Wholeheartedly agree

It would be interesting to know what is considered Dylan's best....(?)

Probably Blood On The Tracks or Blonde On Blonde i think.

Or Highway 61 or Freewheelin'.

One of those 4, probably - maybe Blonde on blonde slightly ahead?
But not JWH, though it is staggeringly good.

I think these days, just like the best Beatles album has shifted from Sgt Pepper to Revolver, WYWH is probably regarded as their best. It is certainly my fave.

Yeah Blonde On Blonde as it's a consistently good double album with no filler, not too many of those about.

Thin Lizzy self titled debut over whatever Gorham/Robertson-era album is considered their best.

Good choice of band

perhaps some may say their earlier albums with Peter Green (Let's Play On for example) are better than both!

I agree regarding the perceived 'best' though...

.



So many different stages to Fleetwood Mac. Without doubt Then Play On is the best of the early stage and stands up fantastically well throughout, however, they were a different band then playing a different kind of music. I championed Then Play On once in Mojo magazine (and was published) saying what a great album it was but the Rumours band were totally different, playing very different music and so I feel that the two can't be really compared.

Probably not many Eagles fans on here, not many who would want to own up to it anyway but pretty sure that this is their perceived best:

But this is my favourite:

Now that's an interesting one!

I would agree that Aqualung was the most popular but do REAL Tull fans think it is regarded as their best?

I think not. I am sticking my neck out here but I would say that went to Thick as a Brick or Stand Up

I am sure there is a forum somewhere (Hoffman?) that has discussed this to death!

Nice to see you rate Heavy Horses as your fave - in that folk feel most would go for Songs from the Wood...

Good lad

This is my favourite Who record, not really sure what is their perceived best - Tommy, Who's Next, Quadrophenia, Live at Leeds?
