Two classic W.A.S.P. albums, you decide. My pick is the concept album The Crimson Idol, there is something about that release that the 80's albums didn't have. I want to see what y'all think on this one.

Love the band and dig both albums but I gotta go with CRIMSON IDOL. Bits of LAST COMMAND haven't aged very well at all ("Runnin' Wild in the Streets," anyone?) but CRIMSON IDOL still holds up as a great conceptual piece and a compelling listen.

Last Command on the weight of "Blind In Texas" alone. Aside from the entire S/T my faverite WASP tune!

If we were talking about what I'd usually reach for when I'm in the mood for W.A.S.P., it'd be The Last Command.

But....I voted for the Crimson Idol, it's a better and stronger album all around. Quite a bit of Last Command doesn't hold water anymore

I voted Last Command because I hate concept albums. Although, I like quite a few songs from The Crimson Idol. My favorite WASP is still The Headless Children.

I don't know what it was about W.A.S.P. back in the day, but I guess I sort of thought that they were somewhat silly. Having said that, there were those moments within both their self titled and "The Last Command", where I felt I should purchase both. I did that about five years ago and sort of felt like that's where it would end with this band. Then I listened to "Inside the Electric Circus" and "The Headless Children" and decided I liked those as well. If anything, Blackie seemed to be maturing as a song writer with each release. Yesterday, I believe it was maybe the second time that I've listened to "The Crimson Idol" and this is clearly an album I need to purchase. For the most part, I'm not too keen on conceptual albums, but this album for myself is their pinnacle. I did pick up "Golgotha" some time last year and have enjoyed that quite a bit...

Anyone have suggestions on that period between "The Crimson Idol" and "Golgotha"?

I went with the Last Command. I never understood all the whoop-de-doo about the Crimson Idol. It's good but not that good. And count me in the crowd who thinks the Headless Children is W.A.S.P.'s best album.

I highly reccomend Unholy Terror.
