Shit, I have listened to and own most of these already. What an excellent round.

Not too keen on Arcade Fire, though. Sorry, Rawlinson.

I already knew you wouldn't be, you mentioned it somewhere before. I think the only one I'm not much of a fan of is Led Zep, although while I do like the others, they're often not my favourite work from that artist.

There's a few artists here that I have been told I should like many times and never quite got, so this is going to be interesting. I love love love Fever To Tell though, and thought about nominating it myself.

The only ones I've listened to in full are my nom and Led Zep III, which is damn good but I prefer IV. Of the others, I've always got time for Prince, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are decent and Scenes From The Suburbs was a massively underwhelming short, so I doubt I'll enjoy Arcade Fire. The others are unknowns to me.

I think Yo La Tengo was on that mix CD I sent you a few months back.

So they were. After giving a track another spin, I remembered I wasn't a fan. Hopefully I'll enjoy the album though.

Have heard all of these except for that particular Yo La Tengo album, though I've got a few other ones and like them so I'm not worried about disliking it. I'll write some more in-depth opinions on them later if I get the time to, because I really like some of them particularly. Good round chaps.

also - VOTE IN THE ALBUMS POLL IN MY SIG PLS THNX

Not a fan of Arcade Fire or Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Don't hate, but don't particularly care for The Pixies. Though I've honestly never listened to more than one of their songs in a row.

I always have time for Wilco and Prince.

I know of, but not particularly familiar with Joni Mitchell and Yo La Tengo.

I enjoyed The Pixies and Yeah Yeah Yeahs albums way more than i anticipated. it was a pleasant surprise. I still have 5 albums to go though. What should I expect from the Yo La Tengo album?

Glad to hear you liked the YYYs. I'm going to give the Yo La Tengo a listen tonight myself, my last one before I post some ramblings on each nom.

Rawlinson, I got your votes, thanks. Just a reminder for everyone else that the deadline is Monday and then we'll crack on with Round 2.

Arcade Fire - I LIke this album, but I find my urge to listen to Arcade Fire has diminished in recent years, It is a good album though

Joni - Arguably the best Joni album, just wonderful.

Led Zeppelin - Unfortunately this has always been the classic Zeppelin album I liked the least, never could put my finger on exactly why

Pixies - Not my pick but it should win, the album is just one of the greatest albums ever made. One of my all time gig highlights is seeing them performing this album in full.

Prince - Probably the best Prince album, and who doesn't love Prince, he's the one Jehovah I would invite into my house.

Wilco - I love most Wilco albums and this is probably my favourite, just a stunning album

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Again, an amazing album, had this on in the shop the other week and it was a joy to hear it again.

Yo La Tengo - This is the one Yo La Tengo album I have heard that I never really liked. Again, I'm not sure why, I think it's just a little long and all kind of moulds into one for me. I love Yo La Tengo usually, but this album always stood out as weak for me.

Sorry, just seen this. Rawlinson guessed correctly - Led Zep and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Putting the votes in order of preference was quite tough for the most part. Arcade Fire was the only one I couldn't fully get behind.

EDIT - I also see that the Hall of Fame thread hasn't been updated in almost two years. Just sayin'...

Everyone loves Prince!

He's one of the few people to have a parody twitter account that you could feasibly believe is him

Although if Rhubarb's voting record is any way to judge, we shall be moving on without him tomorrow and Prince will be disqualified. Which would almost be worth it to punish you for your remarks.
