Agreed

I agree that Dark Side of The Moon is one fabulous piece of music. I am 41 and I have been listening to it since I was a teenager.

Some other candidates for the title of greatest ever:

1.The Beatles-Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
2. Frank Zappa-You Can't Do that on Stage Anymore Volume 1
3. The Rolling Stones-Let it Bleed
4. The Who-Who's Next
5. Beck-Odelay
6. David Bowie-Scary Monsters (Fripp's guitar is just incredible on this)

Stones - Exile on Main St. is my favourite :)

I agree with the Bowie album though. He's a legend in rock and roll. Alter-egos and awesome lyrics make him a winner in my book!


awww you're right :)

i just posted one though.

the who have the guiness record for loudest concert. they rock. baba oreily, awesome guitar on that track.

Hmm..

i can safely say, i can pop in ANY stones album, and be entertained. They're music is easy to listen to, great beat, and very child friendly. Unlike some of the music nowadays, too much garbage being eaten up by teens.

Whatever happened to the GOOD music? guess there's none left to be made.

I don't know-could be a bunch of things, maybe we are getting old :) Or maybe we just have not heard the really good stuff from the current generation????

For example-have you listened to The White Stripes? Great stuff :)

The new Jane's Addiction is a really great straight forward rock record without a weak song in the bunch.

I also really dig The Mars Volta. Definitely worth checking out!

Neither of these are in the realm of Dark Side but what is??? :D

The white stripes?
Heck yes! they rule.

Jack white is a god on his gee-tar :)

I have all 4 of their albums. My favourite has to be "White Blood Cells". Shame they have really broken into the mainstream yet, they'd be well accepted. Indy-Rock isnt everyone's favourite genre.

Nitro: The new Jane's Adiction is awesome. I picked it up 2 days ago, and just ripped it. Really good stuff. Though the lyrics could be a bit more tuned, but never the less it rules.

Hey Jackonicko:

I agree with your choices, but i'd have to pick "The Stone Roses" over "Second Coming" and "Mezzanine" over "Blue Lines". To each his own, eh? ;)

Second Coming is widely thought of as the inferior album to The Stone Roses but I think I am on the same island as Jack in preferring Second Coming. In this case I gravitate to the more rock influenced album although they are both great.

Kirk,
All great, all classics, though I'd pick Pipedreams over I Robot, and Backless or August over Unplugged, while 90125 does include 'Lonely Heart' I thought the rest of it was a bit forgettable.... in this level of company.

Reorx
The original Stone Roses album is superb - and that first three tracks represents the best and most consistently brilliant opening to an album I've ever heard, but I don't think its worn as well as Second Coming (some tracks now sounding very dated, and of their time), and I think it's weak points are weaker than the weak points on Second Coming. The kind of GREAT album (we're comparing these records with DSOM, after all) can't really afford any really weak tracks, or tracks you'd skip, and both 'Roses albums include tracks which come close to that, although the good material is absolutely top notch.

Ah yes, the initial 1-2-3 punch of "Stone Roses" is indeed one of the best openings to an album of all time. "...I don't have to sell my soul...He's already in me...." Classic stuff. Actually, that 1-2-3 punch is pretty much why I prefer the first album to the second, whereas you view it in term of weak tracks, I see it as "Second Coming" have no tracks that match the absolute immortality of the first three of "Stone Roses" Once again, a matter of opinion really. Eitehr that or coz I've listened to "Stone Roses" waaaay more than "Second Coming" coz my cruddy friend lost it. I think I should finally buy a new copy and listen to it more closely....

Keeping with the thread, here are some more gems:

Bob Dylan - Blood on the Tracks (IMHO, more so than Blone or Highway. Just me I guess)
Opeth - Blackwater Park
Soundgarden - Superunknown
Metallica - ....and Justice For All
Van Morrison - Astral Weeks
Neil Young - After the Gold Rush
Jeff Buckley - Grace

Well, if you did have Second Coming, you'd know that 'Breaking Into Heaven' beats even 'Adored' as an all time great Album opener, and 'Driving South' is as good as 'She Bangs the Drums', and that 'Love Spreads' and 'Tears' are also stand-outs on the later album.

Even when touring to promote Second Coming, though, the set always began: Adored>Drums>Waterfall before kicking into the newer stuff.
