Hey Carl!
Awesome lists!
In case you're wondering what you might want to check out from your wish list, of the albums I've heard on your list, I can heartily recommend:
Rowe/ Lehn/Schmickler
Set Fire to Flames
Non-Prophets (skip Hymie's Basement, also on Lex, and you gotta hear DM & Jemini!!!)
Kevin Drumm

and heartily discourage you from listening to:
Ms John Soda
David Silvain
Yasunao Tone

anyway -- cool lists!
