It's called Artist's Best. Here's how we play:

Review the following list of 20 musical artists and tell us which you think is their best album. You may remove and replace up to 5 artists on the list to better suit your taste (as I have done to fallencathedral's list). You can also change the album to reflect what you think are the best of the artist's (as I have done to fallencathedral's list).

Also, you should post your list into your LJ, so people can poke and prod.

The list (in no particular order):

The Cure - Head On The Door
Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes
Marilyn Manson - Mechanical Animals
Nirvana - Nevermind
Aerosmith - Pump
David Bowie - Heroes
Brian Eno - Taking Tiger Mountain (by Strategy)
Placebo - Without You I'm Nothing
Chris Isaak - San Francisco Days
The B-52s - The B-52s
XTC - Apples and Oranges
Sarah McLachlan - Solace
Switchblade Symphony - Serpentine Gallery
Soul Coughing - Irresistable Bliss
Sisters of Mercy - Some Girls Wander By Mistake
Mazzy Star - She Hangs Brightly
Siouxsie and the Banshees - Through The Looking Glass
Dead Can Dance- Aion
Duran Duran - Rio
Elvis Costello - Armed Forces
  • i ended up replacing a lot more than five because i didn't know enough about the artists to make a 'best album' judgement. but on the ones we had in common, we often had the same choices:

    The Cure - Head On The Door
    Tori Amos - Boys For Pele
    Ministry - Land of Rape and Honey
    Radiohead - The Bends
    Alice Cooper - Love It To Death
    Alphaville - The Breathtaking Blue
    Roxy Music - Stranded
    Robyn Hitchcock - Moss Elixir
    Grant Lee Buffalo - Mighty Joe Moon
    Wire - Pink Flag
    Bjork - Homegenic
    Depeche Mode - Violator
    Morphine - Cure For Pain
    Sisters of Mercy - Some Girls Wander By Mistake
    Mazzy Star - She Hangs Brightly
    Siouxsie and the Banshees - Through The Looking Glass
    Dead Can Dance - Aion
    Peter Murphy - Deep
    R.E.M. - Murmur
  • I had originally selected Serpentine Gallery too but I switched it to Sweet LIttle Witches because I felt that they captured a lot of energy in the live album that was lacking in any of their studio albums.
  • I would replace one
    Sarah McLachlan – Solace to Sarah McLachlan – Falling Towards Ecstasy
