I'd pop for either "Painless" or "I Can Hear the Heart Beating As One". Both are always vying for the spot as my favorite YLT album. "Painless" is a more concise/ focused album with a consistent feel and flow. "ICHTHBAO" is sort of their White Album- they try ...

Because Mezzanine easily ranks as one of the best albums of the 90s. It's so unlike anything else that they or anyone else had done. Blue Lines was just a really good collection of "trip hop" songs. Mezzanine was more than that. It's one big beautiful, dark, claustrophobic-sounding whole....

Love- Forever Changes You know how sometimes a trip can turn spooky? Everything is going along grandly, and then all of a sudden there are no more plasticine porters with their looking glass ties. Everything seems a bit off, and although it’s beautiful on the surface there is a creepy menace and yo...

Hey, thanks everyone who's written so far. But really, these don't need to be reviews. In fact, they shouldn't be. More ideal would be a shooting-from-the-hip, knee-jerk reaction. Keeping with n8's directions: The Modern Lovers- The Modern Lovers Greatest rock'n'roll record about non-rock'n'roll to...

Here's two that i nominated in the previous thread: The Fall- This Nation's Saving Grace The Fall's triumphant string of early to mid 80s albums peaks with this offering. Mark E. Smith rants about his new house and spolit, Victorian children. The Fall's jerky repetitive rockabilly/punk riffs are sti...

For EP, I'd say that the best for this list is Elvis at Sun Aren't these mostly the outtakes? I'd rather have a short, single disc of just the 10 or so master takes that were recorded at and released by Sun. My understanding is that (with one or two exceptions) these are the master takes. The "cont...

If it were up to me, I'd say the following stay: AC/DC- "Highway to Hell" Elvis Costello- "This Year's Model" Pavement- "Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain" The Ramones- s/t T. Rex- "Electric Warrior" And I'm still wondering that nobody else wants to include the "other" Elvis' Sun recordings?!? Other than t...
