Man, I don't think I'd be able to do Sonic Youth. I just like so much of their stuff so damn much to be able to rank them.

Good for you and your laughable opinion, but YOU are once again wrong.

No big deal though.I don't ever expect any musical knowledge to come from an uneducated, inexperienced kid like you.

Gotta agree with Wild a little bit Crowquill - you are letting the " I have a different opinion, LOOK AT ME" thing affect your judgment a little. The White Album is one of the best albums of all time. And Legendary Bands are Legendary for the sheer fact that their work is the stuff of musical legend. Whether or not you like their music is inconsequential.

It was like when the Best Band Polls were changed to Band Polls - because when people started voting for The Fray over The Who... and trying to justify it with laughable reasons (Well I like the Fray better because I'm just leaving Middle School and they speak to me - they are a better band). Hahahah. What I'm saying is- you can't deny credit where credit is due - and if you do deny it - your opinion is compromised. And I'm not JUST saying that to Crowquill - it's for everyone who is too trendy to give props to bands and artists that deserve it. I hate Metallica with all my soul because of the napster situation and they bitched about money... but you better believe that when someone brings up Master of Puppets - I'll say it's a damn good album. Even if I don't like the music.

It's like hating seafood, but going to a gourmet restaurant with a world-reknowned chef and having him serve you fish. You may not like the taste of fish- but you can't say he doesn't do what he does well can you?

Being mature about music is probably going to benefit you in the future. Dismissing the White Album as "not that great of an album" doesn't make you cooler or more insightful about music - it shows ignorance.

And I don't mean to jump all over your back about this Crowq - but it's ridiculous to see the same **** every time someone remarks about a classic album on musicbanter.

Yes but it goes both ways.
People just churn out the same names over & over again parrot fashion.It's like some people just got their whole music taste from a 'best albums of all times list'. There's no thought , no originality or no experimentation in these lists. The kind of people who are scared to call anything after 1980 a classic album (Although if they're really adventurous they might mention Nevermind , The Queen Is Dead & Doolittle). The kind of people who complain that music isn't as good as it used to be in the 60s & 70s while they listen to Night At The Opera for the millionth time instead of looking for new classics.

A lot of classic albums do nothing for me , you mention the White Album .... well I can see the Beatles influence in music I can see why it's a classic , after all it is the biggest band in the world not restricting themselves to 3 minute pop songs & experimenting with all sorts of things. Do I think it's a classic? Well no actually, I think only half of it is listenable & i'd much rather listen to Freak Out by Frank Zappa instead. But in my opinion the only reason it is a classic is because it's The Beatles , based on the actual content of the album I doubt it would get even a fraction of that attention had it been made by another band.I don't think that opinion makes me ignorant ,it just means i'm taking the album at face value.

To use your fish analogy , what is his fish recipe is the same one he's been doing for 40 years and you want to try something newer.

You have really mastered your craft when it comes to being wrong.

I can name for from each that I consider worth listening to.


Ride the Lightning
Master of Puppets
And Justice for All
Black Album... more on the mainstream side obviously, but I think its better that what most people give it credit for.


High Voltage (international version)
Highway to Hell
Back in Black
If You've Want Blood, You Got It


Uplight Mofo Party Plan
Mothers Milk

Led Zeppelin

Their first 7 albums, OMFG Bright Eyez discography is soooo much better.

And for the record Urban, not every Beatles album is rated highly, their very first album was only modestly recepted, and most opinions on Let It Be are pretty negative.

Besides this is favorite albums... Not four albums that some snobbish Indie kid has to like or else he/she is gonna take a sh*t on your personal tastes.

Does it really bug you and Urban that much that some people like Led Zeppelin and RHCP? Do you really lose sleep over people not appreciating how f*cking underground you are for thinking Indie and Britpop is the way of the world?

I think this thread could have been better worded, because not two people in the whole f*cking world are going to completely agree on who is and who isn't legendary. It should be called "your 4 favorite albums by favorite bands".

OK, Here I go.

David Bowie:

Aladdin Sane - My overall fave, I love it all.
Best songs: Aladdin Sane, Cracked Actor, Time, The Jean Genie

Diamond Dogs - A close second, sweet thing is superb. The chant at the end makes a few sour faces though.
Best songs: Diamond Dogs, Sweet Thing (Including Candidate and reprise), Rock 'n' Roll With Me, We Are The Dead

Heathen - I love this too, it's like my 2002 soundtrack.
Best songs: Sunday, Afraid, I Would Be Your Slave, 5.15 The Angels Have Gone

Earthling - A bit of a wierd choice, probably not in his best 4 but it's in my fave 4.
Best songs: Little Wonder, Seven Years In Tibet, Telling Lies, I'm Afraid Of Americans

Because I chose to play the fool in a six-piece band,
First-night nerves every one-night stand.
I should be glad to be so inclined.
What a waste! What a waste!
But I don't mind.
