Top 11 Albums of All Time (muhaha)

Ok, now here's a list thread for you...but with a few simple rules!

1. ONLY 11 albums, no live albums.

2. MUST be ordered sequentially by greatness

3. ONLY 1 album by any one band/artist allowed on list. I don't care if you think ALL of Duran Duran's albums are better than INXS' Kick, only pick one to put above it!

Edit to add Rule 4: No Best Of/Greatest HIts/Compilations of any kind.

That's it. So, here's my list.

____________________________________

1. The Joshua Tree - U2
2. Rubber Soul - The Beatles
3. Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen
4. Low - David Bowie
5. Remain in Light - The Talking Heads
6. Automatic for the People - R.E.M.
7. Highway 61 Revisited - Bob Dylan
8. Quadrophenia - The Who
9. Animals - Pink Floyd
10. The Bends - Radiohead
11. IV - Led Zeppelin

My list is continually changing.

1. Animals - Pink Floyd
2. A Night At The Opera - Queen
3. Kid A - Radiohead
4. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band -The Beatles
5. Heaven Up Here - Echo And The Bunnymen
6. Closer - Joy Division
7. Funeral - The Arcade Fire
8. The Moon And Antarctica - Modest Mouse
9. Pink Moon - Nick Drake
10. Blood Sugar Sex Magik - Red Hot Chili Peppers


Could be something completely different next week. Although the top three are kind of fixed (not in that order, just those three albums in the top three.)

Oh and I see I forgot to add U2. So yeah...throw Zooropa in there somewhere.
