I'm not a fan, I've enjoyed a few of their songs but I just don't see why the get linked into the top tier of the 90's "alternative" bands. I saw them live once and was horribly dissapointed,
Am I alone here thinking that Smashing Pumpkins are a pretty mediocre band, fronted by one of the biggest unrepentant douchebags in all of modern music?
Well, yes, it appears that I am.
I think we need to have a hip-hop list, i've been listening to Digable Planets "Blowout Comb" recently and its up their with De La Soul is Dead
That's an idea I could ereally get behind. The last decade plus of rock music has left me pretty disillusioned and nowadays 90% of what i listen to is hip hop.
Saul Williams, S/T
De La Soul, 3 Feet High and Rising.
Public Enemy, It Takes a nation of Millions to Hold Us Back.
Astronautalis, This Is Our Science. (Easily my favorite album this year.)
