That would be the the exact right answer. Instead of bashing another's recs post a list of your own recs...

I disagree with many choices, but they are definitely not BAD choices, and are far less mainstream which is definitely cool!!!

Your lists are so incredibly pretentious. I mean in 69 look who you put, yet not one Led Zeppelin album made it. Even if you dont like them that **** changed all rock music and more FOREVER. Not to mention all the Beatles albums you skipped that were probably the most revolutionary albums ever made. Jimi Hendrix....?? This is stuff that changed the face of all music and a best of list without it or at least giving it a nod is worthless. Beefheart but no Jimmy Page...?

I dont know if you are making fun of me or not but regardless my point stands. Any type of fan or person should judge best albums not only on their own ear but the amount of influence it has on later generations.

I was actually agreeing with you and criticizing Streetwaves choices. If you knew my music tastes you'd know I was a huge Led Zep fan. BTW we can run down this thread as Streetwaves isn't coming back on here.

Ah good! Internet sarcasm/jokes/insults are hard to understand sometimes. The guy tried at least but definitely failed.

Most poseurs have their threads full up with the likes of Velvet Underground, Captain Beefheart and Miles Davis.

In the UK we quite often keep the original French spelling of these words "poseur" "centre" and "minute" are three of these numerous examples.

So then if one has different tastes than our own, they are automatically pretentious and poseurs?

I am a big fan of Led Zeppelin & Hendrix. I also agree with the fact that the Beatles later records were revolutionary. Having said that, however, there are other albums that were also VERY important and influential.

When dealing with only 5 albums from an entire year, clearly there are going to be deserving records left off. Just because your 5 and Streetwaves don't match is not an indication of a problem. Unless you just insist on making it one.

Trout Mask has influenced MANY MANY over the years. King Crimson's debut is THE original Prog masterpiece. Miles Davis In a Silent Way was another EPIC album that is arguably the first Jazz Fusion album ever (apologies to Mr Coryell). Have you guys even heard Gal Costa? She is phenominal. What a brilliant piece of psychedelia. I know it is sung in Spanish, so it probably sucks...

I was not familiar with Don Cherry, so I went to allmusic and read their review of his 1969 release. The first sentence is "Eternal Rhythm is a masterpiece on several levels."



I mean disagree sure. There is a good argument to be made for LZ or Hendrix or Abbey Road, But Streetwaves' 5 from 1969 is SOLID. Even if some disagree.
