Vote for the CD you believe is the Best of All Time. The ten CDs with the most votes will advance to the single elimination phase of voting. If there are any ties, a separate vote will be taken between the tied albumss to determine which advance.


Feel free to post your vote in this thread, that's why responses are allowed. I'm going to list some notable songs from each CD, so you guys can get a glimpse of what each CD has. Of course, the only way to fully rate a CD is to listen to the entire thing, but I guess this is the best I can do. No links this time though, sorry, but feel free to IM me and I can provide the MP3 of the song if I have it.

I'd probably replace 'Caroline No' with 'Wouldn't it be Nice' for the Beach Boys... fwiw. But how great of songs were 'Sloop John B.' and 'God Only Knows'? Anyway, I didn't vote for the Beach Boys but I did noimate them.. I know they're oldies but they were almost on the same level as the Beatles in their heyday.. and if iirc, this CD was ranked as the 2nd or 3rd best of all-time by Rolling Stones? anyway..

While we're campaigning for CDs:


Dark Side of the Moon

Speak to Me/Breathe

On The Run


The Great Gig in the Sky


Us and Them

Any Colour You Like

Brain Damage



Not a bad song in the bunch.


But if you can't bring yourself to vote for them, give Synchronicity some love :mischief

Since Juanky campaigns for his choice:


Is there a more famous cover than Abbey Road?



Come Together


Maxwell's Silver Hammer

Oh! Darling

Octopus's Garden

I Want You (She's So Heavy)

Here Comes the Sun


You Never Give Me Your Money

Sun King

Mean Mr. Mustard

Polythene Pam

She Came in Through the Bathroom Window

Golden Slumbers

Carry That Weight

The End

Her Majesty


Something and Come Together were both #1's, while everyone knows Octopus's Garden (unless they are a commie) and Here Comes the Sun is another big hit. Overall, its the best selling album of the best band ever.


Not putting Dark Side though. :thumbup
