A lot of Radiohead, but I can forgive that for how high Wilco albums rank!

A lot of Radiohead is always expected in these kind of lists, I blame them for not including Pablo Honey!

I’m happy you can enjoy Pablo Honey, but I never really liked it! I don’t even really like “Creep” that much. I much prefer Radiohead’s weirder stuff (hence The Bends and OK Computer slowly falling down my all time list as time goes on). I just find their more electronic works much more interesting.

Oh no! Sth is wrong. You don't like Creep! I am kidding about the Pablo Honey part, I am not a huge fan of that album although it is not bad. Unlike you I love their records in the 90s more than their 21st century ones. In Rainbows is growing on me lately, Anyway Radiohead are legends. In fact I have been listening to Karma Police on repeat these days especially the one at Glastonbury 2003, When crowd sing along that iconic outro with Thom Yorke, That gives me chills.

I don't know why Paste Magazine says that this list is published in 2020.

I bet this list would look quite different if they redid it today. This is about as extreme of an indie rock tilt as you could get for a 90s album list, and most critics have evolved from that kind of bias.

I dont get the point either.
They did with the 80s and 70s lists too, reposting exactly the same lists. Desperate for clicks I guess
