Well this is it. One more great album removed from the "old school" half of the equation. Now it is the beginning of the band (which most seem to dislike) and the transition into their ultimate epicness against the point of "change", synths and beyond. The critics panned it. Neil (at least) seems to hate it and is embarrassed by it. I love it. I wouldn't trade away those 6 albums for the rest of the catalog. Just couldn't do it. I am guessing many and maybe most of you could. If I were to throw in the live album of that era, you couldn't pry those 7 albums from my hands for anybody else's entire catalog. What say you?... :codger:

Edit: Natural Science, Jacob's Ladder I shall miss ye very very much... :sigh:

Lets think about the question - you only get to keep one of these two sets of music for the rest of your life- the poor 90s stuff shouldnt detract from the latter set of music, its not like you have to look at it. Essentially, nothing can be view as a negative

That being said, I would probably go with the later- If you put permanent waves on the early side, I would go with the early stuff.
I think this is as close to an equal point as there is

I thought so myself and is what I was getting at with this whole exercise. I too believe that Permanent Waves is the tipping point. I however would give it up for my High School first loves. A very important and lonely time in my life and these records (the first 7 actually) were always there for me. I was almost married by the time Permanent Waves came out. It is an 80's album after all... ;)

Just my opinion but all I really feel like I am losing is Permanent Waves - sort of kind of HYF and a bit of Presto. The last two I never heard till about a year ago anyway so no nostalgia there at all for me. Easy choice...

Somehow I knew you wouldn't send me a rose, and call me "the best". :eyeroll: :;) :P

No, if it were easy enough to vote, I would. I just can't!

The only album I love from start to finish on the first one is Hemispheres....so this isn't even difficult anymore. PeW-CA.
