David Bowie - Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust(I just can't vote for REM; in any poll)

Dire Straits - Dire Straits(Please; this is a no-brainer for me)

Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here(not a big Stones fan. Shoot me if you want)

Janis Joplin - Pearl(Janis was one of a kind. Besides, I like the blues.)

Black Crowes - Shake Your Money Maker(RHCP just don't do it for me)

INXS - Listen Like Theives(only because I don't like Simon. Otherwise...)

Steely Dan - Can't Buy a Thrill(I like both bands, but this album is one of those "once in a lifetime" deals. It nkicks major ass)

I couldn't vote for either the Cure or Depeche Mode, because they both blow.

Janis Joplin

Black Crowes

Can't decide on this one, don't really like either albums

Maybe next you should do the Stones vs Beatles debate, that always gets people riled up!

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.

I HATE #1.....Bowie. And I am pissed cause AFP was better than quite a few on the other list, kthx.

2. Melloncamp. I adore this album it is my favorite from him. Paper in Fire make the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

3. Floyd. Not hard at all.

4. Petty. Much as I love Janis, I love this album by TP more.

5. Crowes. Just had that playing in the car. That album is in my Top 10 all time.

6. INXS although I really love Graceland.

7. Easy peasy, Steely Dan

8. ROFL..the Ultimate Goth Showdown! Well commercial Goth at least. Color me a Cure Girl.

This one strikes me as more influeneced by age than the first one.
