This Year's Model is one of my favorite albums.
 
2014-03-29 02:05:32 PM  
I think I'd have to throw Disraeli Gears in there. Just sayin'.

Too much rap and hip hop shiat on that list.

Hmmm...perhaps Simon & Garfunkel's Sounds of Silence and Chicago's Chicago album should also be on that list.
 
2014-03-29 02:22:45 PM  
Kind of surprised Pinkerton didn't make it on there. Then again, the article used the phrase "neoprimitivist acid rock," so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

Oh, well.

Every song on Led Zeppelin II is better than every song on Nevermind.

Glad to see The Bends on there.  It was far more popular in the UK than stateside, sometimes it gets overlooked.
 
2014-03-29 04:20:04 PM  
The Slim Shady LP should be on there too.
 
2014-03-29 04:20:10 PM  
Jane's Addition 'Nothing's Shocking, and Judas Priest 'Sad Wings of Destiny' come to mind.

Hell yes to Chicago.  Still have my dad's vinyl copy, and throw it on now and then.

Interesting list and many of the farkers' choices are spot on.

Picking at a nit: 'The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle''s 'Incident on 57th St.' is not an in-concert 'wear horse' like Rosilita for the simple fact that after about 1975 he rarely played it live while Roselita was just about played to death.

Personally, I never want to hear it again.

Honestly I love all their stuff. But the Brown Album is hands down my favorite. All the tracks mix together seamlessly and there isn't a dog in the bunch. In Sides is really good, too. Probably my number two pick. The live collection is worth getting, too.

I've seen them live probably half a dozen times and "Satan" is always a showstopper (well, that and the live version of Halcyon).

Halcyon - Live

Skip to around 5 mins in for the fun part.

i ordered green, brown and in-sides simply upon a couple snippets and a little reading.  My favorite stuff from bands I enjoy most always revolves around the bands' live material so consider your recommendation added to my order.

At 57, I've finally discovered techno and what little I've come across hits close to home.   Not only do I enjoy the listening thing, my workouts are always uplifted when included on the playlist.  Thank you for the bump.

Should I order the 2012 release or the 2008 import?  Format: CD
 
2014-03-30 03:18:53 AM  
Continue ... Of the brown album.
 
2014-03-30 03:24:44 AM  
Again, the brown album .... The Peel Sessions  (full brown album + 4 tunes)?

These different versions drive me nuts.  I'm ordering from amazon.

/ catching some shut eye, see you in the morn.  Thanks again.

I'm not sure what the difference is, so I'm not going to be much help there. Though I would say to avoid anything that messes with the track listing on the cover I posted upthread, as the songs mix together quite nicely and that could be ruined by changing the order or inserting other tracks in between.

But you're welcome on the suggestions. Always more than happy to evangelize for one of my favorite bands.

This is a pretty good overview of their live stuff. With bonus video goodness.

Do the Beatles have to be on every goddamn "best" list?
Glad to see Paul's Boutique mentioned, it changed music copyright laws.
Also glad The Bends made the cut.

Huh. Paranoid.  You passed this test, list, but be aware that there are many more.
