Q: Ten Terrible Records by Great Artists (2005)

Can anyone post this list? I can't find it on the internet anywhere. All I know is that U2's Miami and R.E.M.'s Shiny Happy People are on the list (although they shouldn't be.)

Re: Errors in the 2015 Update

I'm not sure which is correct here, but A.R. Kane's 69 is given a score of 9/10 by the "Spin's Book of Alternative Albums." However in Simon Reynolds' own blog, the score that the book gave it is given as 10/10. http://reynoldsretro.blogspot.co.uk/2008/06/ar-kane-interview-melody-maker-jul...

Re: BBC Radio Devon - Devon's Top 50 Albums (2004)

Lack of Radiohead perhaps a bit suspicious (considering we have Automatic for the People), Velvet Underground also, but not Kanye, whose first album was only two months old at the time (not that that stopped the six month old Country Life from getting to #22, but there's no hip hop in this list at a...

Re: Albums that critics call groundbreaking/innovative/revolutionary that don't appear in lists

Elaborating on my two choices, A Whisky Kiss was called groundbreaking by The Living Tradition for its own "acid croft" kinda thing going on, whilst EastWind's combination of Irish and Bulgarian folk was "considered revolutionary" (- Wiki) As for my namesake of Stump, I've seen Q...

BBC Radio Devon - Devon's Top 50 Albums (2004)

Is this proof that Devonians and Radio 2 are the same thing? Anyway, this was a BBC Radio Devon poll from April 2004 that asked the folk (folk, get it?) of Devon to name their all time favourite albums for a top 50 poll. This was that poll. Show of Hands' Country Life at no. 22 is a great touch that...

Pitchfork's "A Feature About Nothing: The 1990s in Lists" (2010)

Tucked away on Pitchfork are numerous lists such as "The Worst Record Covers of All Time" and (formerly) "The Top 50 Most Common Used CDs", however this feature from 2010 is literally a list of lists concerning 90s stuff, mostly trivial and irrelevant stuff. However I don't know ...

Tom Ewing's Top 100 Singles of the 1990s

For FreakyTrigger, Tom Ewing (FreakyTrigger founder, written for others such as Pitchfork) wrote a list of his top 100 singles of the 1990s. This was in 1999. IIRC (from a blogpost that Ned Raggett wrote), this list was a partner with Ned Raggett's top 136 albums of the 90s - Ned did the album list ...
