The Wall sucks.

I would have laughed if my epinions article on The Wall was one of the criticisms listed.

Damn, I did get Joyful'd. For the record, I do like Jeff Buckley AND Cheese Doodles.

The Wall making it above Meddle sucks, but that's just how it is, I guess.

And Kate Bush, what can I say? She truly embodies the feminine mystique:



Her looking like Sicy here is just a bonus.

Who knows, but being able to see your quote below it made its inclusion worthy.

I'm just pleased it's not any higher. Here's hoping Animals does well.

#38 - The Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers



This is the last Rolling Stones album here, I swear.

Quote:
Besides "Brown Sugar" and "Bitch", this album is absolutely lifeless, full of self-indulgent material and forgettable ballads. "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" catches the Stones trying to play generic hard rock while pretending to be Santana. What a load of garbage.
Quote:
If art could talk, Joe Dallesandro's abs (The Smiths) would probably tell a better story than his crotch (Sticky Fingers), even if the Rolling Stones do a much better job at exploiting sex in a way that wasn't too edgy for the Seventies. But where rock is concerned, there will be chicks: if Mick Jagger wants to reel in the purdy Marianne Faithfuls with his sensitive-guy musical-hubris ("Wild Horses") or find another excuse to get on the dancefloor ("Bitch") with a ugly honky tonk chick like Janis Joplin, he should, that's one of the perks in the genre. It's rock-n-roll! (yes, gross, I know) at its tightest; before the listener ponders the misogynistic message behind "Brown Sugar," dancing in the nearest sweaty cobweb-infested barnyard is simply a funner choice. When they reach down to the catastrophic lows that plague "classic rock," remember that the Stones really are a gospel band under the painfully stupid exteriors they've come to embrace as geezers, which only makes it funnier when they jump into sex-overdrive.
Quote:
Monotonous.Dull.Uninspiring.Unadventurous. What this CD needs is stuff the calibre of All You Need Is Love or Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey.Stuff that sparkles and shimmers. The songs here are just pseudo junky nonsense. More imagination is needed here.If you want halfway decent stones try Hot Rocks which has all the stuff youll ever need.The best of their poppy material such as jumpin jack satisfaction and paint it black.This is as good as they got.Try Imagine or All Things Must Pass instead.
Quote:
I think The Rolling Stones is more for losers as GNR are the best. Brown Sugar is awful so stay away. Buy Use Your Illusion GNR insted.

Looks like 10 from my list have made it so far.

ETA: Now 11. Sticky Fingers already? I'm surprised.

I'm glad the 4 best Stones albums got represented here, although I wish Let It Bleed made it a little bit higher. I honestly cannot get enough of that album.

the only thing that makes seeing all these stones albums bearable is knowing that all the Beatles albums will be higher

I can't wait to see how high Coldplay gets on here... hopefully the Radiohead/Beatles/Dylan love here will negate that.

I did not have a single Coldplay album in my top fifty, despite having three of them.

I am expecting "Rush of Blood to the Head" to come in at #1, followed by "Funeral."
