That Piano break on Stevie Nix is immense and perfect right there

The only band ever for me to start with 4 10/10 albums ...then they added a 5th..

Tubular Bells, Different Class and Dare also crept into my thinking 64, but for my nomination I'm going with the rip-snorting stonker of a classic (in every sense) album that is:

Black Sabbath - Paranoid

I'll nominate the first LP I bought because I couldn't afford them until I started my first job in 1970. Funny how times have change as kids at school have apple phones & they are more likely to purchase a car when they are first employed. I still wouldn't swop my childhood/adolescent years for anyone even though we had next to nothing materialistic-wise :-D

Absolutely love the 2 you recommended plus the Night On The Sun ep Strangers To Ourselves is excellent too. The rest have more highs than lows but not in the same class as those.

Premiership/Championship Poll rules

At the beginning of the competition each player nominates one album

Advisable to nominate classic album or ones you think may do well unless you wish your choice to end up bottom of either league

So if there are fourteen albums in each league each album has a thirteen matches

Each player would choose their winner of each match

Each round of matches to last for one week only so we don't have the competition dragging on

Two points for a win, one for a draw

At the end of the competition which should last about six months we would have a promotion/relegation situation.

Are you up for the long haul CW,there are 13 rounds of matches, the competition means you voting on a regular weekly/maybe two weeks basis ??
