The second installment of the thirty-second challenge : rock albums (and still no mention of brunettes ?)

Tags: 
  • Days of Future Passed The Moody Blues (see comments)
  • Trout Mask Replica Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band (see comments)
  • You're Gonna Get It Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (my all-time favourite music album)
  • Damn The Torpedoes Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (obvious Tom Petty connection)
  • Pet Sounds The Beach Boys (I am currently listening to melodic choral vocal rock when I listen to CDs at home)
  • If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears The Mamas & The Papas (see above)
  • Walk On (I guess John Hiatt is bound to pop up in my head once in a while)
  • Synchronicity The Police (this is where the wonder begins... I don't even own this album but it played on my launchcast radio yesterday)
  • Rebel Yell Billy Idol (go figure, both Sting and Billy had spiky hair at around the same time, that could explain)
  • London Calling The Clash (some kind of connection between Idol's fake fm punk and The Clash's masterpiece I suppose)

Those who don't know what the "thirty-second challenge" is are invited to read the first installment of it : ten movies before going further thank you :)
This edition didn't have the same interest for me as the ten movies challenge as I have, during nerdy spare time when I was still in College, compiled a list of rock albums using a grading technique and spent evenings and nights discussing that with buddies and the consensus was that number one would be a tie between the two hugely different Days of Future Passed and Trout Mask Replica... maybe I could look for that list in my boxes of college stuff and post it on Listology someday

I gave this one a go as well:

Captain Beefheart - Trout Mask Replica (obviously your fault...)
Elvis Costello - This Year's Model
The Strokes - Is This It?
Squeeze - Singles 45 & Under
Patty Griffin - Living With Ghosts
Ella Fitzgerald - Best of the Songbooks (Does this count? Probably not. Let's go on...)
Bob Dylan - Blood on the Tracks
Joni Mitchell - Blue
James Taylor - Sweet Baby James
Adam Again - Dig
The White Stripes - Elephant

Yep, largely populated by recent listens, although that doesn't account for Mr. Taylor; that is probably explained by a stylistic connection with Blue.

Or not...

Shalom, y'all!

Muse - Absolution
Radiohead - OK Computer
The Beatles - Revolver
Rob Dougan - Furious Angels
The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream
Dream Theater - Awake
Philip Glass - The Truman Show
The Clash - London Calling
Audio Adrenaline - Bloom

I'm afraid I can't do this one because I read the existing lists and this had the effect of scribbling all over my clean slate.

I had that problem, too. Maybe we should put our own lists in spoiler tags in the future.

I agree
