Here's my answer to my own question (in no particular order):

Modest Mouse - The Moon & Antarctica (best album of 2000, & possibly the most perfect album ever!!!) Dismemberment Plan - Emergency & I (best album of 1999) King Crimson - Red Pink Floyd - Piper At The Gates Of Dawn Fugazi - End Hits Knapsack - This Conversation Is Ending Starting Right Now Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream Radiohead - The Bends 311 - Transistor Velvet Underground - White Light, White Heat Bad Religion - Stranger Than Fiction Neil Young - Live Rust Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited Lou Reed - New York Soul Coughing - Irresistable Bliss

Whew, that was tough resisting the urge to add a few REM discs somewhere in there... but I scraped through :) looking forward to seeing everyone else's responses.

Dire straits-brothers in arms David gray-white ladder House martins- now thats what I call quite good Bare naked ladies-stunt Aerosmith- nine lives fatboy slim-you've came a long way baby UB40-the best of

Arter that I'm pretty lost I once attempted to take a liking to the doors and the velvet underground but it never rubbed off on me so now I've taken to collecting magazines with REM in them and really old interviews

-- dj lotus nugent (lotus85@another.com), August 24, 2000.

Mandy Moore- I wanna Be with you- So Real, Britany Spears- Oops, I did it again, Christen Agulara- Christen Agulara, Jessica Simpson- I think I'm inlove with you, Brandy- Never Say Never, Monica- The Boy Is Mine, And Alihia- One In A Million.

Yes, Ms. Stipe, there IS a reason I've remained enigmatic for so long........... I'm in jail!!

No, just kidding :)

The truth is, nobody ever asked before (sob, sob heheh). I am from Long Island, but right now I'm going to college in upstate New York. How about you? Out of curiosity, where is everybody from? It seems to me like there's a lot of people from the UK here, I could be wrong though... Anyway, later. :0
