Best Outkast: Aquemini, one of the best hip-hop albums ever.
Worst Outkast: Idlewild, of course, and then Speakerboxxx/Love Below. I enjoy plenty from the two, but I seldom want to listen to them back to back, and all Outkast albums prior to it have infinite replay value.

Talking Heads

My favorite talking heads album has always been more songs about buildings and food. I have heard and like remain in light and fear of music but I always choose their earliest work like the '77 album. Its edgier and more straightforward. But I agree with you, naked is pretty bad.

I've only heard thee Who albums. But it makes for good discussion and this thread will get boring if we leave it to people who've heard all the albums by the selected artist.

More songs... Is probably the only talking heads I've truly enjoyed.

Best: Pleased To Meet Me

Bob Stinson gets kicked out of band and Paul reveals himself to be more talented guitarist. Jim Dickinson producing in tribute to Big Star, Alex Chilton gets song named after him and guests on another, Memphis Horns, snappy nightclub snare, mini-Minneapolis hymn, and some rip-roaring ragers for old time's sake. Can't Hardly Wait puts every previous Mats song to shame. Their Exile on Main St minus the overambition.

Worst: Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash

A lot of fun. Legit debut. Little filler considering like 16 tracks. And I'm tempted to vote for Don't Tell A Soul because of its slick production and inconsistency. But it does have I'll Be You, Achin' To Be, Rock & Roll Ghost, Talent Show, We'll Inherit The Earth. And that kind of tops what Sorry Ma has to offer.


David Bowie

Best... Any one of Ziggy, Hunky Dory, Aladdin Sane, Low or Station to Station. If you put a gun to my head I'd pick Aladdin Sane, I think. Prettiest Soul, Spend the Night Together and Jean Genie aside, everything else is stellar.

Worst? Well I'm sure laz can guess

The Beatles!

The notion that any Eno-Bowie collab is worse than Tonight, Never Let Me Down, or ...hours is a joke.

Don't tempt us with the image of putting a gun to your head.

Could be true, I haven't heard any of those.

Not a Hard Day's Night fan? There's a bunch of classics on that record.

Not to mention All My Loving.

I don't think I agree with you.

Beatles for Sale is worth purchase for the tracks you mentioned and Eight Days A Week, though.

I like A Hard Day's Night, but everything before Beatles For Sale is rather unsophisticated and I can't rate any of them higher than that album, I don't care how consistent or how many hits they have.
