I chose Floyd. Prior to DARK SIDE, they were quite experimental, and more of a cult favorite. It gave them success, and turned them into the arena rock they eventually became.

Zeppelin for me. IV just isn't my fave...the first 3 were much better.

I tend to only listen to Zep boots myself, good soundboards from the "73-'77 tours, although Physical Graffitti and Presence are my faves. Achilles Last Stand is my fave Zep tune. I uploaded on Youtube a Czech TV show called Na Kloboucku featuring among others top Czech guitarist Radim Hladik[Matadors,Modry Efekt,etc]. They do a pretty neat version of Ramble On, if anyone wants to "czech it out";

also, Modry Efekt aka Blue Effect live in Prague, 1999;

For me the most overrated of these is Sgt.Pepper. I understand the technical achievements/innovative use of the studio aspect but at the end of the day it's just not an LP that's gonna spin in my house very often. Heck, Yoko's FLY is better than Sgt.Pepper.

I agree. I much prefer the White Album over Sgt. Pepper.

Personally I don't think "dark side" is overrated at all, but everyone is free to their opinion and i'll exercise mine.

Now you are talking my language. The White Album is up there amongst the greatest LPs of all time and Helter Skelter one of my all time favorite songs!! I should add that I do like A Day In The Life ALOT from Pepper but not much else.

I chose Sgt. Pepper, as well. But, I've always felt The Beatles were overrated in general.

Zeppelin IV is sorta overrated, too.

Dark Side of the Moon, I think is awesome. Seems many here see it as the beginning of a downward slope for Pink Floyd. Me, I love 'em all the way up to The Final Cut.
