Dammit, Jackson. I've got enough to do without you toying with my mind!

Imperial Bedroom.

hey, this one's easy!

B&C. 'cause i love every single thing on it.

There's some on IB that just don't quite hang right for me. though, Beyond Belief is worth the price of the entire thing. bliss.

Oh jeeze. I can't believe I'm doing this, but B&C. Maybe it's just a bit fresher to me??? Both are nearly perfect records.

This one's a nail-biter...but it's B&C all the way. For me, "Almost Blue" seals the deal!

This seems like a contradictory statement. Do you dislike "Almost Blue"? Where is your heart?

This is cruel. A couple years ago it would have been Imperial Bedroom hands down, but B&C has really grown on me lately.

Imperial Bedroom by a whisker.

Two of my favourite Elvis albums, but I'd ultimately have to go for Imperial Bedroom. They're definitely both albums I can't do without though.

Yeah I'd go for IB as well, it's got more variety in the songs. Tough though.

This was the hardest by far. When I discovered EC the first masterpiece I came across was IB. It was the first record that told a story from front to finish. Years passed and I became enamored with the artistic raw quality of other artists who also could create a complete work of art in two sides ... The Replacements, Husker Du, ECT.... Then came Blood and Chocolate. The love, anger, remorse, deceit, bile and best wishes all on one recording just blew me away. An unrecognized masterpiece. Have to vote for Blood and Chocolate. 8)

Imperial Bedroom. Mostly because I adore Beyond Belief. That song is so cool! 8)

I don't think Lipstickvogue was clear on her choice. :P
