    Well that didn't take long before someone threw in a glaring omission. It's pretty hard to make a list like that without going back and editing constantly.

    BTW, is American Beauty your entire list? :)

    An exception should surely be made in the case of the Dead, whose notoriety is primarily derived from the quality of their live shows.

    Re: Your Favorite Albums

    There's only one that I've listened to with any regularity (once a month, give or take) over a long period of time. I have a bunch that I'm really into right now, but ask me in a few years whether they've stood the test of time.

    The Twilight Singers - Blackberry Belle

    How could I have forgotten Dylan? Blood on the Tracks especially. Desire is one of the most underrated albums ever, too.

    Add Electric Ladyland by Hendrix to the mix as well. And the Band's self-titled album.
