Yeah, that solo is a masterclass in understated accomplishment. An epic 'humble-brag' if you will. Everything is impeccably timed and accented without going over the top.

I was only nine when it was released, and first saw the record at my friend's house where his teenage sister had it. I remember the jacket looked scary and awful to me. But I picked it up myself a few years later and yes, the themes certainly stoked my already burgeoning adolescent appetite to fight the powers that be.

I spent years trying to work out how to get that clean sustain on a strat, only to eventually discover it was studio compression and he played it on a Les Paul!
If I go insane will you still let me join in with the game?

Talking Heads 'Fear Of Music'
Joni Michell 'Mingus'
Gang Of Four 'Entertainment'
Ry Cooder 'Bop Till You Drop'
Undertones 'Undertones'
Wire '154'
The Fall 'Live at the Witch Trials'
Van Morrison 'Into The Music'
Tough call, however I have to nominate Joni's beautiful album 'Mingus', yes it is a acquired taste that requires some listening. Even though it's a change of direction to Mitchell's earlier works I reckon it's up there with 'Blue' 'Court & Spark' & 'Ladies Of The Canyon'

I know 'Mingus' won't achieve many votes but I love this album.

Lets face it there is only one winner in this poll by a street I suspect, hope my nomination avoids the wooden spoon ;-) my four points maybe just enough :lol:

Probably the lowest I've ranked my own nomination but there were so many great picks in this year

5: Joy Division
4: Clash
3: Pink Floyd
2: Madness
1: Specials

Not what you expected 64 - LC not even in the top 5 of 4 lots `(out of 6) of the votes to date

Nothing a shoe in for any year, maybe with the odd exception, on this thread (which is good`), given the differing musical tastes of voters

Cant believe I'd left The Clash out from top 5.
Error really ! Really & deservedly need to be in there ...if I would or may be able I'd at least swap them for no.5 ...instead of ( Madness ).
