I agree that this compilation is way too scewed to the 60's and 70's.

You can add Todd Rundgren's "Accapella" to the 80's list.

You're missing a top 5 album and for that you have to go back to the 50's: Frank Sinatra "Sings for Only The Lonely".
It's an essential that should be up with Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On".

Three Steely Dan albums made it to that list (four if you count Donald Fagen's album), and Aja is not one of them?!

Yeah, looks like a playlist for a 60's / 70's "all rock / all the time" station or something, with some serious overemphasis on your favorit bands. How in the heck could you have Pink Floyd Piper at the Gates of Dawn and be missing DSOTM, The Wall or Wish You Were Here? Seems kind of goofy and suggests the list is not very well thought out. Me thinks you will get lots of "suggestons>" heh heh.. BTW, shouldn't this be over in the chit chat forum?

yeah, though it is a great pink floyd album, piper is not their greatest. I would go for either "The Wall," "Dark Side . . .," or "Animals" although I have a soft spot for "Meddle."

I picked up the Boston CD about two years ago after not hearing it for 20. It's still too sweet.

Nice to see The Notorious Byrd Brothers on the list. Way underrated album.

First live gig I ever saw was at the old Boarding House in San Francisco in '78. It was a reunion of 4 of the 5 original Byrds for the first and only time since 1965: Roger McGuin, Gene Clark (RIP), Chris Hillman, and David Crosby for three roof-raising encores.

the first five(?) albums with Crosby are their best, after that they went astray until "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" which is a classic.

Not many aware, but this is Crosby's last album with them. He quit the band before the release, and is represented by the horse.

He's lucky he got that end.

According to the folks at snopes.com, that's a myth (although Crosby, to this day, doesn't think so).

I like Roger McGuinn's comment: "If we had intended to do that, we would have turned the horse around."

The Kinks' "Something Else" LP from 1967 needs to be on any top albums list. Ray Davies is one of the best songwriters of the 60s, and this album is his finest hour.

Also, I'd take Neil Young's "After the Gold Rush" WAY over "Tonight's the Night."

Captain Beefheart And The Magic Band

WHO? They're listed twice. I've heard of everyone else on the list, though most of them are older than I am (30's). Also surprised to not see U2 on the list, when REM & Talk Talk & Nirvana are. Maybe U2's "Unforgettable Fire", unless they read either RS or Billboard calling it one of the worst albums of all times. And yes, Boston is great.

Captain Beefhart was a vocalist (among other things) for Frank Zappa back in the 70's. He got his own recording contract and went wild. Trout Mask Replica is his best 'known' work. it's very werid avant-garde stuff.

Actually, if I had to pick only one, it would be the greatest live album in all of Rock'n'Roll:

Also arguably the first "punk rock" album.

You forgot the greatest "live" album ever made- Kiss' Alive II. Just got hold of a vinyl copy again recently, and it's still the best. Was glad to see Van Morrison in the list. I've thought for years that it should be illegal for anyone else so sing "Moon Dance"- ever. Like Janis Joplin and "Bobby McGee", it's the definitive version, and can't be matched.

Meddle is a great album. Good to see others appreciate it, as well.

Two of the top five albums ever made are Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here. Any list that doesn't have both of those in it is automatically disqualified. Although, Animals was always my favorite (it's still far superior to most of the albums listed here.)
