I wouldn't pay attention here, everyone. He clearly doesn't know what he's talking about.

We should like most of them, just not The Doors.

Griff, did you just give Pink Moon a 0 out of 5 rating?


the ones i didn't rate are the one's i've never heard.


You don't happen to work for Rolling Stone, do you?


:lol:

Griff, you haven't heard "Fun House" ? That's strange...

All the ones with asterisks, are albums I have paid good money for (I don’t think copies should count.). Of the ones without asterisks, well it gals me that I don’t own them and probably will one day before I’m dead! Nice thread, most amusing. If I could, in this list, I would swap Are You Experienced? for Electric Ladyland.

Hey what's going on here? Did I miss a meeting or something? Do we hate these albums now? Or are we saying they're all classics?
Or are we suggesting that people say that they were influenced by this stuff when in fact they were not? But the influences influence the influences...

Let's start a new list:
1. Hamlet
2. Ulysses
3. War & Peace
4...

Er, both... Surprising because it's very famous and all that. Strange because you should like it.

In terms of speed of response, it was astonishing. I can't recall so many posts in such a short space of time. Tremendous effort by all.

It was great fun. I think everyone needed cheering up after posting on Peel all day. Kind of like The Beatles becoming massive in The States after the Kennedy assasination!

I understand that some people were upset with my comments back on page 10 of this thread. Well, it seems that my secretary (who types all of my tedious rantings) was "hitting the bottle" a bit and thus made a few typographical errors.

The offending quote:

king feeb wrote: Just about the only ones I don't like are TheFuckingDoors, Jeff FuckingBuckley's Grafuckingce and Jacko's Thrillfuckinger, which I would slag as highly overrated garbage. Anyone who likes these should slide down an incline of razor blades into a bath of salt! They should be forced to eat their own eyeballs, but only after devoring a bowl of Simon Cowell's feces! That'll teach them a lesson! HRRRUMPH! How dare people have different taste than I!


This quote should actually read:

king feeb wrote: Really I truly love TheFuckingDoors, Jeff FuckingBuckley's Grafuckingce and Jacko's Thrillfuckinger, which I would guess I've listened to maybe 500 times each. Anyone who likes these should be presented with a large sum of money, a full-body massage by the sexy Hollywood star or starlet of their choice and 79 cents off their next purchase of any flavor of Pringles Potato Crisps (while supplies last).

I apologize for any confusion or upset this unfortunate mistake may have caused.

Yeah. 'For Sale' is so next year.


Are you making fun of me?
I mean, why would anyone side with nathan to boost their reputation?

i know i'm probably bandwagon jumping here:
but i really like beatles for sale! its the first complete beatles album i heard and the only one i have on vinyl, its my mums(i've stolen it) and looking back its quite strange that it's the only proper beatles album she owned! i love the way it says,

'The kids of AD 2000 wil draw from the music much the same sense of well being and warmth as we do today'
i was always fscinated by this, and it also talks about picnicking on saturn!
plus babys in black and i don't want to spoil the party are ace!

probably stil not my fave though! so you should probably ignore what i just said!
