Nice list, although the Black Album is a big call. Which of their 80's albums is your favourite, Rangi?

If you haven't already, you should give ...and Justice for Jason a listen on youtube. As you can probably guess by the title, it has been remixed to make the bass a little more prominent.

Truthfully, if I hadn't limited my list to one album per band/artist I would have had 5 Beatles albums (for sure and maybe more) on my list.

I just looked over my list again and ... Neutral Milk Hotel is missing... I must have done something stupid during my multiple cut/paste operations. I had no idea. Aeroplane Over the Sea should be there.

I'm... I'm so sorry.
