I can't think of a title.

This is easily one of the most ridiculous, unstructured albums ever. It doesn't even pretend to have quality-control of any kind. And yet, I'm floored by how great it is. Granted, it's a mixed bag (boy is that an understatement) but when it shines, it shines.

Definitely sample the songs beforehand, but if you're looking to buy I'd call it a good gamble.

From Cassette to iPod

The irony of this set of cassette recordings ending up on iTunes is not lost on me, but The Freed Man's humble origins shouldn't prejudice anyone. Sebadoh's Eric Gaffney and Lou Barlow wrote some of the catchiest, weirdly sugary pop songs of the late 80s/early 90s, or any period for that matter. This is pained, beautiful and sometimes hilarious -- but almost always brilliant -- songwriting. When two punk rock kids bump up against Brill Building genius, this is what you get. And who doesn't love their adolescent lo-fi take on Yellow Submarine?
