Charlie Region:

2. Moving Pictures   81' - Rush

Charlie Region was an upset pick.  I realize I may get booed but the drumming in Moving Pictures is unparalleled and I think Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here are better.  I voted for them in the 70's brackets.

1. Joshua Tree   87' - U2

2. 1984   84' - Van Halen

Aces work here Cleveland.  Thanks again.  My final four are:

Alpha Region:  Pyromania - Def Leppard - just great rock.  And I can only handle Axl's voice for so long.

Delta Region:  The Joshua Tree - U2 - the easiest pick for me this round.  Song for song, a much better LP IMO. 

Beta Region:  Back in Black - AC/DC - really liked 1984...when it came out.  I remember many a night driving around late with friends jamming to this one.

Charlie Region:  The Wall - Pink Floyd - masterful, not to dismiss "Moving Pictures."  Would have been better off in another bracket.

No Replacements albums???  LOL.  Rock on Cleveland.
