    Some very nice choices in there. You need to listen to Crime of the Century by Supertramp. Many of your choices would be in my top ten, but Supertramp would be number 1. And Damn the Torpedos is a damned good album.

    Re: top ten albums

    Physical Graffiti - Led Zeppelin is one that i wanted to fit in there as well.

    i feel like the guys in High Fidelity hehe.

    Ditto Neutral Milk Hotel and Pink Floyd, though Wish You Were Here would be my choice. Must add Electro Shock Blues by Eels.

    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    To me, no top ten list is valid without GNR Appetite, Fleetwood Mac Rumours and Springsteen's Born to Run.

    Mellon Collie as your favorite Pumpkins album (let alone Top 10)!? I would call it a distant 3rd behind Gish and Siamese Dream...but to each their own list.

    Some nice choices overall on here. Gotta have some Hendricks though. I'd throw in Band of Gypsys. Also, Joshua Tree, Master of Puppets, something from the Stones...and...just too many more to name.


    There was one?
