    I agree with you about the Byrds, first record was better but may not be their best and yes, for me Buffalo Springfield Again is one of the finest second efforts ever and dwarfs their first. Last Time Around is also very good but its tinged with such finality.

    Great 2nd record and if I was going to take a serious crack at becoming a bass player I'd try playing along with this one for a couple hours a day. IMO some of the most fitting bass playing/parts for the songs ever. An' 'at's all I got to say 'bout that.

    Have to respectfully disagree on "Give 'Em Enough Rope" being better than "The Clash." Especially if we're comparing it to the initial UK version of "the Clash." Regardless, the first album is much more "real" to me than "Give 'Em Enough Rope" and all its polish. I do love "...Rope" too, but it's just never connected with me like the first Clash album(s).

    Since someone already mentioned "The Bends" and "Being There" I'll throw in ---

    X's "Wild Gift"

    Wow, that brings back memories. What a great record.

    Back in the days when I was a teenager
    Before I had status and before I had a pager...

    Well, Roy Buchanan Second Album of course!

    If we don't count Danny & The Fat Boys' "American Music," then I also liked Gatton's Unfinished Business more than Redneck Jazz

    you could find the abstract, listening to hip hop
    my pops used to say it reminded him of bebop...

    I don't know, man...it doesn't have "Bonita Applebaum" on it. That's a tough tune to top and may give the first album the edge. Not to mention "Can I Kick It?"

    But, "Low End Theory" does have "Scenario" on it (A great video for that one with a young Busta Rhymes. Check it on YouTube). It's truly a tight race between those two records.

    OK, I'll give it a shot, but it's been a while:

    I said, well Daddy don't you know that things go in cycles,
    The way that Bobby brown is just ampin' like Michael

    (I never really knew what that last line was, really)

    I really love "Oh My God" too, from midnight Marauders. Especially that goofy noise right at the beginning (the fake punch noise)- I can remember making that noise with all my friends.

    I really liked hip hop back then- PE, Black Sheep, Cypress Hill. And of course, Paul's Boutique, my fave rap album of all time.

    There's been a lot mentioned that I agree with & some that I'm not sure about or not familiar with.
    But three that come to my mind right away...
    And all had set the bar pretty high the first time around:

    Axis Bold As Love
    Led Zeppelin II
    And my all time favorite album:
    The Wild The Innocent And The E Street Shuffle

    nor does it have "i left my wallet in el segundo"

    but it does have, butter, verses from the abstract, vibes and stuff, the afforementioned "scenario," jazz(we've got) dang...it's tough to call, but "low end" is so cohesive...

    "Axis," to me, doesn't come close to being as good as "Are You Experienced"--------------so I guess I am in the minority........nothing new there....lol........JIMO
