GREATEST ALBUM OF ALL TIME, THE ELITE 8

1-darkside of the moon-pink floyd(fantastic album by itself and if you watch it synced up with the wizard of oz you will see how amazingly brilliant it is)

2-sgt peppers-the beatles(not the beatles best album imo but shows how influential they are that an album i would consider their fourth best is probably gonna make the top 4 of all time....revolver,  rubber soul, and the white album are all "better" imo but this is their most groundbreaking)

3-led zeppelin IV(exile in particular and the stones in general...mediocre mindless rock...nothing exceptional)

4-i cant decide....hwy 61 is one of the best and most influential albums ever and aja is one of my absolute favorites.....i cant vote against either so ill just go with whatever the rest of you pick

I prefer Steely's Dan's - Katy Lied and Reelin' in The Years - Aja got too much airplay for me to fully appreciate it -


jagrrl -- Reelin' In The Years was a song, off of Can't Buy A Thrill, their debut, which is a great album as well. But the jazz ensemble on Aja was breathtaking, IMO.

#1 - Time is my all-time favorite song. I even quoted it in my high school yearbook.
#2-  Sgt Pepper's was a landmark LP. Eat a Peach, merely immortal.
#3 - Definitive Zep...interchangeable with Houses of the Holy
#4 - I just love this album. Aja is groovy, and a wonderful headphone listen. Sorry Bob...personal bias.
