I'd have a lot more hip-hop a lot higher, and I'd switch the RATM albums (I think the self titled kills) but I love this list. I'm honestly not even sure I could come up with 111 albums. Thanks for the time. What's the word with the new site at this point? Should I switch my link back to this one?

hey. Good going with all blogs.

And if you entertain requests, how about a best 100 songs of the 90's list. Would appreciate it :)

Very well covered! But, um, where's Garth Brooks? :)

A very respectable list, however, at least one minor technicality... I believe Fugazi's 13 Songs was released in 1989.
