THE TOP TEN (for Craig D)

OK - Many thanks to Craig D for the (so far) lone response in Davy Jones obit.  And in light of that, I want to take another step away from Politics for a minute and have a little fun with - and conduct a little poll about - music. 

So here's what we're going to do. I'm going to list, in no partcular order, what I BELIEVE the top ten albums of all time are.

RULE #1: If you READ IT? You MUST comment.

RULE #2: Your comments must and may only consist of your own top-ten Albums list. No extensive or disrespectful opining about my choices or anyone elses, and no pissing contests! (And only TEN, limit one per band, and no TIES allowed!)


But I DO want, very much, everyone to participate. I'm interested to see what will come out of it.

So here's mine:

The Beatles -  Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967)

The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced? (1967)

Led Zepplin - IV (runes, zofo, etc...) (1971)

Black Sabbath - Paranoid (1971)

Bob Dylan - Blood on the Tracks (1975)

The Eagles - Hotel California (1976)

Pink Floyd - The Wall (1979)

Ozzy Ozbourne - Blizzard of Ozz (1981)

Guns 'n Roses - Appetite for Destruction (1987)

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik (1991)

(OK, so it ended up in chronoligical order. Yours doesn't have to be! LOL)

    BOB & RAY - On A Platter
    HOMER & JETHRO - The Worst Of...
    Various Artists - Nuggets
    FRANK ZAPPA - Apostrophe

  2. Geez, such a straightjacket. My list makes no sense if I don't get to haughtily sneer at everyone else.
