Pitchfork is running a poll called the People’s List where anyone can login and vote for at least 20 and as many as 100 of their favorite albums from 1996-2011. I made my list mostly based upon albums from my own 2009 ranking of my 100 favorite albums of all time. Numbers 1-52 retain the ranking from the earlier list while the additional albums are inserted more haphazardly.
I’m actually surprised at how many albums I had to fill in manually. It makes me feel like a hipster to have musical tastes that are too obscure for Pitchfork. Or maybe I’m too bland. To be honest I’m no longer all to content with my ranking from three years ago. I also feel like there are a lot of good albums out there that I haven’t listened to yet.
So take a moment to go Pitchfork Media and make your own People’s List. Then come back here and post your list in the comments and let me know a few albums I really need to hear.
