There's some good stuff on Some Girls, also Tatoo You. Cut out the crap, squash the decent material together, and you've got an acceptable album. The rest of the post-EXILE Stones is pretty much useless. And before Aftermath (which has a lot of dross), they didn't make a decent LP. All told, they have about 4 or 5 good albums. That averages out to one good record for every decade.

I gave EandtheB's Crocodile, Porcupine and Ocean a spin again last night. I found myself skipping a lot, but really liking the songs I didn't skip. I insist: a best-of band, and a very good one. (Though they are very silly. "C-c-cucumber, c-c-c-colliflower...")

Also listened to Cocteau Twins' Treasure. First side is great, second side wanes. I'll take a best-of over this proper album.

And that's the point. Would you take a proper album over a compilation? If yes, then the artist in question doesn't belong in this thread. If no, throw the name in the ring.

Lou Reed! I can't believe I didn't think of this. Some okay albums, but no masterpiece. A compilation artist for sure.
