either comparison warrants a listen in my book, Idiot and Lust for Life are among the finest late 70s albums

as far as other genres,

rap: tossup between Eminem, Kanye, Jay-Z (to jansz's dismay)

electronica: Daft Punk probably

don't know **** about modern r&b or country or blues or jazz

Well, Radiohead certainly made their mark, with Kid A, Amnesiac and In Rainbows, so I'll go for them. Otherwise it would be Arcade Fire, maybe. Neither of them has spawned endless amounts of copycats, though, or if so, I've never noticed.

I thought his Recovery album was fantastic, but his Relapse album was absolute garbage.

Didn't Jethro Tull beat out Metallica for an award in 2000? I'd say Jethro Tull is pretty obvious.

WOW my time machine missed by just that much.

I guess i'd side with the Radiohead fanboys then as they have been pumping out records and receiving accolades at a high level for some time now.

You can tell it's not 2000.

Think about it, if someone was judged to have made a better Rock album than Metallica in that year would it really be that much of a shock?
