As the member of a guitar band I would just like to offer my sincere apologies for the inordinate predominance of guitars in contemporary music.

This prompted by a recollection of the listening habits of myself and friends, aged 16, circa Xmas 2000.

Favourites were:

Dr Dre - 2001
Destinys Child - Writing's on the Wall
Steve Reich - New York Counterpoint
Doves - Lost Souls
Super Furry Animals - Guerilla
Beastie Boys - Anthology
The Beatles - White Album
Aphex Twin - The Richard D. James Album
Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP
A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory
The Flaming Lips - The Soft Bulletin.

What happened to this catholic openness?
