Capt. Beefheart & His Magic Band - Strictly Personal...sometimes I think I'm the only one who likes this record at all let alone think it's better than "Safe As Milk." "Lick My Decals Off, Baby" is still far and above the best one period.
Zappa/Mothers - Absolutely Free...falling between "Freak Out!" and "We're Only In It For The Money," this one gets overlooked quite a bit I think, but I love it top to bottom.
Badfinger- No Dice...as i typed that one, I thought it actually belongs in that "2nd albums better than 1st" thread, but I think this thread is going to mutate into that one, so here it is.
Beachwood Sparks - Once We Were Trees...same as Badfinger, belongs in "2nd > 1st"...listened to it on acid once right before I moved to Denver to be with my girlfriend and it seemed to be telling me not to go. I shoulda listened. Slut.
Sparks - A Woofer In Tweeter's Clothing...actually like the 1st one better, but still think this one goes unnoticed too much.
Spinal Tap - Break Like The Wind...certainly not the masterpiece the soundtrack is, but "Rainy Day Sun" is better than "Listen To The Flower People" and most of the songs really aint too bad, or at least that's what I thought my freshman year when I listened to it every single day.
King Crimson - In The Wake Of Poseidon...I always liked this one better than "In The Court..." but I think people don't really pay too much attention to it because it's pretty similar to the 1st in form...
Pink Floyd - A Saucerful Of Secrets...some people don't realise Syd is on "Remember A Day" as well as "Jugband Blues" but stuff like "Let There Be More Light" and "Corporal Clegg" are at least as good as anything on Piper.
