    1) Popular, commercial rap album from 1990 that went platinum a whole lot of times over, containing one of the most famous songs of that era.

    2) This is the last album of new material by the first non-classical musician to be awarded the Steinway award, and was released in 1993 with a painting by the artist's wife on the cover.

    3) Turn a continent into an animal habitat to get this 1993 album, the fourth straight US number one album for the group.

    4) The first album for this English band since their biggest, which was released in 1987 and went platinum in at least six countries. This 1992 one did very well too, going triple platinum in the US and featuring some of their most famous songs. The title is a nonsense word, but if it were a real thing a rough translation would be to add an important hormone to something.

    6) This 1996 album didn't do as well as it's three predecessors but still topped the billboard charts, and actually outperformed it's immediate predecessor in the UK. The band have had to deny that their name is a slang term for masturbation, while the album title itself might also be rendered as 'without system (or cipher)'.

    7) This 1997 hip-hop album has possibly the most appropriate title ever, and includes a song so famous even I know it. Anyone who wants more of a clue than this, I don't know what they want from me.



    There you go, see how you get on with those.

    More clues for me, though I doubt I'd get them anyway...

    1) Really not sure I know how to give another clue for this without giving it away. I guarantee you that everyone here knows the most successful song on the album. It was parodied by Weird Al Yankovic and the Miami Dolphins.

    2) Appropriate enough that he won a Steinway award given the instrument this guy is most famous for playing.

    3) This one is by a band that was considered the biggest in the world at one point, though the boys from Clontarf aren't always the most popular now.

    4) This album features the songs 'Let's Get Rocked' and 'Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad'/

    6) This is one of four alternative covers for this album by a famous grunge band, each made of fragments of 30 polaroids.

    7) As well as the main rapper, one of the most famous of the 1990s, this album features contributions by a range of guest artists, including Jay-Z, Lil' Kim, Puff Daddy, and R Kelly.

    Giving this until some time tomorrow for some one to win it, otherwise we'll say Gooner is the winner for the first correct answer and I'll reveal the last few.

    OK, so that's time and Gooner wins.

    The correct answers were:

    1) MC Hammer, Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'Em
    2) Billy Joel, River of Dreams
    3) U2, Zooropa
    4) Def Leppard, Adrenalize
    6) Pearl Jam, No Code
    7) Notorious BIG, Life After Death


    As these were all commercial successes and most weren't guessed I think it speaks to just how easy it is to make these too tough!

    Is 5) Enema of the State and 6) Dookie?

    Also sure I know 9) but it's not immediately jumping out at me.

    Edit:scratch that, 9) Purple Rain?

    Is three London Calling, by The Clash.

    Regardless of the answer I'd need clues to get anything else.

    It is, that's 4 for Prime.

    1. Album name is a three letter word that would have been appropriate for the last Summer Olympics
    4. 2015 album by an American rock band that had their origins in Florida. Have had a couple of songs promoted by WWE PPVs, including one from this album.
    7. Arguably Britains biggest boyband, this was their last album as a four-piece.

    Is 1) Rio then? Can't think of anything else that might work.

    I'd guess at the boy band being Take That but couldn't name an album by them. I could probably name a single off it if I had a few guesses but I don't know any of their albums.

    Rio by Duran Duran is correct. Unassailable lead for Prime.

    It is a Take That album, will wait a little while longer before wrapping this up in case anyone wants to take a pop.

    Before I post another one, is the missing one a Shinedown album?

    Whenever it's WWE related and I don't have a clue, it always seems to be Shinedown.

    Right-oh. Let's try and test the theory about whether or not you can make it too easy.




    1)
    2) Amy Winehouse, Back to Black, Gooner
    3) Green Day, American Idiot, Meandi
    4) Lady Gaga, The Fame, Meandi
    5) Kings of Leon, Only by the Night, Gooner
    6) Red Hot Chili Peppers, By The Way, The Dude
    7) Maroon 5, Songs About Jane, Gooner
    8) James Blunt, Back to Bedlam, Gooner
    9)

    Haha well, i guess comparing this with other challenges, this does appear to be easier as I know 5. But I don't want to do another one, so I'll stick to guessing 2:

    3. Amy Winehouse - Back to Black
    7. Maroon 5 - Songs About Jane

    Oh, and the Shinedown album was Threat to Survival

    2-2. Still a chance to steal it and plenty of easy ones left up there. And hey, they all sold tens of millions of copies, so none should be impossible.

    Clues then.

    1) best known album by a Scottish singer, sold a bunch of albums in the late 90s, was re-released a couple of years later and sold a bunch more.

    8) best selling album by an English singer-songwriter. Was a much-mocked figure but is ex-military and has won over many of his detractors with a great sense of humour.

    9) think rap. Huge album and one everyone will have heard.

    I forgot about this, it's been so quiet. Has everyone given up or do people want more clues?

    Meandi needs the last two or you've won.... and I suppose, as you got the first answer, you've technically got it on the tiebreaker already....
