and you thought i trolled your thread earlier!

sweet pick on Getz/Gilberto by the way. i'm pretty unfamiliar with most bossa nova stuff but that record is solid all around. The Girl from Ipanema is awesome. and you don't need to keep defending your album choices for our benefit; just review them.

Well I thought you were gonna start trolling it up but I was wrong, you gave your opinion, and didn't take it any further than that.

Unfan never stops, he WANTS to turn this into another endless, crappy argument over RATM, because he's a troll and that's what he does, I'm not gonna let him do it to this thread and if he keeps trying I'm gonna give him an infraction.

Johnny Marr now plays for my least favorite band in the world. But I love this album. That doesn't make me a Smiths fan, I'm not. I could do without their other albums entirely, this album works for me because they spreaded their wings a little, they experiement with many styles, and it all appeals to me a lot more than what they usually dish out, it doesn't sound like The Smiths that much, go figure. Morrisseys lyrics with his "I'm so painfully shy and lonely" BS, lame pseudo intellectualism, ironic humor and moral imperialist propagonda (the awful title track for example) still grates the f*ck out of me. But the music here makes up for that, Johnny Marr really kicks ass on this album, and the rhythm section, heck even Morrisseys vocals are good here. Just don't make me listen to anything else by this band, please.
Favorite tracks: The Headmaster Ritual, I Want the One I Can't Have, That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore, How Soon is Now?, Barbarism Begins At Home.

66. The Joshua Tree - U2

Favorite tracks: I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, Bullet The Blue Sky, Red Hill Mining Town, In God's Country, Trip Through Your Wires.
Some more great picks, especially these two. I'm not so much into the Smiths but should probably check Meat Is Murder out soonish. As for U2 (great description btw), they do get a lot of sh1t on these boards just because Bono is Bono, but I'd still recommend this album to anyone. I despise most of their output after this though.

Good call with Forever Changes as well - one of my absolute favourites.

65. Wowee Zowee - Pavement



Ah yes, let me tell you a little something about Pavement, I like Pavement (as overrated as they may be), I just hate the revolution of awful American lo fi indie music that they're mostly responsable for. Starting with Slanted & Enchanted, which I like, but not for the same reason everyone else does, I don't consider it some kind of masterpiece of genius songwriting, I just think it's hilarious, and so not to get depressed I try to convince myself they weren't actually being serious, then came Crooked Rain which I just didn't get into. Now here comes Wowee Zowee, I heard this, but not expecting the third time to be the charm, and I was pleasantly surprised, this was the first album where Pavement actually started to become competent songwriters and musicians. And so Pavement fans were pleased by this musical breakthrough right? Well of course not, once you stop copying The Fall, learn how to play your instruments and get a good producer to make your album NOT sound like it was recorded in the drummers van, that constitutes "selling out" in the indie-verse, and while that's not to say Pavement fans don't give it credit, but the more Pavement actually began to find themselves, find influences outside of post punk and actually become descent musicians, the more they alienated their fanbase. Bah, I'll never understand indie. And just for Urban, hipsters.
Favorite tracks: AT&T, Father To A Sister Of Thought, Flux=Rad, Grave Architecture, Kennel District, Rattled by the Rush.

64. Morning View - Incubus



Make Yourself was one of the first albums I ever owned and I've been big on this band ever since. Picking a favorite is hard, between this and SCIENCE it's very close, but this one takes it by just a smidgen. This album doesn't get a lot of love, even from Incubus fans, since it's considered the point when they sold out their funky roots for a more mainstream sound, and that may be true. But whatever, I don't pick albums for their authenticity. Incubus are a rariety among modern mainstream rock bands in that I don't mind that they're played on the radio a lot, I still love their singles, especially from this album. But the best stuff is the proggier tracks. This is such a mellow album, and I like the mix of electronica, eastern sounds and hard rock, I still think Incubus are a pretty original band, but because they're so FM radio friendly people tend to overlook that. I love this band and I don't care if their fanbase consists almost exclusively of 13 year old girls. =D
Favorite tracks: Wish You Were Here, Just A Phase, Mexico, Echo, Under My Umbrella, Aqueous Transmission.

63. Low End Theory - A Tribe Called Quest



At a time when NWA were giving us gangsta rap, it was refreshing to see somebody take hip hop to a different direction, enter these guys. Even your mom and dad might like them, because unlike most rappers Q Tip and Phife Dawg enunciate their words pretty cleary, and those jazzy beats are hard for anyone to resist. Their laid back rapping style has sometimes been misunderstood as a lack of "mad skillz" but that of course is bullshizzle (god I'm so lame). They're two of the best MC's around. If you're like Sean Hannity or any other clueless old white guy and believe in the stereotype that all rap is for misogynistic, illiterate thugs. Then this is an album worth checking out, even if you don't like it, it deserves admiration.
Favorite tracks: Excursions, Check the Rhime, Jazz (We've Got), Scenario, Butter, Verses From The Abstract.

62. Demons & Wizards - Uriah Heep



We all have guilty pleasures, and this is mine. Think Tenacious D, but in the 70s and deadly serious, that's Uriah Heep. The undeniably cheesiest band of their time, with their knee high platform boots, mullets, porno staches, endless dueling guitar solos, shrieking falsetto vocals, Heavy Metal magazine style album covers and lyrics about... well, demons & wizards, this is power metal before it even existed. And it's f*cking awesome. Seriously, The Wizard may have you laughing uncontrollably, but it's so damn catchy, you'll never get it out of your head. And the duel guitar solos in Circle of Hands, it will melt your face with it's awesomeness. Goddamn I love this band.
Favorite tracks: The Wizard, Traveller in Time, Poet's Justice, Circle of Hands, Paradise, The Spell.

Props for ATCQ and Pavement. I much prefer that to Slanted and Enchanted. A few surprising albums popping up on this list

Well...I'm not a 13 year old girl, but I DO love Incubus, and this album is right up there at the top of my list. Aqueous Transmission is what really makes this album IMO. Good picks with Just a Phase and Wish You Were Here too.

I always had the idea that Wowee Zowee was a fan favourite, tied with Slanted. Nethertheless it's a great album and my favourite by them too.
