IanWagner Same as the 60's poll, from previous poll results.
Born To Run, just over Funhouse, Raw Power, Love You and Tusk.

Keep these polls on the top page, please friends, they will run for 9 days.

Beckner Still can't believe Zeppelin failed to win a single year.

Their albums aren't consistent to the non-hardcore fan, dude!
March 22nd, 2008 12:01 PM
Beckner Well, I think there's something wrong with people who aren't a hardcore fan. Same with the Beatles. I can't trust 'em for nothing.

I feel the same way about The Velvet Underground.
March 22nd, 2008 12:12 PM
northcountryboy I feel the same way about Dexys, Gun Club, M.I.A. and about a million others.

Life's tough, Dave. Suck it up.

Aww man, Gun Club. Whew.
We WILL be hipping some people to them in the near future.
RIP Jeffrey.

Guess you've heard many times over about Jeffrey's Viper Room altercation with Noel Gallagher?

I'd love to know what was on that list.

I don't really know much. Apparently Jeffrey had a slanging match with Noel over his being out of line with one of Jeffrey's friends. JLP then wrote about it to the NME and added a list of must-hear albums to his blurb.

DavidLeeRoth #1 Record...Innervisions is the best album of the 70's though.

In your opinion? :)
That isn't even Stevie's best album, to my ears. Or on the list of Top 20 best soul albums of the decade.
Sly is the one sorely missed here, since Stevie is already represented.

Man, that is a list I need to see too.
March 22nd, 2008 12:46 PM
hrtshpdbox Darkness on the Edge of Town, Richard Hell and the Voidoids, Never Mind The Bollocks, My Aim Is True. Gotta wrestle with the choices available though, will need to deliberate.

Also agree with whoever said Astral Weeks for the 60s.
March 22nd, 2008 12:48 PM
Tom Sawyer It's not my favorite record of the decade, but of these I went with #1 Record.
March 22nd, 2008 12:48 PM
IanWagner I was lucky, my actual fave album of both decades made the polls.
March 22nd, 2008 12:49 PM
IanWagner Would be pretty cool if the Star won this.

what's worse is the nme only printed the part of the letter about his argument with gallagher and cut out the list of albums. bastards. :angry:

wind chime This was pretty easy for me...I think having two Who albums to choose from tells me that they owned the 70's musically, along with Pink Floyd, Genesis, Yes, Led Zeppelin and Queen, but The Who peaked early in that decade. Who's Next is a work of pure genius and a pioneering effort too boot with hard rock and futuristic synthesizers all wrapped together in harmony.
March 22nd, 2008 03:40 PM
bungfungus Since Harry Wayne Casey's triple-platinum magnum opus from '75 didn't make the list, I'll go with Quadrophenia.
March 22nd, 2008 04:29 PM
MoogDroog Born To Run. Wow, you people really like Big Star don't you? :)
March 23rd, 2008 03:35 AM
halleluwah Out of the choices, Fun House; probably my #2 album of the 70s if I were to make such a list. I'm still sore about seeing a 'best of the 70s' list with no Tonight's the Night present, but the people have spoken!

Alright, Born To Run.

For some reason, this was tougher than the sixties one for me.
March 23rd, 2008 12:19 PM
Beckner It's so tough I haven't even voted yet. Still mulling over Love You or Big Star.
March 23rd, 2008 12:46 PM
Jon Hunt I voted "Rumors." I feel like the Mac vote will be split, if in fact anybody VOTES for the Mac. Its a close call between that and #1 Record, but I think ultimately I have to tip it to Rumors.
March 23rd, 2008 02:11 PM
dauntless9 There, I broke the tie. My vote: The Who - 'Who's Next'.

I'm waiting for the ham...
March 23rd, 2008 03:01 PM
Andy B Big Star #1. For whatever reasons that one is really hitting home hard recently. Just superior sonwriting craft i guess.
