Perhaps the most bizarre, thrown-together list I've ever seen:
You gotta click on features and then in the right there's a link thing.
Sorta gives weight to those persons who find lists a waste of time. Me and my Hi Fidelity self continue to persevere... without lists and album rating scores we might as well be Republicans.
Bob Dylan - Modern Times!
and search for the article.
it just looks like someone who doesn't really buy/listen to a lot of music listening the albums that they own.
there're some good 'uns there... but it's like a drug addled rolling stone writer got together with a drug addled london scenster and randomly pulled records from their collections.
but i also must agree that if you haven't got/heard 'stories from the city...', your life is not just incomplete, but has a bloody great chasm in it.
where she's writhing around on a bed? Maneater or something? You've given me the need to be scared and sexual aroused at the same time... must youtube it now!
I've mixed up Peej and hall & oates before, won't be the last time, eh. :)
anyone who doesn't own any peej albums really hasn't lived. however, i prefer to go for 'rid of me' as the one people *must* hear. it's just so utterly powerful
couldn't agree more that people MUST hear 'rid of me'... stark, brutal, ruthlessly inventive brilliance. and one of the dirtiest records i've heard. fantastic stuff :)
someone who reads q and listens to jo wiley's radio one show all the time, who has very bland tastes, and has bought albums largely from the past 10 years - with the exception of one or two, of course - on the basis that q/wiley say they're "life completing".
not bad albums or a bad list, exactly. just very bland and unexciting.
but i did find this:
the bassist from PRE! writes for msn! weird.
Perhaps not the first points of reference for your average MSN reader wooed by the promise of a blog by a 'music biz insider'.

that explains the incompleteness of my life
I was expecting a much worse list, but it is incredibly dull and cliche
...you get companies like Microsoft with no heritage in music put these lists together to try and "own" music, they cater for the type of bloke who is really middle of the road, has no personal opinion on anthing and probably only has six CDs in his collection, neatly lined up on the fireplace and consist of James Blunts 1st album, New Womans Greatest Hits, Power Ballads, some free cd with the London Evening Standard and Fat Les's Vindaloo.
