Yep. And they're ALL sub-genres of rock.

Ok. There are no genres. It's all music.

Here's another perfect album of its genre:

The Billy Joel Piano Man album.

Is there an official listing of this? If not we can argue forever. I'm not going to further argue for that reason.


It depends what you mean by an official listing. There are certainly written sources (such as The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Music and Heavy Metal: The Music and Its Culture, and there are testimonial sources, such as the aforementioned "Godfather of Speed Metal," Lemmy Kilmister, but it's not like you're going to accept that sources that disagree with your position.

I guess the Rock and Roll Hall of fame got it all wrong when they inducted Metallica and other metal groups. Better let them know.

Question for Ray Tupper, who has voted for "The Who Sell Out."

Do you think that "Rael" on that album is/was a prelude to "Tommy?" I think it might be considered as indicating what happened to Captain Walker prior to the events of "Tommy." Also, parts of the instrumental sections of "Rael" bear a striking resemblance to parts of the "Underture" (I think) from "Tommy."

Duke Ellington didn't believe in categorizing music. He said, "There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind."

I'll be quite honest and say that's never crossed my mind. I'll have to listen to them in succession.
I must admit also, that when I was younger, I misheard the lyrics to Rael 1, 2, and sang them completely differently for years.
(Is that the beauty of vinyl, or the innocence of a young boy?)
The wretches and their minions, will always tip their bowlers...etc. at the time it sounded just like the original;
The redchins in their millions, will overspill their borders...etc.
I've never quite figured out the song. Who are the redchins? Or where or what Rael is? Though it does mention a captain, he is being instructed by the orator, and he never went back. Then again, he did think he was crazy.
Having read Townsends' autobiography (which is a belting read BTW!) I can't recall any mentions of this in regards to the Tommy film/album.
I must say though, it's nice to see somebody appreciate a body of work as immense as these two pieces, though they are just small fragments of a larger segment of classic musical history.

Going back to the original post, I had to check twice. No one mentioned "Dark Side of the Moon"- Pink Floyd.
With over 50 million records sold , it is one of the best selling albums of all time and certainly had a big musical influence on me.

Hard to argue with an album that was on the charts every week for more than ten years, but it's not in my top-3 Floyd albums. Which is, more than anything else, a tribute to PF, since it truly is a great album.

If you're talking live albums, it would hard to top the excitement, atmosphere, and collective musicianship on Jefferson Airplane's "Bless Its Pointed Little Head."

ĆNIMA is the best prog/metal/rock album ever

If the best prog metal album isn't The Warning or Operation: Mindcrime by Queensryche, it's got to be one of the first six Fates Warning albums.

By landmark' criteria, The Joshua Tree is definitely a contender. I do find it amusing that most of my musician friends don't see the appeal.

Yea U2 is one of those groups people like to be snobbish about. Talking about that is when they sold out and blah blah blah. Joshua Tree holds up. No matter what anyone says

I think The Joshua Tree is fairly considered their best album top to bottom, but I also think their best songs were on War.
