1. Ice Cube - Amerikkka's Most Wanted
over Erykah Badu - New Amerykah Part One
Simply much more entertained by "Amerikka's", though this is the best Badu I've heard.
2. Boredoms - Vision Creation Newsun
over Tom Waits - Alice
Close, but a case of "which one would I reach for first?"
3. Judas Priest - Sad Wings Of Destiny
over The D.O.C. - No One Can Do It Better
Hoped for more from the Priest
; this one hits me as slightly comical... still, gets the narrow victory over D.O.C. (favorite = "Tyrant").
4. The Verlaines - Bird Dog
over Thomas Newman - American Beauty
"Bird Dog" is my favorite album.
