    I used to feel the same way about this. And while it’s still a great album, they should have stopped after this one. Everything they’ve done since has been pretty much garbage and Lars and Tim are like cartoon characters of punk at this point.

    Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home may well be the album I've listened to the most since I bought my first copy of this album 35 years ago.

    Do I listen to these two all that often now? No... but back in the day when I had to buy the music to listen to it these got a ton of plays.

    Now I listen to such a wide variety of stuff nothing gets played over and over like these did back in the day.

    Not even close! So many times in the past 30 years that I can listen to the whole thing in my head WITHOUT even needing the album!

    Rush's A Farewell to Kings. I grew up with it thanks to my Rush megafan dad, and it definitely has held its place as #1 over the years. To me, it's the perfect Rush album; perfectly capturing the energy and unrestrained creativity of what had come before, while perfectly fine tuning it with the precision and coherence of direction that was just over the horizon for them.

    It also has what I consider Geddy's best vocal performances on Xanadu and Cygnus X-1, as well as seeing him take a strong melodic lead on bass. So many memorable lines from that album are his bass adding movement to the texture Alex provided - which was in the perfect balance between filling out the overall sound to serve the song and killer soloing and riffing. Of course, Peart is in great form. Every time I listen to Xanadu, I get chills when he slides to the backside of the beat and really stretches out the feel after the final chorus.

    I know it's kind of a weird pick that gets forgotten between 2112 and Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures (after Hemispheres, another forgotten masterwork in my mind) on either side of it, but I think it's really their peak and captures the magic of both sides of that equation.

    I plumb wore out my first copy of Surrealistic Pillow, had to buy another one. Now I have it on CD, but it just ain't the same.

    Amazingly, Zen Arcade came out 2 days before Double Nickels on the Dime. Quite a 1-2 punch from SST.

    Both of these LPs were hugely influential to me.
