Comfort Me With Apples (Jon Lewis), Friday, 23 October 2009 21:51 (4 years ago) Permalink

Does double albums count? Or forget about "Welcome To The Pleasure Dome" then. :)

Tied Up In Geir (Geir Hongro), Friday, 23 October 2009 21:53 (4 years ago) Permalink

I mean, do side 2 on 4 side albums count. :)

Tied Up In Geir (Geir Hongro), Friday, 23 October 2009 21:53 (4 years ago) Permalink

OK, I've thought about it: Fair question...

Side 2.

Not side 4.

Then..

62. Frankie Goes To Hollywood: Welcome To The Pleasure Dome

Tied Up In Geir (Geir Hongro), Friday, 23 October 2009 21:58 (4 years ago) Permalink

Preferring the second side of Fun House is not crazy! There be saxomophone there! Plus what appears normal and rockin' ("1970") descends into young-eatin' insanity ("L.A. Blues").

I mean it's not a bunch of straight up classics all lined up but it is a journey into a black hole made of vomit.

61. Genesis - Foxtrot

brontosaur, Friday, 23 October 2009 22:53 (4 years ago) Permalink

sigh, yeah I already nommed that at #89

anagram, Friday, 23 October 2009 23:00 (4 years ago) Permalink

yeah its at #89. #74 AND #69. It made me laugh, so I thought October should get its very own Foxtrot. You are not invisible. I hope I haven't ruined the thread.

brontosaur, Friday, 23 October 2009 23:09 (4 years ago) Permalink

May have been posted a bit too many times (I was the first sinner), but it's more OTM than anything else on the list, so... ;)

i was just checking on which side "supper's ready" is on foxtrot. it's on side 2. so i can confirm that the album really belongs into this thread.
