Yeah. I’ve been kind of busy. Still, sorry for the silence.

Matt linked to the Pitchfork “top 1000 albums of the 80s” feature. It was definitely interesting. Funny – everyone latches onto a few things, but I guess there are few people who are really into all of the 100 albums they talk about. I was surprised at how many of them I own (or have owned) – a full 20 out of 100. They seemed to like them for very different reasons though – the reviewer of ‘Strangeways Here We Come’ dissed ‘Last night I dreamed that somebody loved me,’ my favorite Smiths song ever!

If you’re interested, these were the ones I own. Only really the Pixies, Smiths, Cure, New Order, Joy Division and Cocteau Twins stand out for me as classics.

  • Pixies – Doolittle
  • The Smiths – The Queen Is Dead
  • Pixies – Surfer Rosa
  • Joy Division – Closer
  • Prince & The Revolution – Purple Rain
  • Galaxie 500 – On Fire
  • De La Soul – 3 Feet High and Rising
  • My Bloody Valentine – Isn’t Anything
  • The Jesus & Mary Chain – Psychocandy
  • New Order – Power, Corruption & Lies
  • Sonic Youth – EVOL
  • The Cure – Disintegration
  • The Stone Roses – The Stone Roses
  • Leonard Cohen – I’m Your Man
  • Pixies – Come On Pilgrim
  • Elvis Costello – Imperial Bedroom
  • The Smiths – Strangeways, Here We Come
  • Cocteau Twins – Blue Bell Knoll
  • Kate Bush – Hounds of Love
  • David Bowie – Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)
