Best album from Jezebel's 'The 150 Worst Albums Made By Men' list?


#1

Only one rule: You cant say Kid A.


#2

this is probably between Tool Ænima and Chief Keef _Finally Rich_ for me.


#3

Reckon there will be plenty of The National and ur man Bon Iver picks on here.


#4

: D quite amused by this. will have a look rn


#5

I like the list idea, don’t like some of the inclusions, even if the top spots are probably good choices.

mine:

Tool, Skinny Puppy, Slint, and Rapeman.


#6

loving this anti-canon, anti-list rhetoric; I’d like to think that I’ve already subconsciously picked up on their criticisms, that they already inform my existing distaste for lists and canon.

I mean, I genuinely feel like they do, that my love and appreciation of music is fundamentally incompatible with the ur-logic in those things.


#7

lists are bad and sadly they seem to be one of the only ways to get people talking about music/art.


#8

yea i think ive settled on this list being about 95% correct.


#9

Even some albums that I kinda have a soft spot for for nostalgia reasons (311, Savage Garden) def belong on this list. No reason to go to bat for those, just kinda have to go:
giphy


#10

arcade fire…

made by men

its weird, cause most of these are definitely terrible, but theres just a couple that are definitely great (spiderland/ boxer/ kid a etc). probably just baiting for comments/shares, in which case fair play


#11

three of my all-time favourites are on there, but I respect the choices as a necessary dig at indie listmakers.

non-hierarchical music appreciation is the dream.


#12

yeah, weirdest thing though.

I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful for the kind of alternative lists that have turned me onto so much great music, but it’s a crutch for on here, ranking stuff (also album-centric thinking).


#13

ha didnt even notice Philly’s Most Wanted, Get Down or Lay Down on my first couple looks through the list, that may be the most random choice on here.


#14

:’( no Throwing Muses on that original NPR list

I mean, not that I care. (ffs).


#15

These would probably be in my top 100 of all time

-79. Radiohead, Kid A

-60. Sufjan Stevens, Illinois
-113. Bon Iver, For Emma, Forever Ago
-128. Slint, Spiderland
-149. Skinny Puppy, Too Dark Park

List does a good job generally of hitting on stinkers though, so shrug


#16

Slint, Spiderland my favourite on there.

And Black Eyed Peas were better before Fergie joined.


#17

Remember, this list is a parody. In this case, probably of the fact that NPR put Mick Fleetwood’s and John Mac’s Fleetwood Mac at number 16 of the best women’s albums list

#18

There are some hilarious albums on that list tbh tbf tbs.

That said, can I use this thread to again repeat my belief that Chinese Democracy is actually a lost rock masterpiece…


#19

I kinda like it too


#20

they’ve put Placebo’s debut at 31? Also noticed Black Eyed Peas in there…

what a crock of shit
