Goooooooooood call. Matthew Sweet is a power pop god, but holy shit has he gotten fat recently! I sure hope nothing's wrong with him...

If you like Matthew Sweet, Brendan Benson's The Alternative To Love is worth checking out.

Who's Next - Who
The Doors - Doors
Are You Experienced? - Hendrix
High Voltage - AC/DC
Back in Black - AC/DC
Led Zeppelin I - LZ

Am I dating myself?

Two years ago, I was on the table of the angioplasty room after resurgent heart symptoms (I had a stent go bad on me) about to get the bad news that I would need a double bypass.

Well, the technicians who work in the room are the jet pilot types in the hospital and always have rock playing. I perked up to listen and said, "Can't we do better than Bon Jovi?"

They replied, "Sure, what do you want to hear?"

I said, "How about AC/DC, but I'm not sure if 'Hells Bells' would be appropriate at the moment." They complied with some other AC/DC album.

The doctor came in a little later to give me the bad news and then asked the staff, "What's with the music?"

They smiled knowlingly and nodded, saying "Patient's choice!"

I'm doing ok BTW.

Really? Three pages and no mention of the man who made and ? Edited because 1) I didn't notice the nod to Jimi in the post directly above this one and 2) I was briefly overcome by music-snobbery-induced rage.

Altered Beast is quite good too. "Devil with the Green Eyes" and "Someone to Pull the Trigger" are in constant IPod rotation.

After the cover song thread, I've think the majority of the forum couldn't give a damn about Bob Dylan. How anybody can say Bryan Ferry's versions are superior to the original is beyond me. Sometimes this place can become just one big Bryan Ferry circle jerk.

Dylan is about as good as it gets. I doub't anyone other artist can compete with the sublime quality of this list (just a sample of his best)...

Another Side of Bob Dylan
Bringin' It All Back Home
Highway 61 Revisited
Blonde on Blonde
The Basement Tapes
John Wesley Harding
Blood on the Tracks
Desire
Infidels
Slow Train Coming

Yeah, that list pretty much nailed the essential Dylan. But I would add Freewheelin', Times..., and the compilations, Biograph, Bootleg Vol 3, Live 66 and 75.

I edited my post because I didn't want to start a huge music dork flame war, so instead of wagging my finger at other members I'll just say amen to aportnoy (although I don't know about the last two - no pun intended, har har...). It's sort of cheating because it's not a studio album, but my desert island album would be Live 1966, without a doubt. Also, I realize this thread is for favorite records, not a generic list of the all-time greatest; the above two happen to be a couple of my faves, but there's a ton of really good stuff on here, so keep 'em coming.

I just start the musical flame wars. I'm not cool enough to carry it through and defend my choices while bashing others.

Yeah, it's a tough call between listing "the classics" and really good under appreciated stuff.

The point of this thread, I thought, was to identify great albums...in that the whole work is exemplary. Because of that I have ignored alot of musicians that I love because, though there are stallar songs, the album in totality is lacking something.

But that's just me.

Still their best.
