    A laudable goal if there ever was one.

    Only seen them twice, although once was at a rock club before they hit the big time over here and I didn't know what I was watching, the other was at Wembley Arena. I keep meaning to join the fanclub because the only time they do small club shows in the UK is for fanclub members only and I have no desire to go see them at an arena again.

    ^ See to me that album was the start of their slide into being the Bon Jovi of metal. I far FAR prefer their earlier albums.

    I once got a very quizzical look from a very stoned lass for suggesting that Master Of Puppets sounded like some great big beasties stomping about Godzilla style.

    What?? I was in an illegal state of mind at the time. That's my defence and I'm sticking to it.

    I was gonna come on here to bump this thread for some ones I remembered this weekend, one of which (Alanis Morrisette's Jagged Little Pill) has been mentioned since I posted last.

    But I still don't see a couple of the best albums of all time, both of which I am embarrassed to have left off my list the first time -

    Purple Rain - Prince & the Revolution

    Synchronicity- The Police


    Purple Rain in particular is such a spectacular album that it truly astounds me that no one remembered it so far (including myself), and it really deserves inclusion here more than most albums I can think of. Synchronicity might be better remembered by people who were in their teens and 20's in the 80's...but is still an awesome album, with the possible exception of maybe one song.

    Oh...and just for the record, Prince gets the award for Best Superbowl Halftime Show Ever too :D

    I'd have to say:

    At the Drive-In's final album,
    Relationship of Command

    &

    The Mars Volta's debut,
    De-Loused in Comatorium

    The combined genius of Cedric and Omar (frontmen of the above mentioned bands), as far as I'm concerned, emitted most good-feeling, twitch-inducing raw energy around the turn of the century. It's music I have not grown sick of listening over and over again, for the past 10 years.

    Duran Duran - Big Thing
    Sergei Prokofiev - Symphony No. 1 in D major, Op 25 ("Classical Symphony")

    For Bowie, I think the best candidate is Hunky Dory.

    In a different vein entirely, Bette Midler's The Divine Miss M.

    And in a third direction, Lou Reed's Rock 'n' Roll Animal.

    Marillion - Misplaced Childhood is one I can listen to over & over. Likewise for Queen's A Night At The Opera, Dare by The Human League, Gary Numan's The Pleasure Principle and Equinox by Jean Michel Jarre.

    Thanks! I was thinking about not bumping the thread since it was on page 3...but I see more people have posted, so now I'm glad I did. These two were such worthy candidates I felt like it would be a tragedy to leave them unmentioned.
