    WC's Fave Five Albums - 1979




    Another doozy of a year where it'll be very difficult to see which albums make it.

    Acceptable Albums: Studio/Live/Soundtracks

    Not Acceptable Albums: Compilations/Greatest Hits

    Any questions please send me a message...Thanks for sending your list.

    You'll have until Saturday, May 18th to get them in.

    Really tough year. I feel like I'm going to be leaving off a few ultra popular choices due to knowing they'll get some love.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Albums - 1979

    Vote for the ones that are truly your favorite ones...I think that's what 2002 proved...we had very low point totals, because there were so many individual albums voted for. I don't vote what I think is best or most popular...just my favorite.

    This was an easy one for me as the five I've listed are the only 5 I've listened to all the way through.

    feels like a bit of a weak year. a couple cult hits but most of the albums put out by long-standing artists were pretty middle-of-the-pack. I imagine my #1 will be over #1 again though

    All lists must be submitted by tomorrow, so if you're waiting to get one in, now would be a good time. Considerably less lists than what we've been getting, but still a good turnout. Might be able to finish the countdown before the 3 day weekend here in the States coming up.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Albums - 1979

    Let's get the countdown started with the 10 Pointers:


    The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle - The Sex Pistols (Booty #5)



    Spoiler:




    The Soundhose Tapes - Iron Maiden (Creeping Death #5)



    Spoiler:




    Live Killers - Queen (Regal or Riot #5)



    Spoiler:




    Torfrockball Im Huuhnerstall - Torfrock (Baloocha #5)



    Spoiler:




    Lovehunter - Whitesnake (Ms Flock #5)



    Spoiler:




    Drums and Wires - XTC (Fuji Vice #5)



    Spoiler:




    Prince - Prince (Jimmy King #5)



    Spoiler:




    Discovery - ELO (Mikk #5)



    Spoiler:




    Replicas - Tubeway Army (Mister Miracle #5)



    Spoiler:



    Edit: Forgot to talk about these albums...(don't have children)

    Paul Di'Anno fronting a very different Iron Maiden, but still good stuff. Di'Anno was not your typical metal singer, had a more punkish growl. I like Di'Anno as Maiden's vocalist, but I don't think they would've gone on to see the heights they did without Bruce. For me the key to Maiden was when Adrian joined, but still check out Di'Anno's Maiden...good stuff. Live Queen is always a great thing. Torfrock pops up again and it makes me laugh, because I haven't a clue to what they're singing about, but it's not bad. Early Whitesnake that isn't bad, just a little different from what you may be used to by them. Coverdale has always had the pipes, Moody and Marsden aren't a bad guitar duo, but everyone except Coverdale and John Lord has that "local cover band" look to them. XTC is such an interesting group, it's a shame that Andy Partridge suffers from stage fright so they never tour. Love ELO, always thought Bev Bevan was an underrated drummer...love this version with Kelly on bass and Jeff Lynne writing classic after classic. Tubeway Army is known mainly for singer Gary Numan, who'd release a solo album that had the hit "Cars" later this year, but the band basically played on it. Replicas is a great album. Forgot Prince...I think this was the first record I heard from Prince...great stuff to come for a long time.

    Good start to the list, so many good live albums this year too.

    Had no idea that Gary Numan was with the Tubeway Army, will need to investigate a bit more

    The 20 Pointers:


    Bomber - Motorhead (Creeping Death #4)



    Spoiler:




    No.1 In Heaven - Sparks (Regal or Riot #4)



    Spoiler:




    Together Again - The Dubliners (Baloocha #4)



    Spoiler:




    Strangers in the Night - UFO (Ms Flock #4)



    Spoiler:




    Lodger - David Bowie (OMB #4)



    Spoiler:




    Squeezing Out Sparks - Graham Parker and the Rumour (Fuji Vice #4)



    Spoiler:




    Off the Wall - Michael Jackson (Jimmy King #4)



    Spoiler:




    Down to Earth - Rainbow (Mikk #4)



    Spoiler:




    Get The Knack - The Knack (Mister Miracle #4)



    Spoiler:



    Another wonderful group of albums. Bomber is one of the first albums I heard from Motorhead, great song and album. Sparks is one of those bands that are hard to describe. Basically, a brother act with Russell, who has matinee idol looks and a great voice, then we have Ron and his basic job is to play synths, which he does well and also be super bizarre, which he also does very well. Good band with songs that are slightly ajar, but worth a listen. The Dubliners are good band, not the biggest fan of Irish Folk music, but I like their brand of it. Strangers in the Night, amazing live album from UFO. Michael Schenker is a phenomenal guitar hero, this is the sweet spot for the band. Lodger is the last of the Berlin trilogy for Bowie. Carlos Alomar and Adrian Belew share guitar duties, some good stuff from David. I really like Graham Parker, he's an excellent songwriter. I kind of think Elvis Costello had the career that Parker could've had. One of my favorite Michael Jackson albums, so many great songs. I love Rainbow, but like a lot of Blackmore bands, they (he) could never settle on a singer. I just wish he played rock music again. Yes, we all know My Sharona, because it's one of the best guitar riffs ever, but the album as a whole is fantastic if you're a fan of Power Pop.

    A good 3/4 albums here would've made my list had it say been a top 10.

    Very good selection here, think i'd have gone for Overkill as my Motorhead album from this year instead of Bomber although both very solid

    Kind of surprised I’m the only vote for that Prince album, I think it’s solid. I enjoy that MJ album a lot too.
