This can include side projects, JGB, etc...
I am pretty sure Aoxomoxoa will take it here, though it would not be my choice.

I would actually go with Wake of the Flood. I feel like this album is what unleashed the beast inside that resulted in late 73 being so amazing. So, I chose it for its influence as well as actual sound.

Number two pick? Hmmmm... Shakedown St. This release included Fire on the Mountain of course. Its clear downfall is France.

Surprisingly, In The Dark may be my lowest rated album. Tons of Steel was awful on that release. Esau wasn't on it though it should've been (I am referring to the original release). Push Comes to Shove was mediocre at best. Touch & Throwing Stones, a little West LA were the only songs I ever really listened to.

Clearly It's American Beauty with Wake of the Flood right behind it followed by Blues for Allah, Shakedown Street Workingman's Dead. I say it so it must be so Wink

Though I enjoy many of the tunes on Shakedown, I have a very difficult time getting through the disco feel.

Fucking Bee Gees ruined the decade!

Aoxomoxoa is my favorite album. Behind that would be Anthem of the Sun. 3rd place would be Terrapin Station. Its blasphemy but I never listen to Workingmans or Beauty.

Why did you expect Aoxomoxoa to take it? That album kind of stinks. Garcia/Hunter were not great songwriters yet, they had some interesting and trippy songs like St. Stephen and China Cat but no classics (Mtns of the Moon is kind of a Dead classic but couldn't be held up as an all-timer for the masses). Bad effects marring mediocre songs, crappy album. Anthem of the Sun is like nails on a chalkboard, a cacophony of out of tune instruments. The debut isn't worth a mention. Who'd have thought they'd go on to be the greatest electric combo of all time, a band forever associated with the '60s who only became great in the '70s? (at least all-around great, including songwriting)

I think Workingman's and AM are clearly their greatest records, hard to say which I'd pick. As a young sprat I loved those, Wake of the Flood, Mars Hotel, everything on Blues for Allah except Blues for Allah, or at least H>S>F and Crazy Fingers anyway, Side Two of Terrapin (later Alabama Getaway and Althea maybe too and still later parts of In the Dark). I guess:
1. WD, AB
3. Wake of the Flood
4. Mars Hotel
5. Terrapin, Blues for Allah
7. In the Dark

Shakedown Street sounds like a godawful overproduced soulless pile of junk, like Go to Heaven and Built to Last, and side one of Terrapin. All the albums not included on my list of seven above [CENSORED] shit.

Shit sucking is a pretty harsh term! haha.

I figured Axoamaoxa would win due to the number of people who think the songs on it a great.

I think AB is very overrated... of the pair, AB or WD, I definitely prefer workingman's.

Hard for me to imagine thinking the Dead's best songs are on Aox. China Cat of course matured into a masterpiece, but songcraft really came with the next album. You're probably right that WD is stronger over all, but Candyman and Brokedown Palace alone are probably enough to put AB in a tie.

BLUES FOR ALLAH all day long. I know its only my opinion, but In my Opinion, I don't think that band became the Grateful Dead until that release. It was unlike any other album that they had but out, and they just grew from there. After Blues, I would have to go with Terrapin Station. Man I just love that album. I can still remember buying it, and a friend of mine wanted to borrow it, and I was having no part of it, When I got to Terrapin station and Lady with with a fan, I just count't stop it down. I was magical to me and I couldn't put it down. It was pure bliss, and I still remember being on a school field trip for four days in New Hampshire, and it was pretty much all I listened to. I couldn't wait to get home and call some friends of mine who were dead heads and find some live material of Terrapin.

ANTHEM OF THE SUN!
This is the only studio album I really love to listen to exactly because of the weird effects on it ... the additions etcc . Its like a collage picture ... so Picasso like ....
