Utterly predicatable, most influential claptrap.

Why not, Ced? This thread should end with another Teenage Fanclub debate. It would make the thread structurally perfect- it would form a coda like the cannons being fired off at the end of the "1812 Overature".

Oops make that- "1812 Fucking Overature".

Beatles For Sale is the bomb. I'd LOVE it to be next year's must-have accessory for sad Beatles fanatics who actually care about which of their albums it's cool to like at a given point in time.

I think Goldie's and Leg of Lamb's posts about Beatles For Sale are interesting in light of the original liner notes by Derek Taylor which state:

"There's priceless history between these covers. None of us is getting any younger. When, in a generation or so, a radio-active, cigar-smoking child, picnicking on Saturn, asks you what the Beatle affair was all about---'did you actually know them?'---don't try to explain all about the long hair and the screams! Just play the child a few tracks from this album and he'll probably understand what it was all about. The kids of ad 2000 will draw from the music much the same sense of well being and warmth as we do today."

I'm not either. Unfortunately, this ended up on the crazy slagging thread somehow.

Maybe they did, but it still sounds like someone wanking into a bucket.


One of the very posts that gets me laughing out loud with every re-read. Just shows how inept some music writers are. Only thing: I agree on the bucket, but to me it sounds like someone vomiting in one.

I own them all. I think I like pretty well all of them too.

In fact that list looks uncannily like my CD list when I first fetched up on the shores of Mojo.

Dude, no Let's Get It On?! That's surreal, for a soul fan like yourself. You also need Fun House and Tago Mago.

How did Who's Next escape this list? That dull slab of stadia rock is almost always the automatic response of best Who/ best album ever queries.

I still find it amazing that most have a vast majority of the list.
How does that happen?

Most everything by Jimi Hendrix
Ditto for the Doors
Jefferson Airplane
