Top 10s And Lists

** Kingcrimsonprog’s big page of Top 10s and Lists, with the position of “1” being the best in each category and “10” being the 10th best and subsequently still one of the best in the world.

Why they are the number that they are is based entirely on my personal taste. Also; with music, the lists usually follow a rule of allowing only one album per band, and no live or compilation albums unless otherwise stated in the title of the list. However, with DVDs an artist can have more than one entry. Why ? Because that is just how my brain works.

There are albums which I hugely enjoy which didn’t make the lists due to containing filler, having bad production or just plain being beaten by competition from other albums.

  1. I agree with your overrated metal albums, though I would argue that it is Tomb Of The Mutilated that’s the more unfairly lauded of the CC records. Digimortal indeed deserves more praise, maybe even a thirty-foot sculpture of the cover man in the Vatican.


    • Various sources and reasons.
      Various internet and real people. And Amazon lists, magazine articles and countdowns.
      There are just expectations that if you like one genre or one big artist that you should like others, plus there are expectations for like David Bowie, Johnny Cash that everyone should like them.
      That or people like you or previous band members or friends would have said ‘you should listen to them.’


  2. I don’t think that applies to David Bowie, there are very few artists that have that ‘everyone should like them’ appeal, and both of those are two distinctive, Cash particularly. Also, it’s country music.

    This list has reminded me though that Van Halen’s 1984 numbers among my favourite albums, so I must include it in my list.


  3. Yuck! you reminded me of the video for that butterfly song with the disgusting slobbery kiss!! YUCK!


  4. List of Songs That Were Overplayed on Rock Music TV when I was at school:

    This filled my head with some precious memory thinking just then. With the exception of the Chili Peppers one (which was never off the TV when we first got Sky), Luke absolutely loved every one of these songs.


    • I remember Spineshank’s New Disease being on a lot. The usual Slipknot vids were never off, as well as the other singles from Papa Roach and Linkin Park.

      Fucking ROLLIN’! There’s yer number one overplayed video of ever.

      Also, let’s see, Sonne and Links 234, and Chop Suey was never off either. And I Disappear. That’s all I can think of, your list is awesome for those kinda one hit wonder bands like OMP and Staind. There was another Staind video in a burning house I remember, plus AAF’s Movies was fairly prominent.

      K, I’ve just done a little research and was reminded of the following:

      How You Remind Me
      Hash Pipe (oh, how I recall the omnipresence of Hash Pipe)
      The Rock Show (Blink 182)
      She Hates Me (P.o.M.)
      Fat Lip
      My Way (Bizkit)
      Back To School

      And from 2000 (your first year, I think?)
      Teenage Dirtbag

      Also 2002:
      You Know You’re Right
      Hero (off Spider-Man)
      Here To Stay


  5. Harmony Corruption is the only ND album I can listen to the whole way through. I’m going to take a couple of these lists for my blog, starting with the last-decade’s best albums one.


  6. Your list of brilliant songs from poor album: thank you for including “New Rose” from GN’R’s The Spaghetti Incident. Awesome guitar track, and a far superior version to the original. First song I learned on the electric guitar.


  7. Nice varied collection of lists! A lot of agreements here, from the change of heart about Pearl Jam to the underrated Chinese Democracy, great stuff.


  8. Holy shit man, that’s a lot of lists! You got great, varied tastes. At first I thought this was a King Crimson-only blog, and then I was a bit surprised to see that they didn’t even make your top 20 favourite artists. Their debut is definitely one of my all-time favourites.

    Anyway, looking forward to your posts.


    • Ha Ha yeah; don’t get me wrong I still love King Crimson, I was totally obsessed with them from about 2006-2009 and still like most everything they’ve done. They were my favourite band when I chose the name, its just, there’s bands I like more now.
