The List, 2008, #90-81

This is the second of installment (of ten) in the 2008 edition of my Top 100 All-time Favorite Records.

90
The Beatles 1965
Rubber Soul
Remember "She Loves You"? We’re not that band any more.
89
The Doors 1967
Strange Days
When the still sea conspires an armor, and her sullen and aborted currents breed tiny monsters, the rest of the record is still OK.
88
Green Day 1995
Dookie
Bite your lip and close your eyes.
87
Replacements 1984
Let It Be
We could be great! But that sounds like work. Hey, look, Gary’s Got A Boner!
86
Pink Floyd 1971
Meddle
Such a nice little record.
85
Cowboy Junkies 1996
Lay It Down
Fifty minutes of that beautiful lonely sinking feeling.
84
Sonic Youth 1987
Sister
Would be SY’s best record, if their next wasn’t even better.
83
U2 1987
The Joshua Tree
Still sounds great, though overplayed.
82
The Cure 1981
Happily Ever After
Faith + Seventeen Seconds. It’s a double-shot of mope.
81
The Cure 1989
Disintegration
Oh, it’s all so sad and monumental and bittersweet and, oh no, now I want to cry.

And the histogram now looks like this:

    Just had a wonderful tour through some great old Cure videos. I’d never even thought to look on youtube for them. Thanks :).
