    I see you have 2 Phish albums on here! You should do a review of one of their albums!

    I noticed on your list Tom that you have several pop punk albums there like new found glory and green day. I didnt know that you liked pop punk at all

  • Talking Radioheads
    #3 written by Talking Radioheads  4 years ago

    There is a mistake on the list, so it appears that NIN’s Downward spiral isn’t even on the newest list, that seems to be a top 199.

    • VIMTV
      #4 written by VIMTV  4 years ago

      Oh no! Thanks for bringing this to my attention– I don’t want anyone thinking The Downward Spiral isn’t my favorite album!
