Re: which of these two long players is MORE of a clunker?

Re: which of these two long players is MORE of a clunker?

BA... I, for one, wholly approve of (occasionally) polling people on "worst"s in regard to EC, or any artist. A while back I'd asked the Wiki crew to name his three worst songs, and I got some really indignant responses. My attitude has always been that, yes, this is a fan's site and we're...
