So under these new "looser" guidelines would Substance count?

What about Depeche Mode's 101, one of my favorites.

New Order "Substance" would count. And will probably be highly ranked. And DM "101" will definitely garner strong consideration, depending on which othe DM albums are chasen and how many. I would say 101 and Violator would pretty much cover it, except you know hom much I love washed-up Depeche Mode!

fxck the smiths.

and not every Elvis Costello album should be worth mentioning. geez.

do you have the sex pistols on there?
and how about 'Legend' ... Bob Marley? I copied that cassette off of you in highschool.

and yes, I am still mad that you missed 'Graceland'.

and if there _has_ to be a Mathew Sweet album on there then it should be 'girlfriend' ... geez if you put Mathew Sweet on there then you might as well put Lenny Kravitz 'mama said' or 'are you gonna go my way?'

what about Live (for you, not me)? Charlatans UK?

and take 'Achtung Baby' off of there and put 'Joshua Tree' or 'Rattle and
Hum' ... you know you listened to those two albums way more than you ever did 'Achtung'.

if you didn't then you should be ashamed.
