I went down to the demonstration to get my fair share of abuse, goin’ as much with the river as not:

11 Pink Floyd The Dark Side of the Moon 1973 14

I can’t tell you how I feel, but this wheel’s on fire:

GvZ:

15. (18) Panda Bear – Person Pitch (2007)
14. (19) Van Morrison – Astral Weeks (1968)
13. (17) Led Zeppelin – Physical Graffiti (1975)
12. (41) Pink Floyd – The Dark Side of the Moon (1973)

11. (15) Santana – Abraxas (1970)
“The melodies just know what I need, but the rhythm knows what I want.”

RKH:

15. (9) Paul Simon – Graceland (1986)
14. (11) Pink Floyd – The Dark Side of the Moon (1973)
13. (37) The Beatles – Rubber Soul (1965)
12. (*) Bob Dylan – Highway 61 Revisited (1965)

11. (8) Radiohead – In Rainbows (2007)
“On 10 october 2007 we witnessed the end of an era.”

Although not everybody seems to get the cryptical goal of our list, to be sure that you have listened to a certain 50 albums before you buy a house, we continue today with the upper half of the list. Remarkably, the first part of this half is totally dominated by the year 1970, scoring not less than 5/10. Even more remarkable is that Cat Stevens is represented by two different albums from that same year, Tea for the Tillerman (RKH #25) and Mona Bone Jakon (GvZ #23). Also Radiohead is represented by two different albums, both being the second album from the band in each list till now, after OK Computer:

RKH:

21. The Beatles – Rubber Soul(1965)
22. Radiohead – In Rainbows (2007)
23. CSNY – Déjà Vu (1970)
24. John Lennon – Plastic Ono Band (1970)
25. Cat Stevens – Tea for the Tillerman (1970)

GvZ:

21. Radiohead – Kid A (2000)
22. Fleetwood Mac – Bare Trees (1972)
23. Cat Stevens – Mona Bone Jakon (1970)
24. Santana – Abraxas (1970)
25. Cream – Disraeli Gears (1967)

RKH also delivers his second Beatles album with the magnificent Rubber Soul, the reincarnation of the Fab Four. Déjà-Vu and Plastic Ono Band are both albums we found earlier in GvZ’s list at #39 and #44 respectively. In that list Abraxas was earlier found at RKH on #34, and together with Disraeli Gears (added to the 1967 poll), they form an excellent couple of albums to cross the Greek mountains, whether or not you’re thinking about buying a house. More epic vinyl next time.
