#500 - #463: Personal Favorites

1.31.2011


Hi there! A few people have asked me to give a quick rundown of my favorite albums from the Rolling Stone 500, so when they are looking for new music, they don't have to go back through every single post. The tag for these 'best of' posts will be 'the rest is shit' because it is hyperbolic and sarcastic (and untrue, in most cases).

I've listened to 37 albums, so I will pick a top 10 for you. These are albums I recommend you check out (if you haven't already), and feel free to click on the links if you want to know my top songs.

1) Tunnel of Love by Bruce Springsteen (totally biased as I've loved this one for ages, so I can't really tell if it's immediately likable to first-time listeners. If you hate it, then just chalk it up to my sentimentality.)
2) The Score by The Fugees
3) I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight by Richard and Linda Thompson
4) Maggot Brain by Funkadelic
5) Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness by The Smashing Pumpkins
6) She's So Unusual by Cyndi Lauper
7) Destroyer by KISS
8) Give it Up by Bonnie Raitt
9) The Stone Roses by The Stone Roses
10) The Smiths by The Smiths

Honorable Mention: A Rush of Blood to the Head by Coldplay

Happy listening! I'm off to album #462.

Ah, thanks! I can't tell you how much I love the The Rest Is Shit tag. Can't wait to come back and click on that.
