    *list includes every album that a) finished in the top 3 in one of grumbles' polls (edit: just remembered CiG did a couple too, added those in), b) got 5 or more votes and c) has more than 5 tracks. feel free to suggest something that doesn't fit into these parameters (i.e. i think the two major king crimson albums got more votes than basically anything else, but they only have 5 songs each), twas just an arbitrary way of narrowing it down.

    A few of the albums in your list do not meet this criteria. WYWH, Mirage, Close to the Edge, off the top of my head.

    anyway I'll vote for all of these:

    blue oyster cult - secret treaties
    captain beyond - s/t
    cocteau twins - treasure
    leonard cohen - songs of love and hate
    the doors - s/t
    the doors - strange days
    king crimson - discipline
    led zeppelin - houses of the holy
    led zeppelin - iv
    nirvana - in utero
    queens of the stone age - songs for the deaf
    rush - a farewell to kings
    wishbone ash - argus

    If it potentially gets you more overlap with everyone else's lists, I'd suggest listing all the ones you'd definitely participate in.

    From what you listed:
    cocteau twins - treasure
    dead can dance - aion
    gza - liquid swords
    the jimi hendrix experience - are you experienced?
    king crimson - any of them
    led zeppelin - Any of them
    pink floyd - any of them
    rush - any of them
    siouxsie and the banshees - juju
    the smashing pumpkins - mellon collie and the infinite sadness
    swans - filth
    wu tang clan - enter the wu tang (36 chambers)

    I don’t agree with the “more than 5 tracks” rule, as if an album has that few tacks and still made the list, all or most of the songs probably have their followers. I think we did King Crimson’s Red and that would make a great song survivor.

    i did specifically say it's not a rule, if people wanna do the king crimson albums or w/e that's cool with me. i just wanted to avoid listing like 100 albums, and wanted to rule out stuff like the 2 or 3 track jazz records
