It’s very possible! I don’t even know how you’d measure that. The Winstons might end up on top because of the Amen Break. Depending on your definition of a band (standalone vs. backing unit), the J.B.s may have a case as well.

Your head canon means as much as any of these lists, which is why, though I had Parade ranked low relative to an amorphous consensus, I am stoked that you’re digging it.

I was going for monkeyridinghorse’s interpretation. That was an ambiguous line; sorry for the confusion. The man was phenomenal.

It means that, in regards to typing “sexiest,” I crapped the bed.

Oof. Yeah, I do. No, it didn’t. Yes, I have. Dozens of times. And thanks for the reminder, btw, my screen is gross.

In this scenario, Pink Floyd didn’t release five albums and Animals is at 6.

I’ll say it here: I think every LP they’ve released is worth owning, and I don’t normally feel that way about deep-catalog bands. I’ve got the same bias as you: that mid-’90s lineup could do so much damage. As a drummer, Drozd has an incredible feel, and Jones gave the band so many tone options. I’m a sucker for the twangy stuff, too. Yoshimi was a letdown for me after Bulletin (which, if I remember correctly, I bought at Borders. Ouch), but I’ve grown to love the moodier stuff on it. Believe me, I know putting it that low looks off. It’s the fave Lips album for a lot of my friends.

May we not be self-aware, I ask you?

1. Dark Side of the Moon
2. The Piper at the Gates of Dawn
3. Wish You Were Here
4. A Saucerful of Secrets
5. Meddle

In this scenario, The Wall is Yoshimi.

I should’ve typed “Ivins,” screwed up. Good catch.

Absolutely silly. There’s not a bad one in the bunch. And yeah, I was surprised at where AHWT ended up.

Also, I hear the sun of “Around the Sun” fame is due to burn out.
