(Previous list was a mess beyond the 9.4 point, starting over again. Err, yeah, I'm annoying that way)

Interesting list. And at last an user, who don't think that the best album of all time only worth a 9,5/10.

Thank you :D

And I nearly thought that, but Highway 61 was so good, I couldn't rate it lower than 10.

Sweet list.

Fantastic list... and "White Light/White Heat" is rated higher than "& Nico" ! Awesome.

Thanks. VU & Nico has more variety while probably being more consistent too but I enjoy the thick, druggy sound of WL/WH very, very slightly more. They are just about tied.

Exactly ... The "thick druggy sound" makes every second of the album priceless.

Seeing The Faust Tapes on your list made me wonder why I always remember it as being kinda boring. Maybe I should re-listen to it right now.

[Plays the Faust Tapes. 15 minutes pass.]

Nope. It doesn't click. I hope something happens the next time around.

[Stops Faust Tapes. Plays "It's a rainy day, sunshine girl"]

Re: Faust Tapes.... It's kind of like an even more free-form version of the self-titled. I enjoy it. I swear this list is ridiculously outdated though. Faust Tapes probably isn't even a 9.0/10.

White Light/White Heat is now number one? Sweet!

Have you heard the 3-disc 45th Anniversary Deluxe Edition? It has lots of great stuff: the album in stereo and mono, a live set with with Cale, the instrumental version of The Gift, some recordings from the same period, and an alternate mix of I Heard Her Call My Name (the same take as the original) where Morrison, Cale and Tucker are much more audible than before.
