Solid Gold is awesome though. I often think of it as more industrial sounding than the debut, kind of in the same way that Closer is moreso than Unknown Pleasures. Not as in "industrial music," but more the mood or driving pulse.

Either way, it's a rad as hell album. I like it a lot.

Addendum: This category is too hard.
I think I prefer SG to E! because I like the drums more and it's less “rock” and more idiosyncratic. Very much a 1 and 1a thing, but I for significance and impact, it has to be E!
Endut! Hoch Hech!

Rum, Sodomy - The Pogues
GEER
A Quick One - The Who
Small Faces - Small Faces (Immediate version)
SLF - Nobody's Heroes (.Side two is weak in parts but side one plays like a "best of")
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

No order other than how they emerged from my brain.

PiL - Metal Box
Gang of Four - Solid Gold
Idlewild - 100 Broken Windows
Pixies - Doolittle
Wire - Chairs Missing
Blimey, Solid Gold must be good if it is much better than Entertainment. I'd better give it a listen.
Wait, do these have to be better than the first album or just really fucking good second albums? I went with the latter assumption. All my picks still work, tho the Go4 is a bit of a stretch.

Edit: Why is the quoting fucked up?
I thought it was the former, but not to worry either way, seems like I have a new album to explore.

SG is my favourite — love the weirdo noise groove. What We All Want is probably my favourite Go4 song.

You're banned from being banned for a year then.

I agree with this.
