Okay - this is merely a simple discussion game I have come up with to engage fellow music connoisseurs. First off: this is not a Vs. thread. This is ENTIRELY a subjective excercise, designed for discussion and opinions. Fun to play with music lovers! Favorite album: self-explanatory. No defending necessary - you like it the most! Totally subjective. Best album: the one you feel is the most popular, the most representative, the one you’d recommend to someone to check out the artist. Sales figures can factor in this choice. Here the choice is also subjective, but objective factors can be raised. No need to argue - debates, with civility and reason, are encouraged though. Rules: you must know a artist’s catalog fairly well. You might only know a few songs or albums; therefore you might say: Not Qualified. This helps because you must be familiar with an artist’s catalog to argue what is the album you’d most recommend... No best of/ compilation LPs. Live albums welcome! An album can be BOTH favorite and best. Sometimes that happens! You can have two Bests if you like; sometimes you can’t choose! You’re always allowed to change your mind and revise your opinion. Keep it positive. We all have different tastes. Some of my personal (subjective!!!) examples: Pink Floyd: Favorite: Piper at the Gates of Dawn Best: Dark Side of the Moon Zombies: Favorite/Best: Odessey and Oracle Nirvana: Favorite: In Utero Best: Nevermind Keep in mind, the above selections are personal and subjective. I could debate the “best” choices but I won’t unless someone would like a response. Of course I realize “best” is a silly adjective but it’s got less syllables than most popular or most recommended! Have fun. If the thread goes sideways or mean/angry, Gorts - feel free to close it. It’s meant to be a fun game with discussion, and at the end of the day, healthy recommendations! Cheers.
