Theme From Retro
Pitchfork has, in lieu of Monday’s news, posted their list of the Top 100 albums of the 80s, or more accurately, numbers 100-51.
I am batting a meagre 0.160 right now, with a few base on balls or hit by pitches as I have some of the material represented on compilations and whatnot (Mission Of Burma, Leonard Cohen, etc). I anticipate a better showing tomorrow, though.
77 – The Smiths / Strangeways, Here We Come
71 – The Replacements / Pleased To Meet Me
70 – Elvis Costello & The Attractions / Trust
69 – The Feelies / Crazy Rhythms
65 – The Soft Boys / Underwater Moonlight
62 – R.E.M. / Reckoning
58 – Elvis Costello & The Attractions / Imperial Bedroom
57 – Pixies / Come On Pilgrim
np – Neutral Milk Hotel / In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
