PJ Harvey - Rid of Me, Is This Desire
Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger, Superunknown

My tastes in pop music seem pretty middle of the road when I look at my list. I like the 1890's list. How did Debussy, Ravel or Mahler not make it? The Busoni is a great piece. I have yet to run across a disc of Sibelius chamber music.
