Mindcrime probably makes my top 25 and I'd go with "Somewhere in Time" for Maiden.

Why? It's a brilliant record. (Don't give me crap about "More than Words"...I bought the record long before that song was released. )

But seriously...the whole record is a profound social commentary. Many write them off as either a "hair band" or "one hit wonder" but neither label is really fair. The hard part was choosing between "Porno..." and "III Sides to Every Story" which, depending on the day, I'll tell you I like better than "Porno"...but today isn't one of those days.

And, if you like guitar...it's hard to beat Nuno Bettencourt...absolutely amazing.

it just makes me laugh I suppose. Reminds me of my childhood, and when any song from that album comes on my iPod (yes, I own it) it's one of those "awwww"/nostalgia moments. Never really listened to it from the angle of being super good musically, might have to try it.

Give it a listen again...musically and lyrically...esp: Decadance Dance, Lil Jack, Money, He Man, Monster, Pornograffitti, Suzi and Hole Hearted.

I suppose I shouldn't say anything about a band critiquing a sex-obsessed society in this* thread but man, there's some great lines throughout. And like I said, Nuno is just amazing...

EDIT: *I thought I was in the OT thread...nevermind, I guess I can say it here.

Check out the video for 'Hole-hearted' - a certain Bruins President along with a former Bruins tough guy make an appearance.

at the 1.50 mark - look familiar?

That was my jam. And I loved that video for those exact reasons.

That was a solid album, IMO. Saw them live a couple of times. Nuno is a beast.

"Somewhere in Time" is a great record. Actually, all their albums up until and including "Seventh Son..." are awesome.

I'm hoping Maiden makes an appearance at the closing ceremonies of the Olympics - KISS was at the Salt Lake City closing ceremonies so why not?

Can't do this. It's not just hard, it's brutal...
Like leaving some pups out of a litter out in the frozen wastes beyond.
Because you're all out of dog food.

Admittedly, this is my summer 2012 desert island disc list. Ask me again in a year and I guarantee at least 3-4 change. Animals, SDRE, Janes will always stay. It's tough.

LancelotLink aka the Jickler, I have 42 out of your 100 in my top 100. BTS - Perfect From Now On and Superchunk's No Pocky for Kitty were #11 and 12 on my current list.

Out of the hundred, there were a lot of the same bands, different albums though, including Johnny Thunders, Wire, Talking Heads, Flaming Lips, Stone Roses, Wire, etc.

Love Beulah, btw. although I prefer When your Heartstrings Break.

Wow, I knew Long Island produced some people with good taste. That's quite a lot where we match. Nice to see another Beulah appreciator too! I wanted to see Built to Spill in Boston last month but they were sold out.

Wire is so great.

Only 10?

I can't do it, it's not possible.

I'd have a problem whittling it down to 100.

I'm not.

It's not their fault they were lumped in w/ all the brutal hairbands of the era. More of a fault of the mtv generation and industry at the time. Their form of music was already dead by the time they came along. I'd also guess that that Bri is probably a guitar player. Nuno can play circles around just a/b any guitar player mentioned in this thread. So much so, when they were just a club band in Boston, Berkley students would pack the area in front of Nuno in awe of his playing, and unique sense of rhythm. They had enough respect in the industry that later Gary sang for Van Halen, Nuno cameos on a lot of artist's albums, and now plays for Rhiana. Most just fade away into oblivion, these guys were musician's musicians.

Cam Neely...very big Extreme fan.

Let's also remember that Pornografitti came out in 1990. I was 7, so I'd say it's safe to assume I was listening with a different ear.

Awesome list. I have several of those if not in my top ten, than at least very close to it.

Note to self: Pick up Imaginaerum.

I was always a fan of the Fixx. OTLTA is a great album from start to finish.

I'm gonna have to break out my Superchunk CD's. I honestly can't decide which I like more between No Pocky, and On the Mouth. Precision Auto, For Tension, Package Thief, New Low(up there with Slackmofo), and The Question is How Fast are some of my favorite 'chunk songs. Pocky's songs more consistently rock though I think.

I think I also prefer BtS's "Keep it like a Secret" to "Perfect From Now on". Hard to choose.

Some other album's I would have loved to have brought to the island would have been:

NOFX-"Punk in Drublic", Rancid - "Let's Go or ...and out come the wolves", Dropkick Murphys- "Do or Die", Less Than Jake- "Pezcore, or Losing Streak", Choking Victim- "No Gods, No Managers", Suicidal Tendencies -"Lights Camera Revolution", OMD- best of, The Cure - "Disintegration", Concrete Blonde- "Bloodletting", School of Fish-eponymous, Tsunami- "Deep End", Husker Du- "The Living End", The Muffs, Juliana Hatfield- "Become What you are", Tiger Trap, Pearl Jam- 10, The Faint - "Blank-Wave Arcade" or "Danse Macabre", NIN- Pretty Hate Machine, Violent Femmes, any Sleater-Kinney album, any Dino Jr, any Pixies, any White Stripes, Weezer- Blue or Pinkerton....hmmm, maybe Pinkerton Thugs -"Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of ****"....yeah, the more I think about it the harder it gets.

Also, Operation: Mindcrime is the only QR album I still own. Good Album. Empire was the only other one I had, but lost it somewhere. Are any of the other ones any good, particularly Mindcrime 2?
