    I have a theory...Many albums are good...some great...BUT, COOL is an intangible that is hard to spot...

    A cool album would be Led Zep 2 or maybe a VERY early REM disc...Most James Brown would qualify here...

    Good, but not quite cool would be Page/Plant 'No Quarter' or Springsteen's 'Ghost of Tom Joad' or 'Achtung Baby' by U2...

    What makes an album cool...a real classic?

    My first DISqualifying point(sorry to you younger kids) would be that there has not been an album with real cool that was not FIRST released on vinyl...cool albums stopped around 1985, imo...

    Does this make any discernible sense?

    Exile on Main Street.

    It's an album which has a 'vibe', you get the feeling of being in the room with them, and how they were all living in the same place. Like the aftermath of a party (which I'm sure it was)

    Get the same feel from "Push Comes To Shove"
    It'll all end in beers...

    I would say the lyrical content has a large bearing on how cool something is. For example, any album that's overtly political wouldn't be "cool" in my opinion. Doesn't mean it isn't good, it's just not cool. Whereas Women and Children First would most definitely be considered cool, with it's upbeat lyrical content and cocky swagger.

    Well, Pearl Jams Vitalogy was released on vinyl first so I guess that makes it cooool.

    and in the words of eddie vedder. Spin! Spin! Spin the black circle.
