Give me The Beatles, The Doors and Pink Floyd over those others any day.
Iím a pretty gigantic Who fan, so Iím far from unbiased on this, but itís pretty hard for me to think of a band that was more album-oriented than The Who, at least during the run from Sell Out to Quadrophenia (all of which are brilliant in my opinion). Early and later Who, yes, but those middle albums are pieces of art unto themselves.

I also love Zeppelin and the Stones, Zeppelin quite a lot, but neither tended toward perfect, filler-free albums. With both of those bands Iím happy to listen to even the filler, which is better than anything the Doors ever did (teasing, although I donít know that Iíd actually argue that point), but even at the height of my Zeppelin fandom I was making best-of mixtapes and although I own a lot of Rolling Stones albums, I still also own several compilation albums of theirs. Iím a little more hit-or-miss on Floyd, for whom my enjoyment tends to decrease the more Roger Waters is in charge.

I love the Waters-era Floyd.

It's fantastic though that all these bands have such diversity we can all like bits and pieces or more and still generally be on the same playing field.

Speaking of which, I’ve been in a Stones binge the last few weeks. I listened to all of their albums, through Exile on Main Street. My question is, does TDC like the 60s or 70s Stones better?

60s, but unhappily. My favorite stretch for them actually straddles the decade. Beggars, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile (not that I’m going out on a limb there). But if I had to choose one decade, I think I’d rather listen to the uneven mid-60s stuff than the really uneven mid-70s stuff. Even if that means I lose Fingers, Exile and Some Girls.

Yeah. The first couple of years of the 1970s were awesome. It's rough

That is an incredible stretch of albums. That’s for sure. However, I also like some of their albums before that run as well (The Rolling Stones No2, Out Of Our Hands, Aftermath, Between The Buttons). Brian Jones was a big factor in their 60s success as well.
