    I like Ghosts of the Great Highway, but tend to find his albums kind of exhausting. Not in a bad way, really, but just in a way that I don't revisit them much and tend not to feel that much of an urge to dive into his back catalog. So I haven't heard the Red House Painters stuff yet.

    I hate your one-album-per-artist rule because it excludes Born to Run, which just doesn't seem right knowing you! Great list otherwise, though. Lots of albums on here I love (and lots of albums we wrote about for Back Pages).

    Looking through this thread and there seems to be a lot of love for The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me. It totally deserves it.

    The list would be half albums from about 3-4 artists otherwise! But yeah the eternal shuffle between Darkness, BTR, and The River goes on. Almost put The River just because my love for it is even greater at the moment since the show in February.

    We should revive MBP someday in an alternate universe where I have the time...

    If you bold the ones you haven't heard I could assist you in prioritizing! Especially based upon the stuff I know you dig.

    @FurtherFromSky Moderator

    Haha, I need to go and flesh out my top 50, but I don't think I could do the one-per-artist rule. It just wouldn't be an accurate reflection of my favorites. My favorite artists are my favorite artists because they've released a bunch of different albums I love, you know?

    And I would love to bring back MBP someday, even if it's just one piece every once in a blue moon.
