    Default The Definitive 200 Albums

    ...brought to you by the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Check it out at http://definitive200.com/index.html. It's a pretty decent list, I guess. There may or may not be any Van Halen on there. OK, they're on there (you find it yourself).

    Check out the list and post:
    1. How many of these you currently own?
    2. How many of these have you owned before but no longer own? (maybe you traded them in for cash/credit, maybe you had the tape but never bought the CD, it was stolen, etc.)
    3. How many of these do you have a copy of but not the actual album? (got it from a friend, got it from the library, downloaded off the Net, etc)

    I have exactly 50. I would have 51 if I hadn't "traded" Bat Out Of Hell (probably for a Led Zeppelin album) in the late '70s or early '80s. I have also had several others on the list that have been in my house at one time or other (and may still be) as property of my wife or oldest son. I have hard copies of all 50, although my copy of Blood Sugar Sex Magic was given to me by a guy I used to work with. Interesting I had 12 on the first page, and the number got smaller for each subsequent page until the last when it went up from 1 on page 7 to 3 on page 8!

    Most of the 12 albums that I used to own but no longer have were early Van Halen and early AC/DC albums that I had on vinyl. My parents sold them when they had a yard sale after I went away to college!! My only vinyl album that did not sell was my Kiss Destroyer album. I've still got it today.

    The "Titanic" Soundtrack is on there
    Maybe the RNRHOF should define "definitive".

    I'm more concerned by the number of crap/shit hop albums on there. Still don't understand how a piece of shit like Eminem gets put on any kind of pedestal.

    The one Tool album that shouldn't be on this list is the only one on the list. Rush 2112 is on there but no Moving Pictures.

    i think having Big Willie Style by Will Smith on any best of list makes credibility go down the shitter.

    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    A lot of really crappy selections on that list. What is any soundtrack doing on a definitive albums list?

    I can't believe that Live at Leeds by The Who was left off of the list.

    How the heck did the Dixie Chicks get three albums in the "Definitive 200"?

    Another list. Always protect the list. Who made this list? Could I make a list? Let's say hypothetically I were too make a list?

    I like saying list. List list list list, list list list list, list list list, list list list list list.
