Would you take a D and an A or two Bs for 2 grades?

I'd take the 2 Bs... Funeral/Neon Bible.

HEY! NO CARS GO!

Which would have easily been the winner.

This is a hard one, Pablo Honey is nothing special outside of creep, and Boy/October both quality but not masterwork...whereas The Bends is just level work.

Oh and this Arcade Fire worship really has to stop.

well, wouldn't you prefer to be operated by an absolutely splendid surgeon that got nothing but a+s in med school, but got a d- at medieval history in high school to a surgeon that got a b at everything at med school and a b at everything in high school?

I want my surgeon to know about the Agalloch torture devices.

think about it. in the future, all the b albums will be long forgotten, while the masterpieces will be played. the bends is the only album of the above that people will keep listening to. i promise you.

I became a U2 fan IN SPITE OF their mostly God awful early stuff. It's the stuff that gives Henry Rollins his toxic material.

You make it sound as if I just said October was U2's best record or something. War is bloody fantastic; certainly better than either of the two U2 albums up there. Both albums are great, but I would rather listen to War the majority of the time.

War was great for its time and great for us fans, but its only songs like NYD and SBS (anf 40 for concert goers) that live on, whereas Achtung Baby was something new, and still sounds fresh, with much darker and poetic lyrics...basically AB would have to be my favorite album ever, but to each their own.

funeral and neon bible are good albums, but far from being masterpieces.
Well, but the topic is talking about debut pairs, and the consense says that Pablo Honey's not that great. I didn't say however that is crap, is far from that...

Yes I went there.
I hate to quote myself but I have to explain my comment. I do not hate Springsteen. In fact I really enjoy a handful of his songs including Streets Of Philadelphia, Human Touch, I'm On Fire, Born In The USA, Born To Run, Dancing In The Dark, Secret Garden among a few others.

But...

... this unnecessarily cruel comment against the Killers made me retaliate. Cos I know martha enjoys the Boss.

Seriously though, my only exposure to the majority of Bruce's material was thru the Greatest Hits cd (the red and black one). And I've heard people say it is not a good starting point. Maybe I should listen to something else. But songs like Badlands, Glory Days, Hungry Heart etc. do bore me. Don't know if it's cos of radio overplay or what.
