used to own but haven?t gotten around to replacing: 1, 8, 9, 11
own: 2, 4, 5, 6, 12, 15, 17
would like to own: 3, 7, 13, 16, 18, 19
and i?m open to listen to any one who thinks i should own any of the others.
in regard to something Nechesh said: i could make a list of my 20 favorite albums and a list of what i think are the 20 most important rock albums, but they would only have a little overlap.
stevie is awesome. yeah a few of his songs like ?Say I love You? suck, but to enjoy a lot of his songs i just have to be in the right musical mind set.
V.L. i am aghast that you don?t love led zep! i mean it?s a free country and all (or has Bush changed that). but really. i?d love to get you in the right frame of mind and then have you watch ?The Song Remains the Same?, but that?s up to you of course.
8th, if you have?t listened to ?Greetings from Asbury Park? in a while, please do. by far my favorite album of his. listen to it and tell me that "Lost in the Flood" isn?t one of the greatest rock songs of all time.
if we collectively made a top 20 list i wonder what we would end up with.

When I was young Meatloaf (and I'm no fan) seemed to be in the charts forever, so given his criteria I thought they may of been there somewhere. I had to laugh at one of the points of views. "there all hippies." What a great generation we lived in.

It's not that I'm unfamiliar with "Bruce", in fact, based on the other music I like, I've been gifted with various Springsteen albums over the years by friends and family. I listened to them all, some several times. Then I sold them to used record stores and bought stuff I liked.
What can I say? he just ain't my cup-o-tea.
I like Springsteen, but I don´t listen to his music very often. It´s not that I come home to play a Springsteen CD.
It´s more like, when on the iPod, if it´s Springsteen playing it´s ok. I won´t skip the song. . . and even enjoy it.
I have the impression that if you listen to one song, it´s like you´ve heard any of Springsteen´s.
It´s just so. . . Bruce

i won't defend any of his other albums, but i'd urge you to listen to his first, the above mentioned GFAP, again. it was recorded on the cheep in under a week, back when he was a nobody punk. his later stuff sometimes seems to polished and contrived to me. at any rate, give 'Lost in the Flood' a new listen and tell me that's not one of the most intense Rock songs of all time

oh, darlin', trust me when i say. My frame of mind remains the same lol!
Growing up in my household, my brother Dave played Led Zep hour upon hour upon hour and with each screeching attept at a high note, i began to loathe Plant more & more. Just the opening howls of Immigrant Song make me want to crawl out of my skin. I wish they would have gone to a land of the Ice and Snow (maybe the Arctic) and stayed there permantly. (laughs!) But like i said, apparently i'm one of the few humans that can't stand them. Thank Goddess for Bowie and The Beatles~ they saved me from pitching myself out the window and running away.
I would rather listen to The Clash's Sandinista! album to album for 48 hours straight then endure one single song from Led Zep. I love the Clash but you're a REAL fan if you own Sandinista!
I loves ya, Stephen but this is where we gotta disagree

Sandinista's a dub-punk masterpiece.
And BTW, 48 hours only gets you about 3/4 of the way through it?

God, I can't listen to an entire Zepplin song without wanting to stand on my head and lower myself into a tub of water. Page is a great guitar player, but Plant's voice is like ball bearings without grease. Springsteen, U2, and even Metallica's "black album" I can understand. But where is Bowie and the Stones? Hell, I'd even venture at least on KISS album before all those Zepplin records,hell at least KISS Live or Destroyer and in some cases that's stretch.
