I was going to say Hole as I marginally prefer Celebrity Skin to Live Through This but then remembered their very weak final album Nobody’s Daughter.

The only other I can think of is Taylor Swift. Unfortunately I am being serious.


#4

At The Drive-In recently put an end to their inevitable shoe-in appearance in this thread.


#5

I’d almost agree with Talk Talk but just think although Laughing Stock is great, Spirit of Eden is just one of the greatest albums of all time…an absolute masterpiece.


#6

Pretty rare isn’t it, this?

Most bands peak in the middle, and the rest tend to just get shitter.


#7

It’s a toss up between Blues and Sky Valley for Kyuss’ best album but I’d go with Valley > Blues. No one thinks And the Circus Leaves Town is best though. No one.


#8

I do.


#9

I don’t know why you’d lie to me like this.


#10

Combination of my arrogance and your stinkin’ attitude m7.

Nah, it’s just full of bangers. I like it a lot. Also, I think I over listened to BOTRS when I first got into them.


#11

It does have it’s fair share of bangers, I’ll give you that. I actually really didn’t like it compared to the others when I first heard it but over the years it’s grown on me. It’s no Sky Valley though imho.


#12

It’s good that they all exist.

#15

Think St Vincent’s most recent is my 3rd favourite of hers


#16

Veto. Strange Mercy is much better than S/T

Still love her tho.


#17

On paper.


#18

Thats the point. To celebrate the acts that just keep growing.

I think this is the most accepted opinion and I probably rate them about level but its an argument that can very well be made. And there is certainly progression between the two.
