    Even though you stated you were starting to lose your passion there are some great albums on that list.

    I would move Oxygene, Leftoverture, Dreamboat Annie and Dreams Dreams Dreams a lot higher on my list, still it amazes me you can even sort a list like that out in the first place.

    Love seeing my favorite Steely Dan album at #3.:cheers2

    Gimme Back My Bullets at #75 :eek:


    Well, at least you have it on your list. I see another country rock favorite on the low end of the list, too, Point Blank (hardly anyone remember this album or band).

    Glad to see these make your list along with Blackfoot at #36.

    I didn't really lose my passion, it was more about the music being produced this year LG. The years following will be even more generally less liking to my ears. '65-'75 was the best 10 year period of music for me.

    Magic, the last 25 albums could be in any other order. Gimme Back My Bullets doesn't even compare to thier first two albums. Point Blank's first couple of albums are excellent but after that the band sounded to AOR for me.

    Would probably put 2112 on the top of my list as well. Together with Rainbow Rising, Virgin Killer, Viva, Dreamboat Annie and Romantic Warrior. Some bands I don't know I will do a search on. Dillinger, Stonewall, Flax, Shadowfax and Blue Max.

    LOU, another Widowmaker fan. I thought I was the only one. Led by Ariel Bender a.k.a. Luther Grosvenor from Spooky Tooth and Mott The Hoople. Their second album, Too Late To Cry is a scorcher.
