3 synth classics from The Human League

Any three of these by the original synth masters Kraftwerk

Odd that you could tack on Dare after the first two as they tracked a very different path after the loss of the other 2 founding members.
Having said that Dare was quality but just quality of a total different direction.

Dare was much slicker and more commercial than the earlier more experimental stuff and of course you had the female singers.

'Being Boiled' was the best thing they ever did imo.
That's a good one but if I had to pick one it would be 'The Black Hit Of Space'

A good run from another great synth band Depeche Mode

Construction Time Again / Some Great Reward / Black Celebration / Music For The Masses / Violator

Hot Rats,Overnite Sensation,Sheik Yerbouti-the great man Frank Zappa R.I.P.

I missed quite a few great albums in his catalogue but they are my 3 especially if you're starting a Zappa collection.

Please Please Me, With The Beatles, Hard Days Night, Beatles for Sale, Help, Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt Pepper, Magical Mystery Tour, White Album, Yellow Submarine, Let it Be, Abby Road.

13 brilliant albums in a row.
Pretty sure Magical Mystery Tour was an EP when it was released. It wasn't until the CD era that it was expanded to become album length.

Just my opinion, but anyone who claims Sgt.Pepper's as brilliant needs to listen to it today. In full. One of the most overrated albums ever.

As it stands, Beatles for Sale to Rubber Soul would be my pick. White Album through to Abbey Road would have been close, but Yellow Submarine destroys that possibility.

what about Michael Jackson off the wall...thriller....and bad.(l guess l will be frowned upon because it not metal or rock):D
You know what? I reckon Off The Wall, even though it came out at the tail end of disco is one of the best disco albums ever and the only Michael Jackson that I would ever listen to (by choice).

Thriller and Bad meh.

What do people have against Yellow Submarine? I love that song. In fact, I like most Ringo songs.

I only read a few pages but I'll try and say a few that might not have been mentioned.
UNKLE - Psyence Fiction; Never, Never, Land; War Stories
Eagles of Death Metal - All 3 released so far.
QotSA - Rated R; Songs for the Deaf; Lullabies to Paralyze
Bonobo - Dial 'M' for Monkey; Days to Come, Black Sands

I was actually considering mentioning them and was going to have a look at Joy Division/New Order.

Could also throw in Madonna, Like A Virgin and True Blue.

Off the Wall was great, Thriller had some great songs and so did bad, but I don't rate them much. MJ is a strange one for me.

I know he was amazingly talented, great voice, great dancer etc. But a lot of his music, even massive hits left me cold. I never enjoyed the power chords in the disco setting !!!

Sherb - I would rather listen to the Fountains of Wayne albums than MJ.
