Ziggy & Exile for me.

 

Bit of a shame for Hendrix that this album was nominated. Axis & Electric Ladyland are superior.

Double Bowie for me too. Ziggy's a masterpiece and Moonage Daydream is probably my favourite song ever (especially the live Hammersmith version with Ronson absolutely fucking shredding). I prefer a few of his other albums over Hunky Dory, but I'd still rather listen to that than any of the others in this group.

Bowie & Bowie for me too. His two best albums IMHO, Hunky Dory being the standout. I love Hendrix, but I find his albums a bit overwrought and too polished in places.

I take it loads of you haven't heard Exile on main St?!

Exile on Main St is a great album, probably the Stones best.

 

Darkness on the Edge of Town is also a great album, Springsteen's return after a 3 year legal fight with Mike Appel over his contract.

 

Are You Experienced, for me, not Hendrix's best. That accolade goes to Electric Ladyland.

 

Hunkydory and Ziggy Stardust are two of my favourite albums with Ziggy just shading it.

Same here.

Terrible group. It's like Sophies Choice for albums.

Ha Ha. The Times style guide for journalists bans the use of the Sophie's choice metaphor but it does seem to have crept into common usage.

I’ve never heard of “Sophie’s Choice”, what does it mean? 

 

Bollocks to The Times. Flicked through a copy once and it had adverts for The S*n.

Sophie's choice is the same as 'Damned if you do and damned if you don't.'

    • Would they? These are government issued permits - the rules are in place and as the Govt is opposed to the breakaway they certainly won't be changing it. If we are not within the FA - then we can't get permits. I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss it. Also, I wouldn't be so quick to suggest this Government is particularly concerned over the rule of law. They've proven that time and time again. 
    • I’ve said something similar to this in the past and again yesterday and I fully agree with scrapping the EL.
        Drop the EL group stages. Have a 64 team group stage. Top 16 or 32 clubs play for the CL, the next 16 or 32 clubs play for the UEFA Cup and even now, the bottom 16 play for the Conference Cup.
        That would allow 7 or 8 English clubs to qualify for it each season and how well you do is based on merit. 
        Allow some sort of weighting to the TV deal (ie a group game of PSG v Man Utd gets more revenue than Prague v Salzburg or something) and clubs to organise their own sponsorship deals for the games and boom, done, simples    Project Big Picture should also come into play. Bin off the League Cup, have more CL Group games. Reduce the Premiership to 18 sides. 
    • The Champions League is like that now though. You tend to get the same teams - the Pot 4 teams are really the only ones that tend to be any different - but once you get into the knockout stages - out of 16 you have PSG, Madrid, Barca, Athletic, Juve, Munich, City, Sevilla, Porto, each and every year.    As I said earlier, the much vaunted German model has led to Munich winning 8 straight league titles and basically the only time they were challenged they went in and bought the 3 best players from Dortmund. And Dortmund's business models seems to be pretty much buy young players, and sell them on. Rinse and repeat. 
    • Yeah good luck with that when the 14 Premier League clubs are allowed visas but the 6 arent. No discrimination or anti competitive forces at work there. The courts would overturn that in a flash.   Of course the 'ban' could apply to all PL clubs, who's that going to hurt again?
    • Fuck it to death with a diseased elephant cock. Hack it's corpse to bits and burn the bits in the street. Then fuck the ashes with a diseased elephant cock, just to be sure.
