The Flaming Lips made so many wonderful albums, but The Soft Bulletin is still my favorite. It remains as poignant and relevant as ever, particularly given our ongoing opioid addiction epidemic. Even though the album was released in 1999, I’ve come to think of it as the dividing line between 20th and 21st century music. It was the 1st album that sounded like the new millennium.

‘The Spiderbite Song’, ‘What Is the Light’, ‘Suddenly Everything Has Changed’, and ‘The Gash’ are the most underrated of many underrated tracks.

Once I decided to add my favorite contemporaneously issued live albums to my charts (no archival releases), I knew this would make it into the top 20. A Live One was probably my favorite album from when I bought it sometime in 1995/96 to at least the year 2000. My enjoyment of it hasn’t really declined since then…it’s just that my enjoyment of other bands and albums has since increased. A Live One’s release coincided with the start of my Phish fandom. I attended my first live show a year later in 1996 and haven’t looked back.

My favorite tracks have changed so many times over the years. Upon last listen, ‘Stash’, ‘Slave to the Traffic Light’, ‘Simple’, ‘Harry Hood’ and ‘The Squirming Coil’ were the standouts, but really…I love it all. I even have more patience and enjoyment for the 31 minute ‘Tweezer’ than I did back then. The extended jam goes to some very strange but rewarding places, before (what appears) effortlessly storming back into ‘Tweezer’ for the last few minutes. The piano solo outro to the closing track, ‘The Squirming Coil’ is, and has always been, sublime.

OK Computer is a great album, but Radiohead has never been a top 10 band for me and probably never will be. I really need to be in the right mood to handle Thom Yorke’s vocals…unlike some other artists that can transport me into the right mood. [First added to this chart: 03/29/2017]

Another amazing Pavement album. Brighten The Corners has (type) slowly moved up to rival Slanted And Enchanted and Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain. ‘Ode To Begin’, ‘Type Slowly’, ‘Embassy Row’ and ‘We Are Underused’ are the most underrated tracks. ‘Stereo’ is one of favorite songs of 1990s.

Emperor Tomato Ketchup is BEA’s favorite Stereolab album and my second favorite after Mars Audiac Quintet (which BEA rates 4th best btw). This is one of my go-to-albums from one of my go-to-bands. [First added to this chart: 04/09/2017]
