haha, I dig Parade but my first thought was that I can't comprehend how that could be a person's favorite Prince album. I may not agree with some of the other artist picks (particularly Peej, Madonna, and Roxy) but I can at least see the case.

I voted Janet cuz hell, that's an off-the-wall pick I do agree with.

Best new thread

What I love about all these albums is that they’re all of them the best albums and none of them perfect (except A Kind Of Blue)

I can’t decide to vote for my fave (Sprinkles) or the album that makes me think of Brad (Fall Out Boy)

Either way I’m putting the handful of albums on this list I don’t know at the top of my queue

head says hissing of summer lawns, heart says adore, body says laptop cafe, soul says love deluxe, weather says veedon fleece, weather soon will probably say transilvanian hunger

lowercase (eric), Friday, 10 May 2019 15:09 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Pretty sure I was listening heavily to Otis Blue and Veedon Fleece at the same time, during the worst summer of my life. They have some kind of connection in my head.

jmm, Friday, 10 May 2019 15:45 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Had to go with Hats as you didn't pick any of the five albums I'd put ahead of it.

So many great choices here. I especially love how you've picked many of my favourite albums by such incredible artists (I'm Still In Love With You, Hissing Of Summer Lawns, Love Deluxe, The Velvet Underground S/T). Dirty Mind is the only Prince album I'd put ahead of Parade. It's really close though.

I think I might be ready to switch over to team Jordan: The Comeback now. It's always been Steve McQueen, but recently Jordan has been feeling like the one.

brimstead, Friday, 10 May 2019 19:09 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Lovely list! Too early to decide what to vote for, but I love that Rapture and Padlock are among the options.

Especially the Gwen Guthrie: “Peanut Butter”, “Hopscotch”, “Seventh Heaven”, “Padlock” itself - whether the original Sly & Robbie productions or the Larry Levin remixes**, that’s some of my favorite music ever. Lush as fuck.

Also, can’t wait to check out that DeBarge album again.

**I was only familiar with the versions on GG’s 1983 Portrait album until relatively recently, but “Seventh Heaven” especially is superior in the LL remix.

This is a really great summation of why Parade is so good (I go back and forth between it and Dirty Mind as my favourite Prince LP).

Voting for Tusk, with Gaucho and Hissing of Summer Lawns in 2nd and 3rd place.

Gavin, Leeds, Friday, 10 May 2019 19:42 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I think I'm actually gonna vote for Snivilisation here. I remember hearing this album in my car for the first time and just being floored by "I Wish I Had Duck Feet". The last two tracks are stunners, I still think "Attached" is in a genre all its own. There are a lot of 90s artifacts still lurking but I think it's held up very well. Combined with dubnobasswithmyheadman it must've felt like electronic music had unlimited potential in '94.

I could have sworn I posted my love for the alternate/demo versions of songs from No Other a little while ago (must not have actually clicked submit)... the arrangements are stripped down a bit and I generally prefer that!

Anyway I think ultimately I'd go for Laughing Stock overall.

There's a few things on this list that I think are utter garbage, and in the cases of the artists that I do like a lot/rate highly - with a couple of exceptions - the wrong album is featured, IMO.

Le Baton Rose (Turrican), Friday, 10 May 2019 20:44 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Interesting list, could've gone for 5 or 6, went with Prefab Sprout, never get tired of that album, such wonderful drama and romanticism to it all.

Any reason there's so few from the 21st century? Granted, those of us past a certain age will lean towards 20th century choices...

Tim F, Sunday, 12 May 2019 10:56 (one week ago) Permalink

This is an excellent set of options. There are a few that I'd eliminate, though...

scritti politti: cupid & psyche 85 (1985)
- Eighties sophisto-pop Scritti hasn't worn well for me at all - a major drop-off in enjoyment since the Actual Eighties.

prince: parade (1986)
- Played this a couple of weeks ago and it wasn't quite the classic that I remembered.

the other people place: lifestyles of the laptop café (2001)
- Also played this a couple of weeks ago. While pleasant and ahead of its time, it's not right up there as a classic.

can: tago mago (1971)
- Never been able to get with Can. They're a band I should like in theory, but it just won't click.

madonna: erotica (1992)
- I've posted elsewhere about this before, but the ILM love for Erotica has always baffled me. Too many samey underwhelming fillers!

there's quite a few of these i haven't heard but i think it's probably Hats out of the ones i have

otm, the singer drives me crazy, the sluggish music does not help. went for "laughing stock" ahead of "sunday at the village vanguard" and "tago mago". it took me some time to get into can but i must admit that "tago mago" is totally outstanding in their oeuvre. jaki liebezeit at the top of his skills. one of the wildest, most mesmerizing recordings of all-time.

Tago Mago is tough, the “first disc” is my favourite Can release and the “second disc” threatens to sour their entire legacy... the moment when Damo just breaks kayfabe and starts literally going “BOOGABOOGABOOGABOOGABOOGA” might be one of my least favourite moments in recorded music

Hats is a steady dropping off in quality throughout the record but the highs are so high

I’ve typed too much about my complicated relationship to Talk Talk elsewhere

oh whoops, also diary and clarity would be above that too. the order of the list gets REAL messy after 50, it's kind of a monster. highest 2010s album is the 1975's i like it when you sleep followed by laurel halo's quarantine

These are all just about as close as you can get to musical perfection:

scritti politti: cupid & psyche 85 (1985)
roxy music: avalon (1982)
the velvet underground: the velvet underground (1969)
david bowie: low (1977)
joni mitchell: the hissing of summer lawns (1975)
anita baker: rapture (1986)
talk talk: laughing stock (1991)
the comsat angels: sleep no more (1981)

WOW. Which one am I going to go for? Oh fuck it, considering how little love it got in the 1982 poll, I have little choice but to vote for Avalon, even if so it can get at least ONE vote. (Where are all the Roxy fans?)
