Random musings and activities of a 30 something mom, potential sprint triathlete, vegetarian, dog and cat owner, and a evolving urban homesteader just trying to do the right thing in life for my daughter and the world around us.

PostHeaderIcon According to Amazon.... 100 Great Indie Albums of all time. Agree?


Whether you agree with the sum of the list or not, let's agree that there are some great choices on this list.  I'll admit a few made me scratch my head puzzled, and a few I was embarrassed I wasn't familiar with.  A quick trip to both iTunes and the Amazon music store fixed that.

100 Greatest Indie Rock Albums of All Time

I was happy to see Magnetic Fields rank as high as 11, but disappointed no Death Cab for Cutie was in the top 10, but did make a showing at #14.  Pixies at #8 got a nod from me (if that matters).

I have no doubt, you ask 100 professional (paid or otherwise) music reviewers, you'll get 100 different lists.  In fact, in reading some of the comments, some people are down right angry about some exclusions to the list.  That made me giggle a bit. 

Really, the only thing we can all agree on is that there is more good music out there than I could have find or have time to listen to.  What is forced down our throats by the mainstream music media, in my opinion, has never been representative of the best that is out there.

What do you see missing from the list?

Anything on the list that makes you question the sanity of the author?

Quotes as I come across them......

“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, an hour, a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it last forever.” ~~~Lance Armstrong

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." ~~~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I like running because it's a challenge. If you run hard, there's the pain----and you've got to work your way through the pain. You know, lately it seems all you hear is 'Don't overdo it' and 'Don't push yourself.' Well, I think that's a lot of bull. If you push the human body, it will respond." ~~~Bob Clarke, Philadelphia Flyers general manager, NHL Hall of Famer. (Will-Weber's "Voices From the Midpack" chapter.)

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.~~~Denis Watley

Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly. ~~~Thomas H. Huxley (1825 - 1895)
