I've most of Metallica's stuff but actually play the less rated albums like Load and Reload way more than the supposed classics i.e. from the Burton period. Anyone else here go against the grain viz M and any other bands you care to think of. Another band that come to mind are Anthrax. Dont care much for their earlier thrash stuff but well like the John Bush period.

no a huge fan of tom waits, but i far prefer his island material (swordfishtrombones onward), to his earlier 'barfly' output

and with captain beefheart, indifferent to material after 'trout mask replica' (everyone's favourite double album), but before 'shiny beast etc'. imo his last 3 albums were the best of his career.

Swordfishtrombones was ON Island rather than post.

Which is precisely why it was one of the first to be kicked out in the ongoing 'Greatest Double Album Of All Time' voting thread. And quite rightly so if you ask me :-)

OK, after my mini rant I suppose I best contribute something valid to Nuge's discussion:

Not that I have anything at all against their earlier, more critically acclaimed output but if I could have only one Pink Floyd album I would probably go for The Final Cut.

Thin Lizzy,despite numerous changes,always remained consistently good for most of their career but highlights,Nightlife(especially Frankie Millers vocals on Still in love with you) and Gorham/Robertson partnership,(much as I loves Gary Moore.)
Yes-again most of their output I have collected and enjoyed over the years but must admit Close to the Edge teaming Rick Wakeman with Bill Bruford probably their finest hour,worst moments Patrick Moraz and Trevor Rabin,though it was nice to see Tony Kaye back in harness.

Some of Love's later and lesser known albums are rather good. If you can get a hold of a copy of Reel-To-Real (thank you Wharfster) it's a fine and funky R n B album.

Flying Burrito Brothers - despite their tortured history the first three studio albums are essential and the (partly overdubbed) live 'contractual obligation' album released in 1972 just as the band was imploding is OK. Little, if any, of their subsequent output is worth shouting about. They reformed a couple of years later with only two original members (one of whom soon left) and became little more than an MOR country band who hung on for far too long.

Dr Feelgood. By the time Lee died everyone else had left but I believe they carry on.

Can anything be worse than the Faces touring with Mick Hucknall doing the Rod-job and Paul Rodgers fronting Queen doesn't exactly inspire?

Yeah - maybe it should have been the other way around?
