Here’s a quick catch-up of my Top 100 countdown from 50 to 41. Thanks again to everyone who has commented on my choices – feel free to let me know what you think. Only four more #Top100 posts to go, and I promise that we’ll be back to normal service on Another Kind Of Mind after those! If you’ve missed any of the previous parts of the countdown, click here.
50) GOLDIE – Inner City Life:
One of the tracks that defined drum ‘n’ bass.
49) THE POSTAL SERVICE – We Will Become Silhouettes:
Quirky, addictive, irresistible and utterly delicious electro-pop.
48) MACHINE HEAD – Davidian:
Grabs you by the scruff of the neck and refuses to let go. A definitive slice of the 90’s metal scene.
47) AL GREEN – Take Me To The River:
The word ‘classic’ is thrown around an awful lot when it comes to music – but this is one of the greatest soul classics of all.
46) PUBLIC ENEMY – Welcome To The Terrordome:
Still a head-melter. No-one else will ever have the impact Public Enemy had on music again.
45) CARTER USM – Glam Rock Cops:
Noisy and melodic, with JimBob’s patented cynical, sarcastic, very human lyrics and a stomping glam rock beat.
44) LAMB – Gorecki:
A simply beautiful showcase for Lou Rhodes’ stunning voice.
43) PETER GABRIEL – Solsbury Hill:
Just can’t get bored of this. Probably the best thing he’s ever done.
42) KYUSS – Hurricane:
Love this. Absolutely filthy down-tuned riffage. Massive tune, massive band.
41) PEARL JAM – Rearviewmirror:
Builds and builds to epic effect. Stone Gossard and Mike McCready’s guitars on top form here.
The countdown continues – 40-31 coming soon!
