10 Favourite Albums Ever - IN ORDER


#82

Think their most recent record did me in for good. ■■■■■■■ rancid it is!!!


#83

He’s having enough trouble with the numbers…don’t expect so much of him


#84

Lol, yes.
Ok - true story -

I was young - maybe 9 years old.
We were on a family driving trip thing - through the countryside. Backseat, bored, with older sister.
I see a shiny thing in the grass, and get dad to stop the car. It’s a tape. I follow it, winded it up - and it goes for farking ages. The length of a cassette tape, I guess haha. Felt like kilometers (miles).
I collect it all - it’s in about 5 pieces over all, and twisted, wet, muddy, and so on.
I take it home in a paper bag.
It takes me about 3 months - all my summer holiday - but I put the thing together, using sticky tape and scissors to splice. I used a blank cassette housing to spool it up.

That was my first ever album - it worked almost perfectly - Wish You Were Here.
Still my all time favourite.
I swear there is nothing better in this world for me - not sex, not winning lottery - nothing - than to lie down (preferably stoned) and listen to the 17 minutes of Shine On.
It’s been a while, actually.
Must fix that.

Edit - Oh, and it’s the track I’m going out to.

Jesus…who are you? Les Claypool?


#86

With a story like that, you’ll be making @JohnRain jealous.

You’ve certainly upped the story ante :slight_smile:


#87

Nice story @Deckham.
Which reminds me…

#88

Some great tracks on that album. ‘Lazy’ is my favourite though. It’s been a while,must give it a spin soon!


#89

Totally impossible exercise.

I can replay many many times classical symphonies. I do so to focus on tasks, relax and put me at peace or motivate me.

But even my most favourite modern rock/pop/metal/rap/rnb/blues/indie/progressive
albums grind if listened too, too many times.


#90

What are your thoughts on ‘Pinkerton’?

I bought a used copy for a few hundred yen the other day. Hadn’t listened to it before. I thought it was good, but it didn’t leap out/ impress me that much.


#91

Ok, I found 10 that will do for today’s list. But buggered if I can rank them. So in no particular order.

Hunky Dory - David Bowie
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars - David Bowie
Young Americans - David Bowie
Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd
Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
Zeppelin 2 - Led Zeppelin
Night at the Opera - Queen
Hemispheres - Rush
War Child - Jethro Tull
The Turn of a Friendly Card - Alan Parsons Project


#92

Love it, but it took me a while to get there. It’s quite a different beast to The Blue Album (far looser and rough, more uneven), which is still my fave of theirs.
All their albums since have been decidedly uneven, a couple almost embarrassing, but their highs can be very good indeed. Of the later releases Everything Will Be Alright In The End and The White Album are decent enough…


#93

Fuginell, man!
That could work as my top 10 also.


#94

I cant do it.

I did one of these lists once. I felt dirty and couldn’t sleep for a week.


#95

Cheers.

I’ll listen a few more times & hunt down the ‘Blue’ album.


#96

Do it, have a wash and then take a sleeping pill


#97

Albums that I’ve liked for ages that I would still listen to today.
In no particular order -

Gorillaz, Gorillaz
The Beatles, Magical Mystery Tour
Junior Murvin, Police and Thieves
Wire, 154
The Go-Betweens, 16 Lovers Lane
Miles Davis, In a Silent Way
Brian Eno, Another Green World
Elvis Costello, This Years Model
The Pogues, Rum, Sodomy & the Lash
Lou Reed, Transformer


#98

Yep.

Pinkerton is an album that grows on you.

I think I’d have it as my favourite just ahead of the blue album, but I was an angsty teen in 1996.


#99

In Rock - Deep Purple
Zeppelin II
Presence - Zeppelin
Heaven and hell- Sabbath
Tapestry - Carole King
Racing Time - Santers
2112 -Rush
Sad wings of destiny - Judas Priest
Living in the 70’s - Skyhooks
Bark at the moon - Ozzy

I hate myself.
