Great pick with "Miles Smiles" -- maybe the best album from my favorite period of Miles's career.

It is def a fun one. That was my first Miles record (after Kind of Blue) and that really opened it up for me.

These are all on my next 25 after 25 list, though YHF and Sea Change should probably be there. Too much good music in the world!

Interesting Strummer choice. I always preferred Global A Go-Go.

I like Global a Go Go a lot, but it's a bit too sprawling and genre-exercise-y. X Ray Style has a bunch of songs I love to death, that are as powerful as they are unassuming and sincere-- like "Willesden to Cricklewood", "Nitcomb", and the gorgeous title track. I also listened to that album incessantly during my first year of college, and as a result it's much more ingrained in my memory than any other Strummer or Clash album.
