Coldplay is great. I do poke fun at them sometimes but they are a great band.

And anyway, liking Coldplay doesn't make one gay; it simply makes one naff. :)

You were actually the first name that popped into my head when I thought of people who would vote for Coldplay. 

I don't mind them but to me each album has three or four amazing songs surrounded by a bunch of nothing.

My nomination.


Kanye West - My Dark Twisted Fantasy

I understand this is probably doomed based on people's opinions of his personality, ego, etc but if you put that aside (which I assume will happen moreso with time) and listen to this as an album I don't think you can deny just how amazing it is.  I've heard it described as the 'Pet Sounds' of hiphop which I can see, as to me it takes the genre and pushes it in a way not seen since Nas' Illmatic.


Now I just need to figure out which Cure album to nominate for the next round.


btw, have 'Nevermind' or 'Nevermind the Bollocks' been nominated yet?

I agree, say what you will about Kanye's ridiculous public spectacles... but the man makes some great music.

As far as The Cure... I would think that Disintegration is their apex as far as a definitive album statement... but Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me has always been the album that I revisit the most.

Yeah, I loooooooooooooove Wish but I understand it's not considered one of their best (because there's STILL no re-release of it!!!) so I was thinking Disintegration or Pornography would probably get more votes.

Wish had some great tracks on it... High is one of the highlights in the long list of fantastic dreamy Cure pop songs... and 'Open', 'Cut' and 'Edge of The Deep Green Sea' are great Cure rockers... even if Deep Green Sea didn't need to lumber along for eight minutes or whatever... That album will always have a special place for me, as I saw them in concert during that tour... at the Palace of Auburn Hills when they were recording what later became the 'Show' concert album/movie... I'm sure I take up a few pixels of screen space when they pan the crowd.

Pornography is another really solid album... but even back in the 80s when I was a depressed teenager... it was a challenge to get through the whole thing in one sitting... it really will take whatever mood you are in and kick the shit out of it.... heh. Disintegration has a few moments of respite with 'Pictures of You' and 'Lovesong' before it buries you with the epic 'Prayers for Rain'... and now I'm just in full Cure fanboy blubbering mode... jaming out to various songs on Youtube...

Hahaha, glad it's not just me.  The Trilogy DVD has somehow began playing since this conversation started :)


Doing the Unstuck is my favourite song of all time which is just one of my highlights of Wish for me

I have been thinking the same thing since a few rounds back.  Disintegration would be the one I'd nominate simply because it is the most accessible.

Kiss Me... was my FIRST cd I ever owned, Wish was when I saw them on tour, and Bloodflowers is actually my favourite Cure album followed immediately by Pornography.  Actually, I think Kiss Me fits better into the "trilogy" than Disintegration, but I'm not Robert Smith so I just guess he knows what he's talking about.

Wish apparently is in the process of getting its deluxe edition, from what I read on a Cure news site a little while back.... bout friggin time.

But for nomination, I'd still pick Disintegration.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

This is my 2996th post. Soon I shall celebrate the transition to manhood.  Sorry for the spam in this (and every other) thread right about now.
