Top 100 Greatest Music Albums by dr_worm_md (2019)
I use this site to chart my favorites. I'm not trying to make a chart for someone else.
Best of "All-Time" means "All of MY Time".
I hope you enjoy checking out my personal taste. :-)

And the key reason to me is that it sounds so familiar. To me, it's the sound of remembering childhood... Not actual childhood...the remembering. Because the lyrics are very adult at times, but only because it is an adult remembering those innocent things and knowing that at times it wasn't so innocent...like maybe innocence is something we put on children in a bogus way. Like I never felt like a child when I was one. I just remember trying to figure it all out. But maybe that's just another bogus trip I’m imposing on my memories.
At any rate...the sounds and words of In The Aeroplane help me explore that idea of "what have I gone through" without granting any easy answers. So that makes the album honest and exciting for me. It makes the album important.(First added to this chart: 03/07/2011)
Tiny Toons was my entry point...like a lot of fans...but I stuck around after Flood to experience the entire catalog. And like a lot of fans...Lincoln is my favorite.
Seeing it now as an adult I know exactly why I like it more than Flood. It's more lo-fi....it's weirder...it's a little darker in places...but at the time there was just one reason: it was more emotionally brutal. They'll Need a Crane is this upbeat danceable tune set alongside this tragic tale of a crumbling marriage. Santa's Beard again is a rocking-ly fun song about infidelity. And I've always been drawn to the heartbreaking loneliness of Ana Ang.
An early teen me fell in love instantly. It was the songs that truly spoke to my angst...even though now I understand I was just being a kind of typical child of divorce.
Whatever the reason...Lincoln will always raise that young me from the grave to dance. I have felt worse than when I was a teen...but few albums have ever made me feel better.(First added to this chart: 03/07/2011)
But then I started hanging with my friend Brent who was...like those other indie snobs I had met before...really into Wilco. But by this time I was older...mellowed...not such a dick. So I gave it a whirl.
Surprise, surprise...it's awesome.
I have never dug Spoon or Yo La Tengo. But Wilco...they were the ones I began to really like from among that group of solid, rocking indie band. And it's probably for all the reasons everyone else likes them...the songs are fucking great.
So whenever I hear Heavy Metal Drummer...I don’t just bounce along...I remember how far I've progressed from my early music listening days. I remember that I have gotten over myself.(First added to this chart: 03/07/2011)
The only problem was I found Dear You before I found 24 Hour Revenge Therapy. You see Dear You is considered the "sell-out" album of the band. It's polished and slicker than the band's earlier albums. It's closer to pop than punk.
So when I began to find out that other indie folks loved Jawbreaker, I was pumped...but then I saw how they all mourned Dear You's existence.
As a young callow person, I lacked the confidence to stand up for my tastes and lead the charge in Dear You's defense. Instead, I hid my true allegiance and weaponized my snobbishness into obnoxiousness (ironically in direct defiance of the message of Boxcar).
But now I display my appreciation boldly. May 4th isn't about Star Wars to me...it's The Sluttering.(First added to this chart: 03/07/2011)

Great chart, interesting to see that blink album in the top 10.
nice personal picks but you should listen to some pink floyd my man.
Really interesting, fantastic description for Aeroplane. Very 90s, 00s and 10s heavy but it's personal and good
Really kinda quirky but that's a good thing
While I don't like every album on this chart, I thoroughly enjoyed your comments on the top 10, and had to chuckle to myself as I remember my own group of snob-ish friends that I used to hang out with. Love a lot of the picks on here, there were a few that don't get enough credit for what they are (particularly "I See a Darkness" and "Gorilla Manor"). Will definitely be checking out the ones I don't know, particularly They Might Be Giants.
Wow, this could be one of my favorite charts. They Might Be Giants is fantastic, though not that many people really get them. I applaud you sir.
Very honest comments to a good list
Alot of Genre hugging, but some gems on here.
Good taste. Intresing choices.
