    It doesn't particularly matter if there's multiple lineup changes provided there's some sort of constant. And to me, the "classic" lineup of a band is when they scaled the heights. Every band will have a point in their career where they don't scale those heights again.

    As Corrin's already said, Guns N Roses' classic lineup is obviously the one that recorded Appetite For Destruction. Red Hot Chili Peppers' classic lineup is Kiedis, Frusciante, Flea, Smith.

    Interestingly, despite his being part of the band for almost 15 years, I wouldn't have Chris Schifflett anywhere near the Foos' classic lineup. I'd go Grohl, Smear, Mendel, Hawkins.

    There's an argument tho that they recorded their best album (Freaky Styley, obvz) with only two of those in situ.

    It's probably a more interesting Q for bands whose creative hub was completely altered with changes. Say Pink Floyd or Fleetwood Mac.

    Sorum possibly a better drummer but he didn't play with Izzy long. Izzy leaving was the big blow, the reason why there was nothing new after the Illusions until the 'nu' lineup and Chinese Democracy

    Rolling Stones an interesting one, got to be the Mick Taylor years for standard of albums when he was around though.

    Fairport Convention have had so many changes there is a timeline on their Wiki entry, think the 'classic' lineup only existed for a couple of months.

    The Definitive List Of 2013?s Best Albums

    Usually I'm pretty ambivalent about this sort of article but I thought this was a bit witty. So I thought we could play a game and see if we can guess which bands the article writer is referring to this year. Probably a pretty obvious pick for 3. is Arcade Fire but there's no way 7. ain't Lorde.

    10 has got to be Obliteration

    9 sounds like the National

    I have a feeling 8 might be Typhoon, doesn't quite fit though.

    Run the Jewels fits 6 perfectly.

    5 sounds like Queens of the Stone Age

    Just were does Sigur Ros fit in? Pretty sure it will be a staple for most lists.

    This is great, love the Pitchfork review generator as well. 1. has to be Vampire Weekend, and look who came out on top of Pitchfork's top 50...

    Edit: Holy **** their top 10 could probably all just about fit in there, that's good work.

    Had enough of Hybrid Theory? How about some Psybrid Theory? Some genius has taken out the vox from this album and replaced them all with Gangnam Style for every track.

    I remember the days when the unemployed/students had nothing better to do that look for work/study. Damn you internet.

    Not sure who I'm looking at for this but after some recommendations for a house party play list. Genre isn't too big an issue but I'd say take Flume and Burial sort of stuff as your starting point but throw in some rap/hip hop/rnb for good measure.

    Oh ffs , I know I'm rightly going to be humiliated by proper people who understand music and aren't in a ******** fantasy of 1977,TC and Brumbers will humiliate me if they even deign to note me, but I love this



    I mean I actually really like the Pretty Reckless, and it's not a shock, I always like female-fronted rock bands, even loved Tranvision Vamp, Lush, Sleeper, Echobelly, PJ Harvey, Belly and Republica, but Blondie and Altered Images started my love The Banshees often made me squee too.

    Yet am I just falling into a terrible mid-life crises with TPR, I think I like them, but Momsen is a serious ****ing young vamp that could turn anyone of my advanced age.
