angelo | Voodoo
Outkast | Speakerboxxx/The Love Below
Jeff Buckley | Grace
David Bowie | Station to Station
Big Star | #1 Record
Spoon | Kill the Moonlight
Kanye West | Graduation
Midlake | The Trials of Van Occupanther
The Strokes | Is This It

If I could do more than one per artist, I would add almost every Beatles record, more Led Zep, a few Pearl Jams, another Stevie and another Fiona and another Ryan.

Thumbs up for the Big Star. See, this is why I hate makes lists. Like I love to try but I left off Big Star. Which makes me sad.
