Top Four Bands of All Time

As Rated by Space Taken After Ripping from My CD Library*

1. Sonic Youth (906 MB)
2. Mogwai (800 MB)
3. They Might Be Giants (591 MB)
4. Modest Mouse (554 MB)

It’s interesting to think about — I think much of the ranking is how well they compress. I am, as you might guess, extremely particular about how I rip my CDs. It’s all high-bitrate-ceiling VBR, and it looks like Sonic Youth/Mogwai are chock-full of information that requires a lot of information to convey, as well as having long songs.
