Oww, my poor ears. My sister blares that crappy album out and I LOATHE it. It makes the two you mentioned sound decent by comparison. At least The Spice Girls were a marketting phenomenon (even if they were no-talent crap) and Avril's not that bad...

Ran that's 6. Would people please stop cheating? :p

I think he was referring to the same "he" as me. As in Ran. I could be wrong but I doubt The Calling are Brad's cup of tea. He's a man of discernment...

...although if that's his taste in sexual partners I might need to review that :p

Perhaps Haz just has a problem with the youth of the world isolated from the music of the past - the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, etc. - you know, the REAL music, heh.

Unfortunately, I'm not really asking for one's favorite artists, per se. Rather, I'm asking for one's favorite albums - completely different. Albums have a character and depth all their own. Listening to Nick Drake's three separate albums - Five Leaves Left, Bryter Layter, and Pink Moon - are experiences in themselves; though buying Way to Blue: An Introduction is a good way of literally introducing oneself to Nick Drake, it doesn't sum up his music, as how it was meant to be heard. The way artists attempt to craft their albums, is similar to the way Mozart or Beethoven attempted to craft their movements.

Hehe. Ain't that the fucking truth. Meh, just messing with you Chewie...apart from that one album it's not a bad selection...

I picked albums I consider to be great albums, regardless of if they're my favourite artists. I mean it does happen that my favourite albums are by some of my favourite artists but there's no Chili Peppers album on there (it was a tough choice between Dookie and Californication to be fair) and I'd consider the Chili Peppers to be a better band than Green Day, for example. Not to mention several other better bands who didn't get a mention just because I didn't feel their albums were as tightly woven.

Here's a band that everyone underestimates and forgets to mention: The Velvet Underground. I'd probably say their debut "The Velvet Underground & Nico" is probably overall a better project than their other subsequent releases, but it's simply amazing how melodic Lou Reed's music can be.

Supposedly, the difference between the musical class of such bands as the VU (or the Beatles, the Stones, etc.) is simply on a higher level than many recent bands of note. I'd probably say it's not necessarily the melodies (because almost anyone can make catchy songs), but it's the lyrics that change the whole look. (One of my college friends can write some of the catchiest songs ever, but if he were to write sappy love poems instead of the usual insecure, sophomoric idiosyncrasies, his music would suffer as whole.)

"But I'm gonna try for the kingdom if I can, 'cause it makes me feel like I'm a man, when I put a spike into my vein, and I can tell you things aren't quite the same, when I'm rushing on my run, and I feel like Jesus' son, and I guess that I just don't know - and I guess that I just don't know."

I don't think any band these days will be balls enough to actually talk about such things as drug abuse - and with such an intensity as Lou Reed's off-key voice and John Cale's incessant viola. (Of course, if you would prefer some of the VU's dreamier tunes, check out 'Loaded'. "Who Loves The Sun?", "Sweet Jane", and "Rock & Roll" are three classic tunes.)

But then again, it's not just about the candidness of the musicians, but these days, it would appear as if musicians are more likely to "sell out" to a record contract, rather than keep with the roots of their music - which is about originality, emotional depth, and most importantly, the voice of the musicians themselves.

I know I've already put my 2 cents into this thread, but I would like to express my joy at how many times The Who and the Rolling Stones have come up on these lists. I can't believe I forgot the Stones on my list.

I probably need to be shot in the face.

Including The Who in your list grants immunity from being shot in the face. ;)
