[font=courier]Alright guys, as I sit here in Graphic Design class, bored out of my ass, I thought of the idea to hold a vote for the best Zappa album.  Now don't close the thread right now!  I know there are best Zappa albums threads and shit, but this one will have a vote system.  I'm kind of curious as to what you guys think.  Basically you'll list your 10 greatest/favorite/most played (that way you shouldn't have a reason not to do this), and your #1 will get 10 points, #2 will get 9, and so on.  Now, I'd like you guys to participate, but if you're really "sick of this shit", or you know there's another thread just like this this (if so tell me so I can shut this down), then don't do it.  :-[<br><br>My ten (roughly but I'll keep it)  :)<br>1.  Freak Out!<br>2.  Apostrophe<br>3.  Roxy & Elsewhere<br>4.  Hot Rats<br>5.  Uncle Meat<br>6.  Civilization Phaze III<br>7.  We're Only in It for the Money<br>8.  Weasels Ripped My Flesh<br>9.  Overnite Sensation<br>10. Absolutely Free<br><br>SO THE LIST AS OF NOW<br><br>Place Points Album<br>1     10     Freak Out!<br>2     09     Apostrophe<br>3     08     Roxy & Elsewhere<br>4     07     Hot Rats<br>5     06     Uncle Meat<br>6     05     Civilization Phaze III<br>7     04     We're Only in It for the Money<br>8     03     Weasels Ripped My Flesh<br>9     02     Overnite Sensation<br>10    01     Absolutely Free[/font]
