Okay, the rules of this one are simple. We'll select an artist. Each person lists their top 5 favorite albums from that band. No "ties", no more than 5. The top 5 has to cover the bands entire discography.

Once everyone has replied, then we'll move onto the next band.

It's not really a win/lose type scenario, just a fun way to get a handle on each persons tastes. Discussion is wanted, so just wing it and have fun.

Artist #1 - LED ZEPPELIN

1. Led Zeppelin I
2. Houses Of The Holy
3. Led Zeppelin III
4. Physical Graffiti
5. Presence

I know, Zeppelin IV didn't make the top 5, but it would be the next one.

1. Presence
2. Physical Graffiti
3. Houses Of The Holy
4. II
5. III

The first 3 were easy and the no ties rule makes it more difficult and more fun. Nice game SD.

Nice to see another fan of Presence! The only Zep album I'm really tired of is Zep II, I didn't listen to Zep IV for about 20 years...now I can spin it again (except for Stairway).

Cool! Houses Of The Holy is such a classic album, "The Rain Song" is one of the best tunes from the entire decade. Plus...The Ocean is FUNKY!

Artist #2 - Kansas

1. Two For The Show(Live)
2. Song For America
3. Point Of Know Return
4. Masque
5. Freaks Of Nature





That was a hard one! I had to kick out In The Spirit of Things, which was the best album they did with Steve Morse, Monolith a SEVERELY underrated album and Leftoverture.

What about live albums????? That would change this list. Alrighty, live albums included!!!!!

I got really burnt on Zep a number of years ago(that's also when I stopped listening to FM radio in my car on a regular basis) and Presence became one of my favorites because you don't hear those tunes on the radio.......... no radio burnout!

and the songs are just as good..........


Now I can happily listen to these again(Stairway is the only one that still bugs me, oh and D'yer Mak'r still drives me nuts, as well.).

Live albums SHOULD be included, because despite what many "clueless" people think...live is where you really find out what kind of band you're listening to.

The live album Two For The Show is what got me into Kansas. That version of Magum Opus smokes!!!!!!!!

I'm not quite as "hip" to Kansas as I should be, but I'll give this a shot.

1. Leftoverture
2. Song For America (one of my Dad's favorite albums)
3. Point of Know Return
4. Two For The Show (live)
5. Viny Confessions (the first Kansas album I owned)

I like the debut album and Monolith too. I've actually never heard Masque, I need to remedy that.

It is their darkest album.

That was a hard list I'm a Kansas fan and very album has something good to offer! From the first thru Monolith they were one of the finest Progressive Rock bands in the land, but, since I guess that they never wrote the 20min epic and had a few "hits", a lot of prog snobs put them down.

As far as Kansas I have no list for this one, I have never owned any Kansas ever, and only in the last couple years picked up a greatest hits album.

I know the first one already passed, but I've only ever heard one Kansas album.

Led Zeppelin:
1.) III
2.) II
3.) I
4.) Houses Of The Holy
5.) Presence

IV would be my 6th pick, I still really like side 2. The whole first side is just so overplayed I don't want to listen to it anymore.

A couple interesting choices there chewie, I've never seen Live At Last listed as a favorite before.

advice:

the "Live At Hammersmith 1981" date (released as the bonus disc to the Mob Rules deluxe edition or via bootleg) is FAR superior to the studio-tweaked LIVE EVIL.

The best Ozzy concert recording is from Asbury Park on August 5th, 1975 on the Sabotage tour, same tour as Live At Last but better recording and they even do "Megalomania" and "Hole in The Sky" on that one. Worth finding via bootleg and it's been released under a ton of different titles.
