comments: Everything Sleater-Kinney releases is worth owning – I hope they come back. Fountains of Wayne, Aimee Mann, Brendan Benson, and Jon Brion make this the power-pop 10. Juliana Hatfield’s Beautiful Creature is an album that I forgot about but in putting this list together, I went back and realized that she came of age with this album.

    Of all your 60-100, I think the only 3 albums I own are in this "power-pop 10." Not a surprise, I guess. #83 would be higher on my list — then again, my list would probably only have 25 albums.
