Tuesday Night Random Live Thread

Robert Mayer-US PRESSWIRE

This is one of our nightly live threads. This means that you are welcome to discuss any subject that you wish but in keeping with the rules of the site we ask that you refrain from the discussion of politics and religion. Please remember that this thread takes place on the front page of the site, is not a CKC and as such try to keep things as near to PG as possible. Keep this in mind with the posting of pics as well and we ask that you keep them to a maximum of 5 per person and do not post Gifs. This keeps the thread load time from slowing down for those on slower connections.

This is the sixteenth post in a series of top 100 "debut" albums of all time. AKA the best first album of some of the best artist of all time. Like previously stated I will be skipping over a few selections along the way to save us from the obvious pain of listening to some crap. Tonight I will leap frog the New York Dolls debut (even though I understand the greatness and significance of their debut). Tonight's feature at number 52 is the 1980 debut from the Irish band U2, "Boy". U2 is one of those band's that seem to split music fans with many loving them and many hating them. Three things though can not be denied- 1) Their influence on music to follow. 2) Bono (Paul Hewson) has one of the greatest male voices of all time. 3) The Edge's (Dave Evans) unique style of play went on to influence many of the next generation of guitar players.
