Got to love anything that ranks Summerteeth highly. I'm hoping a few of these lists it's been on recently can push the album back into the top 500.

27) Cibo Matto - Stereo Type A
28) Quasi - Field Studies
29) The Dismemberment Plan - Emergency & I
30) Sam Prekop - Sam Prekop

I tried to find older yearly tops but it seems like 1998 was their first one (I hoped to find one for 1997 to help Perfect From Now On climb in AM top 3000... well, at least Keep it Like a Secret will get a push)

And picking NMH as 1998's best album right away but Hello Nasty 4 years later seems like the opposite of what most critics did !
