Power Pop Appreciation List

With this list, I hope to bring some more attention to some excellent and remarkable albums that I discovered on my journey, some albums couldn't be considered strictly Power Pop, but its presence is clear, and some songs represent very well what the genre can do at its best, hope you guys discover some nice gems. It actually took quite a while for me to discover that Power Pop was the amalgam of all the influences and sounds that I always loved distilled into one awesome music genre. Most of the time, there's the jangle and twang that I adore, the sensibility and vision for almost perfect vocal harmonies and pop melodies, but also some aggressiveness and punch contributing to the Power of the Pop. I had already read Power Pop somewhere, but I've always thought it was something more close to glam, or excessive and commercial pop/rock music, how wrong I was.
