  1. I have to say I am disappointed in some of the choices made on this episode. Anytime Cake is a Number 1 on anything, something has gone horribly wrong. (not to mention third eye blind, ew)

    If I were to put together a list for this one it would look like this:
    5. Odelay by Beck
    4. The Soft Bulletin by The Flaming Lips
    3. In The Airplane Over the Sea by Neutral Milk Hotel
    2. OK Computer by Radiohead
    1. The Score by The Fugees.

  2. Yeah, well… that’s like… your opinion, man.

  3. Actually I’d agree with your list for the most part. 2 in particular I didn’t know existed until about 3 years ago, so I couldn’t justify putting them on my personal list, since in the late ’90’s I was listening to the likes of Cake, Korn, Rage, Radiohead, etc. Just saying, I’m way more right.
    BTW thanks for the comment, hope to have you as a guest twin sometime soon 🙂

  4. No.

    Third Eye Blind’s “Third Eye Blind” was one of the best albums ever. Period.

    The person who included it on their list “gets it”.

    ESPECIALLY if you’re in your mid-twenties, when at the time that album was out alt-rock was a stepping stone into bigger, better things.

    “How’s It Gonna Be” was a pop masterpiece that managed to present dynamic brilliance as well as well-thought out allegorical lyrics.
