Dr. OctagonecologystThis was tough. So many things wouldn't fit, and once you get it narrowed to your top 50, it's downright awful, but really, everything on here blew my mind at the time, plus I still love and listen to it all. Gimme another week and the new Death Grips album would probably be on here too, so let's hope the next 20 years are just as rewarding, and that half of these are missing once we get to AllMusic 40. Oh, and I'm totally serious about the Pitchshifter and Fabulon, so try 'em ASAP.
