FUCK OFF!
Sure they did a hell of a lot of great singles, but listen to Sheer Heart Attack, News Of The World, A Night At The Opera and The Game then tell me that their best stuff is their singles.

weezer besides the blue album which is decent, though i didn't care for it at the time. even their new albums have one or two gems.

I agree. I'm not a particular stones fan aside from Sticky Fingers, but they are a solidly album band for sure!

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.

Beyond "Singles Going Steady" what more do you need from The Buzzcocks?

How about The Germs?

Iggy Pop's non-Stooges output?

How about Lush?

The Psychedelic Furs?

I think here´s mentioned many great bands who have great albums: Siouxsie and the Banshees (Kaleidoscope, Juju, a Kiss in the dreamhouse), Creedence (all of their albums except Mardi Gras), New Order (Brotherhood & Technique), the Who (the Who Sell Out, Who´s next, Tommy, Quadrophenia) Lou Reed (transformer, Berlin) & Santana (their three first albums). If you disagree I think you should at least listen those albums first.

Maybe Abba didn´t have any great original album, but at least Waterloo has some much more interesting songs than those hits everybody have heard 1000 times.

About the Stones I think also Tattoo You, Steel Wheels, Voodoo Lounge & Bridges to Babylon are great albums. Of course not as great as Beggars, Let it Bleed etc. but very great comparing many albums that has come in same time.

If a Royal Trux compilation pops up, I'll look at it.
Yo Se was great on Veterans of Disaster, and there are 2 songs above the rest on their 2 self-titled.

Holly Golightly.
