Bands in bold are those I've heard everything by, which you could crudely class as narrowing to my favourite bands, but the truth is I'm just as passionate about many of the albums for artists where I've lost interest in their future work/direction or have put some of their work off for later.

The Smiths: Meat Is Murder > The Queen Is Dead > The Smiths


So you don't rate Strangeways Here We Come too highly? Were you a fan at the time and pissed off because they had already broken up when this came out?

Do you not count Hatful of Hollow as a full album? It has some studio items on it - it also crosses over with the Louder than Bombs compilation.

I love "Last Night I Dreamt Somebody Loved Me" and "Girlfriend in A Coma" from Strangeways album. As for The Queen is Dead the run from Cemetry Gates to the end of the album (minus Vicar in Tutu) is magic - though I personally prefer "Headmaster Ritual", "How Soon is Now" and "Barbarism Begins At Home" to the best songs from The Queen is Dead so it is a push for me - with Meat is Murder having better highs but The Queen is Dead having more ace songs.

King Crimson
1. The Court of the Crimson King
2. Red
3. Discipline


Come on man. How can you not include Larks tongues in aspic among at least the top three King Crimson albums?
[/quote]

I did give it a higher rating on RYM than Discipline - maybe I was thinking about the final comment from my review too much:)

Quote
Experimental, an interesting listen. Jamie Muir really stands out
with his percussion work particularly the Asian-sounding
instruments for the intro track. Challenging album from an era
when the general public was much more accepting of concept
work and experimentation. Wetton's vocal are strong and
heartfelt.  Fripp's guitars and mellotron work is equally potent.

As for the tracks "Larks' Tongue in Aspic, Part 2" is my favorite
track, and classic King Crimson. The softer numbers are nice as
well "Book of Saturday" and "Exiles".  I know I might be missing
the point with "Talking Drum", a nice idea all the same, but I
think the volume should have been turned up from the beginning
and the drums mixed a bit louder especially the bongos.

I see you like Piece of Mind the best for Iron Maiden - the choruses on that album are a bit of a disappointment for me and I vastly prefer Burr to Nicko on drums - so the first three albums are up there along with the mythic Powerslave.

My RYM review:
Quote
Hard to place my finger on it, but I don't like this album as much as their previous or following albums. Was it the less intimidating cover, the lack of balance between the two sides, or the over reliance on backing choruses? Nonetheless "The Trooper" is the only song on here that's an all-time classic on here for me.

Few more:

Roxy Music
1. For Your Pleasure (1973)
2. Avalon (1982)
3. Stranded (1973)
4. Roxy Music (1972)
5. Country Life (1974)
6. Siren (1975)
7. Flesh + Blood (1980)
8. Manifesto (1979)


Roxy Music is my favorite 70's band. For Your Pleasure is a great album. I alternate between Stranded and their debut as my top choice album. Avalon is a great work as well - very different in character from the Eno or even Jobson era albums. If the "Pyjamarama/Pride and Pain" single were included in For Your Pleasure though perhaps it would push it to the top. I love that single - Paul Thompson's drums especially. I don't think any band likewise had as consistent an oboist as McKay. Sax yes, but not also oboe. Manzanera with Roxy, with Eno, with 801, with Ferry, and on his solo project is just awesome too - a great textural guitarist. Yes, Ferry often talked about having a guitarist like PF's David Gilmour but I think that does Manzanera a major disservice. Tracks like "Cindy Tells Me" and "Amazona" - just brilliant.

Have you read any RM books?

I have The Thrill of It All: Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music by David Buckley and I've read Re-Make/Re-Model: Becoming Roxy Music by Michael Bracewell.

Buckley's book has a lot of direct sources but he is quite critical of Ferry's solo work - even saying it is worse than any RM album. Bracewell's book is not for the casual fan and is more academic in nature but I definitely learned quite a bit about their start and their inspirations. He does not really take positions on the music and its more of a pre-history up to the release of the first album.

I have not read any of the RM books.
