Want me to post my own "damn list"? I don`t know why you actually care so much - But I will, except I`m gonna do it a different way, I`m gonna post only one album by each artist - It`s not as truthful, but it has more diversity & is open for more discussion.

1) Pearl Jam - Binaural
2) The Cure - Disintegration
3) Radiohead - OK Computer
4) Beck - Sea Change
5) Nine Inch Nails - The Fragile
6) Alice in Chains - Dirt
7) The Arcade Fire - Funeral
8) Pink Floyd - The Wall
9) The Velvet Underground - VU & Nico
10) Joy Division - Closer

(now in no order)

11) Neil Young - Rust Never Sleeps
12) The Beatles - The White Album
13) The Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers
14) The Clash - London Calling
15) Soundgarden - Superunknown
16) The Pixies - Bossanova
17) Tool - Lateralus
18) Sigur Ros - (_)
19) The Doors - Morrison Hotel
20) Bob Dylan - Time Out Of Mind

THANK YOU. That`s all i wanted. I`m actually kinda wondering what you see in Binaural over vs., the one pearl jam album i can listen to, and why you chose the wall over dark side of the moon and the white album over the others in the big 5 beatles albums. Good call on the velvet underground and bob dylan.

In case you haven`t noticed, I`m done arguing Nirvana vs. Pearl Jam with you. This is far from me conceding defeat, I`m just sick of it and just want to post lists.

Your surrender on the PJ vs. Nirvana debate is accepted then.

Binaural is a deeper album than Vs. - Vs. is more wild whereas Binaural is more thoughtful & dark.

The Wall is a double album whereas DSOTM is a single album, & there isnt one song on DSOTM that`s as good as `Comfortably Numb`, & overall it`s a better experience

Same thing with The White Album, it`s a double album - That`s also why I chose The Fragile over the Downward Spiral

2 cds are better than 1

While I love the White album, it is one of the few Beales albums that has a few songs that I`ll skip. Still, the brilliance of Blackbird(possibly the most beautiful song ever written), Sexy Sadie, and While my Guitar gently weeps shine through and help to make it a great album. The Beatles just went in every different direction with that one, and I always hear differeing opionions on it, but what i hear is that people either think it`s their best or a little too weird in spots, but they still like it, just not as much as some of their other stuff. It doesn`t quite have the impact for me as Revolver does, to me the album that took rock to new heights that no one ever thought it could reach, but the same can be said for sgt. peppers.

With Pink Floyd, it`s to each his own. Everyone gets a different experience from listening to them, and for me, DSOTM is the best. But, Comfortably numb is the best floyd song ever.
Absolutely Unbelievable song.

Oh yeah, again good call with the Velvet Underground. Heroin is absolute brilliance.

I say the best Beatles song is Across the Universe...

And the best Pink Floyd song is the 23+ minute long epic `Echoes`. `Blackbird` & `Comfortably Numb` are both excellent though - But I`d say the best song on the White Album is Happiness is a Warm Gun... I think John Lennon was miles beyond Paul.

Oh jeez, thank you for bringing that song up, absolutely fantastic song and one of the most underated songs ever. The kind of song that you just listen to and tune everything else out....(in case you`re wondering, Across the Universe) John wrote better lyrics than paul, but i really have never been able to choose between them. For every In my Life there`s a Yesterday, and my fave Beatles song is one of their most amazing collaborations, A Day in the Life, now that song`s a trip. There was always a mystery behind John`s lyrics, he let you interpret a lot of songs yourself, throw your own meaning in them. Across the Univese is actually a good example of this, I`ve searched online and still can`t find a meaning for it that people agree on. They were at their best when they were working together.

Happiness is a war gun is a damn good song, it was actually the influence for one of the best songs of the 90s, Radiohead`s Paranoid Android. John`s one of the only people who could thrown 3 songs into 1 and make it brilliant.

I`ve actually never heard echoes, I`ll have to check that one out, but i have to mention The Piper at the Gates of Dawn album as a whole. Another underated album, and one of the first psychedelic ones at that. If Syd Barret hadn`t burned out, he could have done some amazing things. But David Gilmour is one of the best and again, underated guitarists ever (where he placed on the rolling stones guitarists list was an absolute travesty, but then again, Eddie van Halen was at 70 behind Jack White and Johnny Ramone, so I doubt anyone took that list seriously) and Roger Waters took that band to some amazing places musically.

The Rolling Stone greatest guitarists list is the worse list of any kind, ever assembled, ever.

Just to trace back to this for a second... I find it funny you 2 just wrote that, yet used a Rolling Stone magazine article to show me that Pearl Jam isn`t important

ANYWAYS... The main reason I say John Lennon is miles beyond Paul.. Is that while they were in the Beatles, they could be considered equal.. John Lennon`s solo career is much more impressive than Wings & Paul`s solo career. After the Beatles, Paul never wrote a song like `Imagine`, or `Woman is the Nigger of the World`, or `Mother`... John got better after the Beatles, Paul got worse. John kept taking risks & Paul didn`t.

Also while I agree for the most part the RS list of best guitarists was crap... I don`t think it was a bad choice to put Johnny Ramone over EVH - Technically, EVH was better.. But Johnny Ramone to me, anyway, has more memorable riffs & the way he played guitar really got right into peoples hearts, whereas EVH was just trying to impress everyone. Also no one really played guitar like Johnny Ramone until he did.. There`s more rock guitarists out there, unknowingly, that are playing with more influence in their music from Johnny than EVH indirectly.

On a side note.. going back to Paul McCartney. The Ramones actually got their name from Paul when Paul used to check into hotel rooms under the last name `Ramone` to avoid being annoyed by fans & press. The more you learn about silly sh*t like that, the more you see just how huge the Beatles were/are.

One of them was by the rolling stone. The other was voted on by people in the music industry.

technically people in rolling stone magazine who come up with the lists ARE in the music industry. There`s no real difference... There`s no logical reason why one is more qualified than the other.

Eddie Vedder voted on the list. doesn`t his opinion mean more to you than some random editor?

I respect Eddie Vedder`s opinion to choose the Who, that doesn`t mean I respect all their opinions. I think his opinion is more credible than practically anyones.

there are still people on their whose opinions deserve to be respected, people who have seen the music industry inside out, and have been there for a while, not just reported on it. People like

Rick Rubin (one of the best producers out there)
Lou Reed (Velvet Underground one of the most overlooked bands ever)
Bono & The Edge
Roger Waters
Flea
Keith Richards
David Bowie

Although i do understand where you`re coming from (whoever !***** let britney spears vote should die)
