The Sputnik Classic Album Spotlight

So as the torch for the infinite playlist has been passed onto Brostep - who is doing an excellent job with it I might add - I have decided to once again start a little user-involved project of my own. I've seen Adam Knott do it on ByVolume with The Wrens' album The Meadowlands, and I think Pitchfork did something similar. I'd like to start a "Sputnik Classic Album Spotlight" or "Classics Revisted" blog in which we take a look back at a revered sputnik classic, such as Brand New's TDAGARIM or Neutral Milk Hotel's In The Aeroplane Over The Sea, and offer track by track blurbs as well as other thoughts and insights. Once again, I'll need any and all willing hands on deck - I'd love to see the users get some blog exposure, but staff and contribs are welcome to participate as well. Below are 7 albums I'm entertaining as possibilities for the first ever installment of this series. Please vote on which one you'd like to see in the Spotlight Blog, or if you have another suggestion, let me know and I'll consider adding it if it gathers enough support. Later on, I'll post a follow-up list to gather writers and sort out responsibilities. If you already know you're interested in contributing to this series, shoutbox me and I'll try to give you top-priority if I think you'll be a dependable writer. Thank you in advance for your involvement!
