Waiting on #1
When I'm not listening to my sumptuous satellite radio -- God's gift to the picky media-type -- I usually keep my radio tuned to the Great 88.5 WXPN in Philadelphia. XPN is the ultimate radio station, a Penntity (i.e. it operates under the aegis of the University of Pennsylvania) that boasts an eclectic, open-minded educated style, so it's a magnet for the Ivy League, yuppie, intelligentsia types... one of which is your humble writer, in case you haven't already noticed.
But to mark their first anniversary at their new facility, XPN is hosting a countdown of the 885 Greatest Albums of All Time, as judged by their listenership. Right now, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (#2) is blaring over my speakers.
This is the Top 10 to this point....
# 10 – THE BEATLES – Rubber Soul
# 9 – THE BEATLES – Revolver
# 8 – THE CLASH – London Calling
# 7 – U2 – The Joshua Tree
# 6 – THE BEATLES – The Beatles (White Album)
# 5 – BOB DYLAN – Blood On The Tracks
# 4 – BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN – Born To Run
# 3 – PINK FLOYD – Dark Side Of The Moon
# 2 – THE BEATLES – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
I'll post my Top 10 in the combox below. But what are yours?
