i've always heard it like the stuff in the tank...kind of reminds me how i used to misspronounce: neve, neumann, moog...etc. it's not always easy to tell when reading.

Lord (if you don't know how to pronounce this, you haven't been following US politics) AL-gee. Al as in what people call guys named Albert, gee as in gee-whiz.

Oh, I know this one!

Lord: "lurd" rhymes with "herd" or "word"

Alge: "all"-"gay"

"all" rhymes with "hall" or "ball"

"gay" rhymes with "hey" or "pay"

See what I mean, 3 different pronunciations already!
Surely somebody out there works with them or knows them.

"Now, Eliza...every night before you get into bed, where you used to say your prayers, I want you to say "The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain" fifty times. You'll learn to get much further with the Lord if you learn not to offend His ears. "

I hope one day I'm a big enough audio guy that people start threads on how to pronounce my last name.

I think both of those are pronounced "compress the **** out of everything and make it super bright".

I should temper my statement by saying they both do good work that I admire and groove to. I like JJP's stuff with the Goo Goo Dolls and Lincoln and I like American Idiot(CLA) A LOT.
