Basically I have decided to tone it down with my search for new music. After listening to so many albums from the top of the charts here and finding many classics in the '1001 albums...' book I'm going to take a step back and focus those energies onto different things in life. All the new music I will listen to will be recent/new stuff instead of hidden gems from the past.

So my question you is: Have I missed anything important? Is there something a wannabe rock legend has had to have listened to? Anything I shouldn't have left unheard? Speak now or forever hold your peace Cool

Here is a list of albums in the top 500 I haven't listened to:

117 - Slanted & Enchanted - Pavement
