So, starting tomorrow I will be posting the Erik Gonzalez 100 in segments of 10, working our way up to the top over the next few weeks. I’ll have commentary on each album, so it might take a few days between entries. Feel free to comment on any of my picks or comments.
I thought as a teaser, I’d list my numbers 110-101 as sort of a “just missed.” It might give you an inkling of what is to come (and to show how hard it is to make the list and try to make it be something beyond a qualitative list … heck, a lot of these albums might have easily made the top 100).
- 110. AC/DC: Back in Black
- 109. Beastie Boys: Check Your Head
- 108. Violent Femmes: Violent Femmes
- 107. Chemical Brothers: Exit Planet Dust
- 106. New Pornographers: Mass Romantic
- 105. Amon Tobin: Bricolage
- 104. The Streets: A Grand Don’t Come for Free
- 103. Guns ‘N Roses: Appetite for Destruction
- 102. The Roots: Things Fall Apart
- 101. Quasi: Featuring ‘Birds’
The rest will be coming soon!
