I hear what you're saying. There were definitely other records that were comparably influential. Still, hard to say 3ft High is anything other than existing in tandem with Paul's Boutique. They were being made at the same time unbnownst to one another. Nation of Millions is pretty different as far as the techniques. Far more chopped up. Equally dope. They have things in common but are all different styles. Gotta give the nod to all 3.
