  1. 33 1/3: Dummy

    33 1/3 Volume 85: Portishead's Dummy


    This is a thoroughly researched exploration of one of the most original, unexpected, and durable British albums of the 1990s. An album which distilled a genre from the musical, cultural, and social ether, Portishead's "Dummy" was such a complete artistic achievement that its ubiquitous successes threatened to exhaust its own potential. Learn More
  2. 33 1/3: Fear Of Music

    33 1/3 Volume 86: Talking Heads' Fear Of Music


    Fear of Music, the third album by Talking Heads, was recorded and released in 1979. It is, like each of their first four albums, a masterpiece. Edgy, paranoid, funky, addictive, rhythmic, repetitive, spooky, and fun - with Brian Eno's production, it's a record that bursts out of the downtown scene that birthed the band, and hints at the directions (positive and negative) they'd take in the near future. Learn More
  3. 33 1/3: Flood

    33 1/3 Volume 88: They Might Be Giants' Flood


    For a few decades now, They Might Be Giants’ album Flood has been a beacon (or at least a nightlight) for people who might rather read than rock out, who care more about science fiction than Slayer, who are more often called clever than cool. Neither the band’s hip origins in the Lower East Side scene nor Flood’s platinum certification can cover up the record's singular importance at the geek fringes of culture. Learn More
  4. 33 1/3: Andrew W.K.'s I Get Wet

    33 1/3 Volume 89: Andrew W.K.'s I Get Wet


    "It's Time To Party," the first track off of I Get Wet, opens with a rapid-fire guitar line — nothing fancy, just a couple crunchy power chords to acclimate the ears — repeated twice before a booming bass drum joins in to provide a quarter-note countdown. Learn More
  5. 33 1/3: Electirc Ladyland

    33 1/3 Volume 8: Jimi Hendrix's Electric Ladyland


    Electric Ladyland is one of the greatest guitar albums ever made. Learn More
  6. 33 1/3: Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Volume II

    33 1/3 Volume 90: Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Volume II


    Extravagantly opaque, willfully vaporous — Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works Volume II, released by the estimable British label Warp Records in 1994, rejuvenated ambient music for the Internet Age that was just dawning. Learn More
  7. 33 1/3: Gang of Four's Entertainment!

    33 1/3 Volume 91: Gang of Four's Entertainment!


    Following hard on the explosion of British punk, in 1979 Gang of Four produced post-punk’s smartest record, Entertainment! Learn More
  8. 33 1/3: Richard Hell and the Voidoids' Blank Generation

    33 1/3 Volume 92: Richard Hell and the Voidoids' Blank Generation


    To wander the streets of a bankrupt, often lawless, New York City in the early 1970s wearing a T-shirt with PLEASE KILL ME written on it was an act of determined nihilism, and one often recounted in the first reports of Richard Hell filtering into the pre-punk UK. Learn More
  9. J Dilla's Donuts

    33 1/3 Volume 93: J Dilla's Donuts


    From a Los Angeles hospital bed, equipped with little more than a laptop and a stack of records, James “J Dilla” Yancey crafted a set of tracks that would forever change the way beatmakers viewed their artform. Learn More
  10. The Beach Boys' Smile

    33 1/3 Volume 94: The Beach Boys' Smile


    Smile is not merely a great unfinished album, but a living work of art that is all at once expansive, indeterminate, and resolutely pop. Learn More
  11. Oasis' Definitely Maybe

    33 1/3 Volume 95: Oasis' Definitely Maybe


    Oasis’s incendiary 1994 debut album Definitely Maybe managed to summarize almost the entire history of post-fifties guitar music from Chuck Berry to My Bloody Valentine in a way that seemed effortless. Learn More
  12. Liz Phair's Exile in Guyville

    33 1/3 Volume 96: Liz Phair's Exile in Guyville


    Although Exile in Guyville was celebrated as one of the year's top records by Spin and the New York Times, it was also, to some, an abomination: a mockery of the Rolling Stones' most revered record and a rare glimpse into the psyche of a shrewd, independent, strong young woman. Learn More
  13. Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

    33 1/3 Volume 97: Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy


    In the first decade of the twenty-first century, Kanye West created the most compelling body of pop music by an American artist during the period. Learn More

    33 1/3 Volume 99: Sigur Rós' ( )
