The List, 2008, #100-91

And so it begins: the first ten of the 2008 My Favorite 100 Albums list. Something like 17 new entries, and nothing’s in the same spot as it was two years ago. Very exciting.

I rather like a lot of the videos I found for these albums (all 100). So be sure to check them out, if you can.

(also, for those paying close attention, note that this is a different 100-91 than was posted on Friday afternoon. things changed.)

100
Polvo 1992
Cor-Crane Secret
Polvo makes dissonant math rock as catchy as can be hoped for.
99
Stevie Ray Vaughan 1983
Texas Flood
Ricocheting around the blues box.
98
The Flaming Lips 1995
Clouds Taste Metallic
Playful and raucous psychedelic garage grunge with lyrics from outer space.
97
Black Sabbath 1971
Paranoid
Ozzy is the laziest lyricist ever. But everything else is fun.
96
Rolling Stones 1969
Let It Bleed
There will always be space in my in-dash CD-player, when you need a little coke and sympathy.
95
Peter Gabriel 1986
So
Such pretty songs. Lift your boombox high and proud.
94
Belly 1993
Star
Remember this, the next time you feed a tree.
93
Rogue Wave 2005
Out Of The Shadow
Neo-folkish lo-fi psyechedelic pop. Sewn up, perfect.
92
Scud Mountain Boys 1996
Massachusets
Country-flavored indie-pop melancholy.
91
REM 1982
Chronic Town
1,000,000; Stumble; Wolves, Lower; Gardening At Night; Carnival of Sorts

For extra geekiness, here’s a little histogram that tracks the number of records on this list, so far, by the year they were released (in five-year intervals):
