Metallica - ...And Justice For All

I take it production quality isn't factored into the equation?

I won't post stunning and well-known works by Tool or Lana Del Ray, I'll post few less known examples:

DramaGods - Love (2005)

Ivan Smirnov - The Land Where The Sun Slumbers (2003)
(it's not the full album in this video)

Tabla Beat Science: Tala Matrix (2000)

I usually ignore lists such as this as they are a generational compiled survey.

To have nothing on the list by Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, The Who etc is just plain lunacy.

Here in the U.K. we had a survey in 2000 for the greatest British all time music act. Robbie Williams came top.
That says it all really.

It never fails to amaze me when these "greatest" lists are made, that one of the most influential bands in history is not included. One that many musicians say were their inspiration and are still fans of to this day.

RUSH.

When I saw the thread title the first thing I thought was ...And Justice For All

Dark Side of the Moon would be another for me.

These things are always subjective but Space Oddity, Hunky Dory, Aladdin Sane and Diamond Dogs would always be on my list, as well as the Nassau gig in '76 included in the deluxe release of Station to Station if you ignore the non edited version of Panic in Detroit. In case anyone doesn't know, these are all David Bowie albums. I've chosen because to me none have a track I would skip due to poorer writing or production - I would include Ziggy Stardust, but the production is just way too quiet. Scary Monsters would be up there but I prefer to pick and choose on that one rather than listen all the way through. Blackstar also up there, but at the moment it's still a little hard to listen all the way through - he had me on track one.

The Velvet Underground with Nico would be up there, as would Abbey Road, maybe the white album, maybe Let it Be, maybe Sergeant Pepper.

Tenemant Symphony, the stars we are, mother fist and her five daughters, Enchanted (Marc Almond)

Kicking against the pricks, Henrys dream, Live Seeds and Murder ballads (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds)

God, where do you stop?

Automatic for the people - REM
Abbey Road - The Beatles
The Train of Thought - Reflection Eternal


There are probably dozens more but I'm having difficulty thinking right now.

Agreed. Didn't see a single one I recognized.

No Tommy or Dark Side of the Moon?

D'oh, I missed out man who sold the world...... I think it's because I'm scarred by the mime piece in width of a circle in his Ziggy farewell gig - never trust a mime artist, they never chat.

Radiohead has some great albums. OK Computer, Kid A, Amnesiac, In Rainbows, King of Limbs. The new one, A Moon Shaped Pool is just awesome! Watched a live feed of their Bonnaroo concert few weeks back, they played most of the new one and a great overview of their catalogue. Their recordings are works of art, but it's even better (IMO) live
