not a single one that I voted for is up there
dm.lj (I write songs--updated 10/8/09)
This list confirmed what I suspected - I'm not representative for the consensus music taste of the SDUGF. I've got two from my favorite list finding their way to the top 100: Dark Side of the Moon, and And Justice for All.
but no superunknown?! you people should be ashamed of yourselves
Plus, I really believe that kids can adopt their parents' music taste much easier than the case for the opposite direction. Case in point, I voted for DSOTM as my #4 favorite, as I believe a lot of other youngsters did as well. My dad would never embrace Ghost Reveries.
Plus II, I don't remember last time there was a survey over the members' ages here, but I think the bell-curve was skewed towards the ol' geezers.
The results support my contention that 1971 was the best year for rock music, with eight albums showing in the top 100. The next closest years were 1973, 1975, 1976 and 1977, each with five album appearances. The data I gathered is hardly a representative sample, but I'm sticking to my guns just the same.

"no seymour - no tone ... know seymour - know tone!"
Is it not the glory of the people of America that, whilst they have paid a decent regard to the opinions of former times and other nations, they have not suffered a blind veneration for antiquity, for custom, or for names, to overrule the suggestions of their own good sense, the knowledge of their own situation, and the lessons of their own experience?" - James Madison - Federalist #14
