I'm not a huge Arcade Fire fan but I voted for them simply because they've put out two consistently good-to-great albums. Other combos are more uneven - Sam's Town is IMO a dip in quality from Hot Fuss; same with October and Boy; whereas The Bends is massively superior to Pablo Honey.

The Killers but no Springsteen...? This is the unfunniest joke since Hitler.

It's "Pablo Honey"'s fault the lack of votes.

There are so many contenders that have yet to be mentioned, including these:

The Doors: 1/Strange Days
Jimi Hendrix Experience: Are You Experienced/Axis

even if pablo honey were the piece of crap that many people want to make it out to be (which it is not) i would take a crap album + a masterpiece over any pair of just good albums any day.

funeral and neon bible are good albums, but far from being masterpieces.

Oh, to flip martha's pancakes.

Besides U2, the only albums I own from those are The Bends and Hot Fuss. I'm getting Sam's Town soon though, Ernie forgot to cancel his automatic selection for his music club, so I said I'd take it off his hands, I've been wanting to hear it anyway.

I like October musically, however, I think it would've aged better had Bono's lyrics not been stolen before recording began and the final vocals weren't him just standing at the mic making shit up as he's going along.

October is probably U2's most vocally sparse album (aside from Passengers), and for U2 to succeed, Bono needs to dominate!!!! (or at least equal Edge) Not that an instrumental here and there (4th of July ) wouldn't be nice too!


Ok, now I want to go listen to October.
