Re: AMF Favorite Albums of All-Time -- RESULTS

I have only recently begun to the brilliance of Pet Sounds. When I submitted my list I had it around #200, but if I was making my list today it probably would have been in my top 100. Definitely surprising to see it fall outside of the top 5 (though, given what is left you can't really complain...)

Re: AMF Favorite Albums of All-Time -- Prediction Thread

If I had to guess which five will fail to make the top 10, I would go with Highway 61 (given the fall of all Dylan's albums :( ), one of the four Beatles albums (hopefully The White Album, but it could definitely be Abbey Road), Born to Run, The Dark Side of the Moon, and maybe London Calling?
