I'd recommend any one of R. Stevie Moore's albums. Start with Phonography.

Thanks! Keep 'em coming.

Personal favourite on Taking Tiger Mountain? For me it would have to be The Great Pretender, in my opinion a serious contender for greatest short track of the 70s. To me it seems like what would happen if you combined the Residents with Nine Inch Nails.

Yes, that's a great one. Possibly my favorite as well!

Very good list. If you haven't already heard "Odessey & Oracle" by The Zombies, check it out. It's a really fine 60's Pop Rock album, definitely better than both Sgt. Pepper and Pet Sounds.

Thanks, I have heard it a bunch of times but its been about 10 years -- it should probably be on here, but would have to re-listen to it first

The Velvet Underground? The Beatles? The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society?

Maybe the Kinks. There's many 7's to add. This isn't really a list I focus on filling out as there are few 7.5+ albums. I just sort of add to it on the side from time to time.
