Your list is bristling with excellent albums (I've heard and enjoyed just about every one of them, to greater or lesser extents), but the above 1-2 combo just made me giggle......

Other than that, good stuff.

Those happen to also be on my list.  If I typed my list out, I'd probably get fired.  I thoroughly enjoy the rest of your picks, espeically Oldham, Pavement, AmAnSet, and of course Radiohead...

THIS IS NOT AN EXIT

There is alot of GREAT albums on that list...but I have to agree with Mr. Marlowe that it'd be near impossible to compose a list of pure perfection.

Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

I don't know if I like your list....I guess too much of the same artists.  (especially the HIGHLY over-rated Stones)  A few I'd rid of altogether : The Vines, Ocean Colour Scene, and  some of the Zeppelin albums (basically all sans Zeppelin 1 and Physical Graffiti).

I'm fairly mainstream/classic rock oriented. That is my list and I stick to it. I get maximum enjoyment out of those albums. Sue me.

5. Exile On Main Street - Rolling Stones


I know you're a big Stones fan, but I find this album drastically overrated.  It's got some of their best hits, sure, I'll concede that, but the rest of it is so samey, so overlong.  Maybe it's just that I care so little for the blues and this particular Stones album is such a roots-blues throwback.  I just don't get it.

Perhaps you can explain a bit about its overwhelming appeal.

It's the blues/country/gospel sound to the record. Also, the whole album just flows so well for me. No song sticks out as a hit (even Tumbling Dice), but each one supports the next. I also like the scratchy, rough sound of it, and the mumbly lyrics. And I love long albums.

...the mumbly lyrics...


Yeah, see, this has always been a barrier between me and the Stones.  The content and subject matter of their lyrics don't often interest me for long (songs like "Paint It Black" and "Sympathy for the Devil" are glaring exception to this—both great songs).  Which Stones album has the most/best non-bluesy lyrical subject matter (don't need to mention Beggar's Banquet, I've already got that one)?

Some Girls is great, you might wanna check out It's Only Rock And Roll.
For early Stones' super-pop, listen to Between The Buttons (UK version only).
