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?

    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.

    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.

    Even if I participated in every single album I own, I'd only be in like 5% of the discussions. You guys would be the stars, and I, a mere featured player.

    Starring Special Guest Witticus

    Part 1


    [12:17:52 AM] Justin Preston: Count it down!
    [12:17:56 AM] Blake Smith: 3
    [12:17:59 AM] Blake Smith: 2
    [12:18:02 AM] Blake Smith: 1
    [12:18:04 AM] Blake Smith: GO
    [12:18:14 AM] Justin Preston: I Wanna Be Adored
    [12:18:22 AM] Justin Preston: Fade in
    [12:18:25 AM] Michael Witt: See it wants to trick you into thinking theres no song
    [12:18:39 AM] Michael Witt: Nah, that's just traffic noise you say
    [12:18:42 AM] Blake Smith: you can't fool me stone roses
    [12:18:54 AM] Michael Witt: That's the last track, we're not there yet
    [12:18:56 AM] Justin Preston: I hear a bass
    [12:19:15 AM] Michael Witt: I've been requesting this song in rock band forever
    [12:19:39 AM] Michael Witt: It's like a checklist to see if the instruments are there
    [12:20:23 AM] Blake Smith: that was just the warm up
    [12:20:29 AM] Michael Witt: I used this line in a painting "I don't have to sell my soul, he's already in me"
    [12:20:51 AM] Michael Witt: Many of their songs have a theme of soul selling
    [12:21:02 AM] Justin Preston: Was it a gay pornographic painting?
    [12:21:11 AM] Blake Smith: you wish
    [12:21:34 AM] Michael Witt: But this is quite the opening track. They already made their mission statement that they want to be adored.
    [12:22:01 AM] Justin Preston: Sounds desperate
    [12:22:18 AM] Michael Witt: Yes I do adore you Ian Brown
    [12:22:27 AM] Michael Witt: He's got great solo work
    [12:22:35 AM] Michael Witt: Spoiler this band only has 2 albums
    [12:22:49 AM] Justin Preston: Alright so far. Bit repetitive
    [12:22:52 AM] Blake Smith: what happened after that?
    [12:22:56 AM] Blake Smith: they break up?
    [12:22:59 AM] Justin Preston: She Bangs The Drums
    [12:23:10 AM] Michael Witt: This is supposed to be their big early hit
    [12:23:17 AM] Justin Preston: This one was in GH3 but I don't think I ever played it
    [12:23:17 AM] Blake Smith: more bass
    [12:23:27 AM] Michael Witt: It was a bonus track and a cover
    [12:23:56 AM] Michael Witt: I love that bass
    [12:25:45 AM] Justin Preston: It sounds like it could be a hit
    [12:26:17 AM] Blake Smith: yeah it's not bad
    [12:26:32 AM] Michael Witt: This album started off britpop and shoegazing
    [12:26:44 AM] Michael Witt: It has its roots deep
    [12:26:52 AM] Justin Preston: Elephant Stone
    [12:26:56 AM] Blake Smith: i hear the term shoegaze all the time but i still have no idea what it is
    [12:27:36 AM] Michael Witt: It's like the alternative version of psychedelic
    [12:27:57 AM] Blake Smith: ah i see
    [12:28:13 AM] Michael Witt: Like Lush, My Bloody Valentine, etc
    [12:28:20 AM] Blake Smith: well i like it so far, it's pretty chill
    [12:28:25 AM] Michael Witt: It feels like there's an enviornment to the music
    [12:28:37 AM] Michael Witt: Shoe gazing is really chill
    [12:28:45 AM] Justin Preston: I get My Bloody Valentine confused with Bullet for my Valentine
    [12:28:59 AM] Michael Witt: Big mistake
    [12:29:04 AM] Justin Preston: Yeah
    [12:29:17 AM] Blake Smith: i thought you said My Bloody Valentine was screamo?
    [12:29:39 AM] Justin Preston: I was thinking of Bullet for my
    [12:29:58 AM] Justin Preston: Waterfall
    [12:30:02 AM] Michael Witt: If you want less ambient guitars I suggest Stone Roses second album. It's a lot harder
    [12:30:28 AM] Blake Smith: this is good enough to make me continue sometime
    [12:30:37 AM] Michael Witt: One of my favorite guitar parts on the album
    [12:31:39 AM] Justin Preston: I was into the Stone when she was into the Roses
    [12:31:42 AM] Michael Witt: Wait I missed the part about Justin shooting waterfalls
    [12:31:56 AM] Michael Witt: Costello music reference I see
    [12:32:02 AM] Michael Witt: Don't stop!!!
    [12:32:05 AM] Justin Preston: It's all I can think of
    [12:32:22 AM] Justin Preston: Don't stop didn't start yet
    [12:32:24 AM] Michael Witt: I love this, it's like the guitars are going backwards
    [12:32:38 AM] Justin Preston: Am I far behind?
    [12:32:53 AM] Justin Preston: I'm still in the middle of Waterfall
    [12:32:59 AM] Michael Witt: Don't stop is the song right?
    [12:33:16 AM] Justin Preston: Its the next one
    [12:33:16 AM] Blake Smith: yeah after waterfall
    [12:33:26 AM] Blake Smith: about 1 minute left for me
    [12:33:38 AM] Michael Witt: I thought we were contining through waterfall, mine ended
    [12:33:38 AM] Justin Preston: Yeah same
    [12:33:48 AM] Michael Witt: What the hell is up with this recording
    [12:34:05 AM] Michael Witt: Tell me when you get to don't stop, I'll refocus
    [12:34:09 AM] Blake Smith: how long was your waterfall?
    [12:34:39 AM] Blake Smith: ok i paused
    [12:34:40 AM] Justin Preston: Paused
    [12:35:20 AM] Michael Witt: I don't know what happened.
    [12:35:33 AM] Michael Witt: I think my elephant stone was shorter so it screwed it up
    [12:35:46 AM] Blake Smith: rookies
    [12:36:06 AM] Michael Witt: Tell me when you get to don't stop
    [12:36:15 AM] Justin Preston: Ready when you are
    [12:36:19 AM] Michael Witt: Just so you know I love the exit to Waterfall
    [12:36:25 AM] Blake Smith: alright lets recount

