If Born to Run and Highway 61 are only making it this year, I need to see what you guys put on there last year. Chances are I won't approve of those two ever being left off.
Tons of excellent albums have to be left off when putting together small lists like these. Just because this year's picks didn't make it into last year's list, that doesn't place any of those albums above these.

Pinkerton and And Out Come The Wolves are definitely classics for me. Each time I listen to them it takes me back to my younger days.

Some good choices. I would have liked to see Illmatic or 36 Chambers included in the hip hop part, but I guess those two are better suited for this site.
I was actually going to write one for Illmatic, I just never got around to it. It'll be on the list next year!

So I checked out the Galaxy 500 song, cuz I had never heard of them. It's so far out of time. Sounds like a group of 13 year olds in their dad's garage jamming for the first time. Is the whole album like that?
Yeah, it is. Those lagging drums sort of accentuate the whole lazy feel, and they are characteristic of the record as a whole.

Had this list wound up like last year's, I would have chosen something more in line with the accepted AP bands, but when people chose stuff like Springsteen and Kanye, I thought I'd add even more to the diversity with something that's underappreciated around these parts. That's a long list, to be sure, but On Fire wasn't a random choice-- I still play it all the time.

There are a lot of complaints you could throw at it. Wareham is definitely a vocalist of "limited" ability. "Strange" has lyrics about the profound subject of Twinkies. From a technical perspective, it definitely doesn't conform to standards and probably doesn't succeed on its compositional merits. It's a record I love, not in spite of its "flaws" but because of them.

Out of Thrice's entire catalog, Illusion of Safety made the list? I thought TAITA or anything after it would make it for sure.

I always say there are two schools of kids...those who started with Illusion and those who started with Artist...for me it was Illusion...I was just learning how to play guitar at the time and all I wanted to do was shred...that album was like my Cowboys From Hell...

Excellent list for the most part. I don't listen to Rancid that much anymore though.

Ah yeah I gotcha. At this moment I would have picked Beggars but I guess it's a bit too early for that haha. Good to see material from the band on the list either way. I've listened to Illusion and Identity Crisis a few times before but never gave them as much time as Thrice's other records.

Beggars is stellar...I like that the band has such an extensive catalog at this point that it seems everyone has "that" album...that speaks volumes about a band and their longevity...and the fact that there isn't "one" album that everyone reverts back to...

Incredible list, at least from what I've heard before. Looks like I've got a few albums to check out.
