Damo Suzuki: So, um, yeah. Getting older isn't as bad as it sounds. Better than being young & poor (DjDrake) or young & slutty (SG) or young, poor and slutty (Paves); am I right?

Alright, my friends. It's time for another solid little rock jam

Monster Magnet - Spine of God


mmmmmm, delicious




edit: rocking though? I think the people naming Fun House are more down with the essence of the matter here. And it's important we get to the essence, man.

If you want the definitive Monster Magnet "rock" album, I think the easy choice is Powertrip. Dopes is still more in the Stoner-pschedelic vein (not a bad thing though).

Anyway, for Stooges I'd go Raw Power. Others:

Stones: Exile On Main Street (obvious yeah, but I didn't see it during my quick skim)
Hives: Black And White Album
New Bomb Turks: Destroy Oh Boy! or Information Highway Revisted
Iron Maiden: Number of The Beast
Lynyrd Skynyrd: Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd
Ramones: Leave Home

This feels very random. Best rock album is such a broad yet very narrow category, if that makes sense (i.e. are metal, punk, and every sub-genre of rock excluded? Are we just going for straight rock, whatever that is?).

Nah, I think I get what Elastico's driving at. He wants records that ROCK

This was basically the criteria for music at my bachelor party. When I think RAWK, I usually go for 70's hard stuff or late 70's-early eighties metal. Here's some stuff we amped at my bach:

O.A.R. - The Wanderer

Odd choice. I would've gone with their second album, Souls Aflame. The addition of Jerry DePizzo's saxophone really added the depth and diversity to their music they've become well known for.

I don't know, maybe I'm just looking at things more broadly than the rest of you, but I think the best rock albums are ones that do something new and interesting with the medium. Yoshimi does this to a greater extent than even this decade's finest rock records.

O.A.R. - The Wanderer

I don't even know you any more.

Oh, well. Different strokes, as they say.

Reveille did something new and interesting with the medium. Spiderland did something new and interesting with the medium. Super Ae did something new and interesting with the medium. Clouds Taste Metallic did something new and interesting with the medium.

Yoshimi was the Lips trying to stay up-to-date, and to me it's aged poorly compared to the rest of their work.
