"Good artists copy, great artists steal."

I forget who said that. [Google update: it was Picasso. Sweet.]
Anyways, today, I’m attempting to steal the idea of “95% Albums” from Andy. And to make it my own, I’m titling it “95% Records.” See what I did there? Creative, huh? Yeah, I know.
Just what the internets need- another douchebag pontificating on on music. Oh well. What else do I have to say? Unless you want me to ramble about the benefits of true-bypass vs. non true-bypass and buffered effects loops, or why 1970’s Hagstroms are cooler than PRSes, this is what you get.

Coming soon:
Led Zeppelin III & IV (and I & II, and Houses of the Holy, and Physical Graffitti, and Prescence, and In Through the Out… Fuck. Nevermind. Led Zep (and The Beatles)=disqualified for being too good).
Refused: The Shape of Punk To Come…
White Stripes: White Blood Cells
Raconteurs: Broken Boy Soldiers
Weezer: Pinkerton
Wipers: Is This Real?
The Damned: Damned Damned Damned
Fugazi: In On The Kill Taker
Hot Snakes: Automatic Midnight
Nirvana: In Utero
Minor Threat: Complete Discography
Bad Brains: ROIR s/t
Descendents: Milo Goes To College
Queens of the Stone Age: Songs for the Deaf
Foo Fighters: The Colour and the Shape
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds: Murder Ballads and Dig, Lazarus Dig!!!
UNKLE: War Stories
Beastie Boys: Check Your Head

Yeah, most of those are pretty obvious, but, you know… my apologies for having good taste. As I used to say: “I get paid for my good taste in music.” (Actually, I don’t anymore, but I did at the time.)

Filed under Empty Promises/Threats, Hipsterism, I call them 'records' and not 'cds' because I'm an elitist

    I see what you did there.
    It’s colorful.

    I look forward to the bands I haven’t heard of (there are a few!) and the Foo Fighters one, because that did surprise me.

    I’m also happy to be stole from (“stolen from”?? what’s the right case/aspect here?) – in this situation anyway.

    PS. Must remember my future comment for the Weezer disc.
