I’m not entirely sure how, but somehow I got on the mailing list for 89.3FM The Current radio station. Today, they sent out an email where people could vote on their 10 essential albums for a countdown of the 893 greatest albums of all time during a Spring Membership Drive. My list wasn’t in the most specific of orders, but I wanted to accent albums that deserve as high a placing as possible. I left off such greats as OK Computer, Bat Out of Hell, Metallica (The Black Album), etc. in favor of some of the prides of my vinyl record collection.
Here’s the list I gave them:
- The Beatles – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
- Violent Femmes – Violent Femmes
- The Clash – The Clash
- Weezer – Pinkerton
- Radiohead – The Bends
- The Ramones – The Ramones
- Weezer – Weezer (The Blue Album)
- Nine Inch Nails – The Downward Spiral
- The Clash – Londong Calling
- Nirvana – Nevermind
Cast your vote at this address.
EDIT: They started playing their list May 5 at 8AM CST. You can view the list so far here: 893 Greatest Albums
