I appreceiate the honesty. I had a tough choice making my pics. I didn't want to just try and secure the best of the best albums by the best artists. I did that on a couple of picks, but did so because it fit what I was going through with my list.

I was picking albums that helped shape my musical tastes presently. Each album I picked has had a strong influence in my life.

My 10th pick was gutsy, and one 99% of the people might not know, but it was part of my grand design.

I figured I'd suffer some with that pick and one or two others, and it seems I was right.

If I go out this round, at least I had fun and know that I picked an important list to me.

I think so.

I doubt we would get that many more votes by extending the polls for another day. What does everyone else think?

Since others are giving the reasons why they picked, I thought I'd follow suit.

1. Hollowgen - While I liked a few picks from ChrisKnudsen, Hallowegen had more albums I enjoyed.

2. TripWire - As strong ast Lokimok's list was, TripWire had Violator, my favorite DM album. Throw in a strong boxset from Bjork and Violent Femmes with a little Moby. Hard to pass up.

3. illennium - Liz Phair and the Pixies sealed this choice for me.

4. BadlyDrawnBoy - Even though I love Rio. Ten, Purple Rain and The Josuha Tree stole this race.

5. orangecrush18 - Tough Choices. Both had a strong Cure album. And I hold Laid up as one of my favorite albums, but I had to give it to orangecrush with his REM and DM choices.

6. Rogue588 - ESB.

7. Drexl - Had to give it to Drexl with The Wall and Fumbling Towards Ecstacy. Awesome bringing in Sarah McLachlan.

8. cdollaz - Even though I don't care for Rush, the rest of cdollaz's picks made up for it. Boy and London Calling stole the race.

9. Vryce - Tough choice.. Honestly I won't make up a justification... Everyone votes for themself.. I did like auto's list though.

10. mano365 - Queen and Zep.

11. whaaat - Zep II and Carole King sealed the choice for this race.

12. Damfino - Abbey Road. Classic album with a memorable cover that everyone seems to know.

13. The Bus - Tough choice. Both had Zep, but cleaver had a bit of rap on his list that isn't my taste in music. And Zep IV is a classic.

14. maxfisher - Achtung Baby was my first time seeing U2 live. Awesome album and concert. Mix in some Floyd and you've got my pick.

15. Mordred - Mordred had Public Enemy which I don't care for.. But with a strong 1..2..3 punch from Jackson, Metallica and AC/DC... knockout..

16. Fandango - Both had a good Aphex Twin pick. But with Vespertine and Dookie, my nod went to Fandango.

I would have picked:

Morphine: Cure for Pain
Beck: Sea Change

I like Mars Volta but they haven't recorded a great album yet.

I loved your Faint, DCD, Miles Davis & Cash picks.
I was thinking my REM pick wouldn't be as popular as murmer. I chose AFTP because it was the first record I ever bought. I played the tape until it just didn't sound right. My Morphine pick was tough as well. I went with what I thought most people would have heard. And I have never heard Sea Change, and Odely was choosen so I went with my next favorite Beck record.

BTW - you should extend the voting, if for no other reason than I am loosing.

Cure for Pain is an absolute classic. I'd still pick One Foot in the Grave as the best Beck record, but I don't think anyone's heard of it.

One Foot in the Grave is a great record. I prefer it to Mutations.

For a second I thought I would be really ballsy and pick STEREOPATHETIC SOULMANURE, but I chickened out. "Ozzy, you're the man"

Auto: do you have the votes per each person? I want to see how badly I got blown out. Also, two people edited their post. Perhaps make it clearer next time you can't edit but still count these?
