Seriously, can someone fix the "change vote" thing?  I didn't realize till the last second that I could change my vote and that I could actually just LISTEN TO ALL OF THESE ALBUMS ON YOUTUBE.  Still gonna listen to them all, though, but I think I made the right choice, if I could only pick one.

I dunno. We might have start a flame war to even get a mod to come into this thread.

So on that note, Kirk isn't fit to lick the sweat off Picard's balls!

Well, I'm one of those five.  Though I've heard quite a bit since my brother has always been into it, personally I'm not much for 'classic' blues [as opposed to blues-rock, like Hendrix, Zeppelin's first couple, etc.].  But I dug around and found that album and it is exceptional.  (An aside: It would've been recorded about 3-4 years before I saw Mr. Waters at a party I went to in high school.  He was a neighbor of the people throwing the party ['party'=beer, pot, whatever] and he just 'dropped by' and was playing by himself with a small amp, sitting on a folding chair on the grass in the people's back yard.  So we were able to go up and talk to him a bit.  If I remember correctly I asked him if he wanted to smoke a joint with us and he courteously declined.)

As things go along if there are some types of music not getting in maybe there should be some rounds dedicated to them.  Like an R&B, or Classical round.  The Blues Brothers movie got me into R&B a bit, then Pat Benatar did a pretty cool R&B album (True Love) and I went looking for the originals.

I don't know the Mr. Waters you're talking about, but that sounds like a cool story.

Shit!  Brain still shorting way the fuck out... thinking 'B.B. King' but my memory brought up that Muddy Waters experience.  >:(  I only saw B.B. King (around that same time) at a regular outdoor 'fest'-type concert (i.e. with hundreds of people there, and a number of other bands playing through the day) with my bro and a bunch of each of our friends.

  [Oh, and the "Mr. Waters" in the prior post was a mild attempt at humor... I know his name is actually McKinley Morganfield, not "Muddy Waters".]

For the next round, I nominate something that may fit the 'does anyone really NOT know this?' category (like 'Dark Side of the Moon' did):

The Who - Who's Next


But, just in case there are people who haven't heard it, here ya' go:
<a href="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/LVM5OVxLfq0" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/LVM5OVxLfq0</a>

If you just want one tune - though it is hard to pick just one - try this:
<a href="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/SHhrZgojY1Q" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/SHhrZgojY1Q</a>


I feel this is one of the few albums where if even a single note was changed, it would be a 'lesser' listening experience.  It is also one of few albums that, when I'm down, seems to always lift my spirits if I listen to it intently (intently = 'with little to no focus on anything else').

Oh, and the 'why it belongs on the list': while it perfectly summarized the time in which it was made, the grace and beauty and emotional power of the music is timeless.   [<=this last sentence/paragraph added after Tripe's 'Like', just so it's known he didn't necessarily agree with this (though he might)]

I personally would like to suggest Joshua Tree by U2.  While I'm not a huge U2 fan and my favourite album by theirs was actually War... Joshua Tree is still an album I think pretty much everyone needs to have listened to at least once in their lives, or they will die.

And another recommendation is Depeche Mode's Violator album.  Even the "singles" on this one have severely different mixes on the album version... so even if you think you know the songs from the radio, you haven't heard them like on the album.  Extended version of "Personal Jesus" ... the minute and a half coda to "Enjoy the Silence" ... Just a morphinominal album.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

So two U2 albums in the next round? Sweet! I nominated Achtung Baby a few pages ago. That album took everything about U2 and spun it around.

I 'heart' this part of the post.  :)  [Haven't heard the other yet, so don't know whether I 'heart'(agree) with it or not.]

I agree Joshua Tree is an incredible album start to finish, and if someone else hadn't beaten me to it, I would have nominated it at some point.
