491. All The Young Dudes, Mott the Hoople
I really liked this. It opens with a decent cover of "Sweet Jane", and the rest of the album continues in a really nice way. I was expecting the annoying arrangements that effect the glam rock albums of Lou Reed and Iggy Pop, but this one never suffers. Good stuff, the Hoople!
492. Vitalogy, Pearl Jam
I always liked this one from Pearl Jam. They start to move away from the grunge stuff to more straight ahead rock. A good mix of songs on this with a couple of personal faves (Spin The Black Circle and Corduroy, in case you were curious.) Recommended.
493. That's The Way Of The World, Earth, Wind and Fire
Decent enough R&B/Funk album, but also forgettable.
494. She's So Unusual, Cyndi Lauper
This should of been awful, but it's actually really good. Not really a bad song on it, and "Time After Time" is really fantastic.
495. New Day Rising, Husker Du
A band I always heard of, yet never listened too. Certainly has the 80's alternative sound down pat, but in a good way that didn't make me hate it. I'll listen again.
496. Destroyer, Kiss
Goofy and retarded? Yup, but still a good time!
497. Yo! Bum Rush The Show, Public Enemy
This is just weird. Chuck D does a lot of posturing, as opposed to the politics they are know for. Makes for a rather surreal Public Enemy Album.
498. Tres Hombres, ZZ Top
Much better then "Eliminator". They have a great blues rock sound on this one. Good stuff.
499. Born Under A Bad Sign, Albert King
A not so great blues album. when it's good it's really good, but too many songs have a bit of a pop polish to them. Blech! I like DA BLUUUUUZ!
500. Touch, Eurythmics
Great singing, crappy 80's production... the top 500 fizzles out in 80's hell.
And that is all! Would I do it again? Of course I would! I'm a masochist and love lists! That said, I'm catching up on non-list music. Oh "Black Rebel Motorcycle Club" how I loved you! And you too Regina Specktor! "Deerhoof", I might just marry you! But that's a different entry... that I doubt I'll be arsed to writing. XD
Thanks to the 5 people who actually read this mess of a project! Hope you found the odd new album out of it!