    [12:36:35 AM] Blake Smith: GO
    [12:36:42 AM] Justin Preston: Don't Stop
    [12:36:52 AM] Justin Preston: Backwards
    [12:36:52 AM] Michael Witt: Here are the backwards sounding guitars
    [12:36:53 AM] Blake Smith: but we already did
    [12:37:09 AM] Justin Preston: Backwards music always freaks me out a bit
    [12:37:25 AM] Michael Witt: A lot of people are put off by this song, I love it
    [12:37:51 AM] Michael Witt: This intro just has so much life to it
    [12:38:13 AM] Justin Preston: I'm all for a unique sound and this has one
    [12:38:27 AM] Blake Smith: yeah this is cool
    [12:38:39 AM] Michael Witt: This makes me think of the game Braid
    [12:38:56 AM] Justin Preston: Freaking Braid
    [12:39:04 AM] Justin Preston: I still haven't played it
    [12:39:05 AM] Michael Witt: I love that game!
    [12:39:32 AM] Michael Witt: Is there a use for being useless
    [12:39:40 AM] Justin Preston: I was hoping it would go on sale during the holidays but Steam just kept putting the same 10 games on sale
    [12:40:30 AM] Justin Preston: It sounds like he's singing backwards too
    [12:40:38 AM] Justin Preston: It's so strange
    [12:40:44 AM] Justin Preston: I like it
    [12:40:58 AM] Michael Witt: Told you this song is great!
    [12:41:52 AM] Michael Witt: Looks like it's time for a song that goes in the normal direction
    [12:41:57 AM] Justin Preston: Bye Bye Badman
    [12:42:13 AM] Justin Preston: One direction
    [12:42:36 AM] Michael Witt: This song is like the weirdest lullabye ever
    [12:42:49 AM] Michael Witt: Blake, you there?
    [12:42:58 AM] Michael Witt: Blake
    [12:43:01 AM] Justin Preston: I was just about to ask
    [12:43:06 AM] Michael Witt: Blake!!!
    [12:43:10 AM] Michael Witt: BLAKE!!!
    [12:43:15 AM] Blake Smith: i'm here
    [12:43:18 AM] Blake Smith: sorry zoning out
    [12:43:30 AM] Michael Witt: I see that.
    [12:43:39 AM] Justin Preston: I thought your internet crapped out
    [12:43:41 AM] Justin Preston: Again
    [12:43:44 AM] Michael Witt: Poon in the other browser does that to us all
    [12:43:54 AM] Justin Preston: Focus man!
    [12:44:10 AM] Blake Smith: i just can't think of anything to say about it
    [12:44:17 AM] Michael Witt: But big boobs are just a tab away
    [12:44:23 AM] Justin Preston: It's alright
    [12:44:44 AM] Michael Witt: This reminds a lot of the Wonder Stuff
    [12:45:07 AM] Michael Witt: Very, very strange band
    [12:45:08 AM] Justin Preston: Wonder bread?
    [12:45:17 AM] Blake Smith: Wonder Twins?
    [12:45:31 AM] Justin Preston: Form of ICE UNICYCLE
    [12:45:36 AM] Michael Witt: Wonder Stuff had their prominent time in the 80s
    [12:45:50 AM] Blake Smith: i liked that one alot
    [12:46:02 AM] Justin Preston: Elizabeth My Dear
    [12:46:07 AM] Michael Witt: It's alright it doesn't challeneg anything like the others
    [12:46:25 AM] Michael Witt: 53 seconds of saddness
    [12:46:28 AM] Justin Preston: Parsley Sage Rosemary and Thyme
    [12:46:42 AM] Michael Witt: hahaha
    [12:46:48 AM] Michael Witt: Hello darkness my old friend
    [12:47:00 AM] Justin Preston: (Song for My) Sugar Spun Sister
    [12:48:13 AM] Michael Witt: Really the point of this kind of music is enviornment. It's not really driving, its not trying to be overly chaotic. It's there to enjoy your time with
    [12:48:46 AM] Justin Preston: I get that
