Hmmmmmmm thought the Guns N Roses would be higher.......for a whole generation of kids that was the first and in some ways "last" Rock album they heard .......Back in Black which served the same purpose for those kids older brothers should be coming up.......top 10?
It's my favorite Springsteen record - especially the first side. Those screams/yelps at the end of State Trooper get me every time....it also kind of predates the whole alternative movement because it couldn't have been more of a F-You to Rock star kind of stuff.
Wow. I think I've only heard the Metallicas, Psychocandy, and The Smiths. I imagine I'll have heard more from the top 12 or so, but that is pretty bad.
Surprised you don't know Guns n Roses, I think that's one of (if not the) most popular albums I put on my ballot.
I know the singles, but I don't generally hear people talk about their albums much. Same deal with Michael Jackson. I heard Thriller and Sweet Child O'Mine, but I don't think their albums are praised to an enormously high level - and I think that's usually what makes people wanna check the albums out I would guess.
Over Nebraska and The River? Naaaaaaaaaah. Gimme the much more interesting Tunnel of Love over it too.
Love all those (well, maybe *love* is strong for Tunnel, but I do like it a lot), you can't go wrong with any of them, Born in the USA just hits me differently. Nebraska is the best for pure lyricism though, I'll give you that.
I don't even know where the idea to make Closer came from - I mean Unknown Pleasures was dark but this album when it gets into Decades and The Eternal is a black hole of despair........it's great Art though and a singular record.
