How has De La Soul is Dead managed to escape all of these lists?

Loved the Commitments movie and album. The UK class wars illustrated thru Northern Soul. *Sparkle* for the soccer terrace set.

So we're still on for my "Girlfriend is the real Nevermind" piece?

Damn, forgot what a great song Sunless Saturday is...haven't listened to that in awhile! I know Skid Row are remembered as part of the whole poodle-hair-metal thing grunge killed, but STTG is actually a pretty heavy album.

Nice to see Mr Bungle + Death (RIP Chuck) get a mention.

Rush WERE a great band...until the late 80's hit.

"The Commitments"...uh, no.

And I still love Christina Amphlett...I don't care what she looks like nowadays.

18. Teenage Fanclub, Bandwagonesque is the only good record on this list.

This is crap because Human and Slave to the Grind are on this list.

I always wish Mariah had named that album "Emoticons."

You are not ready for my 800-word treatise on Genesis's We Can't Dance.

 I totally rocked out to "Sunless Saturday" and "Poundcake" this morning because of this post. And I may have been wearing the same plaid pajama pants as Sammy Hagar in that video.

The Spin Doctors are about to do some shows playing Pocket Full of Kryptonite in its entirety, so I assume you've already got a thinkpiece in the pipeline about that.

Serious answer, though: De La Soul Is Dead, The Black Album and Blue Lines are probably the most epochal albums that I haven't seen any deluxe reissues or critical reevaluations of in the past few months.

You'd think someone would have written a Cooleyhighharmony piece given the prominence of the opening to "Uhh Ahh" these days!
