Esquire's Folks Are Fools new [re: Adam]  

It's amazing how many weak picks from great artists they have on their list. Road To Ruin? Animals? Harvest Moon? Combat Rock? Aftermath? Not necessarily bad albums but certainly not their artist's finest.

And they list the Traveling Wilburys. Sick.

Anyway, Adams asked for the albums we have heard, here is may list, split into those which I own and and those which I know from listening. The total is 33 and from those albums which I have just heard "Songs In The Key Of Life" is the only one I am sure I'll buy it one day.

The Stone Roses, The Stone Roses
Lust for Life, Iggy Pop
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, David Bowie
Led Zeppelin (I), Led Zeppelin
The Cars, The Cars
Highway To Hell, AC/DC
Catch a Fire, Bob Marley
MTV Unplugged in New York, Nirvana
Rubber Soul, The Beatles
Velvet Underground and Nico, Velvet Underground
This Is Hardcore, Pulp
Appetite for Destruction, Guns N' Roses
Combat Rock, The Clash
Road to Ruin, The Ramones
Marquee Moon, Television
Buena Vista Social Club, Buena Vista Social Club
Live at Folsom Prison, Johnny Cash
Grace, Jeff Buckley
Harvest Moon, Neil Young
Look Sharp!, Joe Jackson
Pet Sounds, Beach Boys

Adding those which I have heard:

Dire Straits, Dire Straits
Aftermath, The Rolling Stones
Destroyer, KISS
The Bends, Radiohead
The Traveling Wilburys, Vol. 1, The Traveling Wilburys
True Stories, Talking Heads
Animals, Pink Floyd
Ten, Pearl Jam
Songs in the Key of Life, Stevie Wonder
Darkness on the Edge of Town, Bruce Springsteen
Who's Next, The Who
Fair Warning, Van Halen

Re: Esquire's Folks Are Fools new [re: EJ]  

I've got 39 of them. There's 3 or 4 that I've heard but never owned. There are definitely some odd titles on the list. Animals is a great album- but I wonder why it's chosen over Dark Side of the Moon. Elvis Costello's Imperial Bedroom is good but not his best. I didn't see a Dylan or Zappa title on the list either.

I couldn't edit my post new [re: kingsteved]  

I just noticed Bob Dylan's Blood on the tracks on the list. Still,IMO, there should be a Zappa title on it. What happened to the edit function with posts? I didn't have the option.

People still care about Explosions in the Sky? new [re: kingsteved]  

Own 36, and have at least a passing familiarity with another 16.

My vote for strangest inclusion is split between the Chesnutts, Cody and Vic.

Lame list.

The Keith Jarrett of Album Lists new [re: Adam]  

Of the countless dozens, if not hundreds, of album lists posted on TW down the years, I believe this out-sucks them all.

My niceness is another quality others do not now know to handle.
