God I hated them, most over-rated rap group ever
I swear only white people liked them
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
Aquemini definitely is their best album. Your list is solid. So is CR's.
1. Pink Floyd - Meddle
2. Allman Brothers - Live at Fillmore East
3. The Velvet Underground & Nico
4. Cream - Wheels of Fire
5. Pink Floyd - Animals
Honorable Mentions: Led Zeppelin IV, Zappa - Joe's Garage, and Ween - White Pepper
1. GZA - Liquid Swords
2. Nas - Illmatic
3. Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory
4. Wu-Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang
5. 2Pac - All Eyez on Me
Top 5 rap albums IMO:
1. Illmatic - Nas
2. Enter the 36 chambers - Wu-Tang Clan
3. It takes a nation of millions to hold us back - Public Enemy
4. Liquid Swords - GZA
5. Doe or die - AZ
I left out live albums because that is another discussion entirely but The Last Waltz is the undisputed GOAT for me when it comes to that.
Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
telling myself it's not as hard as it seems - Led Zeppelin
Live Albums for me:
1. Allman Brothers - Live at Fillmore East
2. The Band - The Last Waltz
3. Pink Floyd - Live at Pompeii
4. Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense
5. Neil Young - Live at Massey Hall
Honorable Mentions: A whole lot of Live Phish and Grateful Dead
No rap/hip-hop list is complete without NWA's Straight Outta Compton.
1. Miles Davis - In a Silent Way
2. Mahavishnu Orchestra - Birds of Fire
3. John Coltrane - A Love Supreme
4. Miles Davis - A Tribute to Jack Johnson
5. Medeski, Martin, and Wood - Last Chance to Dance Trance (Perhaps)
Top 10, but not top 5 IMO.
1. Otis Blue - Otis Redding Sings Soul
2. Isaac Hayes - Hot Buttered Soul
3. Marvin Gaye - What's Going On
4. Al Green - Let's Stay Together
5. Sly and the Family Stone - Stand!
1. The Last Waltz - The Band
2. Is There Anybody Out There? The Wall Live 1980–81 - Pink Floyd
3. Live Phish Volume 16: 10.31.98 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Vegas (cover the entire Velvet Revolver Loaded album. This set is Phish at their absolute finest IMHO. Ironically, the group later admitted that they could not fully decide on a choice for the 1998 Halloween album so they decided to go with an album that they already knew for the most part.)
4. Live at Slane Castle - RHCP
5. Stop Making Sense - Talking Heads
It's not an official Live Phish volume, but my favorite show is 12/31/93. Best Reba and Harry Hood imo, and Down With Disease > Split Open and Melt is awesome. The show top to bottom is amazing.
The Who-Live At Leeds
The Allman Brothers--Atlanta International Pop Festival
The Rolling Stones--Get Yer Ya yas Out
MC5--Kick Out The Jams
Jimi Hendrix--Band of Gypsys
Hon Mention: The Band--Last Waltz; Little Feat--Waiting For Columbus; Allman Bros--Live At Fillmore East; Humble Pie--Rockin The Fillmore; The Replacements--The Shit Hits The Fans
I like the setlist on the first disc better than Live at Fillmore East (mainly because of "Dreams"), but think the playing is better at Fillmore East. Both great live albums, though.
Agree with both statements. Dreams is pheneomenal...just off the chain IMO.
And the playing at Fillmore is more refined, while the playing at Atlanta is a little more raw and dirty...which I actually prefer
I agree on both of your sentiments. A Decade of Hits 1969-1979 by The Allman Bros can go toe to toe with any greatest hits collection ever assembled IMHO. Each song segues into the next almost as if it's a great studio album.
2. The Chronic
3. Straight Outta Compton
4. Ready To Die
5. Doggystyle/Me Against The World
I have been trying to figure out my 1 favorite beatles album for a while and that has been a test. I'm reserving one spot for them on this top 5
Lol. West Coast bias much?
And you know this.
I can't even talk. 3/5 of mine are from the south.
