As usual, a solid list from NPR, but I wish they would man up and rank their selections one year.

As always, gotta love NPR's all-inclusiveness. I guarantee that this is the only list you'll ever see that contains both Bach's St. Matthew's Passion and a mixtape whose cover is a close-up of the album title tattooed onto an erect penis.
