    Battle of the Albums

    Ok, having criticised the current battle of the movies, I guess it's on me to do something constructive. So, ta-da-da-dah! Battle of the Albums. Has to be something released as an album - best ofs do not count.

    I think we'll cap this at 64, might look at 96 if we get enough noms. Normal process of nominate and seconding, with 10 noms and 10 seconds per person. If we get heaps more than 96, I'll post the list of seconded choices and ask for thirds.

    My nominations:
    Revolver - The Beatles
    Abbey Road - The Beatles
    Achtung Baby - U2
    At Folsom Prison - Johnny Cash
    Black Holes and Revelations - Muse
    Brothers in Arms - Dire Straits
    Copper Blue - Sugar
    Nevermind - Nirvana
    Ride the Lightning - Metallica
    Superunknown - Soundgarden

    There are others I might have nominated if I wasn't sure they'll get nominated by someone else.

    Pretty sure there's a thread floating around that got binned. Anyway:

    Nominate:

    AC/DC - Let There Be Rock
    AC/DC - Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (Aus)
    Nirvana - In Utero
    Radiohead - Kid A
    Rage Against the Machine (self titled)
    Led Zeppelin I
    Led Zeppelin IV (zoso)
    System of a Down (self titled)
    Pink Floyd - The Wall
    Pink Floyd - Animals

    Second:

    Radiohead - OK Computer
    Nirvana - Nevermind
    Metallica - Ride the Lightning

    Need someone to nominate Master of Puppets and Justice for All as well, along with AC/DC's Powerage. Would nominate Azadi by Junoon but unfortunately that'd be a wasted nom on you people.
    RIP Craigos

    oasis - Don't Believe The Truth
    Motley Crue - Shout at the Devil

    Motley Crue - Too Fast For Love

    Bit of a mix of maybe six of my favourite albums ever and then a few other that I am very fond of

    If AFD doesn't win this whole thing then this forum has no credibility btw

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!