    [12:48:53 AM] Blake Smith: that's why i'm just falling into it
    [12:48:58 AM] Justin Preston: It's just for kicking back and enjoying
    [12:49:20 AM] Michael Witt: Yeah, its the cultural response to hair metal of the time
    [12:49:47 AM] Michael Witt: You actually hear these guys quite a bit in soundtracks, because they fill this purpose
    [12:50:06 AM] Blake Smith: yeah i could see that
    [12:50:27 AM] Michael Witt: This is gonna be a bit jarring going from this to White stripes
    [12:50:34 AM] Justin Preston: Made of Stone
    [12:50:44 AM] Justin Preston: Especially early White Stripes
    [12:50:47 AM] Michael Witt: Did your made of stone just start
    [12:50:53 AM] Michael Witt: I'm 30 seconds in
    [12:50:53 AM] Justin Preston: Yeah
    [12:51:11 AM] Blake Smith: i'm at 45
    [12:51:15 AM] Michael Witt: Me to
    [12:51:23 AM] Michael Witt: 1:00
    [12:51:27 AM] Justin Preston: I just got there when Blake said
    [12:51:35 AM] Blake Smith: yeah we're find
    [12:51:37 AM] Michael Witt: just checking.
    [12:51:38 AM] Blake Smith: *fine
    [12:51:44 AM] Michael Witt: I'm trying to avoid disaster again
    [12:51:59 AM] Justin Preston: Blake bakes a cake
    [12:52:18 AM] Blake Smith: i wish i had cake
    [12:52:32 AM] Michael Witt: But Cake's not on the rolling stones set
    [12:52:39 AM] Justin Preston: Blake rakes near a lake
    [12:52:49 AM] Justin Preston: Cake should be on the list
    [12:52:51 AM] Michael Witt: Mike bikes while his tikes hike
    [12:53:09 AM] Blake Smith: then he's hit by a truck
    [12:53:10 AM] Justin Preston: Justin is... dusting?
    [12:53:10 AM] Michael Witt: Justin Bustin Gust of wins
    [12:53:27 AM] Justin Preston: That doesn't make sense!
    [12:53:49 AM] Justin Preston: Wait... farts. I get it
    [12:53:55 AM] Michael Witt: Justin bustin my balls on nonsensical rhymes
    [12:54:41 AM] Justin Preston: Shoot Your Own
    [12:54:42 AM] Michael Witt: It's these moments of brilliance you get to hear their guitar player shine
    [12:54:53 AM] Justin Preston: Nope
    [12:54:58 AM] Justin Preston: Shoot You Down
    [12:55:06 AM] Justin Preston: I am clearly tired
    [12:55:14 AM] Michael Witt: Shoot You Down
    [12:55:36 AM] Blake Smith: what happened to mmb?
    [12:55:38 AM] Michael Witt: So... It was just me.
    [12:55:46 AM] Justin Preston: Did you guys leave me?
    [12:55:47 AM] Michael Witt: I dunno should we stop?
    [12:55:59 AM] Justin Preston: **** you did
    [12:56:06 AM] Blake Smith: i don't know usually i'm the one that leaves
    [12:56:10 AM] Justin Preston: What do I do!!!!!????!?
    [12:56:20 AM] Blake Smith: there he is
    [12:56:22 AM] Michael Witt: Well I'm here, the power is yours
    [12:56:32 AM] Justin Preston: Hey you guys are back
    [12:56:37 AM] Michael Witt: You left us
    [12:56:43 AM] Justin Preston: I missed ya
    [12:56:46 AM] Michael Witt: Your internet be screwed
    [12:57:04 AM] Michael Witt: The most nonviolent song about shooting
    [12:57:15 AM] Michael Witt: Of course its about heroin, but that's another point
    [12:57:40 AM] Blake Smith: there's alot of great songs about heroin
    [12:57:46 AM] Justin Preston: I was here the whole time being funny.
    [12:57:52 AM] Michael Witt: Half of these songs are abot heroin
    [12:58:24 AM] Michael Witt: The opening line of She Bangs the Drum is about hitting a needle
