  46. PLENTY MORE COMING...

Interesting list after the top few choices which were fairly predictable.

Yes, the first 15 are probably VERY accurate down to the smallest differences (doesn't mean they can't change). After that, I'm not quite as certain, though one can't go wrong with any of them anyway so it shouldn't matter much.

No Trout Mask Replica?

It's a possible inclusion. But I am uncertain of where it ranks right now and need to re-listen to it.

Not the complete album, but if Side 1 of Meet the Residents was an EP it would neatly fit here.

Thanks, I'm only including whole albums but I'd still agree that that one should probably go on here, or at least not much farther down than the current list goes. Just not quite sure yet though...
