Your favorite albums
Ahem...I apologize if this is already in here, but my tired eyes didn't see it anywhere. :shrug
But anyway, this should make for some good discussion: What are your favorite albums and why?
One CD I love and don't leave home without is "Ok Computer" by Radiohead. It's one of those rare albums that doesn't have a single bad song on it, and you can put it in, listen to the whole thing from beginning to end, and become completely drawn in! Great stuff!
I really love my Buddy Jewell album....
It hasn't stopped spinning in my cd player since I bought it. I love him & his music & thought he was a very very deserving winner of Nashville Star, & his album has become a favorite in my cd collection.
Oh great idea for a thread! I would definitely rank OK Computer up there.
Some that are high on my list.
Duncan Sheik, Barely Breathing
Pearl Jam, Ten
Beach Boys, Pet Sounds
The Beatles, Abbey Road
The Doors, The Doors
Led Zeppelin, IV
Micheal Jackson, Thriller (laugh if you will, but I think it's great still)
Prince, Purple Rain
This is toughie, because I have eclectic tastes and love different albums at different times.
However, I could not live without these three albums:
1. The Beatle's "White Album"
2. Tori Amos' "Little Earthquakes"
3. Squeeze's "East Side Story"
These three albums have personal significance to me.
(BTW, I also love OK Computer--my husband lost my CD a few months ago, and I was ready to throttle him!)
I almost put up "White Album" - it was a tough call to pick just one Beatles.
Now I have to go check out Squeeze.
:lol I was almost going to put up "Abbey Road" but I figured may as well go for the double album as a two-fer! I'm a big Beatles' fan, so choosing among their albums is like deciding which child of yours to save from a sinking ship.
I also love Amy Mann's "I'm with Stupid"
And the soundtrack to "Boogie Nights"
If you like Aimee Mann, then you probably like the Magnolia soundtrack (another one of my favs, ironically directed by the director of Boogie Nights, P.T. Anderson)
I have all of Aimee Mann's albums. I'm enjoying the latest one right now. I think she's brilliant, a cutting lyricist and musical crafts(wo)man. Her husband, Michael Penn, did the score and appeared in Anderson's "Boogie Nights" (you might remember him mixing Reed & Dirk's "Feel the Heat"). :lol
edited for idiotic typo
Aja by Steely Dan
Come on Come on by Mary Chapin Carpenter
Born in the USA by Bruce Springsteen
that's it, my biggest problem with many albums is I often don't like at least a thrid to half of the songs.
Tori Amos - Scarlet's Walk
I don't know what it is about that CD. I just love it. Its been in my CD player sense it came out last year. I like how the album tells a story.
Another album that's constantly in my CD player is
Better Than Ezra - How Dose Your Garden Grow.
