Gary Mulholland: 261 Greatest Albums Since Punk & Disco

I think a book was scheduled to come out, but it then vanished from amazon.com. Now, I found this on www.rocklist.net, under "The Year So Far." I liked his singles book, this would have been cool. Wonder if there are any commentaries to go along with it.

Re: Gary Mulholland: 261 Greatest Albums Since Punk & Disco

Great find, JR!

Re: Gary Mulholland: 261 Greatest Albums Since Punk & Disco

I counted the albums and came to 259.

1993 and 1994 have been lumped together above (and at rocklist.net), maybe two albums were lost together with the 1994 title?

Does anyone have this book and can answer this question?

I Had...

someone look over it, who has it, and he says:

Apparently, there's only 1 missing album: "Thermonuclear Sweat" by Defunkt.

Depeche Mode's Singles 81-85 and 86-98 are two separate albums but are listed together as one in that list.

Many thanks JR for this check!
