I wanted to use this, the 100th post on my blog, to list my 100 favourite albums of all time, so goaded was I by Woebot in the pre-amble to his. After much consideration, I decided that, even if I agreed with a word he said, I still couldn't do it. One of the main snags I hit was that the list would have to include quite a few albums that I was embarrassed to admit to liking - albums that are important to me personally but often seem shameful in the context of the outside world, for one reason or another. Then I decided that THESE were precisely the albums that I should be hipping y'all to.
Here's a random selection...
The Boo Radleys - "Giant Steps"
Kate Bush - "The Hounds of Love"
Happy Monday - "Squirrel, G-Man and the 24 Hour Party People..."
Sebadoh - "Sebadoh III"
Ween - "Pure Guava"
And so the list goes on. I can't keep it all straight in my head. I can't even make it seem cool. I certainly can't pretend that it's universal or forever.
