    Hey, so, does anyone feel like chatting music? Sometimes I've had fun setting up head to heads - choose an artist and two of their albums etc

    So, an 'easy' one to start perhaps - any thoughts on which album is stronger/your fav:

    Black Sabbath

    Paranoid VS Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

    Or maybe The Beatles?

    Abbey Road VS The Beatles (White Album)

    Neither and neither.

    The best Sabbath album is "The Mob Rules" because the title track is their best song imho (even if the best version, from the movie "Heavy Metal," is an alternate take).

    The best Beatles album is Revolver.

    Great choice - maybe I should have narrow it down to Ozzy-era? But LOVE Dio, possibly more - and Mob Rules, awesome! What did you think of Dehumanizer? Folks seem to hate it a bit, but I love it too.

    Nice - my fav is probably Help! but Abbey Road is close, it has Something - one of George's best songs I reckon

    If only they'd managed to stay together for another album, it could have been amazing. Tiny head to head?

    Computer God vs TV Crimes

    IV v. Door is really Page v. Jones.
    Animals v. The Wall is like a dog v. The Berlin Wall.

    Woah, I don't think I can decide between some of them! :)

    Animals I probably listen to more often than The Wall, but, The Wall is 'The Wall' you know? The Zep match up is interesting too. Fool in the Rain is one of my favourite songs of theirs, but I think IV is the more consistent album.

    Page v Jones, yeah - spot on.

    Ok, with Animals - what about a breakdown - for instance, say 'Dogs' vs 'Comfortably Numb'?

    I like Animals better than the wall as well, and Dogs is far superior to Comfortably Numb :)

    I love Dogs! I think that's my favorite song of any that's over 15 minutes long. It's instrumental more often than lyrical, but still, the verses don't repeat and every part of the song is different than the last. Lyrics go a long way with me.

    I did have a very strange dream while listening to The Wall in my sleep. The lyrics of Comfortably Numb were spoken. I was with a doctor, but somehow I ended up being dragged into a limo. When replying to the doctor, I sang the "I have become comfortably numb" part with my arms outstretched. The doctor and others with him gave me this what-an-***hole look, and the dream ended with a close up of my own sheepish, awkward expression. The freaky part was months later, when someone showed me The Wall movie, and the Comfortably Numb part had a scene that was strikingly similar to my dream.

    Awesome dream - I wonder if any doctors have had similar dreams - and Pink Floyd lurks in the nightmares?

    Dogs is amazing, huh? Some great passages - and mostly Dave singing, which is a plus for me. 'Sheep' is a close second. Love that tranquil beginning and then...
