    Cheers for Danny Gatton, but I think Texas Flood was much better than Couldn’t Stand the Weather (and I love Stevie, I was born in Austin Texas too)

    The Cult rock also

    I love that album and wore it out. I ordered the CD a couple of years ago and Neal Shulman signed it. Nice gesture.

    I'm not sure what I was expecting to find in this thread bit I'm sure Krokus wasn't it! That takes me back .


    Anyyway I think I just stopped listening to music as albums many years ago. Streaming and MP3s and even CDs ( because of the bonus tracks) pretty much stopped the format for me.
    However, I've Liked a bunch on here although it's all music I'd listened to by the age of 20.

    I'll just throw a couple in that I don't think I've seen mentioned:

    David Sylvian - Gone to Earth
    Japan - Tin Drum

    This thread is heading towards sticky territory IMHO!

    I’ll stick to my non rock theme. Wore this one out along with Aztec 2 Step in early 70’s. Before these guys went top 40 bubblegum they laid down some sweet guitar chops. Goofy lyrics sweet tones. This link gets you to the whole LP free on YouTube

    Pink Floyd - Meddle. It isn't one of their most acclaimed albums but I enjoy all of it. I'm OK with the acoustic blues track in the middle with the howling dogs.

    Deep Purple - Fireball. Again, not their most acclaimed, but its my favorite of the Mark II and I find it solid all the way through.

    I love King Crimson throughout their career but I think their two perfect albums are Larks’ Tongues In Aspic and Discipline.

    (Red so nearly nearly makes it... but I have to deduct something for the opening minutes of Providence. In The Wake Of Poseidon would be there except that The Devil’s Triangle, despite a lot of good music / atmosphere, is so clearly filler. And Islands misses out because Prelude: Song Of The Gulls could do with an edit, and Sinfield’s lyrics for Ladies Of The Road really cannot be condoned.)

    Fireball is the best Deep Purple studio album imho, but Made In Japan is the second best live album ever (including Paicey’s drum solo) with the best being, of course, 801: Live.

    However all Kate Bush albums are perfect. Just sayin’.
