Before I went into studio last night I basically performed surgery on my iTunes playlist — everything old is out, everything old is in. I had been going through cd’s in my house hoping for a sudden influx of NEW MUSIC to no avail (Warner and EMI had better work their give-me-music-magic), and I found myself uploading a ton of GRUNGE (which I’m sure you are totally shocked about, right), which made me think about TOP TEN FORMATIVE YEARS ALBUM LIST. WOAH RUN-ON SENTENCE.
