    Thanks for updating my memories. Yeah I remember they found both Kate Bush and Bjork quite unusual!

    I love B&B - I don't think that show gets enough credit for being great, especially for the lampooning of videos.

    This could be the best album of the decade, although I'm not really admittedly an expert on the decade. But it certainly has to be considered one of the best just on merit alone. An utterly jaw-dropping accomplishment for these guys before Rostam left the band and they got all jammy.

    199. Pavement - Slanted and Enchanted
    Producer: Pavement

    Slanted and Enchanted is the debut studio album by American indie rock band Pavement, released on April 20, 1992 by Matador Records. It is the only Pavement album to feature drummer Gary Young. The album received critical acclaim and is seen as a landmark for indie rock. As of 2007, the album had sold 150,000 copies.

    Release
    Slanted and Enchanted was distributed to critics as early as 1991, months before its official release; the original distribution did not feature the entire band, as several members joined during its production.[7]The recording sessions were split between South Makepeace Studios in Brooklyn, New York (recorded December 24, 1990) and Louder Than You Think Studios in Stockton, California (recorded January 13–20, 1991).

    The first single (EP), "Summer Babe" appeared in August 1991.[3][4][5] It was the last release on Chicago's Drag City label before the band moved to Matador. It contained the B-sides "Mercy Snack (The Laundromat)" and "Baptist Blacktick" that were later included on the deluxe version of the album. A different mix of "Summer Babe," entitled "Summer Babe (Winter Version)," became the first track on the band's debut album. The song was also ranked by Rolling Stone magazine as number 286 in its 2004 list of the 500 greatest songs of all time,[8][9]and as number 292 in the 2011 update of the list.[10]

    "Trigger Cut" was first released in the UK by Big Cat Records on July 13, 1992, later released in the US by Matador the following month.[11]

    The title Slanted and Enchanted is taken from the title of a cartoon made by the late Silver Jewsfrontman David Berman.[12] Its cover art was created by appropriating that of an existing album, Ferrante & Teicher's Keyboard Kapers. Slanted and Enchanted was officially released on 20 April 1992 to critical acclaim, originally reaching a peak of number 72 on the UK Albums Chart.[13] As of 2007, the album had sold 150,000 copies.[14]

    In 2002, Matador released Slanted and Enchanted: Luxe & Reduxe, a compilation containing Slanted and Enchanted in its entirety, as well outtakes and other rarities from the same era.

    I used ot own Slanted And Enchanted and some of my friends back in the 90s really swore by it. But for some reason it never connected to me. I have recently bought Diamond Life but have not had time to listen to it yet, so no thoughts on that except, man, was she beautiful or what?

    The first of the three great Pavement albums, IMO, though I actually like the next two (Crooked Rain, Wowee Zowee) a bit more. I guess this was the most influential, though.

    Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain was my first real a-ha! moment with Pavement. I like Slanted and Enchanted, but not as much as Crooked.

    And as far as colors go, the pinks seem to have it in this countdown. Wire's Pink Flag might be the best punk rock album this side of the Ramones and Sex Pistols, and Nick Drake's Pink Moon might be the best of the singer/songwriter genre, although Leonard Cohen might have something to say about that.

    Actually, Leonard would probably say something classy. (Or not, considering some of his songs.)

    198. The B-52’s - The B-52’s (1979)
    Producer: Chris Blackwell

    The B-52's is the debut album by the Athens, Georgia-based new wave band the B-52's. The kitschy lyrics and mood, and the hook-laden harmonies helped establish a fanbase for the band, who went on to release several chart-topping singles. The album cover was designed by Tony Wright (credited as Sue Ab Surd).

    The B-52's peaked at number 59 on the Billboard200,[3] and "Rock Lobster" reached number 56 on the Billboard Hot 100.[4] In 2003, the television network VH1 named The B-52's the 99th greatest album of all time. Shortly before his death, John Lennon said he enjoyed the album.[5] In his 1995 book, The Alternative Music Almanac, Alan Crossplaced the album ninth on the list of 10 Classic Alternative Albums.

    A
    This is an album that has grown in stature with me over time. For awhile I merely regarded it as the most consistent release in the catalog of a kitschy band who singles I had always enjoyed, but which didn't take particularly seriously. The band's whole vibe, though, is fun and not seriousness, and my appreciation for this album as being important insofar as US New Wave grew as I heard more music of that style from that era. Now I regard it as highly as any punk or garage album - IMO it's of the same general family.

