My Top 1000

Not necessarily meaning I like these choices, but 'creatively', I find them unique and guilty pleasures, I can't just quite discard

***********UPDATE*************

Just a reminder to everyone who stops in and looks at this list. Everything from 280 up currently is where I get serious. Everything from 290 down, for now, is just me f***ing around. Gimme a break, 1,000 albums is hard number to fill, I'm still in the process of arranging everything, re-listening to a few things, while adding new music, and remembering previous music I listened to that I might have forgotten all about--which isn't a good sign I know--but again, cut me some slack. A list of this size ain't easy!

Significant Other - Limp Bizkit
THE TRAGEDY OF BIZKIT, THE 'VANILLA ICE' BAND OF THE LATE '90s TO EARLY '00s, is that a betrayal to their original sound, stems from a creative style that wasn't all that appealing to begin with. I never quite got Durst's speedy rise to fame and appeal during this era. I will cop to the fact that I actually purchased this album when it was fresh and yes, some of the tracks are hard to resist tapping your feet to. But once the novelty wears off, what are you left with?...

This is the sophomore album to the Bizkit quest. And for it, the band decided to slow their rhythm down, and focus more on the trend they ultimately started by producing vinyl scratch beats to heavy metal music. Making Significant Other more or less an unstoppable commercial juggernaut.

There's really not much to be said about Significant Other other than the immaturity to Durst's freestyle verse, the overbearing ghetto-gearhead male aggression to the band's style; that used to fuel the hatred of the kind of heavy muscled kids that beat kids like me up in school. Perhaps the biggest tragedy of Other's legacy--thus the reason I even bother to discuss it, in a list supposedly of all my music favs over time--is that the worthless album happens to contain once of the most underrated songs of the entire '90s music era, "Re-arranged". Indeed, this is one of the most powerful songs I ever listened to, which almost comes as a slap to the face that it's forced to be smothered under so much other ilk, Limp produced en mass toward the early start of the 21st Century.

OK, SO, PLEASE DON'T JUDGE RASHLY ON MY TASTES--at least, not without a little context first. So, this is a remake of a list I was trying to keep up with a while back, I've covered Television, Movies, and I even tried to keep up with Literature. I want to personally thank and appreciate all the thanks and votes and comments me friends and readers have left me on all those other lists. This is just yet a new genre I want to try and tackle since my musical vocabulary/encyclopedian pallet I'll bet is surely not as refined as others are. To those whom may cringe at my choices, "what d'ya want from me, I don't listen to a lot of new [or old] music?!"

These are just my personal choices of albums I've listened to--thus far--over the years and I will try my best to put things in order of rank but for now, I think it might be a little out of order, and messy.

These are my own personal selections for albums that have affected me, and thus, are the kind of choices I think should the human race be fated to tackle a nuclear holocaust, and need to jettison our fat-privileged-asses out toward Mars or Jupiter or something... what albums would you think we ought to take with us? To preserve our musical heritage and culture...

Ok, so maybe that sounds a little too ambitious for the choices I got here but nevertheless, I will update whenever I refine my pallet. If anyone wants to make any suggestions of music they think I ought to listen to, or albums they want to see make the cut--please, please, comment or PM me. I can't promise I'll like everything you send me, but I WILL listen to everything that gets passed to me.

Amazing list man! I am going to have to check some of these out. Completely agree with you on Mellon Collie, one of the greatest albums ever.

Thanks Great Divide. Yep! Mellon Collie was certainly a classic that fueled my adolescence. And thankfully, holds up to the test of time all these years later. Will post my thoughts on it as soon as I get the chance.
