albums-under-40-minutes

I think you can go one better, and only listen to albums that fall into the sacred 37 minute category:

The Go-Betweens - 16 Lover's Lane
The Jam - All Mod Cons
Young Marble Giants - Collosal Youth
Neil Young - Harvest
Max Tundra - Mastered By Guy at the Exchange

We can surmise that all of these artists were truly ahead of their time; working within the 37-minute paradigm years and in some cases decades before it was discovered by the Pitchfork/Radiohead Albumological Research Consortium.

Sidenote: King of Limbs is a pretty good record.

this is a really good list.

i don’t like king of limbs much—it just didn’t do it for me—but the gross, un-self-conscious way with which a lot of music critics and long-term radiohead fans are trying to turn it into an “important” record, instead of just one that they like, is really what bothers me.