    Apart from, perhaps, Devo, the B-52's probably defined the sound of late-70's/early 80's new wave radio more than any other band. Not saying they were the best or most important, but "Rock Lobster" and "Planet Claire" were everywhere at the time. Even music fans that turned their nose up at this sort of music were still talking about them. A lot was changing in music during this period, but the B-52's were one of the clearest indicators that much was now different in pop/rock.

    Oh yeah, the album is fantastic. 5/5

    B 52'S (The B 52's)

    I love this album! The best B 52's album as there are more standout songs than on any other album of theirs. "Rock Lobster" is of course a classic, but "Planet Claire", "Hot Lava", "Party Out Of Bounds", and "Dance This Mess Around" are also great, catchy fun.
    They would do other great songs, but nothing else could capture the energy, imagination, and creativity of the debut!

    The B-52s is a great album, and I'm sort of surprised ot see it on this list, as it's too New Wave, not "serious"-- but underneath the surface...it is serious.

    They sounded like no one else, and their mix of surf instrumental music, disco, Yoko Ono and trashy bubblegum somehow added up to a technicolor soul that seemed shallow, felt good, but ultimately had deep depths of the freaky Americana that exists in the South, like a hidden culture between the cracks of things but so seldom gets spotlight. A culture that's part criminal, part art, part trash.

    They were pretty much singlehandedly responsible for the Athens Georgia scene that so dominated the mid-80s underground.

    197. The Beatles - Meet the Beatles! (1964)
    Producer: George Martin

    Meet the Beatles! is a studio album by the English rock band the Beatles, released as their second album in the United States. It was the group's first American album to be issued by Capitol Records, on 20 January 1964 in both mono and stereo formats. It topped the popular album chart on 15 February 1964 and remained at number one for eleven weeks before being replaced by The Beatles' Second Album. The cover featured Robert Freeman's iconic portrait of the Beatles used in the United Kingdom for With the Beatles, with a blue tint added to the original stark black-and-white photograph.

    Background
    After EMI's subsidiary Capitol Records constantly rejected requests by both
    Brian Epstein and George Martin to release Beatles records in the United States, EMI label head Sir Joseph Lockwood sent a deputy to Los Angeles in November 1963 ordering Capitol Records to commence promoting and releasing Beatles records in the United States. Despite the "first album" claim on the Meet the Beatles! cover, ten days prior to its release, Vee-Jay Records of Chicago beat Capitol to the punch with the release on 10 January 1964 of the Beatles' American debut album Introducing... The Beatles,which had been delayed for release for various reasons since the previous summer. Perhaps as a result of the Vee-Jay release, Liberty Music Shops advertised in the New York Times of 12 January 1964 that Meet the Beatles! was available for purchase, an ad not authorised by Capitol.[2]

    In 2004, the album was released for the first time on compact disc in both stereo and mono as part of The Capitol Albums, Volume 1 box set, containing the original US stereo and mono mixes. In 2014, Meet the Beatles! was reissued on CD, individually and included in the Beatles boxed set The U.S. Albums, wherein, although following the running order for Meet the Beatles!, are featured the UK mono and stereo mixes.

    Music
    By November 1963, the Beatles had already recorded over 35 songs for EMI's UK Parlophonelabel, while Capitol Records in the US planned to release an album and a single, and more at a later date. The US rights to the Beatles' first 14 tracks were held by Vee Jay Records along with a few others. "She Loves You" had been issued in America on the Swan label and also sold poorly. In Britain, Parlophone was already releasing their second Beatles album With the Beatles and had issued several singles which were not included on any UK albums with the exception of the first two ("Please Please Me"/"Ask Me Why" and "Love Me Do"/"PS I Love You"). While the Beatles' first two British albums each contained 14 tracks, in the American market albums were typically limited to 12 tracks and it was expected for albums to include the current hit single.

    The first three tracks on the album include the December 1963 Capitol single "I Want to Hold Your Hand" along with the record's B-sides both in the United States, "I Saw Her Standing There," and in the UK with "This Boy" from the original November 1963 release. Neither "I Want to Hold Your Hand" nor "This Boy" had appeared on album at the time in the UK, while "I Saw Her Standing There" had been the lead-off track to the band's debut album. The other nine tracks on Meet the Beatles! are duplicated from its nearest UK counterpart album With the Beatles. Those were Beatles original songs and not cover versions of songs done by other artists with exception of "Till There Was You". The remaining five tracks from With the Beatles were songs originally recorded by other artists. Capitol determined that for their first album they would only include original and fresh material. There was fear that the remakes would turn Americans off of the Beatles. The other five songs would appear on Capitol's next American LP, The Beatles' Second Album, released in April 1964.[3] The songs "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and "This Boy" are in a duophonic [fake] stereo, as Capitol had not been provided proper stereo mixes.

    haha! Meet The Beatles!...how to trigger UK Beatles fans: a masterclass.