    [12:58:48 AM] Blake Smith: i don't approve of the habit but it makes for some fine music
    [12:59:00 AM] Justin Preston: This is the One
    [12:59:06 AM] Michael Witt: Wait till you get to the Velvet Underground
    [12:59:23 AM] Blake Smith: i know that one quite well
    [12:59:39 AM] Justin Preston: Well I dont
    [12:59:41 AM] Justin Preston: No spoilers!
    [12:59:44 AM] Michael Witt: I'm glad both their albums at least made the list
    [12:59:54 AM] Blake Smith: you will mmb
    [1:00:07 AM] Michael Witt: But Andy Warhol used to inject people with heroin at Velvet Underground shows
    [1:00:12 AM] Justin Preston: All I know is that there is a banana involved
    [1:00:40 AM] Blake Smith: Heroin is easily my favorite song by them
    [1:00:43 AM] Michael Witt: Actually wait it wasn't heroin it was an amphedomine
    [1:01:09 AM] Michael Witt: My favorite is Who Loves the Sun
    [1:01:20 AM] Michael Witt: But you can see thei influence in Stone Roses
    [1:02:33 AM] Michael Witt: The repressed energy of this guitarist is amazing. You can feel him hold back and then go all out.
    [1:02:41 AM] Justin Preston: So Witt, how goes the healing?
    [1:02:47 AM] Blake Smith: i love this pick up here
    [1:02:58 AM] Michael Witt: I'm learning to type fast with a hand and a half
    [1:03:34 AM] Justin Preston: Did Mavis Beacon teach you?
    [1:03:39 AM] Michael Witt: Finger typing for the win
    [1:04:01 AM] Justin Preston: I Am The Resurrection
    [1:04:01 AM] Michael Witt: do you know the neemy
    [1:04:05 AM] Michael Witt: enemy
    [1:04:11 AM] Michael Witt: the enemy
    [1:04:13 AM] Justin Preston: Yeah really :P
    [1:04:20 AM] Michael Witt: Oh wait wrong song
    [1:04:39 AM] Blake Smith: couple of long ones to end it
    [1:05:05 AM] Michael Witt: It was supposed to end with this song
    [1:05:21 AM] Michael Witt: Then they had their second album called "The Second Coming"
    [1:05:25 AM] Michael Witt: It was perfect
    [1:05:31 AM] Michael Witt: Fools gold ruined it
    [1:06:10 AM] Blake Smith: well i'll just hope the song is good enough to make up for it
    [1:06:44 AM] Michael Witt: I'll let you be the judge of that
    [1:07:10 AM] Michael Witt: But I love when you can hear this guitarist come out. The second album showcases his talents much better.
    [1:07:37 AM] Blake Smith: he sounds a little restricted
    [1:07:51 AM] Michael Witt: For sound purposes yes
    [1:07:51 AM] Blake Smith: but you can tell he's pretty great
    [1:07:54 AM] Justin Preston: Oooh
    [1:08:04 AM] Michael Witt: He's really clean
    [1:08:14 AM] Blake Smith: yeah
    [1:09:14 AM] Michael Witt: I'm reading into this and I forgot John Squire played the guitars. He and Ian Brown broke up the band
    [1:09:41 AM] Michael Witt: John Squire was tired of holding back
    [1:09:44 AM] Justin Preston: This is still the same song? Wow.
    [1:09:49 AM] Justin Preston: I like it
    [1:09:54 AM] Blake Smith: same
    [1:10:14 AM] Michael Witt: This is why it was such a wonderful song to end it on.
    [1:10:23 AM] Michael Witt: It seems like it ended then resurrected itself
    [1:11:03 AM] Justin Preston: That it did
    [1:11:20 AM] Justin Preston: BTW, HAPPY BIRTHDAY WITT
    [1:11:50 AM] Blake Smith: oh yeah forgot about that
    [1:12:02 AM] Michael Witt: Thank you, my wife still hasn't told me the "surprise" yet but whatever
