3) R.E.M. - Reckoning [2 CD Deluxe Edition] [EXTRA TRACKS] [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED Reckoning originally came out in 1984 in an era when Stipe sat down like an embodied murmur on the American Bandstand steps during Q&A, but swung like a banshee in a drenching rain onstage in one of the best live shows I’d seen back then. It was one of those jingle-jangle mourning recordings bound to have a harrowing affect on me, mostly due to the haunting “So. Central Rain.” Who says you can’t do anything about the weather?
4) Neil Young - After the Gold Rush [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED] Remastered, yes, but always masterful, cohesive, and one of the most evocative albums I’ve ever heard.
5) The Pixies - Minotaur (Deluxe) I was once dropped off into the middle of the Arizona desert to run a record store and, oddly enough, I was turned on to records by this new Boston band called the Pixies. I was saved by loudQUIETloud. But no one cared because I was in the middle of the Arizona desert. Monster Pixies here.

8) Big Star - Keep An Eye On The Sky [BOX SET] [ENHANCED] [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED] Now I never travel far, without a big Big Star… invisible men who can sing in a visible voice…
9) Lou Reed - New Sensations [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED] Coney Island... Maybe. But I’ll take it.
