No smiths, no Joy Division....
but it's good to see a list that isn't really boring and the same stuff. Think I might check out some of the acts I havn't heard before on that list :)
over the usual boring Smiths Joy Division Stone Roses crap, which to be honest does little for me. It's great to see stuff like Beulah, The Promise Ring, Xiu Xiu and Yo La Tengo in there instead - lots of great albums you rarely see in lists like this. Also, quite a few things I've been meaning to check out.
perhaps trying a little too hard to be cool, I certailny dont think Portugal.The Man and Vivian Girls for example deserve to be in there at all and the certianly are a lot of bands oddly missing... but heh for a top 100 its certainly not bad
Michigan? Ultimate Alternative Wavers? An Of monreal album that isn't Hissing Fauna? Pick the bands' best albums...c'mon
Then again, what with the inclusions of the likes of:
Horses In The Sky
The Milk-Eyed Mender
Hearts Of Oak
Lift Yr Skinny Fists
Liberty Belle And The Black Diamond Express
Slanted & Enchanted
it seems like you might be onto something...
Apart from Liz Phair. And I've never heard of Unrest. Who the fuck are Unrest?
that has Guided by Voices at No1
Why would you expect the Smiths?
Lots of these would probably make mine, if I was ever that sad, and it's definitely a lot more interesting than I was expecting...
