baber, Peart is all about Rand, so I'm sure it's that one despite me not being entirely sure what you're saying.

Also, uh, I searched a bit and found this...
Neil Peart wrote:
I was working on an entirely different thing when I saw a cartoon picture of these trees carrying on like fools. I thought, "What if trees acted like people?" So I saw it as a cartoon really, and wrote it that way. I think that's the image that it conjures up to a listener or a reader. A very simple statement.


And I found some fans arguing about its meaning. TBH I never considered that the "shade" would be taken negatively. I thought that was meant as, like, the benefit of being a maple. The song does almost seem to be claiming that standing up against injustice is futile...? I can only imagine that aspect is meant as a wry statement and not a suggestion to just give up.

am i ignoring anything that actually stands a chance of ending up on the list? from what i understand rush has maybe 2 positive votes and like 8 negatives, so there's no chance it will end up on the final list. But maybe I'll list it as tabb's most despised band?

at this point i'm only adding albums to the list if they have at least 2 votes (including the first one). or if i want to draw special attention to them, I guess.

why hasn't anyone suggested william shatner's album yet

Yeah, it's important to note that my spiel was not an effort to get Rush included on the list, but an effort to communicate how peeved I am at Boorishly.

They already made the top of a much more important list imo

(which probably could have clued me in that this would happen)

Unfortunately you're the guy who thinks the Beatles were the most important thing to happen ever on Earth in the past forty years (more important than the fall of communism or rise of computers, among many other things) so it's just hard for me to take your peevishness seriously.

You're misremembering that conversation. It was my roommate who thought the Beatles were more important than the internet, which I disagreed with.

When I mentioned that here, you were all, "What about the Cold War?"
And I was like, "Uh, what about it?"
I still don't really get why it's so all-fired important, but this is probably not the place to discuss it.

Actually I interpreted that wrong to be the most important songs of each Beatle's solo career so you can have that thread

Has

Philip Glass - Glassworks

been suggested? I can't think of a more influential classical album. Or a better one, really, at least in terms of emotional manipulation.

That post made me look at the classical recordings I have which could be called 'albums' and I noticed that there aren't many which fit the category (i'm limiting it to first recordings with collaborations with the composer, and most composers don't write music with the primary aim of releasing an album per se) and also that there aren't very that I am a huge fan of

But I am going to nominate
Terry Riley: In C (if we're going to talk about 'influential' classical 'albums' this is where you should look.)
Arvo Pärt: Tabula Rasa, Spiegel Im Spiegel
Henryk Górecki: Symphony No 3 (this doesn't even fit the criteria I outlined above, but the fact that the famous london sinfonietta/dawn upshaw 1992 recording broke the mainstream top 10 allows it to qualify in my opinion)
John Adams: Harmonielehre

Unrelated:
John Coltrane: A Love Supreme

I think it would probably be fair to nominate longer classical pieces without worrying about the specific recording.

+1 Górecki: Symphony No 3

also whatever that Massive Attack was, they're all good, unless I already +'d it.

add

The Blues Brothers soundtrack (unless someone can point me at a better example of Cab Calloway, ie one where he isn't a 1930's rapper-equivalent)

Mr Scruff: Keep it Unreal

Suzanne Vega: Nine Objects of Desire

+1

Arvo Pärt: Tabula Rasa
John Adams: Harmonielehre

Not adding any other classical albums. I thought about the Bernstein Stavinsky Sampler I see all the time or the Emerson Shostakovich String Quartets, but I say no for some arbitrary reason. I'll +1 the ones I really like.

The dearth of classical Recordings that can be called albums was a big reason for Glassworks going there, but seriously, Minimalism rules, and Glassworks is great example why. It's not the best Minimalist album (I would go with Reich's Bang on a Can or maybe something else by Adams for that or maybe NO ALBUM AT ALL), and it doesn't have any indie cred, but it's a great thesis.

There's very little music I dislike, though, so it's hard for me to tell simple good from bad.

Updated through me writing this. Note that the the list has been sorted by number of votes. We are at over 100 albums, but I've kept albums with a score of +1 if more than one person has voted on them (The Who's Tommy, for instance, had positive and negative votes giving it a total of 1 positive).

It looks like this process is kind of dying down, but maybe people will vote more based on what's on the list and what has been nominated. Any nomination counts as 1 positive vote so all it would take to knock The Who's tommy off the list is someone else +1ing Clipse, or whatever.
