Poll
If those are, indeed, the top three choices, which one would you take?
Rolling Stones- Sticky Fingers
U2- The Joshua Tree
Bob Dylan- Blood on the Tracks

You may have noticed that I didn't include "I wouldn't choose any of that dreck", or "Wow, the choice is so tough because I want them all".
Too bad for you.
Don't vote if you don't want to, or can't, choose.

I figure that any comments below will be full of the former sentiment, with scattered defending of each group (if not of each particular album).

Also, I predict that alternate choices than these three will be presented, from "more deserving" artists.
So be it, but that ain't the debate here...

U2 has taken an early lead. With good reason, in my opinion.

Since U2 are possibly the worst "popular" band ever, then the answer by default must be one of the other two. I consider it a toss-up.

There are many more U2 haters than there are fans, but in terms of album material strength, Joshua Tree is solid.
Sticky Fingers is an odd choice of album, to me. That's the one I don't get.

Almost everyone craps on Nickelback (I'm not a fan), too, but they've sold more than 50 million albums worldwide.
I could handle that kind of criticism from the haters too, if I was making a dime or a quarter in royalties x 50 million.

I would argue Let it Bleed.

Addendum: I mean, don't get me wrong, Exile on Main Street is a big collection of great music, but does any of it come close to the peaks of Gimme Shelter, Midnight Rambler or You Can't Always Get What You Want? Even Live with Me and Monkey Man have a blood-in-the-teeth, streetfighting bite that's missing from the boozy, pants-optional Exile.

I bought Joshua Tree after it won the Grammy for album of the year. I couldn't raise enough interest to listen to it a second time.

Sticky Fingers has "Wild Horses," "Can't You Hear Me Knocking," "Moonlight Mile," "Bitch," and "Brown Sugar."

Blood on the Tracks has "Shelter from the Storm," "Tangled Up in Blue," "Simple Twist of Fate," "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go," and "Buckets of Rain."

Okay -- as much as I love "Wild Horses" -- Blood on the Tracks.

www.acclaimedmusic.net, a Swedish statistician's distillation of hundreds of critics' best of lists, has:

Blood on the Tracks at #20 (although behind Blonde on Blonde at #9 and Highway 61 Revisited at #11)
The Joshua Tree at #39 (with Achtung Baby at #82 and War not coming until #315)
Sticky Fingers at #47 (behind Exile on Main St. at #7, Beggars Banquet at #28, and Let It Bleed at #33)


As stated ("Best Album"), I'd have to go with Blood on the Tracks. If it was "Best Rock Album" or "Best Rock & Roll Album" I'd go with Sticky Fingers given those choices.

I own every U2 album from Boy to Joshua Tree. Beautiful music. Everything after that was garbage.

devil I did say generally acknowledged. I personally have a great love for Her Satanic Majesties' Request, but I realize I'm in a small minority there. devil

Fixed your typos. That album is on my favorites list, too, and I wanted to let you know you're not the only one. It's so weirdly non-Stones-like, but it's quite good.

Satanic Majesties/Beggars Banquet/Let It Bleed/Sticky Fingers is surely the Stones' best four-album span. For my tastes only Some Girls and Black and Blue are in the same part of the stratosphere. (As albums -- there are some songs, like "Tumbling Dice," "Jumping Jack Flash," "Honky Tonk Woman," and "Satisfaction," that are essentially unparalleled.)

I'll agree with War vs. The Joshua Tree, bit I'd pick Beggar's Banquet as the Stones best. Blood on the Tracks, to me, slightly edges Highway 61 Revisited, but not by much.

The stones produced the only listenable album in that list, so there we go. Joshua tree is such a boring listen, may as well be listening to one song on loop (no one ever game them points for creativity though). Bob Dylan, well his best song is the Jimi cover of all along the watchtower.
