Wow, haven't seen this thread before, good work. I'm impressed. Not going to go through EVERYTHING, obviously, but a few key points..
- No Need For Alarm
by Del is an amazing album, good choice. Not one that always pops up in the top rap lists but I love it, and he's one of the best IMO.
, Bad Brains
, Dead Kennedys
- Death Grips
are really cool. Maybe a little overrated, but still sweet. Haven't listened to the new album enough but I'll get around to it.
's lists are very good, especially including Immortal Technique
and After The Gold Rush
. Repped (sorry 777, need to spread more before getting to you). Which leads me on to..
- Favourite ever live album, good idea, and one I don't really touch on often. Have to give it to..
's Time Fades Away.
Absolutely love this album. The first in the so-called Ditch Trilogy, it may be my favourite period for his work. Young himself seems to hate it, saying he felt he had the wrong band, playing songs the crowd weren't interested in, and just generally sounding like he had headed for the nearest ditch. Maybe that's what makes it so interesting to me.
Maybe one day it'll get an official re-release, but for now, download it (or spend $200 on the original LP), and listen to it through headphones on a cold, rainy day. Can't beat it.
