This is soooooo hard to pinpoint, so I'll narrow it down to two or three in each decade-and that's EXTREMELY difficult. 70's=YES-GFTO/Tormato/TFTO, Kansas-Leftoverture/Genesis-TLLDOB.80's=Steve Taylor-Meltdown/on the fritz,Whiteheart-Freedom/Peter Gabriel-SO.90's=Dream Theater-Images and Words/YES-The Ladder. 2000's=Spock's Beard-V,Glass Hammer-Lex Rex/Shadowlands,Echolyn-Suffocating the Bloom/Neal Morse-Testimony/One/?,Flower Kings-Stardust We Are,Transatlantic-Bridge Across Forever,Dream Theater-Scenes of A Memory. and I'm leaving out SOOOO many. Believe it or not out of all of those-Tormato and Leftoverture are probably at the TOP!!!

I'm with you, Moooose--there's so much new music to be had nowadays, mostly from stuff I record off Net radio stations, that any album that wins my own most-listened-to award is gonna be one that I've had since the 80s, when I was poor and couldn't afford to buy a lot of music. Going by that standard, my nominees would be Toto's "Isolation," Supertramp's "Breakfast In America," the Steve Morse Band's "Stand Up," Rush's "Permanent Waves," and Kansas' "Vinyl Confessions."

Eldorado

Post by soulfreq » Wed Jun 07, 2006 9:52 am

Eldorado is great! ELO is in my top 5 groups for sure, Out of the Blue just wins out because it was my FIRST album I bought with my own money (before that my parents bought me Kiss Alive! and Hotter than Hell which I loved at the time and detest now).

Lex Rex got a HUGE amount of airplay in my house...me and two of my sons LOVE it (I heard it wafting from the basement room of my son just this weekend). Also, Lex is the perfect driving CD when I commute to one of the stores I manage (1 hour drive).

My most listened to Glass Hammer song? Chronos Deliverer (live version).

Also, I have to add to this list Spock's Beard Snow, and Neal Morse Testimony!

I like New World Record myself :D But Eldorado and Out of the Blue have great stuff on them. I'd want to have all three.

This is a trick question!

I would have to say that the entire RUSH catalogue has probably had equal spin, but there's more!

Star One ~ Space Metal
Glass Hammer ~ The Inconsolable Secret
Pain of Salvation ~ Be
Porcupine Tree ~ Deadwing and In Absentia
Neal Morse ~ One
Spcok's Beard ~ Snow
Moby ~ Play

Man there are so many!
