    WC's Fave Five Albums - 1979




    Another doozy of a year where it'll be very difficult to see which albums make it.

    Acceptable Albums: Studio/Live/Soundtracks

    Not Acceptable Albums: Compilations/Greatest Hits

    Any questions please send me a message...Thanks for sending your list.

    You'll have until Saturday, May 18th to get them in.

    Really tough year. I feel like I'm going to be leaving off a few ultra popular choices due to knowing they'll get some love.

    Vote for the ones that are truly your favorite ones...I think that's what 2002 proved...we had very low point totals, because there were so many individual albums voted for. I don't vote what I think is best or most popular...just my favorite.

    This was an easy one for me as the five I've listed are the only 5 I've listened to all the way through.

    feels like a bit of a weak year. a couple cult hits but most of the albums put out by long-standing artists were pretty middle-of-the-pack. I imagine my #1 will be over #1 again though

    All lists must be submitted by tomorrow, so if you're waiting to get one in, now would be a good time. Considerably less lists than what we've been getting, but still a good turnout. Might be able to finish the countdown before the 3 day weekend here in the States coming up.

    Re: WC's Fave Five Albums - 1979

    Let's get the countdown started with the 10 Pointers:


    The Soundhose Tapes - Iron Maiden (Creeping Death #5)



    Spoiler:




    Live Killers - Queen (Regal or Riot #5)



    Spoiler:




    Torfrockball Im Huuhnerstall - Torfrock (Baloocha #5)



    Spoiler:




    Lovehunter - Whitesnake (Ms Flock #5)



    Spoiler:




    Drums and Wires - XTC (Fuji Vice #5)



    Spoiler:




    Prince - Prince (Jimmy King #5)



    Spoiler:




    Discovery - ELO (Mikk #5)



    Spoiler:




    Replicas - Tubeway Army (Mister Miracle #5)



    Spoiler:



    Edit: Forgot to talk about these albums...(don't have children)

    Paul Di'Anno fronting a very different Iron Maiden, but still good stuff. Di'Anno was not your typical metal singer, had a more punkish growl. I like Di'Anno as Maiden's vocalist, but I don't think they would've gone on to see the heights they did without Bruce. For me the key to Maiden was when Adrian joined, but still check out Di'Anno's Maiden...good stuff. Live Queen is always a great thing. Torfrock pops up again and it makes me laugh, because I haven't a clue to what they're singing about, but it's not bad. Early Whitesnake that isn't bad, just a little different from what you may be used to by them. Coverdale has always had the pipes, Moody and Marsden aren't a bad guitar duo, but everyone except Coverdale and John Lord has that "local cover band" look to them. XTC is such an interesting group, it's a shame that Andy Partridge suffers from stage fright so they never tour. Love ELO, always thought Bev Bevan was an underrated drummer...love this version with Kelly on bass and Jeff Lynne writing classic after classic. Tubeway Army is known mainly for singer Gary Numan, who'd release a solo album that had the hit "Cars" later this year, but the band basically played on it. Replicas is a great album. Forgot Prince...I think this was the first record I heard from Prince...great stuff to come for a long time.

    Good start to the list, so many good live albums this year too.

    Had no idea that Gary Numan was with the Tubeway Army, will need to investigate a bit more