    Well, Meet The Beatles Is an improvement on With The Beatles even if it's Frankensteined from two different sub-eras.
    I believe it was the third Beatles album I owned, the first two being 20 Greatest Hits and...that 1962-1966 compilation. And I loved it. I think I was 17. and I spent the next few months acquiring all of the Beatles albums with what was left over from my money after I paid for gas in my enormous car.

    5/5, for sentimental reasons and also because the songs are great.

    MEET THE BEATLES (The Beatles)
    I'm psyched to see this album in the countdown! Most of the times the US albums were weaker than the UK equivalent, but in this case, MEET THE BEATLES is superior to WITH THE BEATLES as it adds 3 key Lennon/McCartney songs (I Want To Hold Your Hand, I Saw Her Standing There, and This Boy) to the mix and only cuts out a few covers, which all ended up on THE BEATLES 2ND ALBUM. The group did have a better album than this in the US until RUBBER SOUL and only A HARD DAYS NIGHT was better than MEET THE BEATLES from the UK albums released in that time.
    This is simply the best rock album released in the US in 1964!

    Meet the Beatles
    N/A
    I don't recognize the existence of US Beatles albums, so I must pass. I was too young to experience the Beatles in real time, and just bought the UK albums when I got older and dipped my toe into the Beatles. Yeah, I know I've heard every song on this, but I'm still passing out of principle :)

    It's interesting how they went with the US Meet The Beatles (which I agree is better than With The Beatles) but the UK A Hard Day's Night (which, in turn, is far, far, far better than its US counterpart.) Of course, I just listen to my own custom playlists of all the Beatles albums pre-Revolver. Lifes too short to listen to "Hold Me Tight."

    Body Talk is the seventh studio album by Swedish singer Robyn, released on 22 November 2010 by Konichiwa Records. Robyn first announced in early 2010 that she would release three mini-albums throughout the course of 2010. However, it was later announced that a full-length album would be released instead of a third mini-album. The first two mini-albums of what was dubbed the Body Talkseries, Body Talk Pt. 1 and Body Talk Pt. 2, were released in June and September 2010. While being a separate studio album in its own right, the full-length release also serves as a compilation album, containing the "best songs" from the first two entries in the Body Talk series in addition to five new songs. In certain territories, the new songs were also available separately as an extended play released the same day, titled Body Talk Pt. 3. The four songs and two acoustic versions from the project that were excluded from the original track listing were later included on the German iTunes and 2019 Record Store Day vinyl versions of the album.

    Background and Development
    In an interview with Swedish magazine Bon, Robyn announced that she had plans to release three new albums in 2010.[6] She said, "I got all these great songs so why not? [...] It's been 5 years since Robynand I didn't want to wait with a release until they are all recorded, so I decided to start putting them out right away."[7] Robyn told Popjustice journalist Peter Robinson, "It's been a long time since I actually made a record! And I was thinking of how to shorten that time down and Eric, my manager, came up with the idea of what if I just start releasing songs, then I can tour them, then I can make some more songs. We started working like that. I think once it starts it will make more sense – you can just keep releasing stuff without the long breaks."[8] Robyn collaborated with Swedish producer Max Martin on the song "Time Machine".[9] Martin was responsible for producing Robyn's US breakthrough hits "Do You Know (What It Takes)" and "Show Me Love", which both charted inside the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 in 1996 and 1997. She said of the collaboration: "It was nostalgic to go back into the studio together. For me, it's perfect timing – I've come full circle. It's a way for me to show that I'm not trying to distance myself from where I come from. It's still all about the songs."

    197. The Beatles - Meet the Beatles! (1964)

    In my collection in the UK version, With The Beatles. When this came out, all I had heard were the couple of hit singles from the Meet The Beatles. When I began buying music in 1970 at some point I owned a Meet The Beatles LP but transitioned to With The Beatles when the CD was issued...

    196. Robyn - Body Talk (2010)

    DEFINITELY a better album than Meet the Beatles. Finally, someone sees this.

    BODY TALK (Robyn)
    Seriously? This is such a nondescript bit of dance music. I can possibly see "Do You Know What It Takes" or one of her other singles in the singles countdown, but I a full album of Robyn makes no sense. Even a "best of " is pushing it.
