So the deadline for this round of submissions to the 33 1/3 series was yesterday and the full list of proposals was posted this morning. 471 in total and it makes fascinating reading, particularly as there are quite a few multiple submissions (the eagle eyed amongst you will note someone else has submitted for The Meadowlands. I'm looking on it as a good thing, with luck one of us will get to write about the album).
There are some great albums on the list, I've got my fingers crossed for these in particular;
The Waterboys Fisherman's Blues
The Frames For the Birds
R.E.M. Automatic for the People
King Crimson Discipline
Creedence Clearwater Revival Green River
They Might Be Giants Flood
The Mountain Goats All Hail West Texas
Red Hot Chili Peppers Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magik (currently spinning on the CD player)
Green Day Dookie
Smashing Pumpkins Siamese Dream
Rage Against the Machine Rage Against the Machine
The Monkees Head
Counting Crows August and Everything After
Husker Du New Day Rising
Booker T and the MGs Green Onions
The Arcade Fire Funeral
I briefly considered Rage Against the Machine, They Might be Giants and Incesticide as possibles when I was in the early stages of putting my proposal together but swiftly came to the conclusion that I really didn't have a clue where to start with them.
Good luck to the team who have to sift through this lot, should be an interesting few weeks reading.
