Without naming names, I notice that not everyone who says they voted actually did. Please, if you comment on your top five - vote for them!

I've never been a fan of Abbey Road either , weak material and horrible moog synth sounds. Give me Rubber Soul or A Hard Day's Night anyday.

Agreed! The two you mention are also my personal faves.

iI found five easily (ee above post if you care), but several others might have made a longer cut with different albums -- It's a Beautiful Day's second, for instance, or The Who Sell Out. But that isn't the game.

I voted for:

Neil - EKTIN
King Crimson - Court
CTA
Fleetwood Mac - Then Play On
Jethro Tull - Stand Up

Had they been available, Trout Mask Replica and Instant Replay (Monkees) would be in my 5. And on another day, Abbey Rd and Liege & Leaf may. make the list. Then there’s Green River and Bayou Country. And...

What a year.
