At home last night I read the "89 albums" article by Tim de Lisle in the Guardian. Apart from him including the Arcade Fire album Funeral and Magnetic Fields' 69 Love Songs, there was still a lot of predictability to the list. And some very curious choices too - not least in opting for 2 soundtracks and those being The Sound of Music and Saturday Night Fever (where was Pulp Fiction anyone?)
Anyone spot any obvious missing works and artists? I'd certainly add a double pack of Rufus Wainwright's Want One and Want Two. Ignoring the fact that classical, jazz and country music were seemingly beyond the remit of the article, there are other significant ommissions: there was no Jeff Buckley, no Nick Drake, and NO PULP (sorry, but you should have at least one of their works in). No Pixies?! The Sex Pistols are included, but there's no Ian Dury?
I know more serious matters should exercise my feeble mind, but the more I thought about the list, the more it irritated me.
