Interesting list. I certainly agree with the White Album and the Wall. However, even though I love the Who, I was never really a big fan of Quadrophenia. There are really only 2 or 3 memorable songs on it. And ditto for Physical Graffiti. It is in some respects my least favorite Led Zeppelin album. I would have added Elton John's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road to the list, which is easily his best work and is a double album.

Wow -- I agree with nearly all of those.

I'm sorry about this folks.. my grandpa and his friends had a little too much "glaucoma medication" and got on the internet again.

I'd love to put on Jerry Cantrell's Degradation Trip, but I can't think of a single one of those albums I'd take off the list.

There was an article in today's paper about them. Something about the lead singer reading a book and then writing a song about one of the characters the next day.

The White Album would have been a magnificent single album.

As a double album, it was overly padded and about half crap.

/and the album version of Revolution was shiat compared to the single version.
 
2014-01-11 07:34:38 PM
I'd agree unconditionally with:
London Calling
Blonde on Blonde
Exile on Main Street

But the list needs to kick some of the others out to make from for:
Trout Mask Replica
Double Nickels on the Dime
Daydream Nation
Electric Ladyland

Solid picks, IMO, but yeah, looks a little dated. I think it says more about RS readers and the onions on their belts than double albums.

This is not an opinion I can get behind.  Not in the least.  If anything, I am 100% opposite in that feeling on the album, in that there's 2 or 3 songs I  don't like on it.  My least favorite one is probably LZIII, and Physical Graffiti is one of my favorites.  (Not *the* favorite, mind you; that goes to Houses.)

No argument there. And possibly Tago Mago.
 
2014-01-11 08:27:00 PM
London Calling and At Fillmore East should be the entire list. Vastly better than everything else on the list.
 
2014-01-11 08:27:16 PM
The White Album sucked.  There.  I said it.
 
2014-01-11 08:29:26 PM
I'm sorry, the fact that Songs in the Key of Life was not only number 1, but didn't even make that list, leads me to suspect whoever compiled it was trolling.

I mean come the fark on.
 
2014-01-11 08:30:07 PM
Finally a Rolling Stones list where I own most of the albums. 8 actually. I may have all ten but I'd have to look at my digital collection.

I still don't get the love for the Stones' Exile. I have all of their albums but I could never get the love for it. Maybe i need to give it another listen.

No Goodbye Yellow Brick Road? Chicago Transit Authority?
 
2014-01-11 08:30:28 PM
not only not number 1,
 
2014-01-11 08:30:57 PM
I have been listening to Yellow and Green from Baroness non stop since I got it last month. The only thing on that list that I might take off is The Stones.

Revolution #9 opened this junior high school student's ears to the idea of audio collage, and I am grateful for that.

There's good songs and all, but the first three (or in my opinion, four) albums definitely fall into your point of view.

Thought the same thing about Kiss Alive My grandparents bought it for me when I was 7

Trust me, I won't put a pistol to your head if you have a different opinion.  If you present your opinion in a coherent fashion I'll read it with an open mind.

Zip City summed up my high school years.  I haven't listened to their last two albums but from about 2000-2007 there wasn't a better band.

That opening guitar note on Statesboro Blues damn near brings me to tears when I hear it

2wolves: If you present your opinion in a coherent fashion I'll read it with an open mind.


Sounds like a lot of work.

I am not even a fan of The Who, to be honest.  But, their music is pretty impressive in its composition, execution and variety.  I think there are lots of legitimate negative things that can be said about them, but the idea that their music hasn't aged well, to me, is ludicrous.

Fantastic album. Although my favorite Baroness record is still Blue Record.

I agree with Fillmore East. I did vast amounts of drugs to that. The only thing that kept me from OD'ing was knowing I had to keep alert enough to turn the records over.
 
2014-01-11 08:46:34 PM
I'd add:

Rush: Chronicles
Black Sabbath: We sold our soul
Deep Purple: Nobody's perfect
Frankie Goes to Hollywood: Welcome to the pleasure dome
Husker Du: Zen Arcade
The Kinks: One for the road
William Shatner: Seeking Major Tom
U2: Rattle and Hum
 
2014-01-11 08:48:33 PM
Does Double Nickels On The Dime count?

I'd put London Calling number 1. The Beatles, Stones, etc., are all baggy, the Dylan is good but not his definitive.  The Clash is superb all the way around.

Isn't that two single albums which were reissued in a double disc set?

FriarReb98: 2wolves: Over all The Who's music is not aging well.

There's good songs and all, but the first three (or in my opinion, four) albums definitely fall into your point of view.


Their very earliest albums suffered from some crap production as did many, but certainly not all, from that era.

Apostrophe and Overnight Sensation were two separate albums.  Apostrophe was a FZ album, and Overnight was a Mothers of Invention album.

thesharkman: No Goodbye Yellow Brick Road?


Fantastic album. Not a stinker on the whole thing. First double-album I ever owned.

And I'm sorry, but live albums don't belong on the list.

Here's the weakest 10 minutes on that:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3p_xAToFzck

Yea, egregiously bad call for not putting that album in the top 5.
 
2014-01-11 08:52:35 PM
Here's how my list would go:

1. Rolling Stones - Exile on Main Street
2. The Beatles - White Album
3. The Clash - London Calling
4. Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti
5. Van Morrison - It's Too Late to Stop Now
6. Little Feat - Waiting for Columbus
7. Pink Floyd - the Wall
8. Bob Dylan - Blonde on Blonde
9. Jimi Hendrix - Electric Ladyland
10. Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

Honorable Mentions:

Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie & The infinite Sadness
Bob Dylan - Blonde on Blonde
Stevie Wonder - Songs in the Key of Life
