For the next round, I'll nominate:

Golden Palominos - Pure

[The bold title above is a link to Allmusic.com's take on the album.]

I'll try to write more before the next poll starts, but I've had to rewrite this twice already (not thinking clearly and cleared the message writing box, when it had already taken me three attempts to write a sentence or two as it was :( ).

For starters, Golden Palominos is a Bill Laswell band.  [His name is a link to Allmusic.com's write-up on him, too.]

No-one has apparently uploaded the whole album (intact) to YouTube, so here is a 'starter cut' from it; the title cut.  The album cover has a boob on it, so the image in the YouTube sample is NSFW (hence the spoiler).

I did a quick search for this album title and did not find it, so hopefully we be good:

I nominate A Rush of Blood to the Head by Coldplay

Look, just because liking Coldplay is proof that one is gay, and just because one has to be near death to like them doesn't detract from the fact that this really is a good album. Before Chris Martin married Gweneth and got all political and junk, the band produced a beautiful album that mixes poetic lyrics with positive and passionate guitar and piano melodies. This album is, to me, audible prozac. I cannot be sad when I listen to it.

Oh dear, I have forgotten how to embed....hmmm

Despite the fact that the board is often quite rude in attacking another person's likes or dislikes, there is no reason to 'pre-detract' from something you like.  :(

I honestly have never heard Coldplay, so am interested to have the opportunity to form my own opinion of them (since I wouldn't have gone out of my way to listen without someone pointing out an album of theirs that they liked).  So, thanks for the opportunity to finally hear a band that MK&B have ragged on for years [they've ragged on one of my favorite bands too, since the MST3K days, so I already know my musical taste doesn't mesh with theirs].

Personally, I like Coldplay... but I'm an Echo & The Bunnymen fan, and they're basically just E&tB re-hashed (they've openly admitted to it, as well as played as studio musicians on a few recent E&tB albums) so I can't complain much about them.

I was trying to think of something '80s to nominate for the next round.  Something with lots of synths and whatnot.  Dug through my LP's and found what may be a perfect example of '80s new wave music:

Berlin - Pleasure Victim



<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/azr2ooLlfzQ?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/azr2ooLlfzQ?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>


Just a fantastic album.  If all you know of Berlin is the Top Gun song, you need to check out this album.

A bit harsh, don't ya think?

Coldplay is hit or miss for me.  I really liked that song "Paradise" from their last album.  And the album you mentioned is really good.

I love Coldplay, Chris Martin is one of those rare singers who sound the same live.  No autotune for this guy.

And their music is beautiful too

I'm very surprised A night at the opera isn't getting more votes... don't most people think that's Queen's best album?

Beats me. I'm not a Queen fan.

I'd say it's a toss up with News Of The World.  I will vote for it when I get around to it, need to listen to more of the stuff I haven't heard to see what they are like.

I'm glad you added that last part.  I was afraid you might have had a stroke.

Ah, OK.  I don't like Steve Carell's stuff since he left the Daily Show (wasn't particularly fond of it when he was on it), and there was nothing about the ads for 40-Year Old Virgin that looked remotely amusing to me, so I never saw it, so impossible to get the references.

[I think the smilies are available to help prevent this sort of misunderstanding.]
