Title self explanatory.

What are the greatest solo records?

One rule: the artist had to be known primarily as working within their former band. In other words, you can't say Van Morrison "Astral Weeks" because he was in Them. He is primarily known for his solo career.

Shortlist to get us started:

Dennis Wilson - Pacific Ocean Blue
GH - All Things Must Pass
Raekwon - Only Built 4 Cuban Linx
GZA - Liquid Swords
Morrissey - Viva Hate
Paul Stanley - s/t
Thurston Moore - Psychic Hearts
Chris Bell - I Am the Cosmos
Donald Fagen - Nightfly
Peter Murphy - Deep
George Clinton - Computer Games

I've been seeing a lot of anti-Syd sentiment lately. I haven't listened to this in its entirety since probably college. I should give it a spin again.

That's a good one! I might give the edge to The Believer -- even though The Instigator has way more guest stars.

Dang! You reminded me of all the great albums that came out from the various members of CSN. Crosby's If I Could Only Remember My Name is sooo good.
