Only 4-5 albums I don't like and a few of my absolute favorites ever. Great list but I guess I don't understand the criteria for an album to be included in the list.

Thanks to all the AP staff for making this happen, I really liked this feature.

Pretty simple: albums we really like that we feel have stood a test of time. Something we think most rock fans should have in their record collection. Its not so much us guessing what the community as a whole would like, but it goes without saying that our tastes will overlap since we are also part of this community.

I would take away a few of these and add some others.

I would seriously put 'Leaving Through The Window' up there. My all time favorite record.
agreed lol

On Letting Go was just Juturna pt. II
Wasn't anything special enough about it.
I felt like the whole album just bled together (with only 1 or 2 standout tracks) with a few songs that ended abruptly and awkwardly as if they didn't know how to finish it.
yeah, at first i felt that way. i was actually disappointed by it at first because i felt like it went nowhere from juturna. but, later, as i have listened to it constantly. i can say it's one of my top favorites, because of it's amazing lyrics and vocals. also, their timing in their songs is spot-on. i get chills every single time i listen to the album, but that's just for me, so i didn't really expect it to be in this list.

another point i have to make about this list (and i hope i'm not the only one) is that a lot of these albums do not have good vocalists. (i.e. bright eyes, modest mouse, cursive, at the drive-in, blink 182, THURSDAY)

Would've put Americana in there, Dookie and Bleed American/Salt, Sweat, Sugar, or any JEW albums in fact.
(Not that I particularly like Offspring or Green Day, but classics.)
Definitely would've taken out Thursday.

And if it were up to me I probably would've added ...Is a Real Boy, just because it's good.

With that list, this site should lose the "AbsolutePunk" name for a month. Change it to "AbsoluteIndie" or "AbsoluteEmo" or even "AbsoluteMusic."

There is nothing PUNK about that list.
What is this? 2003?

Ah so it's a combination of individual submissions and not a cumulative list?

Progression Through Unlearning needs way more love than it gets.
