What does the “best 1,000 albums ever” mean and why are you doing this?

Yeah, I know it’s audacious, a little crazy (okay, maybe a lot cray cray), bordering on criminal nerdery.

But here’s what it’s NOT: a definitive list of the Greatest Albums of All-Time. This is 100% my own personal super biased, incredibly subjective take on what my top 1,000 albums are, ranked in painstaking order over the course of doing research for nearly a year, Rob from High Fidelity style.

What does Plumtree’s Mass Teen Fainting mean to me? What does it make me feel? Why is it exciting or compelling?

Plumtree has such a comfortable, inviting energy while at the same time consistently pumping out super catchy, upbeat, and fun pop punk with great harmonies and vocals. Mass Teen Fainting’s lead track, “Tropical,” is a perfect example of this.

Don’t let the casual-seeming vibe fool you though – there’s really inventive musicianship going on here, particularly the meshing of unique chord changes and wonderful vocal harmonies on songs like “Only in the Movies” and “The Phone, The Phone.”

“In the Sink” is such an interesting angle on pop punk: it both rocks but could almost be perfectly at home at a coffee shop (albeit a ‘90s hipster, indie rock kind of joint, mind).

For pure pop punk catchiness bliss, you can’t do much better than “I Don’t Know.”
