I was wavering between them and Sugar; decided to avoid choosing by going chronologically. I didn't even get to the 90s, so my list looks like one of those "They don't make 'em like they used to" things.

Have you not heard their latest? Brave New World is certainly a return to form and, IMHO, their best since Seventh Son. Doesn't hurt that Bruce is back in the mix.
