I don't need the Avalanches record as an excuse to swing my dick in the sun. For a start it won't fit in the hole.

I'm surprised I voted for it, to be honest. :lol: I think I was gonna cut it for something else but then forgot. Still, it's a fun record that I still play every so often, which is really the core of this thing for me - stuff I still play and enjoy at least once in a while.

Although i consider myself a fan to some extent still, i practically never listen to Cave's solo albums these days. I think i am done with them.

Avalanches will be coming soon I reckon... based on it being the most overrated 60 minutes and 39 seconds of recorded music... ever.


It's a fun album which I enjoyed at the time, but it wore out its welcome fairly quickly. I'm pretty surprised people are still rating it highly over 15 years later. It's continued reputation is rather baffling.


The recent vinyl reissue had it top of mind for me. I think it holds up.

To me it sounds like 70's disco. Can't understand the popularity of this album.

Gillian Welch - Time (The Revelator) - Hm I rate the next two better have to listen. Either way little deeper in my list.
Fever Ray-Fever Ray - thought this would be here, not for me. okay
Deerhunter - Microcastle/Weird Era Cont. - Like Halcyon Digest better but still not a top 30.
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus - great but not top 30
Kate Bush - Aerial - see earlier comment
Porcupine Tree - In Absentia - 5 points from me.
Joanna Newsom - The Milk Eyed Mender - another Joanna album nice I really should get into her more.
John Grant - Queen of Denmark - sorry heard it not my thing I guess.
The Antlers - Hospice - :o :oops: Oh my I didn't have it on my initial list damn it. I would have given it at least 5 points. sorry guys :x
Steven Wilson - The Raven That Refused to Sing (and Other Stories) - I went with a different album love this too.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven - one of the last albums cut from my top 30.
The Shins - Chutes Too Narrow If I made this list 5 years ago it would be on it. These days its back in the high 40's
At the Drive-In - Relationship of Command - great album
The White Stripes - Elephant - ugh yeah should have picked this knew it was coming I went with another album.
Swans - The Seer - yeah this was my pick too.
Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti - Before Today - really? okay I guess
Deerhunter - Halcyon Digest - should have made my list.
Queens of the Stone Age - Rated R - good album to hard for me.
The Avalanches - Since I Left You - forgot about this album very at the time album. stopped listen by 05.

Well, it is pretty unashamedly an album you can dance to, and what's wrong with '70s disco? Nothing, that's what!

For sure I had no problems with it sounding like 70s disco. I'm the last person to have a '"disco sucks" mentality towards it. It was just a bit flimsy that's all, a few decent ideas spread quite thinly and I seldom, if ever, feel like going back to it. Still, it's quite a nice counterpoint to the all the very serious music on the list. I do wish I'd voted for Daft Punk 'Discovery', but I forgot about it.

I bought that At The Drive In album at the pound shop recently and thought it was hysterical shit.

Some good albums in that bunch though. I prefer the follow up to that Shins album. Rated R is very robust and I expected to see it higher.

The follow-up (the name escapes me) might be the one to make the top 20. I much prefer Rated R, tho'. Fuck of an album.

Into the top 40 and while there's still things coming through from the prog/avant cohort, its becoming more digestible to my mainstream ears. As I've been saying a lot, it seems, I really could/should have had Rated R in my list and Chutes Too Narrow, Halcyon Digest, The Avalanches and Elephant are all LPs that on another day...
