    rubber Soul "broke" the Beatles for me. It was the album that I picked out of all the Beatles records in my mom's collection at about age 12 and said, wow, this is really good. I had heard those albums my whole life, but that was the first one I really heard on my own. And ironically, over the years I've found that a lot of people my age had the same experience with the same album. I meet few people who were adultly introduced to the Beatles by, say, Abbey road or Sgt. Pepper. And the White Album always seems to come later (I still don't own the White Album, even though I love a lot of songs on it).

    Coincidence? I guess in retrospect it kind of broke the Beatles too, sent them into maturity.

    re: Turn on the Bright Lights -- you know, I never really got into Interpol when they were big, but I pulled out that album randomly a couple of months ago and I have to say there are a couple of real gems on it. I thought they were a flash in the pan, but they had some real talent. Are they still around?
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I saw Interpol live last summer, wonderful concert that was. TOTBL is their classic of course, and Antics had some good tracks. However, their third offering is a huge dud, tried to become atmospheric but ended with a snoozer. I fear for their future.

    ps. Magical Mystery Tour was the one to break The Beatles to me.

    Re: Favorite Rock Albums

    Yeah, Interpol are getting worse with each release.

    Antics had 3-4 great songs and the rest was boring.

    Our Love to Admire (their newest) is just plain boring.

    Bright Lights will always be a modern classic tho IMO.

    Of course, ask me next week and this could change.
    Exactly!

    Being now an old foggy, I am of course a die hard fan of those traditional super groups of the 60's/70s. It seems I always have a Beatles, Who, Zeppelin, or Pink Floyd CD in my car. Those use to 8-tracks by the way.

    Right now I'm listening to....

    Meet The Beatles (still sounds as fresh today as it did 40+ years ago)
    Who Live At Leeds (wore the grooves off this album back in it's day)
    David Gilmour - About Face
    Allman Brothers Live at Filmore East (ahhh - Memory Of Elizabeth Reed)

    I always get depressed when I read threads like this because it shows my age.

    I don't recognize a lot of the stuff you younger people are listing.

    OH MY GAWD! I'M MY DAD!

    Now I know this is about personal favorites, but I noticed that there are some very popular albums, from back in the "heyday", that haven't been listed. Where is there any?....

    Emerson, Lake, and Palmer



    Deep Purple




    Aerosmith





    Boston



    Kansas



    No Jethro Tull. No Supertramp Crime of the Century or Breakfast In America? No Cars or Cheap Trick either.

    And I can't believe this one hasn't been listed.




    I guess it shows that some bands (albums) endure the test of time, and reach across better to future generations, when others don't.

    Re: Favorite Rock Albums

    I still have an original "Frampton Comes Alive" record (vinyl for the younger folks) which I never opened. I don't really know why I never opened and played it.....

    I changed over to classical many years ago; but have to have classic rock on my MP3 when I run. My favorite five:

    1. Abbey Road by the Beatles. This was not my "breakout" Beatles album (that was the Hey Jude album).....But I felt it raised rock and roll up to a different level at the time.
    2. The Wall by Pink Floyd. I used this to indoctrinate my oldest daughter. She's 31 now and her tastes are much different, except for the music on that album. I never get too old for this.....She never forgets how we listened to this when she was about five.
    3. Tommy by the Who.
    4. Greatest Hits by the Moody Blues. The original two record/tape/cassette/CD version. The Air Force sent me to Oklahoma in 1973 (I've been here ever since); and for many years that was my traveling music coming back to Cincinnati to see my family.
    5. The White Album by the Beatles.

    There can't be a complete list for me, however, without mentioning two other albums. Led Zepplin with "Stairway to Heaven" and perhaps the greatest true rock song ever written, "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" by Iron Butterfly. Just the mentioned songs are enough to put these albums in my top ten.

    Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

    Thank the heavens that pedro is not currently on the site. I think he, and a few others, really showed their absolute disgust and disdain for this song when we had a thread awhile back on best/worst rock songs.
