Just a few of my favorite RIO-Avant Albums!! Choose your favorite!! Obviously I have a bias for Residents, so I added a massive amount of Res on this poll.. And Not Available ended up on my last poll, so that may be might vote.. But all wonderful, extremely differing albums here..

I've been possessed by a RIO spirit for about a year now Evil Smile Just simply love these wonderfully-creative albums.

And I have to say, after listening to SO MUCH Zappa (everything from Freak Out! to Joe's Garage Act I, excluding Ruben) Zappa is the most genius artist I've ever heard. Each albums sounds completely different from the last one, and even his extra-sides (Burnt Weeny and Weasels, and I believe Chunga's Revenge is also extra-sides) are all fantastically-complete. 
He's the modern classical-composer, and there'll never be another--and there's never been anybody to try and imitate him, only people that have been inspired by him. 

I own 20 albums from him, and they're all wonderfully unique (I also enjoy Jazz From Hell, which I own)

Of the one's I've heard I'd go with We're Only in it for the Money, but had to disqualify myself on this one because of too many albums that I haven't heard yet.

LegEnd followed by the three other Henry Cow albums, Uncle Meat, Weasels, and Meet the Residents. Good selections!

Of the ones I've heard, "We're only in it for the Money" gets my vote. I have to liste to the 4 I don't know, so my vote could change.

I'll go for Western Culture

Could as easily have gone for 

Any of the Henry Cow's
California
A Little Man & A House...
Onze Danses Pour Combattre La Migraine

If you'd put any of 3 other early UZ albums that would also have been a challenger

Tough call.

I'll go with Western Culture over Weasels..., Uncle Meat, Heatwave, and DV.

Heatwave for me. Funeral Plain is one of my all time favourite Avant pieces.

Too many choices and too many challenges to loyalties - it is the whole genre  that needs to be voted up.  Even Genesis went avant on 'The Waiting Room'.  I went for IPOL for the sake of voting...an album that should have captured more mainstream prog consciousness/wider success - its opener is less than 3 mins (the kick ass War).  The album is better than anything achieved by bands such as King Crimson, etc.

After a lot of trying, I've finally got to understand the Cardiacs. I really like most of A Little Man....... and I'm currently working on Sing to God. But generally, this genre ain't my thing.

Such a lot of things I love here...meaningful choice is impossible Confused

Anyway, I voted for the Jean-Claude Vannier because it's really great and nobody else did yet...
