    Motley Crue “Too Fast For Love” and “Shout At The Devil”
    Aerosmith- first four albums

    Joe Satriani - for following 'Not Of This Earth' with 'Surfing With The Alien'. Then he raised the bar even higher with 'Flying In A Blue Dream'.

    No mention of Roy Buchanan so far - shame on you all! :D

    The Killers' Hot Fuss and Sam's Town were a pretty strong 1 and 2
    Third Eye Blind's self titled and Blue are pretty cool, too

    Of my three choices, only one was used (Iggy & The Stooges Debut & Fun House was number 2 o my list). Since no one has picked my other two, I am calling them:

    I love the first two Velvet Underground records, but White Light White Heat changed the way I look at music.

    2) VU.jpg

    The next pair is more controversial. I just prefer Strange Days over The Doors. Maybe it is because I like When the Music's Over better than The End. Who knows. They are both great records and I happen to prefer the pacing of #2 over #1

    I will also call Joy Division. I know I am in the minority, but I just prefer Closer over Unknown Pleasures(which has a better title & cover) I have been listening to both LP's for decades now, but I just prefer the songs on Closer by a narrow margin

    If you're ever in Genoa, Italy you can see the funeral statuary on the cover of 'Closer' for yourself :)

    As for the music, too close (sorry) to call. The greatest pity was that there could be no third album.

    Some of the finest nerd core/slacker rock/power pop ever recorded. Unfortunately, everything that followed was complete garbage.

    +1 Little Feat (1971) >> Sailing Shoes (1972). IMO the next 2 albums Dixie Chicken (1973) and Feats Don't Fail Me Now (1974) were also quite good.

    Ry Cooder (1970) >> Into the Purple Valley (1972). EDIT: Here Cooder is playing guitar and mandolin:



    Great thread.
