Good choice, but I like Fahrenheit much better. It's my absolute favourite album ever. Fahrenheit deserves 100!

Anyway, great to see someone else liking Joseph Williams' vocals. That man is a god! :)

I'll add five quickly and write in more detail at a later time:

Journey - Escape
Bon Jovi - Slippery When Wet
Boston - Boston
Van Halen - Van Halen 1
don't laugh: Europe - Final Countdown

One quick comment, I mentioned these five off the top because they are not revisionist history picks i.e. over time they became 100's. These were 100's at the time of release. Slippery and Final Countdown were two albums I grew up on and to a lesser extent Escape. The VH and Boston albums were before my time but I loved them when I heard them on the radio and eventually owned them.

JV, I understand that Burning Heart was supposed to be included in WSC. If it was then would you have given it 100%? Personally I would have liked it in there.

And speaking of underrated, no one seems to appreciate the guitar solo at the end of Burning Heart in particular 3.18 to 3.33. One of the most beautifully toned, effective, technically adept guitar work ever put on record imo.

JV what kind of headset would you recommend to listen to these albums? Im planning to get the Dr. Dre ones called "Beats Audio". Sorry for the little tangent.
