while perusing your list, I'd have to highly rate (besides U2) the Genesis CDs, especially Lamb , Peter Gabriel, the first Marillion (I saw them live on the 3rd album with Fish, awesome!) and Yes... I did really enjoy the last White Stripes after my husband played it a zillion times. Just wish I had heard it a zillion before I saw them live... Love the first Oasis, not a Tull fan,... Interesting stuff. If my memory serves me... you might need the first IQ CD

Hubby definitely has some of the stuff you mentioned (plus all above). And the VDGG/Peter Hammill stuff, Roxy Music, The Who & Beatles (of course), ELP, Elton John, Camel,... How did the Mastodon CD creep in there

and no Traffic?

I was expecting your list to suck (as I would expect of most lists on this forum), but that one album alone means your list cannot suck. It would even make a Backstreet Boys CD forgiveable.

The classic prog rock is a bonus, though I personally far prefer modern prog as led by Dream Theater. As the 101 Rules Of Prog Rock say, (WARNING FOR THE HUMOURLESS: JOKE APPROACHING) "the more something sounds like Dream Theater's Images And Words album, the more progressive it is."
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

I love your humble, non-elitist musical taste.

I can't believe this guy actually has U2
Here lies a signature where once upon a time upcoming gigs were stored.

Glad to see Air and Daft Punk amongst your list.

You need more female singer/songwriters and vocalists in your collection as other that the odd few there is not enough. How about Kate Bush or Joni Mitchell for starters?

Took the words right out of my mouf. Not a bad collection you've got there, though. You could also use more of the Lips.

No Elvis Costello or Urban Dance Squad.
No Bob Dylan
David Bowie
Rolling Stones
A Rush Of Blood To The Head by Coldplay
Aretha Franklin/Otis Redding/other 60s soul
Jimi Hendrix Experience
Nirvana/Pearl Jam
Bruce Springsteen

I do see lots of prog rock.
I was going to say "no Beatles" but then I saw a Abbey Road listed under the T (of The Beatles).
The Elton John discs are a plus.

Still, you want me to rate your album collection?

Genesis and Fugazi — care to explain?

I'm digging the Sufjan collection.

How can you not like Fugazi???

Some stuff in there isn't really representative of my taste. Stuff like Mastadon I heard was good so I bought it, only to realize it wasn't my thing.

Also there are bands I've just recently gotten into such as Air, Daft Punk, Bright Eyes, Neko Case (great female singer) etc. and I haven't had much of an opportunity to get into em yet. I guess I did ask you to rate my collection, not my taste heh heh.

And to Axver, how can you say modern prog is better than classic??? OMG... have you not listened to King Crimson, Yes or Genesis? Listen to Selling England by the Pound, Close to the Edge or Lark's Tongue in Aspic and tell me thats not better than Dream Theater. It's just so much more organic and sophisticated IMO. And as we know my opinion is the truth.
