You'll have to get in line - there's quite a few others here that do, too!
Lol, was going to write this...and I'm not really a fan.
Agree with many here. I’ll add:
Motley Crue “Too Fast For Love” and “Shout At The Devil”
Aerosmith- first four albums
Uriah Heep 1 (very heavy)
Uriah heep (Salisbury and Look at yourself) same year
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!
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.
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
Allman Brothers Band - Self titled and Idlewild South
Actually first FIVE were stellar
Poco -Pick Up The Pieces
Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
allman bros ,the marshall tucker band.
Whitford St. Holmes there's a few records you don't usually see on anyone's list, despite the fact that they are great albums.
Kix another one you don't usually see
- digging your taste Ron!
G n R
Alice in Chains
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.
Pearl Jam - Ten
Pearl Jam - VS
Ozzy - Blizzard
Ozzy - Diary
Pat Travers - 'Makin' Magic' indeed!
Kansas - Kansas
Kansas - Masque
+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:
