STM's and MMB's Fantastic Voyage Through the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time!

edited April 2013 in History of Rock
Well lately me and MMB have been listening to albums together and discussing them live. Recently we ran out of albums to do so we decided why not do the best? So this is our impressions on the 500 greatest albums ever based on the list by Rolling Stone.

Some albums are completely new to us and some we know and love, but we're going to do them all.

Here is the list if you're interested.


Let's begin shall we?

    Hey are you gonna let other people get in on these live discussions (particularly me). Or are you two just gonna horde all the fun for yourselves ?

    I do not like this list. How the hell does Lil' Wayne make the list? And there's not much punk in there at all (for variety's sake this is a bad thing).

    I do look forward to seeing you guys react to each and every single album, though.

    This is ridiculous.
    This is awesome.
    I want in.
    I'm gonna make my own album discussions.
    Or maybe you can just let me join in on select albums.
    That would be cool.
    You know what, never mind.
    Have fun doing this.

    The discussion was good, and I look forward to seeing more of them....

    ... But Pearl Jam's Ten not being in the top 200 and not a single Muse album in sight make me not like this list. :(

    How do you think I feel? Not a single Rush album.

    :O What?! Why are you doing this list then? Migrate while you can!! Find another :/

    Got to expand.

    I also noticed there's no Yes or Genesis or any other prog that I know of. But there are weird compilations and greatest hits collections both of which I don't agree belong on the list, but I'm not here to judge the list, I'm just listening to the albums.

    Rolling Stone hates prog.

    Moving Pictures deserves a spot on the list over The Best of the Girl Groups. It's easy to make one of the greatest albums of all time if I can pick the best songs from a large group of artists.

    This is quite a task you guys have going on.
    How long do you think it will take?

    I'd put In the Court of the Crimson King around the 70s.

    I have not yet discussed the possibility of bringing in other people with MMB. We shall see. It wouldn't be permanent if we do it at all.

    Also we may throw in a few other albums with the list. Or I thought of the idea of replacing just a few of the compilations with our own picks. I'll talk it over with Justin.

    I honestly have no idea how long this is gonna take. Months probably if not longer.

    I didn't say people. I said me. And I'd only want to do like five albums with y'all.

    Ok so this is what we have decided. We have 25 slots that we have decided to swap out the compilations and others for some bands that we think should have been on the list but weren't. Then we came up too many so we're going to let you guys vote on what bands get into the list and also what album by them is the best.

    Muse
    ELO
    Genesis
    Yes
    Cake
    Boston
    Donovan
    Rush
    Meatloaf
    Frank Zappa
    King Crimson
    BNL
    Warren Zevon
    The Flaming Lips
    Jimmy Eat World
    Styx
    They Might Be Giants
    Black Keys
    Huey Lewis
    Fratellis
    Dream Theater
    Van Der Graaf Generator
    Ben Folds Five
    Bob Seger
    Alice In Chains
    Megadeth
    Anthrax
    Slayer

    So yeah bascially we have 25 slots to fill and 28 entries. So instead of voting for 25 just tell us which 3 shouldn't be in there and then we'll do a vote for which album to listen to

    Jimmy Eat World - Clarity
    Fratellis - Costello Music
    Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand

    Edit: I was doing good suggestions dammit.

    The Fratellis - Costello Music
    The Flaming Lips - The Soft Bulletin
    Cake - Comfort Eagle
    Barenaked Ladies - Your pick (that's not what the album is called; I'm letting you pick the album)


    Let me be there if you do these. Please. I'll pay you.

    Or... actually, you know what? Maybe I'll just start my own music-listening thread with Witt or dog.

    No, I just like messing with you guys. I like to see what people do when I attempt to mess with their dynamic.

    So it is decided, we shall form our own renegade group. We'll call it "The Other Dinosaur"

    As for bands that shouldn't be on there.

    Anthrax
    Meatloaf
    Genesis

    I could go for Meatloaf and Anthrax but Genesis has to be on there.

    The only albums that I own in the Top 500 list are:

    Arcade Fire - Funeral
    Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend
    Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
    The Clash - London Calling
    The Smiths - Louder Than Bombs
    Meat Loaf - Bat Out Of Hell
    George Harrison - All Things Must Pass
    R.E.M. - Automatic For The People
    Queen - A Night at the Opera
    Green Day - American Idiot
    The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead
    Creedence Clearwater Revival - Chronicle
    Bob Marley & the Wailers - Legend
    The White Stripes - Elephant
    Coldplay - A Rush of Blood to the Head
    Wilco - Yankee Tango Foxtrot
    Everything by Simon & Garfunkel and The Beatles

    Still, I'm kind of ashamed. I should have more. But a kid can only make so much money, you know? And I'm more into television than music.

    I hate Anthrax. Genesis -- meh. But I kinda like Meat Loaf. Well, only the "Bat Out of Hell" album, really.

    I love Anthrax, but they don't have anything close to the greatest album ever. Meatloaf has one ok album and some singles. Genesis never was able to stay awake through an entire album.

    Just stick to the original list.

    I don't think its fair to have a compilation album on a greatest albums list. Anyone can put together a bunch of songs on a mix tape. Teenage girls do it all the time. Talent is creating your work as a band.

    That was pretty much our idea as well. Hence the substitution thing.
