Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!

4.4.07

Choose that album!

Writing briefly about Achtung Baby yesterday reminded me that Spin magazine put it on the top 100 albums of the past twenty years but not The Joshua Tree, which is about as wrong as you can get. With that in mind, choose the correct album! You may be wrong, you may be right, but that's what competition is all about!

The Beatles: (a) Revolver or (b) The White Album?

The Who: (a) Who's Next or (b) Quadrophenia?

Led Zeppelin: (a) Physical Graffiti or (b) IV?

Pink Floyd: (a) Dark Side of the Moon or (b) Wish You Were Here?

U2: (a) The Joshua Tree or (b) Achtung Baby?

Van Halen: (a) I or (b) 1984?

Nirvana: (a) Nevermind or (b) In Utero?

Pearl Jam: (a) Ten or (b) Vs.?

PJ Harvey: (a) Rid of Me or (b) To Bring You My Love?

Jane's Addiction: (a) Nothing's Shocking or (b) Ritual de lo Habitual?

Prince: (a) Purple Rain or (b) Sign "O" the Times?

Beck: (a) Odelay or (b) Sea Change?

James: (a) Seven or (b) Laid?

Jimi Hendrix: (a) Are You Experienced? or (b) Axis: Bold as Love?

Public Enemy: (a) It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back or (b) Fear of a Black Planet?

The Pogues: (a) Rum, Sodomy and the Lash or (b) If I Should Fall From Grace with God?

Beastie Boys: (a) Licensed to Ill or (b) Paul's Boutique?

ABBA: (a) Everything they've ever released or (b) Nothing they've ever released?

Okay, that last one was a bit of a trick question. I also know I gave no criteria for picking. You should know! Answer in the comments! Your life could depend on it!¹

¹But probably doesn't.

I can see room for people of goodwill to disagree on most of these (even if they are wrong to choose anything other than Paul's Boutique, Who's Next, Physical Graffiti and It Takes a Nation of Millions ...)

But would anyone really choose Axis: Bold as Love - as an album?

Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti

Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here?

U2: The Joshua Tree

Van Halen: I

Nirvana: Nevermind

Pearl Jam: Who cares?

PJ Harvey: Who cares?

Jane's Addiction: Nothing's Shocking

Beck: Whole lot of not caring here.

James: Who cares?

Jimi Hendrix: Are You Experienced?

Public Enemy: It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back

I almost certainly have answered "wrong" on several questions, especially the ABBA one. But what's wrong for you ain't wrong for me.

Sigh. Tom and Nik, how can you live without loving the wonderfulness that is ABBA? I feel nothing but pity for you!

You have some tough choices there. I will just select a few:

Revolver, it really broke new ground;

Who's Next is just awesome;

I prefer Achtung;

Are You Experienced also broke new ground.
