King Crimson 82-81

Two albums I like but have mixed feelings about.

The Cure 84-59

Muse is a band I've never connected with at all. When I listen to them I feel like they're pandering to 15 year old me. Ingenuine angst overload.

Need to listen to Eureka still.

Duke Ellington 86-75

Winner of BMAA of the year doing well again. I like the album but just doesn't stand out as special to me. Whereas just getting into Duke Ellington.

I'm not familiar enough with the other ones to vote, but Black Holes and Revelations is one of my favorite albums. I like some songs by The Cure, especially Friday I'm in Love (and Just Like Heaven on this album) but I've never fully understood why they are so beloved.
