That is a kick-butt set of albums. I will say this though- I love Side 1 of Foxtrot but I honestly think that the live version of "Supper's Ready" from Seconds Out utterly p0wns the Foxtrot version, and that includes Phil singing it. Just my opinion :P

I'd like to think so -but I know I left out a few. Just so hard to narrow down though. And I keep buying more music, still looking for more, just never ending.
