THE STOOGES Fun House 
 

THE STOOGES had three albums, not counting bootlegs and later releases.  They're all excellent, but Fun House is their greatest achievement, and still stands as one of the toughest records ever produced.  It's probably my favorite ROCK record.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

I've always been a little more than a moderate Led Zeppeling fan. I don't worship them, but I like them quite a bit. That's a band where it is extremely difficult to pick a favorite album, there are so many good ones. However, if pressed, I would say that Houses of the Holy represents a high-water mark just a hair or two above everything else in their body of work.

To me this album represented a period of time when Zep had arrived as rock and roll royalty, but were still inspired and completely relevant to that part of the 70's in which it was released. It contains arguably my absolute favorite Zep song, "The Song Remains the Same." Jimmy Page had truly arrived at this point in terms of great guitar production. The aforementioned track is so thick with multiple guitar dubs that, especially when listening on headphones, they seem to practically swirl around each other in very satisfying ways. It's just a hell of a great album from start to finish, with the exception of "D'yer Mak'er," which I've never cared for. But the rest of the album is so solid that it remains my "just barely" favorite in spite of that unfortunate track.
But, alas, it IS Led Zeppelin, so everybody is going to have a different favorite album, and good on them for it. It's pretty difficult to fault anybody for preferring Physical Graffiti, or really any of the first four that preceding Houses.
I meant to respond to this post, but neglected to.  I love LED ZEPPELIN and had all their albums on vinyl (even CODA and excepting the live album The Song Remains The Same).  Now, I have all on CD except those two and In Through The Out Door which I'm bound to pick up at some point.   Wink 
I rank Houses of the Holy below the first four (which is no denigration) my favorite being the first (I think I'll listen to it now...)

Yeah, it's pretty much an impossibility to fault anybody for their Zep favorites. Although the first is not my favorite, Good Times Bad Times and Black Mountain Side remain among my favorite Zep tracks.

"Black Mountain Side" is on the 4th album... right? 
No one can overlook the 4th album.  That must be LED ZEP's "greatest achievement" but though I love it still, it's not nearly as fresh as some of the others... prob'ly 'cause I played it so much... two vinyl copies, cassette and CD later.  It is a cornerstone record, with their strongest songs.

Cool.  I've long wanted another posthumous release, Crash Landing 'cause I like the cover.  I've never had a copy.

Nah, just too lazy to look up the track listings.  I usually don't bother, and yup, it proves my brain is not infallible.   Wink

Back in the day, the very first record album I ever bought myself (though not the first I owned) was ELTON JOHN Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player because the record I wanted wasn't in stock at the little hole-in-the-wall record store I frequented.  I wanted Honky ChateauELTON was my first favorite when I started buying records (though I loved lots of other artists before that)... I owned a number of his albums back in the day and liked them all, ironically I did not own Honky Chateau until not too many years ago.  It's the album that contains my favorite ELTON song "Honky Cat".  Well all these years later, it's my favorite of his.

"I" is my favorite Zep too. The further they get away from the blues, the less I like them, although I did like them all the way up until the end.

Mexican Moon by Concrete Blonde.

I love all albums from Bloodletting to Mojave, its just the title track is my fave so I picked it.

The CD that made me realise I'm never gonna be a music fan.
Everyone like music, but not everyone is a music head. I am not, and I know this now. I have never felt as passionate about a band as I feel about them.

I simply love everything. I've listen to the b sides, the covers, spent hours going through youtube tying to see what I can listen too as they're not popular at all in the UK. I love Johnette Napolitano's voice and the earthiness of her songs. Never in my life have I enjoyed music like I have with this band, and I fear never again.