    [1:12:10 AM] Justin Preston: Fools Gold
    [1:12:43 AM] Blake Smith: that was a good drum break
    [1:12:48 AM] Justin Preston: The real surprise will be when it comes out black.
    [1:13:07 AM] Blake Smith: but i'm not black
    [1:13:24 AM] Michael Witt: This was added in later for the US release. Much like the White album by the Beatles
    [1:13:39 AM] Michael Witt: Oh black babies sure
    [1:13:41 AM] Justin Preston: It seems like a cool bonus track
    [1:14:17 AM] Michael Witt: It's one of their more popular songs much like Train in Vain is one Clash's most popular despite being a bonus song
    [1:14:38 AM] Justin Preston: Only problem was that the last one sounded like a better album closer
    [1:14:48 AM] Michael Witt: Exactly
    [1:14:51 AM] Blake Smith: yeah
    [1:15:00 AM] Michael Witt: It made sense in the artistic aspect
    [1:15:22 AM] Michael Witt: If you're gonna compare your band to Jesus at least rearrange the album to make it make sense
    [1:17:23 AM] Blake Smith: more great guitar jams
    [1:17:53 AM] Michael Witt: Squire wrote most the songs on the second album which explains why its more guitar heavy.
    [1:18:11 AM] Blake Smith: ah i see
    [1:19:06 AM] Michael Witt: It's like a jam band, but with more controlled chaos
    [1:19:12 AM] Michael Witt: In your face Phish!
    [1:21:28 AM] Blake Smith: coming to a close
    [1:21:50 AM] Justin Preston: Good album but will require more listens
    [1:21:55 AM] Michael Witt: It's drawn out
    [1:22:16 AM] Michael Witt: But as I said, check out their 2nd album
    [1:22:23 AM] Blake Smith: well that's it for Stone Roses
    [1:22:28 AM] Justin Preston: Yeah I really like Love Spreads
    [1:22:40 AM] Michael Witt: Well thanks for having me stop by. I'll see you gents later
    [1:23:18 AM] Blake Smith: no problem witt, we'll call you if we do Jimmy Eat World
    [1:23:28 AM] Justin Preston: I'm giving top 3 to Don't Stop, I Am The Resurrection, and Waterfall
    [1:23:42 AM] Michael Witt: Actually I'm really interested in the Modern Lovers and LCD Soundsystem
    [1:23:54 AM] Justin Preston: Sure
    [1:24:08 AM] Justin Preston: I hope we make it that far
    [1:24:13 AM] Michael Witt: But my favorites are about the same as Justin's
    [1:24:34 AM] Michael Witt: Sounds of Silver is incredible, Modern Lovers are weird and fun
    [1:24:45 AM] Blake Smith: I was gonna go with I am the Ressurrection, Fools Gold, and Waterfall
    [1:25:01 AM] Michael Witt: No love for Don't Stop?
    [1:25:18 AM] Justin Preston: I really liked the crazy backwards sound of it
    [1:25:25 AM] Blake Smith: it was good
    [1:25:30 AM] Blake Smith: just not top 3 good
    [1:25:49 AM] Michael Witt: OK, but I'm off for real, stay in touch.
    [1:25:57 AM] Blake Smith: cya
    [1:25:59 AM] Justin Preston: Oh uh, lets see... I'll go with 7/10 I think
    [1:26:10 AM] Blake Smith: same for me i think
    [1:26:12 AM] Justin Preston: Bye Witt. Good luck tomorrow
    [1:26:26 AM] Blake Smith: nothing overly amazing but a few gems for sure
    [1:26:26 AM] Justin Preston: With the surgery and all
    [1:26:45 AM] Michael Witt: Yeah I almost forgot about that... Almost.

    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

    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

    Italicised = Should not be.
